If a hotel oozing the essence of creativity sounds right up your alley, then you need to take a turn onto Long Street where Daddy Long Legs Art Hotel flourishes.
It’s really the same thing as being a part of an interactive art exhibition, where each room invites a different atmosphere thanks to the creative themes they emulate. Artist, poet, photographer, designer or musician? It’s like a buffet of bespoke imaginings under the guise of an independent traveller’s hotel.
Even better? It’s designed for those eager to explore what makes Cape Town as special as it is – from its finishing touches right to the central location that places one within the hive of Cape Town’s buzzing culture – Long Street.
As Daddy Long Legs explains it:
It all started from humble beginnings, one simple idea. Offer travellers, spacious, creative, spotless and good value accommodation. Obtaining all these goals together isn’t easy nor is it the norm in the travel industry.
But they understand that their guests aren’t ones to follow the beaten path anyway.
You can take your choice of Self Catering Apartments located at 263 Long Street, of which there are only five unique apartments that proved so popular, the owners’ Jody Aufrichtig and Nicholas Ferguson had to expand the concept to their art hotel situated above The African Music Store, 134 at Long Street.
