If you love staying in the city, then a night or two at the newly revamped The Capital 15 On Orange is a must. The hotel recently reopened its doors, and Grant and I were fortunate to spend a night there!
The Capital 15 On Orange
In the heart of Cape Town CBD, this spectacular urban oasis is ideally located for exploring the Mother City. Located within Cape Town’s richly historic Company’s Garden, the hotel boasts breathtaking views of Table Mountain and Lion’s Head. Add to that you are a short stroll from an array of trendy cafes, stunning restaurants and cocktail bars, and the V&A Waterfront is a mere 3km away.
From the reception area to the guest rooms, you cannot help but be wowed by the distinctive modern architecture, contemporary decor and understated luxury.
A hotel of this stature and location simply has to offer so much more than “state of the art” accommodation – it needs to offer a complete hospitality and entertainment experience. That’s why our rejuvenation of this exceptional property included a focus on upgrading the dining and entertainment offerings, as well as making a significant investment in its conferencing and banqueting options.Marc Wachsberger, managing director of The Capital Hotels and Apartments
At The Capital 15 On Orange, guests can choose from 129 well-appointed, beautifully decorated rooms, suites, apartments and signature pods.
