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.

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.
If you’re planning a visit to Cape Town and are looking for a cool and affordable place to stay during your travels come to Daddy Long Legs.
Long recognised as one of the world’s most beautiful city destinations, the Mother City’s abundance of attractions is something we’re exceptionally proud of.
And while there’s certainly no denying that the breath-taking natural beauty surrounding the city is one of its biggest draw cards, there is of course an equally appealing and exciting array of attractions to entice all those spending some time in the Mother City, both locals and foreigners alike!
From fascinating cultural excursions and historical points of interest to the city’s tantalising selection of world-class dining (and drinking) establishments, Cape Town has it all.
In fact (and we may be somewhat biased here), we think that Cape Town is the best city in which to celebrate any occasion. Whether year-ends with the rest of the team or a big bachelor’s (or bachelorette’s) night out on the town, Cape Town is always a guaranteed good time.
If you’ve got an upcoming occasion that demands to be celebrated with a large group of friends or families, and you’d like to combine that with a city stay, come to Daddy long Legs Art Hotel or Self-Catering Apartments. Ideally located along the city centre's iconic Long Street, the hotel and apartments are the perfect spot for large groups celebrating...well whatever. Engagements, year-ends, team-building adventures, you name it!
Blessed with world-famous natural beauty and a rich cultural and historic heritage, the city of Cape Town has long been a popular tourist and travel destination. The beaches are spectacular, the opportunities for epic outdoor adventures are endless and cultural activities abound.
Besides all of this, another major highlight of any trip to Cape Town would have to be the abundance of world-class restaurants, cafes and eateries. In fact, the city of Cape Town boasts so many amazing places to eat it’s sometimes hard to choose where to go.
We’ve therefore narrowed down a list of 5 of our favourite restaurants that are all within a short walking distance from the Daddy Long Legs self-catering apartments, situated at 263 Long Street.
If you love the fragrant and flavoursome cuisine of Ethiopia, or if you’ve never tried Ethiopian food and would like to taste it for yourself, then Lucy (at 281 Long Street) is an absolute must.
Authentic Ethiopian cuisine is prepared and served the traditional way, with an inviting and warm-hearted vibe to match.
Who doesn’t love dim sum? The traditional style of Chinese cuisine offers a tantalising variety of flavours and textures, all packaged in beautiful bite-sized portions.
For perfect-every-time dim sum there’s South China Dim Sum, located at 289 Long Street. The intimate eatery creates a cosy ambience that makes for a perfect spot to grab some night-time eats.
You don’t need to be a vegan to enjoy this 100% plant-based restaurant and café, which you’ll find on Buiten Street, in between Loop and Long. It’s only a couple of minutes’ (metres) walk from the apartments.
Every item off the delicious menu is vegan and prepared by hand and with love. A range of delectable sweet treats (like the koeksisters in the above picture) and regular special menu items always impress.
This burger joint is (literally) a couple of steps from the apartments. We’re actually neighbours!
The burgers here are always a winner the milkshakes never disappoint.
The menu is extensive and caters to pretty much any dietary requirement and personal taste. Loads of vegetarian and vegan options available too.
For a somewhat different dining experience try Galbi, a Korean Barbecue fusion restaurant that’s tucked away inside a centre in between Long and Loop street, behind Laundry on Long and Jo’burg (the bar).
Diners can braai (barbecue) their own meat on a grill at their table with a couple of unique South African elements thrown in. Plus an array of traditional Korean ingredients, foods, condiments and drinks are available.
When enjoying the memorable experience of eating at Galbi, remember this: Everything tastes better when shared!
