Description

Situated in the heart of the Cape Town City center, Long Street is one of the oldest streets in Cape Town dating back to arrival of the first settlers in Cape Town. It can be said of Long Street that she both runs through the heart of Cape Town and through the hearts of all who frequent her cafes and clubs, buy her books and beads, her antiques and African art.

Staying in the Daddy Long Legs Art Hotel is like being part of an interactive art exhibition. Each of the thirteen uniquely designed rooms is a playful experience that is miles away from your average hotel stay.

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.

Daddy Long Legs Self Catering Apartments has 5, stylish, self-catering, fully furnished apartments. Spacious and recently refurbished these funky apartments have retained their old world feel with Oregon wooden floors, exposed brick and ceiling beams and decorated with a hint of contemporary vibrant Africanism.

Each apartment sleeps 2-4 people and has an open plan kitchen dining area and lounge. The bathroom has a shower. The front apartments have French doors, which open up onto Long Street the perfect place to sit on a warm evening and watch the street transform.

Please note that all check-ins and collection of keys needs to happen at the Art Hotel, situated at number 134 Long Street.

  worthwhile fun
(South Africa)   Ms Del Grande 12 March 2012
My family sons of 18 and 11) and I needed to spend a weekend together in Cape Town and Daddy Longs apartments offered an exciting and comfortable family sized space. We could enjoy each others company in the space of a flat and we could experience the heart of Cape Town Long Street lifestyle. Thanks for a great experience!

(United States)   Mr Bronk 17 March 2008
This is a very funky hip hotel. The staff was friendly and helpful and functioned like skilled concierges. The bar reception area was great with classic movies projected on the wall. The welcoming drink was spot on. We had the Karaoke room featured on the website. It was fun but I would have preferred one of the more fashionable rooms. Without an elevator the third story rooms are a bit of a struggle with luggage, but the great air-conditioning helped to cool the climb.
