Once in Cape Town is located on Kloof Street, a vibrant entertainment precinct surrounded by lots of nice restaurants, sites and activities. Down the street, you’ll find the popular Long street, famous for its bars and clubs. There you can find a bar for every taste, perfect to party all night long, but far enough from the noise of the city. Not in the mood to venture out? Fear not! Our relaxing back area with self-catering kitchen, outdoor fire-pit and meditation garden gives you space to work and chill. We have 3 in-house restaurants – the burger joint, Hudsons; a vinyl music only spot which has the best pizza and coffee, Today & Tomorrow and cafe deli: Yours Truly – our cafe where free breakfast is served. The cafe transforms into our hip bar for day-time merriment, and is open until 11pm. Local Captonians love this place – perfect to meet local friends and known as a “Cape Town institution”.
Reception and concierge are open 24 hours – book a surf lesson, a wine tasting trip, a visit to penguins, skydiving, shark cage diving and community based experiences! Our staff love to travel and are city ambassadors who will gladly answer all your questions and offer travel tips and advice. We invite you to join daily free activities like hiking Lions Head or watching the sunset at Signal Hill and make your stay unforgettable and meet new friends!
