Nowadays it’s easier than ever before to travel. This is surely in no small part due to the rapid advancement of online technologies and the rise of travel-obsessed social networks and popular online travel and tourism services like booking sites (hello booking.com and expedia) and Airbnb.
And while many of these technologies and services have dramatically shifted the way we travel and engage with the global travel and tourism industries; certain fundamental principles remain.
One such maxim, and one we here at Daddy Long Legs Art Hotel & Self-Catering Apartments consider crucial, is that comfort and convenience are key.
In fact, this is one of the main reasons we opened our days way back when; to provide independent travellers with comfortable and convenient Cape Town city accommodation.
Which is where our self-catering apartments come in. Offering a real home-away-from-home-while-traveling feeling, our 5 self-catering apartments are fully equipped and comprise both 1- and 2-bedroom option, catering for between 2 and 4 travellers.
For any more details and bookings you can contact our reservations team via the following channels:
OR use the WhatsApp chat function to chat to our reception desk directly.
Daddy Long Legs Art Hotel and Self-Catering Apartments are both located on legendary Long Street in the heart of Cape Town's vibrant city centre.
As an independent traveler's hotel in its conveniently central location, Daddy Long Legs is ideally suited to those seeking an authentic and unique Cape Town experience.
Each of the rooms at the hotel has been individually themed and designed by a different local artist, designer and/or creative, giving the establishment its quirky and refreshing appeal.
You'll also find some interesting artworks dotted throughout the hotel, like local graffiti artist Conform's epic under- and over-water scene in our light and airy inner courtyard space.
In addition to the creative vibe you'll encounter at the hotel, you'll also meet our helpful, super friendly staff. Our team is always available to assist with whatever you may need during your stay.
If you're looking for great recommendations on the best things to get up to while in the Mother City, chat to our managers. And if you need something specific organised or arranged, let us know. We'll do whatever we can to assist as and when needed.
And best of all, if you book your stay at either the hotel or self-catering apartments directly with us, and not through a third-party booking site, you'll get 10% off your stay.
All you have to do to find out more and make a booking is click the below link, complete the short online form filling in your details and we'll follow up with you directly.

Since inception, Daddy Long Legs Art Hotel has been all about celebrating Cape Town’s creative spirit. We’ve always been passionate about art and, in particular, the phenomenally talented art and artists that coming out of our beautiful Mother City. That’s why each of our hotel rooms has been uniquely themed and designed by a different local artist or designer.
This past year we had the real privilege of inviting artists to create a few new murals in the hotel. We simply couldn’t be happier with the results and wanted to share all of these amazing artworks with you.
The first mural we had commissioned in 2019 was the courtyard’s vibrant and colourful under- and overwater scene created by local graffiti artist Confrom. The marine mural – complete with friendly fishies and scuba-diving chameleon – has really livened up the courtyard space, providing a welcoming and fun inner-city sanctuary to enjoy a little respite from the bustling streets outside the hotel.
The second mural that was added to hotel was this line-up of quintessentially Capetonian characters to the hotel’s You Are Here room.
This piece was once again conceptualised and crafted by Conform, whose signature sense of humour can be seen throughout (hello African penguin! We love you!)
And lastly, the final mural artwork that was added to the Far From Home room is this wanderlust-inducing landscape masterpiece painted by talented artist Tatiana Hurn.
Hurn envisioned a wanderlust-inducing scene depicting a vast Karoo landscape, featuring vibrant aloes, a breathtaking valley vista and a winding gravel road that invites one and all to embark on a journey of discovery and delight.
