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.
It’s no secret that visitors to Cape Town are blessed with stunning views virtually everywhere they go. From the imposing peaks of the Table Mountain National Park to the glittering waters of the city’s world-class beaches, the Mother City’s vistas are as beautiful as they are varied.
And when it comes to taking in the city’s sights, particularly its most famous attraction Table Mountain, where better to enjoy and appreciate the view than on a sunny day on a rooftop bar, refreshing drink in hand.
And while the city boasts more than a few beautiful rooftop watering holes to choose, the following 3 are some of our faves to gaze at the city’s beloved mountain icon.
And best of all they’re all within a relatively short distance from Daddy Long Legs Art Hotel & Self-Catering Apartments, meaning it’s super convenient to experience all 3 of these when staying at either our hotel or self-catering apartments, ideally located in the city centre along Long Street.
Situated along a trendy corner of Kloof Nek road, this rooftop bar which sits above the boutique Cloud 9 Hotel doesn’t just present its guests with arguably the best up-close-and-personal view of Table Mountain, it also features a turquoise splash pool that is just so instagrammable.
SKY BAR, ABOVE PIANO BAR
The Sky Bar above Piano Bar in the charming De Waterkant quarter is another bar with a pool and view. Come here for relaxing sunset vibes, gorgeous mountain views and, when the weather demands, a welcome splash in the pool.
Eclectic décor and a cool hipster vibe characterise Dark Horse, an eatery and watering hole located on upper Kloof Road at the base of Table Mountain. Come here during the day for cold beers, and epic views. And at night, the socialising and people-watching are on point.

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.

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!
