About Daddy Long Legs Art Hotel

Staying in the Daddy Long Legs Hotel is like being part of an interactive art exhibition. Daddy Long Legs redefines the travel experience by offering a space that is as much a creative expression as it is a clean, comfortable place to lay your head.


The thirteen air-conditioned rooms are quite unlike any other accommodation in Cape Town, or even 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.

Activities and Attractions

As an independent traveller’s hotel, Daddy Long Legs will appeal to those seeking an authentic experience of Cape Town and it is ideally situated on Long Street; great for exploring the character and nightlife of the city and its surrounds.

We also proud ourselves in having regular art exhibitions and local music performances providing true Cape Town cultural experiences for our guests. Daddy Long Legs is perfect for the independent traveller who is looking for an experience and it will be also welcome respite for the local businessperson tired of sterile hotel environments.

My boyfriend and I really enjoyed our stay in the "Please Do Not Disturb" room, which has a very clean, crisp design, despite the name! The karaoke feature was great fun too...hope those walls are sound-proof!

Verified reviewvery good

Fromthe outsidie the daddy long legs hotel, would be taken for granted. But the level of service from their staff was exceptional. My husband and I stayed at room 501 , the Levi room< which absalutely loved, i didnt want to leave the room at all. My down side to the whole stay, was the breakfast issue, that i booked for 2, but could only get breakfast for one person. other than than that, i loved daddy long legs so much that i cant wait for my nest visit to cape town again. and no second guessing where i'll be staying again.
