"We had a great stay and enjoyed getting settled at the start of our trip to Cape Town at 33 South. The location was close enough to the main road restaurants and bars, but far enough down the street to feel safe and quiet. It was convenient to the train and also easy to park on the street. I'd recommend this place to my friends."
