Local Knowledge & Cool Perks
If you don't mind walking and taking the train to save some money, you can use the train to your advantage – catching the train to a station closer to your destination and then catching a cab from the station instead of a cab directly from the hotel should save you money. Walking to the station and catching the train is also time consuming in itself, and as we know time is money. So the choice is yours.
If you're looking for the bars/night clubs that will be a better call on specific nights or want a specific theme or genre of music, ask the people in the service industry – waiters and bar staff generally know the night life scene or will be able to offer some suggestions.
For reservations at The Bungalow and The Alphen's 5 Rooms, get hold of Clyde at The Bungalow, or Lydia at 5 Rooms. These two locations are both part of The Kove Collection, which offers a unique and exciting experience at any one of their restaurants. If you are going to stick to this guide, try spending some time making reservations for the week ahead.
An early morning hike up Lions head before starting the day's activities is always a great idea. Starting at 6:30, it shouldn't take longer than 1.5 / 2 hours, depending on the time spent on top.
