Got off to a bad start with this place and it just kept getting worse. I have no idea how it can possibly have won the 'Trip Advisor' prize. After booking two rooms online I called to ask about parking, and was told that they didn't have any rooms for us. It was booked through 'Booking.com' so I was told... More

Where to start? The staff is completely unkind, they just watched us while we were carrying our huge baggage up the stairs, without any help (and we were two little girls). In addition to this, our room was without any window, the towels and linens were dirty and looked old. The rooms are very noisy, you can hear the steps... More

I had no idea where we were staying when my partner booked our accommodation and was pleasantly surprised by this artistic space. The art in the reception area had my attention from the moment we arrived and we got a sneak peak at three of the available rooms to make our choice. Freshly Ground was our selection for the night...

With two kids, 3 & 5 years old, our choice was almost perfect for us. I think most of the parents would complain about the laud music from downstairs bar, yet the kids were getting deadly tired during the day to hear it. :) And while they were sleeping, we set in our balcony as a couple, enjoying African vine...

I visited again - this time know what not to expect (as per my previous review). Going there with this in mind was a much better experience. We stayed in the emergency room which probably is one of the better options to stay in. Surrounded by mirrors and red walls; on the street. So you can opt to open the... More

My partner and I stayed at the daddy long legs apartments for 4 day. The apartment is lovely, all it was advertised to be . . . Except that their website fails to mention the noise! The apartment is above bars (surrounded by bars is more accurate) and there is loud, loud music every day of the week- including Sunday!... More

We liked the common areas, they are cosy and u get free coffee. Unfortunately, our room was not that cosy. Value for money was ok, however quite expensive for backpackers. Daddy long legs is located centrally in long street, which makes it easy to visit locations by foot.

The hotel is well restored and is funky. Super cool elevator. However the room we got had windows facing some weird tiny square shaft in the building, so all the noise from the rooftop bar that was hosting a party went straight down. Into our room. The food in the restaurant was just meh. The food generally even in the... More

This is a very unique and interesting property...it is definitely a boutique art hotel. They are not going for modern..they are going for artsy... The rooms a large and can accommodate large groups of people...it has a kitchen with a large fridge to store food and beer. One thing to keep in mind is that it is located on Long... More

Jason R, General Manager at Daddy Long Legs Boutique Hotel, responded to this review

Greetings Thank you for sharing your stay. We are glad you enjoyed your time with us. I think however there seems to be a little bit of confusion between our properties as what you have described, is our Self Catering Apartments, which is very different to our Boutique/Art Hotel. The Self Catering apartments are indeed located further up towards the... More

The design is great, local and modern, but maybe the rooms need some renovation. Good location, good price, easy to walk to the major spots in Cape Town. Staff was very kind. But the Wi-fi barely worked...
