“Interesting, but our room was boring”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

Located on Long St, the party st, it's a good location. We woke up in the AM and jogged the city (which was a GREAT way to sight see) and this was a great locale for that.
Got there late, met the desk person, had our welcome wine and complementary Mentos (they are sponsored by Mentos so you get as many as you want - which was great b/c they're good).
Unfortunately the wi-fi was out and didn't get fixed by the time we left, so they get points off for that. Also, our room was sorta boring - a bunch of maps with Capetown demarcated. Sorta fun, but not when compared to the other rooms.
The front desk girl was crazy pretty, smart, and nice - so I would give 5 stars for that, but I'm showing restraint.

Hi There

Thanks so much for sharing your time with us. Its lovely to hear back from our guests as this helps us to grow and become better at what we do. I would like to take this opportunity to apologize about the wifi not working while you were here. We do proud ourselves on the fact that we offer FREE wifi and i would gladly like to report that we have resolved the issue with regards to the downtime.

I would recommend checking out one of our other rooms next time you stay with us as all our rooms have been designed differently offering guests a slightly different experience every time they stay with us.

All the best and we look forward to welcoming you back again.

Kind Regards

This place really is the ultimate boutique hotel - every room is totally different and truly amazing! We were shown around a few rooms - must be seen! It's in a lively part of town and we totally enjoyed the trip :)

What an amazing stay! I must admit that I have been looking forward to gracing the absolutely stunning rooms of this place for quite some time, and therefore might be slightly prejudice in reviewing the place. One thing I can honestly say however is that it was more than I expected, maybe because I shared it with a special someone, or maybe because your place is all that! Constantly having to battle the urge to ask whether I may view the rest of the rooms the hotel has to offer, I undertook to return and stay in every room available, soon! Friendly staff, cold beers, strong coffee and the 'Long Street-vibe' makes this place my Cape Town destination for next couple of years. Well done to whomever is in charge here. You know what you are doing!!!

Room Tip: I staid in the 'do not disturb'-room

They say a break is as good as a holiday and my one night stay at this quaint arty hotel was just what we needed. We were made to feel right at home by Este - she welcomed us with a big smile and immediately offered us a welcome drink. We stayed in the Open Room and were treated to a comfy bed surrounded by the most fantastic photography of sunrises and sunsets. The hotel was a perfect base to explore the many restaurants and nightlife that Long Street offers- it made me feel like a teenager again. Thank you to Este and the fantastic staff of Daddy Long Legs- we had a fantastic stay and can't wait to get back to your place to experience another night- we still have another 12 rooms to experience. Thank you Janine and Mourchelay

Excellent prices, amazing rooms, excellent service, great location, nothing to dislike!
We took three rooms and kept switching to experience different rooms, and they were amazing all three of them. The prices are very fair, and I would definitely stay there again to experience a different room!

Room Tip: Each room has a different theme and story, go on their website and pick your favorite room upon book...

Arrived for a long weekend in Cape Town and had read about this place on the Internet although the article was from a couple of years ago. The staff were very welcoming and friendly. On Long St so in the heart of the city bowl and close to Bo Kaap, the city gardens, the mall, shops, a number of pubs and nice restaurants. Also easy walking distance to V&A Waterfront. The rooms are all decked out uniquely, I stayed in the Mak1one room which features a large installation descending from the roof above the bed and graffiti art and orange warning light in the bathroom...whatever that is for ;-) completely recommend this for first time visitors and return visitors to Cape Town. I'll be back there soon...hopefully to check out another couple of their amazing rooms.

Room Tip: Check them out on the Internet - if you like a room design ask for it.

Hi Jono

Thanks for sharing your lovely experience at Daddy Long Legs. We strive to be as welcoming and friendly as possible to ensure all our guests have a splendid and most memorable stay with us.

Just for interest sake, the orange warning light in the bathroom is a reminder of the negative aspect of authority over graffiti and the misunderstandings around it.

If you loved the "BeingMakOne" room we would suggest checking out our brand new room "Sailor Jerry" which was launched this month, upon your next visit with us.

All the best and we look forward to welcoming you back.
