    We stayed at the Southern Sun Waterfront due to a medical congress at the International Convention Center of Cape Town. Is not too far, it is not behind. Walking during the day will be fine, not recommended during the night.

    The property has a convenient shuttle to the huge V&A complex on the waterfront with hundreds of shops and eateries. There were many choices at the breakfast buffet, and tasty food can be ordered in the restaurant.
