Funky, fresh rooms on a hectic street

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on March 30, 2007

DaddyLongLegs was a pretty noisy place. But that's kind of what we expected of a hotel on Cape Town's vibey Long Street with loads of cafes, restaurants, clubs and bars. We never had to go far for a good choice of food if we didn't fancy the hotel's own eatery downstairs (which was pretty good too). The transport was pretty good, easy to get taxis and shuttles and quite a lot of tours leaving from backpackers and other hotels in the street.

The service there was really friendly, low-key but with everything you needed. The rooms and bathrooms were really clean (with showers) and everything was pretty new.

The prices were not bad at all for the centre of the city (excluding breakfast though). A really good location for a couple of days clubbing in central Cape Town after we'd spent a while in the False Bay area (which was also not far from the centre, but if you wanna club then its best not to have to drive I guess).

Unique Quality: No two rooms the same! Every room in this unique hotel is individually decorated by a different artist on a different theme. We stayed in a room with zillions of lurid postcards plastered on the walls and a mirrored ceiling. We were also offered another blinding all-white affair with microphones all around, some dangling from above. Pity we lost our film!

Directions: From the train station go up Strand Street, then go left into Long St. Not far to walk.
