Green Room Gardens Self Catering Apartment
It is available for medium term lets from a couple of weeks to a couple of months, and can accommodate either a single person or a couple.
The open-plan apartment consists of kitchen, breakfast and living room areas with flat-screen TV, entertainment centre with DVD/CD and iPod docking station, bedroom area with double bed and dresser, walk-in closet area, separate bathroom with shower, and has 24-hour manned security.
Probably the best thing about the apartment (other than the view) is its location. Three elevators give quick access to all of the amenities of the Gardens Centre, including restaurants, high-end shops, supermarkets, internet cafe, laundry, banks, travel agents, and more. There is also a doctor's office, dentist and a beauty salon on the Mezzanine floor of the apartment tower. There are a couple of laundry services in the vicinity, with the closest being Speediwash, located across the East entrance of the parking garage on Buitenkant Street.
The apartment tower is a Wi-Fi hotspot, with routers on every floor meaning the Green Room apartment has great reception. Internet access can be acquired from the reception desk at the entrance to the tower block. Please see below for rates.
Taxis are available from right outside the centre's doors, though the building is within walking distance of Cape Town's many museums, Company Gardens, the famous Kloof and Long Streets, etc.
The MyCiti rapid bus network provides easy, affordable transport to the V&A; Waterfront, Green Point Stadium, Cape Town train station, Cape Town Intl Airport, etc. from the Gardens station, located right opposite the building.
Secure indoor or rooftop parking is available should you need it and can be rented from the Omnipark office in the parking garage at either a monthly or a daily rate. The shopping centre and entrance to the apartment tower can be accessed from the parking garage via lifts. Please see below for parking tariffs.
So, what else is included in the rent?
- Water and electricity are provided for free (but please use these sparingly as both are scarce resources in our country!).
