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...

Quite disappointed right from the reception as when you walk in, the staff are disinterested, place looks unclean and never once engaged to see how the stay was. The rooms are basic, bathrooms have loads of grout on the tiles and the bed linen and towels look almost yellow from usage and washing - not pleasant. The noise from Long... More

I stayed here for 3 nights in the "Emergency Room". I enjoyed the theme and it always put a smile on my face when I entered. As others have stated, the rooms are pretty bare, no fridge or tv, etc, but I found my room to be comfortable enough for the price paid (although I did book during a promotion... More

what a dissapointment, the reception was cold and unwelcoming, the rooms were unexpectedly small and did not feel very clean. this is a boutique hotel that is past its prime and in desperate need of a revamp. i would not recommend it.

Very average. The rooms are NO WHERE near as nice as they look in the photos. It wasn't that clean in the bathroom, our towels were threadbare in places the bed wasn't great and the sheets felt like they were made from paper. However, saying this it was in a good location. Very easy to get around on Long Street,... More

First and foremost, thanks to Jason for all of your help in our bookings and then upon arrival, as well as the staff for assisting fu our stay. While I was expecting something completely different from the self-catering rooms the stay ended up being brilliant. The décor (in the hotel and apartments) exceeds photos and is must experience yourself situation.... More

The Daddy Long Legs Hotel in Cape Town is certainly different with every room based on a different theme. Whilst the decor of the rooms themselves are great they are extremely sparse. The is no bar fridge, no kettle nor any tea or coffee. If you require you must walk down a flight of stairs to the service station. It... More

Greetings Clive Thanks for sharing your stay with us. We do indeed not have self catering rooms at our Hotel (no kettle or fridges in the room) but we do however have 2 refreshment areas, one at reception and one on our 2nd floor, for guests to enjoy free tea and coffee. As our building is a natural heritage site... More

My friend and I spent one great night in Cape Town and stayed at daddy long legs we stated because of location and price and intrigue. It was a good choice and if I'm back in Cape Town I'd stay again. Quiet clean and cozy. There was great cd's and sound system in our room. The decor was interesting ...... More

I stayed for 4 nights at the Daddy Long Legs art hotel in January 2014. I was shown 3 available rooms and allowed to choose my preference. From the check in process, through daily activity ideas, bookings, calling for taxi's etc the staff were all outstanding. They were friendly and helpful answering questions, sharing ideas, making the bookings and asking/listening... More

I've stayed at this hotel twice in Cape Town. It is far better value for the same funky, art experience as its overpriced "luxury" sister hotel The Grand Daddy also on Long street. The people at this place are friendly and generous. The rooms are interesting and about the same price as other double rooms with en suite bathrooms on... More
