This grand old building has three giant floors of cozy rooms and woodwork restored to its original splendour, with a fresh and majestic feel of the interior.
From the two enormous balconies on the first and second floors, you can spy on the street life, look out over the skyline onto the slopes of Signal Hill or see the ocean above the palm trees on the other side.
From late afternoon you can meet fellow travelers in our spacious buzzing bar for a drink or a game of pool or foosball. Just outside is Cape Town's hub of activity that is Long Street.
Take your pick of the bars, clubs and restaurants that line the pavement from the doorstep and step into the best of the city's nightlife.
