Get the Party Started at the Long Street Hotel

The bedroom at the Long Street Hotel in Cape Town, South Africa.

Long Street is Cape Town’s party central. This boulevard is part counter-culture hangout and part mainstream bachelor/bachelorette/stag/hen parties. Whether you lean right, left or confused, Long Street is the place to let your hair down and let it all hang out. The Long Street Hotel was a great base to experience the livelier side of the city.

We ended up on Long Street after a long day of travel from Zambia, but just in time to celebrate Laura’s birthday. We opted for drinks and burgers at Royale Eatery – a gourmet burger shop. After dinner, a short stroll along Long Street gave us a view into where Cape Town goes to party.

The staff at the Long Street Boutique Hotel gave us tips for driving the Cape Peninsula and the Cape Point Route – this is one of the world’s most thrilling drives as you start out heading over the Chapman’s Peak Drive cut into the side of a cliff above the Atlantic Ocean below. The also gave us tips to visit Constantia and the Cape Winelands along with the other top Cape Town Attractions.

The Room

The Rooms: Rooms at the Long Street Hotel are loft-like. This is a boutique hotel, so there are only a few rooms per floor. Rooms on the back-side of the hotel are much quieter than the rooms that face out onto Long Street. Despite being a rainy, winter evening, there was some noise from the street, but didn’t really bother us.

The WiFi: The room had excellent wifi service.

The Television: There is a large-screen TV in the bedroom, although we didn’t watch any TV.
