Overall we enjoyed our stay though there are things that need urgent attention . both rooms are in desperate need of an air conditioner . they were extremely hot as a result we were not able to have a good sleep . the internet situation is dire as well . an easier way of accessing the internet is urgently needed...

We rented a 1 bdrm. apartment for a 5 night stay for a precruise stay. It is about 3 easy blocks to the water taxi which will take you to the V&A Waterfront. Catch it behind the convention center. If it isn't running it's a 50 Rand taxi hop. The room was spacious, clean, had all of the essentials including... More

It's been our 5th stay at Afribode's fantastic apartments. I can't imagine staying anywhere else. Truly a home away from home. One suggestion I do have, is to place mirrors in the rooms, as at the moment the Afrinest apartment only has one in the bathroom.

A bit too informal, no front desk. Was not aware tha afribode is not part of home away from home so just apartment, not quite hotel. Had to call for check out. Never saw agent through out my stay. They knockoff? Otherwise place is clean and very central, close to myciti bus so traveling around Cape Town was easy. Fairly... More

We felt very safe stying in this apartment right in the middle of Cape Town city. There are security present at all times at the front entrance and you can only enter the building wia a swipe card. Everything is provided in this apartment, but it is not like a hotel where you have staff coming in every day to... More

My experience was not a pleasant one. I was given the incorrect directions and it was laughed off saying: "I thought you were from Cape Town". The bathroom was damp, shower drain blocked. Toilet makes noises the entire night... I survived, but never again. 2 stars!

Beautiful apartment, centrally located with beautiful views of the city and the table mountain.However, the fact that you have to park your car at the opposite building and walk across and navigating through those many passages can be scary.

Upon arrival to Capetown, we were greeted by the taxi driver that Afribode had arranged for us at 300 ZAR (30 USD)..Price is not bad considering we arrived around 10pm at night, and he took us straight from the airport to the apartment... When we arrived to the apratment (Cartwright Corner), we were greeted by one of Afribodes friendly staff,... More
