About Daddy Long Legs Art Hotel

Staying in the Daddy Long Legs Art Hotel is like being part of an interactive art exhibition. Not only is each room uniquely decorated by an artist, poet, photographer, designer or musician, but, they were afforded complete freedom to interpret the space as they pleased, resulting in a collection of hotel rooms that are an adventurous, humorous (and sometimes ironic) representation of Cape Town’s contemporary cultural landscape.

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. Relax in the beautiful bar and reception area. Boutique Backpacker prices, means you will return again and again…

It all started from humble beginnings, one simple idea - offer travelers, 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 travelers. 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 is not a backpackers. Neither is it a hotel, lodge, inn, motel, apartment block or trailer park. Daddy Long Legs is something entirely different.

Daddy Long Legs is an art exhibition that offers a place to sleep too.

Sweet dreams!
