June 25, 2024

Situated in the heart of Cape Town, this exquisite heritage building comprises two properties, masterfully designed by the Design Hotels collection and renovated to create a single, modern hotel.

The aesthetic is a fusion of industrial tones, raw concrete, and steelwork with Victorian design elements.

The hotel boasts 32 luxurious rooms, ranging from studios to two-bedroom suites, each individually decorated so no two rooms are the same, as every room narrates its unique story. The eclectic furnishings, treasures handpicked by local artists, and wall art by David Brits all contribute to the hotel’s enchanting ambiance.

Hotel Amenities:

  • The Lobby: A meeting place for like-minds, where you can sip a drink, converse, or get lost in a good book.
  • Gigi Rooftop: Bar and rooftop pool with stunning views serving casual cuisine all sustainably and ethically sourced.
  • The White Room: A multi-functional private event space combines Art Deco and Edwardian architecture with an industrial edge. It’s a design lover’s dream. It can accommodate up to 120 guests for canapes and cocktails, 25 for a board meeting, or 60 for a sumptuous dinner.
  • Art Gallery: Explore curated collections.
  • Great Music and Art: A space for the curious and adventurous.

Delve into Cape Town’s vibrant design landscape. The hotel serves as an ideal base for discovering the city and experiencing the rich cultural diversity of South Africa.
