Cape Town the More Quarters Way

The Mother City remains one of the most coveted tourism destinations in the world, and it is easy to understand why. There are so many ways to appreciate Cape Town, and one need not necessarily fit into a pre-set itinerary, or stay at an internationally branded large-scale (and priced) hotel to do so. More Quarters promises a unique Cape experience for the specific type of traveller who prefers to live Cape Town like a local, without having to forsake on service and luxury.

We’ve put together a list of the top 10 things that define Cape Town the More Quarters way.

1. This is no chain hotel. If you are the type of traveller who enjoys having your own private space to kick off your shoes wherever they land, make a cup of coffee, listen to your favourite music while enjoying a romantic carpet picnic, watch a marathon set of classic movies on TV or spend a long productive evening at the kitchen counter in front of your laptop, then More Quarters is for you. But we’re never far. Your bed will be made, your apartment kept spotless, your breakfast, fresh orange juice and favourite newspaper ready each morning. At More Quarters, you get to be our guest, but to live like a Capetonian at the same time!

Kloof Street pulses with a distinctive character and endless energy. You’ll find quirky shops (from small art galleries to craft and design shops, to beautiful furniture stores), colourful and beautiful people from all walks of life, and other random delights. This place is real!

Lion’s Head forms part of the Table Mountain range and provides a scenic backdrop to the City of Cape Town. Lion’s Head is best known for its stunning views of the Mother City and Table Bay on one side, and the Atlantic shoreline on the other, which makes the hour-long walk to the top really worth the effort.

Conde Nast’s travel writer, Maria Shollenbarger, called the food scene here “smallish, casual but supremely stylish, and welcoming”
