Cape Town

Victoria & Alfred Hotel

Dock Rd.
Cape Town, 8001, South Africa
TEL: 27-21-419-6677

Steeped in the pioneering spirit of colonial Cape Town, this distinguished hotel is set on the city’s thriving harbor (both are named for the queen of England and her son, who inaugurated the waterfront in 1870). About a third of the 94 rooms are loftlike spaces that offer glimpses of the building’s warehouse past (whitewashed brick and exposed beams, stone-and-granite bathrooms), while all accommodations have windows that overlook either the historic waterfront or a nearby piazza. Don’t miss a dockside dinner at the hotel’s open-air restaurant, OYO, for smoked trout, crayfish, and steamed mussels served with a view of Table Mountain. 

Room to Book:

All Harbor Facing rooms boast king-size or twin beds and unparalleled views of the adjacent waterfront.

Insider Tip:

Travelers with kids can arrange for a tour of the nearby Two Oceans Aquarium, home to nearly 3,000 living animals including African penguins and ragged-tooth sharks.
