Mandela Rhodes Place Review

Occupying an entire city block, this mixed-use complex of apartments, offices, a winery, retail space, and a hotel spearheaded the inner-city's rejuvenation. The hotel is comprised of five buildings, the Tower being the most contemporary and spacious with two-bedroom apartments. The apartments in the Fairbairn have an art-deco bent; those in the Kendall benefit from wood flooring and inlaid stone work while the Winery overlooks the only inner-city winery. This location is excellent for exploring the city and environs on foot during the day, but it can feel daunting to freely walk about at night. Luckily, there are good restaurants on-site. Synergy is operated by the hotel and serves elegant Mediterranean cuisine like saddle of lamb with butternut squash, capers, and mint. Doppio Zero is an Italian family-dining franchise on the lower level, and, directly across the street, Haiku serves superb Pan Asian, and Bukhara equally good North Indian cuisine. For views of Table Mountain and the Harbor, book as high in the Tower as possible. Rooms in the Winery tend to be noisier, as the reception area is directly beneath.
