City Center Travel Guide

Hotels in City Center

Since 1899, this pink-faced colonial beauty—just a stroll away from the Company Gardens—has been the reigning queen of Cape Town’s hotels.

Restaurants in City Center

Though the nighttime views are lovely at this spare, modern 80-seat restaurant (set on the second floor of a Victorian, it has a glass-enclosed dining room that looks over twinkling city lights), the real eye candy here is culinary.

Things to do in City Center

Many of Cape Town’s best contemporary galleries are in easy walking distance of one another in the city center. Begin at the AVA Gallery, a nonprofit multimedia gallery in historic quarters that gives special attention to Western Cape artists.
