Daddy Long Legs Hotel in Cape Town

Staying in a Daddy Long Legs Independent Traveller’s Hotel is like sleeping in an art gallery. Each of the thirteen uniquely designed rooms is a playful experience that is miles away from your average hotel stay. Poets, photographers, artists, musicians and designers interpret sterile hotel room décor with humour, imagination, energy and endless creativity.

The communal bar / lounge area is the perfect spot to meet fellow travelers and visiting locals. Relax, order a drink and sit on the balcony to take in the vibrant atmosphere of Long Street; Cape Town’s creative and eccentric heart. And, at the end of the day, each Daddy Long Legs room offers good quality beds, cotton linen and a private shower and toilet. It all started from humble beginnings, one simple idea - offer travellers, spacious, creative, spotless and good value accommodation.

Obtaining all these goals together isn’t easy nor is it the norm in the travel industry. Then again our guests aren’t one to follow the beaten path. They are independent, creative, forward thinking travellers. We accommodate guests that don’t want to stay in another regular hotel room, in another regular city, or go on another regular holiday.

Daddy Long Legs Boutique Hotel offers accommodation with a difference! Housed in a beautiful 4 storey Victorian (1903) building, this will be the place to stay when in Cape Town. Every room is a work of art. Different Cape Town artists, musicians and poets have been commissioned to do the rooms, so every room is wonderful and unique. Relax in the beautiful bar and reception area. Sweet dreams.

Great staff and amazing location. Street parking is plentiful and the neighborhood is really vibrant. Staff is young and hip. They even give you a beer or cider upon arrival. I wish we could had stayed longer, the neighborhood has great shopping.

Love daddy long legs. Service, ambiance, location, rooms. Really knocks the ball out of the park but keeps the moola in my pocket.

Well located for a night or two in Cape Town CBD, this little hotel is within reach of many of the attractions the city has to offer. A little worn around the edges, but affordable and clean with a super friendly hospitality staff to welcome us and recommend local dining and entertainment venues. We shall return.

While the hotel service provides every basic need it is important to note that the hotel is situated in lower Long Street and this area is not the safest. If you are simply looking for a place to lay your head then this is adequate but if you are in search of comfort, look elsewhere. The room was small, the walls are thin, and the bathroom and shower was not very clean. There are only stairs, so it is not disability friendly or fit for the elderly. There is no hotel parking, so one is forced to find parking elsewhere and walk. I will not be returning.

I left a review on tripadvisor, which I am trying to edit(which ended up being more of a review of the way expedia had treated the whole situation), but until then here is the basics of daddylonglegs:The pros:• the staff is super friendly, the manager Mr. Manny (sorry for how I wrote the name, unsure about it) was very friendly and welcoming, he did everything to make us feel safe.• the rooms are exactly what the hotel says they are, unique and different, the place is relatively clean.The downs:• The location, while if you are used to cities similar to Cape Town you may not be bothered by long street, we have found that after 6-7p.m it becomes very unsafe, unless you are in a very large group.• The noise, for some reason there was a lot of noise during the night, I believe it was the wind and the outside that made such a noise.• The lack of isolation, there is barely any isolation in the whole building, if you are a deep sleeper and don't mind the light or noise, should be fine for you.All in all, did we stay there the whole time we had planned...NO, we found that the safety concerns with walking to the conference center and back were to great and we had to leave. Would I recommend it to friends..YES, the staff was super friendly, you get a great service for the amount you paid, and if you don't mind the location you should be good. I would recommend staying there for a week-end.The hotel is at a great price, and if it had been located somewhere else it would have been a beautiful stay.

If you have an artistic mind, you'll love this place. The rooms are clean and well maintained. Each room has a theme and a matching decoration so instead of numbers, they have names. Very welcoming staff. Bar and terrace available with a great view on Cape Town's iconic Long Street.

review by Marius Kouvahe


I'm afraid the photos and write-ups of this establishment are somewhat deceiving in my view. Whilst a very novel concept, the hotel is cramped and the rooms are furnished very basically. The towels and linen that were provided were old and had holes in; the furniture and decorations were dirty (chairs/scatter cushions), and the mattress was old and worn out. One has to park in the street and Im not convinced that its all that secure, and the noise levels from the street carried on during the night. The front desk managers werent knowledgeable about the area as one would have expected and couldnt provide answers to basic inquiries.

review by Llewellyn Jackson, South Africa

"Daddy Long Legs"

The spot to be our stay was a mixture of fascination and appreciation. The artistic styles of the rooms in this Boutique Hotel are quite captivating. The rooms were fresh and clean. Everything worked to the favor of the establishment. Located right on Long Street, we had easy access to all the various restaurants and the awesome nightlife of Cape Town. The service was outstanding. I would definitely refer anyone looking for a getaway with a difference to visit Daddy Long Legs.
