Welgelegen, as its name ("well-located") in Dutch suggests, is perfectly situated in the heart of Cape Townâ€™s city bowl. Kloof Street is just a 2 minutes walk away, where you will find many of Cape Townâ€™s finest restaurants and bars, and plenty to occupy your evening. Also within easy walking distance are the Mount Nelson hotel, Cape Mediclinic, Company Gardens, National Museum & Art Gallery, Parliament buildings and Greenmarket Square.
This delightful boutique hotel in Cape Town’s downtown area is just a minute’s walk from all the bars and restaurants on elegant Kloof Street. Nestled in the shadow of Table Mountain, this Victorian house is set in a leafy cul-de-sac in the residential district of ‘Gardens’. Welgelegen is Dutch for ‘well-situated’ and it certainly is convenient for all the attractions of the city. The V&A Waterfront is at the centre of dining, shopping and live music entertainment with many museums and historical sites close by. A tour to one of the local wineries is a must whilst staying here, along with a boat trip to historic Robben Island.
