Cape Town isn’t short of hotels, and it’s not hard to find a large establishment that offers plenty of facilities and a great location. Likewise, it’s not hard to find a stylish property that has slick design and some head-turning décor. Finding both at the same time, however, isn’t always a cinch.
But that combo of big-hotel ease and boutique-hotel good looks is what I love about African Pride Hotels’ 15 on Orange. Set on the edge of the city centre, and a short walk to the legal district, 15 on Orange dishes up stylish and modern accommodation at surprisingly good value. Plus, there’s a rooftop pool and on-site spa that few guests seem to discover.
But the first thing you need to utter when you make your booking is this: “I want a mountain view”.
Suites on the south side of the hotel offer views of Table Mountain that are so gobsmacking you won’t want to drag yourself out of the lounge chairs facing the floor to ceiling picture windows. At sunset, the views get even better.
Away from the vista, rooms boast king-size beds, mini-bars, plenty of space and sizeable bathrooms with rain-showers and deep tubs. Happily, the in-room wireless Internet access is free and fast.
If your eyes are on your budget rather than the view, there are also standard rooms and ‘Atrium Suites’ that gaze inwards to the lofty hotel lobby area. Here you’ll get a swish modern room for fewer dollars, even if the sundowner views aren’t as good.
But not to worry, the hotel’s Murano Bar is a great spot for a signature cocktail before hitting the town. Although the hotel’s Savour restaurant offers up a surprisingly good menu of international cuisine, the setting is a little soulless. Good for the first night, perhaps, but with so many great restaurants on your doorstep you should rather head out.
And that’s just it… everything is right on your doorstep. Dozens of tourist attractions are a few minutes in the car, and the attractive city centre is a few minutes on foot. There’s little you won’t enjoy about this hotel.
