Cape Town Hotels


Protea Fire & Ice


At a Glance


  • location at the edge of the city means good dining and other activities available on foot
  • brilliant views of Table Mountain especially from rooms above the fifth floor


  • some will be irritated by the zany decoration, like public toilets with full-size Adam and Eve images with a hand-towel instead of fig leaf

Protea Fire & Ice Review

Initially built as an Extreme Hotel—interior elements like elevators dressed like a shark cage under water or a Table Mountain cable car mid-journey, and a "climbing wall" still exist—the hotel is more user-friendly now for the average visitor (or anyone over 21) while still remaining edgy. Rooms are very small but otherwise you are getting four- and even five-star facilities for three-star rates. Everything you'll want in a room is here including Bose iPod docking stations. Thoughtful additions include free local newspapers in the public areas and free popcorn at the bar.
