Art Hotel

Offer travellers, spacious, creative, spotless and good value accommodation. Staying in the Daddy Long Legs Independent Travellers Hotel is like being part of an interactive art exhibition.

The thirteen-room boutique backpacker is 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 Towns contemporary cultural landscape.

All the beds are hotel quality and are lovingly dressed in clean percale linen. Each room has its own shower and toilet and the communal space boasts a relaxed bar, balcony and frequent entertainment.

No one will go hungry, with street level R-Caffe offering breakfasts and lunches and a plethora of dining options are within walking distance.

As an independent travellers hotel, Daddy Long Legs will appeal to those seeking an authentic experience of Cape Town. It is a place to meet others and it is ideally situated for exploring the character and nightlife of the city and its surrounds.

In much the same way, Daddy Long Legs will be a welcome respite for the local businessperson tired of sterile hotel environments.

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 Long Street; Cape Towns creative and eccentric heart.
