Cape Town

Grand Daddy Hotel


38 Long St.,
Cape Town,

South Africa,

Blending the work of contemporary local designers, the Grand Daddy Hotel is best known for its rooftop trailer park: seven vintage Airstream trailers, each designed with a different theme—for instance, the “Ballad of John and Yoko” includes a host of musical instruments, while “Goldilocks and the Three Bears” has a bear suit, and old-fashioned rocking chair, and three different-sized bowls. The 26 standard guest rooms are more classic, although they do incorporate South African motifs like aloe-print headboards. The hotel also has a Mediterranean restaurant, a rooftop cinema, and two cocktail bars (including one on the roof).
