Small Luxury hotel in Cape Town in central area?

Hi Everyone,

I'd like to find a small, luxury hotel in Cape Town that's very central and in walking distance to sights, restaurants, shops...basicly easy to explore from. What would you recommend? Which part of Cape Town should I be looking in?

Many thanks for your help.

Well, An African Villa is highly praised by everyone...it's not a hotel, but a 4 star Guest House. The city centre, shops, restaurants are in easy reach. Jardin d Ebene is also a luxurious Guest House not too far from the city centre.

Have a look at southafrica-stay.com for more accommodation in Cape Town. There are many to choose from. Why not try accommodation in Camps Bay? There you will find many luxurious Guest Houses, B&Bs, and Hotels and it's only 5km from the city centre.

We stayed at Jardin d´ebene in the beginning of March for 8 nights. We liked it very much. It is small (only 4 rooms) and luxurious (in our opinion). Go for the big rooms (Elephant or Zebra), if you want something special. The guesthouse is located in Tamboerskloof, which is close to the city centre. There are some restaurants within walking distance. We also used to walk to the city centre where most of the sights and shops are. It is something like 15 minutes walk but we didn't mind. In the night, you need to take a taxi to the restaurants and bars that are located in the city centre but not to the ones that are nearby. The staff at Jardine is extremely friendly. We really enjoyed lounging at the terrace, drinking South African wine and talking with the rest of the guests and of course, Ulrike (one of the owners). It was just perfect. We also found the location very convenient for excursions out of the city.

Stay at the Cape Grace!!! It's not huge but it is luxury and the staff seem to know what you want before you do yourself!!!! Only just off the Waterfront, try for a room over-looking where the yachts are moored it's quiet and the seals play in there, especially morning and evening.

The Cape Heritage Hotel on Bree St is in a building about 300 years old, only has 15 bedrooms and they are gorgeous. I can't recommmend it enough.
