Cape Heritage Hotel

90 Bree St., Cape Town, Western Cape, 8001, South Africa

Built as a private home in 1771, this centrally located boutique hotel has teak-beamed ceilings, foot-wide yellow-wood floorboards, and numerous other details that recall its gracious past. The spacious rooms are individually decorated, many melding the best of South Africa's dynamic contemporary art scene with colonial elegance. Some have four-poster beds, others exposed brickwork, but each has its own special charm. Rooms overlooking the pleasant courtyard—complete with tables sheltered by what's claimed to be the oldest grapevine in South Africa—may be a little noisy, but the revelry stops at midnight. Parking is across the street in a section of a public lot with good security, and friendly staff make sure everything runs smoothly.
