What is a serviced apartment?


Serviced apartments in Cape Town are an experience and not just a budget version of accommodation for a business trip to South Africa’s capital. One of the crucial aspects of our short term apartments in Cape Town is ensuring your privacy is guaranteed. Without the scheduled timings that a hotel may keep you to, our fully furnished apartments in Cape Town allow you to conform to your own timetable.

With the inclusion of a fully equipped kitchen, serviced apartments in Cape Town cater for greater flexibility. This can be in terms of when you would like to eat or what you would like to cook. This means that if you have had a long day conducting business, you can relax or cook within your own abode. Furthermore, a hotel room does not offer these amenities for a casual night in, relying on the more expensive and stressful option of having to eat out.
Prime for business travel, our long or short term apartments in Cape Town can be booked for any duration of time. This means that if you are relocating, travelling for a short while or staying in another office for a long duration, our fully furnished apartments in Cape Town have the availability and accessibility for a business trip to Cape Town. 

What do I need to know about staying in Cape Town?


Transport

Cape Town has steadily evolved its transportation network throughout the years and now has a brilliant transport system in place. The most common way of getting around is via taxi. This is a safe and secure way of travelling around the city and can be cheap through companies such as Uber. There are also trains and private buses which are both affordable and can get you to most places in the city. If you would rather commute to places on your own, then it is also incredibly easy to hire cars throughout the city.

Weather

With minimal rain from December to April, Cape Town enjoys constantly high temperatures with highs of 29 degrees and lows of 15 degrees. There is more rain between May and November and lower averages of temperatures.

Cuisine

With its close proximity to the sea, a well-loved dish in Cape Town is fish and chips. Brought about through its British Colonial routes, South Africa’s cuisine is heavily influenced by British culture. South Africa is also well known for its gorgeous steakhouses and abundance of biltong which is often consumed as a snack. As with most countries, Cape Town has a very culturally diverse population, which means that there are plenty of Asian and European restaurants available.

Language

English is commonly spoken in South Africa; however, the main languages consist of Zulu, Xhosa and Afrikaans. However, due to widespread media and the government speaking English, it is known as the most commonly used language. This is useful for when travelling on business and staying at one of our serviced apartments in Cape Town.
