Just located in busy area, the place is just on the top of a night club, so the bed was vibrating all night !! Very weak or inexistant wifi. I do not recommend at all this place unless you are not interested by sleeping or your are ok with fights in the street too

Booking the place was so easy, its clean and everything you need is there I would definitely recommend it, however the flat is quite warm in January despite of the aircons in the rooms. Ask the daddy group the please switch the aircons on before your arrival. Also don't expect much sleep as the apartment is in long street. But... More

The place itself is cool with a neighbourhood that can be explored by foot, good restaurants, bars, live music, etc. But like others have mentioned, don't expect a place to calm down since you are literally situated above a club that plays great live music the whole night, floors vibrating included. Parking might be a bit tricky depending on the... More

Location is great if you want to party, but we didn't read the reviews and booked in for 10 nights! You can't sleep before 6am and it's not the street noise, it's the bass from the nightclub next the the bedrooms that shakes the whole room! The rooms are spacious, but dated, the TV is out of the 80's and... More

My husband and I stayed at Daddy Long Legs Self Catering apartments for only one night. It is very well located on Long Street, in Cape Town but it is surrounded by many loud clubs/bars so it is very noisy. The check in process is easy and efficient with such friendly and helpful staff. The apartment itself is well equipped... More

Booked in on Friday 20 November and checked out on Monday 23 November 2015. Good location if you are a party person and want to be close to all the pubs / bars / clubs. Not a good choice if you are looking for peace and quiet. We have music blaring all night starting at 18:00 and ending at 06:00am.... More

Hi Bronley, Thank you for the valuable feedback. As the apartments are located on Long Street, which is the veritable nightlife hub of Cape Town city centre, there may, from time to time, be loud music and noise coming from the many bars and clubs that line Long Street. We do do our utmost best to minimise the noise levels... More

The location is central and the apartment has a nice size and the facilities needed for a longer stay. However the noise is extreme. In the backyard a huge ventilator makes extreme noise and blows bacon smell into the apartment if you open the window. The noise from the street is as expected but the worst loud music is coming...
