16 reviews for Shortmarket Street Self-Catering Apartment – up to 2 persons

  1. Great central location, large apartment with modern furniture, very nice view over Greenmarket Square. The host Guido was really nice, welcoming and accommodating. The nearby parking bay was very convenient.

  2. L’appartement en plein centre du Cap est idéalement situé pour profiter de la vie diurne et nocturne. Il est confortable et vaste. Guido et Henk sont très serviables.

  3. Henk was very friendly and the apartment was perfect. It’s on a busy square but there’s a solid door to close off the bedroom which makes it nice and dark and quite. Apartment includes everything I’d need – small refrigerator, coffee machine, and a great amount of space. They have printed out some recommendations for restaurants in the area (there are a lot) and there’s a grocery store just across the square. All in all, great stay!

  6. I can’t imagine there is a better place to stay and to explore Cape Town.
    Our apartment is located on the Green Market Square, in the centre of Cape
    Town. 2 minutes walk from the included private covered parking garage. The
    bus stop for the hop-on hop-off sight seeing tour (red and blue) is also a 2
    minutes walk. The Greenmarket square is very nice with a lot of restaurants,
    cafes and a supermarket. Also you can walk to a lot of interesting places,
    like Waterfront, Company’s Garden, etc. The apartment itself is more like a
    loft with a lot of space. Very nice decorated a large and nice bed. Henk and
    Guy are very friendly and experts in advising how to explore Cape Town.

  7. “excelente!!”
    Ficamos no centro da cidade. Tudo foi impecável, o apartamento é lindo, muito limpo, moderno, tem todo o necessário para uma excelente estadia. O atendimento é excelente, os proprietários são queridos e eficientes. Não tivemos nenhum problema com segurança no centro da cidade, fomos à noite nos restaurantes indicados pelos anfitriões e tudo foi muito tranquilo, há muitos seguranças cuidando dos turistas. Há uma feira de artesanato em frente, mas achamos tudo muito tranquilo, circulamos várias vezes entre os vendedores, que são muito amáveis. A única parte triste foi ter que ir embora deste lugar tão agradável.

  10. Great flat in the middle of the center of Cape Town. Extremely well decorated, great bathroom, everything is amazing and you feel like home. One more point which makes it attractive is the private parking if you hire a car. Do not miss this address!!

  12. Fantastisch appartement in het hartje levendig Kaapstad Zeer smaakvol ingericht en zeer ruim appartement in het hartje van de stad.
    Bewaakte parkeergarage om vrij te parkeren is ideaal. Uitzicht op levendig plein. Eigenaars zijn buitengewoon vriendelijk en behulpzaam.

  13. Nach Purple House erkennt man in diesem sehr schön gestalteten Appartement den guten Geschmack von Henk und Guido. Hier stimmt alles, man fühlt sich sofort wohl – fast wie zuhause. Der Ausblick auf das alte Rathaus und auf den Greenmarket ist super. Morgens, wenn die Händler ihre Marktstände aufbauen, wird es manchmal ein bisschen laut. Wen das stört, der kann die Schiebewand vom Schlafzimmer schliessen. Selfcatering ist kein Problem, die Küche ist gut ausgestattet und gegenüber gibt es einen tollen Supermarkt sowie in der Shortmarket und Long Street eine Menge guter Restaurants für Frühstück und Dinner. Im Kimberley House könnte man es länger aushalten …

  14. Pro’s: “We stayed at the spacious apartment right on Greenmarket Square. Henk and Guido were lovely hosts and had great recommendations for restaurants and places to visit in Cape Town. The apartment is equipped with everything you need, including a nespresso coffee maker. Greenmarket square is a great starting point to explore the city. The hop on hop off bus tour starts just a minute walk from the house. We really enjoyed our stay!”

    Cons: Given the central location, this might not be the best place for people that are looking for something really quite. For us, this was not a problem and we enjoyed the convenient location.
