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. Most of Cape Town’s luxury hotels—Cape Grace and the One&Only among them—are clustered around the V&A Waterfront district. But you’ll find a broad mix of lodging options across the city, from elegant mansions overlooking the sea (Ellerman House) to a colonial-era grande dame (Belmond Mount Nelson) to a historic city-center villa transformed into a chic bolt-hole (Cape Heritage Hotel).
