I would recommend this great boutique arts hotel, it was clean, quiet and great value for money with the current exchange rate. it is walking distance to the conference centre 15 minutes and close to all the restaurants of Long Street and Bree.

The unique style of the hotel sets it apart from the typical Copy and Paste hotel rooms found elsewhere. The staff were very friendly and made our visit even better. The hotel is conveniently situated in the central part of Cape Town City. The only negative point was the lack of parking.

Stayed in ´emergency room´, although creativeness is nornally a good thing this was a bit too wacko! Rooms should also be nice and comfy to stay in, this was not...Receptionists welcoming, and met some nice fellow guests there.

Dear 533tores Thank you for your feedback - Emergency Room is one of our popular rooms and I would suggest to find your favorite room at our art hotel - all our rooms have different themes and each one was design by a different artist. We wish you all the best for the future. The Daddy Long Legs Team :-) More

Air-conditioned room did not work. It only worked after the 3rd room. No TV in the rooms in 2016! No breakfast. The room rate was very high for a room without amenities The personal was friendly and helpful To book accommodation was easy and quick.

Awesome place to stay. We stayed in January 2016 and had the Sailor Jerry Room this time. It was supercool, though could have had a bit more lighting and a shame the neon sign was out of order. Our previous stay in mid 2008 we had a room with Karaoke and astroturf carpet (our least favourite room so far because... More

From the friendliness of the staff, to the complimentary drink on arrival, to the wackiness of my room's theme, I can find no fault in this little gem of a hotel. Even though the rooms are small, they make up by having charm and being very comfortable.

Inconvenient and overpriced in the name of "art". On arrival we had to cary our luggage up 4 flights of very narrow steep stairs without any help from staff, only to find a tiny boxed-in room with no view and nothing creative or arty to it. Just wallpaper on the walls, mirrors on the ceiling, a glass toilet door offering... More
