We are staying in Cape Town for a month in Feb 09 and have beef offered a great deal on an apartment on (36) Roeland St (Hip Hop Plaza). I have read a posting however that Roeland St is seedy and although we would taxi by night wondered if it is safe during the day (i.e. leaving/returning to the building on foot). We have been to CPT 3 times (Green Point mainly) so know to be careful. An alternative would be Sea Point, Garden or maybe we ought to settle for Camps Bay. V&A is great but rentals are hugely expensive by comparison.
