I was in flat 2. Apartment very well located on Long St in amongst the bars/clubs... Good little balcony to soak up the atmosphere in the evening... If staying here I think you need to be prepared to go out and hit the sauce/dancefloor most nights as the party is all around you... Decent kitchen, good apartment, has cooker, hob,... More

We stayed 2 nights and liked the location very much. You can explore the city daily from this area. The apartments come with a cozy design and are in good shape. As other reviews were mentioning before this apartment has serious noise issues. The beats from the club underneath the rooms kick you out of the bed until 3am. Sleeping... More

Stayed in one of Daddy Long Leg's self-catering apartments on Long Street for 7 days with my husband and our 1-year old. The apartment in itself was fine - the kitchen utensils need upgrading though... But the noise... We've stayed on Long Street before and know it's not the most quiet place in CPT but the noise level in this... More

Impressed by the nice apartment which was facing Long Street. Well equipped, appreciated the washing machine, comfortable, clean, safe (at least if your neighbours lock all the doors), but don't expect much from sleep quality: We stayed for three nights, arrived on Saturday, and the night was extremely noisy! The noisiest place I've ever stayed in. The noise wasn't too... More

Of all the places I stayed in SA, this was the most expensive one. It wasn't bad, but I wouldn't say it was worth the money. There was two of us, and we wanted the smaller apartment, but that wasn't given to us. The location makes the place. Right on Long St, in the middle of everything, which is exactly... More

The apartments on the main street are definately better than those with the side entrance. Quirky and clean, however noise is a problem and you need ear plugs! We enjoyed our stay, Long Street is great, good cafe's, bars and restaurants. Not recommended for families with children. The stairs are pretty tight with heavy cases.

Still Impossible to sleep in these apartment during the night. Bars all around and party going on till very late. I had to sleep in the morning. Not sure what management did to make this place more comfortable as claimed. To give an example during the day you can follow conversations from the bar through the floor. Of course I... More

Booked last minute for 2 nights online on recommendation. Check in at main hotel five mins down the road. Stairs difficult with heavy cases and entrance located down a side alleyway which is a bit daunting at night while trying to fumble with the lock and metal gate. The apartment itself was lovely and spacious with modern bathroom. As others... More

I met a pal down in Capetown and he'd booked us one of the Daddy Long legs Apartments. I'd stayed in the famous Daddy nLong Legs Hotel, so this was a bit different - a tidy wee spot, right off Long Street. Secure, clean, so happy days. And, amazingly, not so noisy! A nice option if you want to upgrade... More
