Cape Town and the surrounding winelands amounts to quite a large area, from one side to the other over a hundred kilometres. Cape Town itself is a vast city with hundreds of hotels, guesthouses, B&Bs, etc. Because it is so big, when deciding on a hotel, make sure that it is within walking distance from the Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC)

CTICC Address: Convention Square, 1 Lower Long Street, Cape Town, 8001

CTICC GPS co-ordinates: 33° 54’ 56” S by 18° 25’ 36” E).  


Most hotels in the vicinity do offer a shuttle service to CTICC and/or the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront, but best to check first. If you book a hotel a bit further afield, you should consider renting a car (there is parking available at CTICC).
