Cape Town Holiday Apartments
When it comes to Cape Town accommodation for either the business or leisure traveller staying in the vibrant cosmopolitan city centre is an enjoyable way to experience everything this rich city has to offer. The Icon situated at the bottom of Long Street is a landmark built in the 30’s which offers stylish, modern fully furnished Cape Town holiday apartment rentals.
Being situated on Long Street means you truly will have your finger on the pulse of this pumping city. It’s the road where all the cities happening night spots can be found and some of the best restaurants on offer can be found in the vicinity. Situated near the bottom of this busy street it is more peaceful and thus the ideal location to rest your head. Its proximity to the international convention centre makes it ideal Cape Town accommodation for the business traveller.
The balcony offers stunning views of the city and signal hill, and inside is no less appealing. The fully equipped open plan kitchen and sitting area creates the perfect setting for entertaining new friends. The bedroom, with queen size bed is separate and has an en-suite bathroom with shower. The apartment includes a large flat screen television with satellite channels and Wi-Fi internet access. The building is secure and has a 24hr concierge. The ground floor has retail space with a selection of fine restaurants in case your kitchen skills are more Jackson Pollock than Jamie Oliver.
The location of the building makes it an optimal place for a Cape Town holiday apartment rental, situated right in the heart of the CBD it is ideal for any business traveller, yet within walking distance of some of Cape Town’s top tourist attractions it is perfect for holiday makers. The waterfront is a short walk away as is the famous Greenmarket square. The waterfront offers attractions for every type of person, from shopping to boat trips as well as restaurants that will tantalise every palette. Greenmarket square is an old market square off Long Street where all manner of African curious and mementos can be bought. The often overlooked Cape Town fort is also only a short distance away and well worth a visit to learn more about Cape Town during the early days of colonial rule. A stone’s throw, literally, from the castle is the original City Hall; this beautiful old building is often ignored by tourists, although it holds no administration purpose any longer it often hosts art exhibitions and musical events.
The land on which the Icon stands is all reclaimed from the ocean as is the entire foreshore area of Cape Town. This is remarkable when you realise how many massive construction projects have been completed there in the last few decades. The Cape Town international convention centre is undoubtedly the largest.
The N1 and the N2 are both easily accessible from this side of town which means getting to or from the airport is as easy as getting onto the freeway and if arriving from out of town by car you will no doubt come in on one of these roads which means finding your Cape Town accommodation will be easy.
