Welcome to Daddy Long Legs Art Hotel on SA-Venues.com, offering accommodation in Cape Town Central, City Bowl.
“It’s about funky, affordable accommodation”, says owner Jody Aufrichtig. He adds that Daddy Long Legs is, “a place where you can meet people, have fun whilst you are at it, and - get an awesome night’s rest. Staying at a Daddy Long Legs gives you the opportunity to absorb the creative spirit of Cape Town without leaving your room, so just lie back and enjoy!”
The thirteen air-conditioned rooms are quite unlike anything else in South Africa. Not only is each room uniquely decorated by an artist, poet, photographer, designer or musician, but, they were afforded complete freedom to interpret the space as they pleased, resulting in a collection of hotel rooms that are an adventurous, humorous (and sometimes ironic) representation of Cape Town’s contemporary cultural landscape.
The communal bar / lounge area is the perfect spot to meet fellow travellers and visiting locals. Relax, order a drink and sit on the balcony to take in the vibrant atmosphere of Cape Town’s creative and eccentric heart.
Breakfast can be ordered at ground level R-Caffe and Daddy Long Legs is in proximity to a plethora of city restaurant choices.
