Hotels in Cape Town

Hotels in Cape Town offer breathtaking views, both of the city’s many natural wonders and of the city itself. Many Cape Town hotels offer hip and stylish accommodations close to Cape Town’s center and along its shores, while old-luxury style hotels can be found just outside the city – some of these even boast their own wineries. Here are two of T+L’s favorite locations:

One & Only: Located in the center of the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront, with captivating views of Table Mountain, the One & Only is one of the best hotels in Cape Town. The hotels’ restaurants, run by legendary chefs Nobuyuki ‘Nobu’ Matsuhisa and Reuben Riffel, come with African flair and luxurious character, as do the hotel’s 131 rooms and suites. The resort’s daring island design is reflected inside as well as out, and the luxurious spas at One & Only are legendary.

Steenberg: At this Cape Town hotel, you’re just 20 minutes outside the city, yet secluded in the tranquil Constantia Valley, with views over False Bay. Steenberg is located on Cape Town’s oldest farm. The buildings may date back to 1682, but the amenities are state of the art, including a stylish pool bar with loungers, a winery, and an award winning restaurant, Catharina’s.
