The noise levels at the apartments are of the extreme kind and not recommended. We could not sleep because of the bars and nightclubs underneath and next door to the apartments. The locals partied throughout the night until sunrise. The rooms were neglected and furniture delapidated. Duvet cover had stains on. We moved to the Cape Town City Lodge for the remainder of our stay, which was quiet.

Thank you for choosing to stay at Daddy Long Legs Self-Catering Apartments and for taking the time to share your experience with the rest of the world. ;-) I noticed that you booked for two nights and that you stayed both nights. Both apartments were recently painted and it's looking nice and fresh again. ;-)

All the necessary items you require - blow dryer, iron, washing machine, stove etc. Daily cleaning / washing of dishes. Great location for the party people. Ideal location - my citi bus nearby, less than 10 min to table mountain. A quick spar and tops just up the road. Pubs / Clubs / Restaurants / Take aways all around. Will book again in Cape Town

The rooms are about 4 blocks away from the check-in location. The room was above/next to a night club that continued until 5am. The noise is super loud and sleep was almost impossible. The doors opening onto the busy street below didn't close tightly so all the noise from the cafe / club below, garbage truck traffic noise is not well isolated. Talking or TV in the rooms next door is clearly audible. There is no safe parking available. It is advertised as having Wi-Fi but none was available at this location and no apology was offered. It is not acceptable to have to go 4 blocks away to get Wi-Fi. This is Youth Hostel type accommodation and it is expensive for that.

The apartment itself is fairly nice and well situated, with the expected level of noise every night being that you are literally sleeping on top of a bar.

But main issue I experienced was security. The entrance to the flats is down an alleyway and on the second night of my stay (around 10:30 pm) I was run up on by two guys and had to run to the bar down the road to ask for help from strangers, who escorted me to the Mojito bar below and the bar staff escorted me back to apartment door so I could get in safely. Thankfully I was not harmed and nothing was stolen, but I was thoroughly shaken by the experience and swiftly moved out the next morning to another more secure location. For this reason I would not recommend the apartments, especially if you are a woman staying alone and expecting to come late at night. At the very least, I think Daddy Long legs should consider having a security person outside the door in the late evenings and especially on the weekend when the main street is really busy.

Also, DLL may want to reconsider their smoking in the apartment policy. The bedroom stunk of old cigarette smoke and as a result I ended up sleeping on the fold out couch in the living room.

We have a strict no-smoking policy and I take it that our guests are not following these policies and we only find this out once our guests have checked out but we'll continue to inform our guests about our strict no smoking policy - this policy is on all our websites and guest are informed on check-in.
