African Pride 15 On Orange Hotel
Ranked #46 of 112 Hotels in Cape Town Central
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 19 September 2015

On this first visit ever to Cape Town and South Africa, we did a lot of research on where we might stay, to have easy access to the important sights at a clean, safe place of international business standard -- at a reasonable value. As Marriott Gold loyalty club members from the States, we were also looking at the many Protea brand hotels in Cape Town. From what we could see from TA reviews, it seemed that we should stay in the Central Business District or the Waterfront area -- and we are so glad that we ended up at 15 on Orange! We requested a king-sized deluxe room with a Table Mountain view on a high floor; ended up with everything we requested except on the 3rd floor, and that turned out to be just fine -- a great room with a fabulous view.
The hotel physical design and amenities are highest standard, as others have said. The bedroom was huge with a seating area and coffee/tea/bar area. The bathroom is bigger than many hotel rooms elsewhere, nicely designed and separation of space, with double sinks, separate soaking tub and glassed in areas for large shower, wc, and even a sitting area -- all with full-on views of Table Mountain!
Sometimes when traveling at international standard chain hotels, one can feel like the hotel can be anywhere, but with Table Mountain right there, no question that this was Cape Town, RSA.
There are many excellent features about this hotel, but the very best thing is its location. Easy walking to everywhere a visitor would like to explore -- major sites such as Bo Kaap, Long Street, Green Market, Company Gardens, museums etc. Lots of great restaurants and night spots within an easy walk in a well-lit and busy, safe-feeling area. A stop for the Hop-On Hop-Off bus (Yellow line) is right outside the hotel driveway entrance and cabs are always around. The location was absolutely perfect for sightseeing.
Stayed five nights, and of course there were minor issues -- such as inconsistent replacement of towels and/or amenities on different days, disorganized front desk that was hard to reach at times, construction going on next door (nothing the hotel can do about that, but don't get a room on that side unless you want all the construction workers watching you). The internet mostly worked great, with occasional slowness. But these were all minor. We would definitely stay here again and recommend it to our friends.

Room Tip: It's worth it to pay extra for the view.

We were on a retreat with 120 other people. Great buffet on the Friday night and Saturday lunch.Excellent breakfast too! There was so much to eat that I put on a kilogram! Deserts out of this world. Staff were very friendly and they made you feel special. Rooms were very spacious with great baths and showers. The orange lit basins were unique at night--hence I assume "15 on Orange". Cape Town museum and planetarium is right next door together with the company gardens and parliament nearby. Long Street with all its cafes/ restuarants are nearby and so is the Long Street Warmbaths

Sunday morning talks with our children are important and the best place to make an adolescent to feel important is in the modern environment of 15 on Orange.

Breakfast is super. Staff is attentive and they keep the hot chocolate and Cappuccinos rolling amidst the wonderful eats. Despite the tight guest parking garage, we keep returning!

I stay in CPT on a regular basis for business, and I must say the 15 on Orange was a welcome change on my most recent visit. Lovely hotel, very modern with spacious rooms. Gym facilities were good, new modern equipment, so no complaints.

I had dinner the night I arrived and breakfast the following morning at the restaurant. Both were excellent, Fish and chips for dinner was a real treat, all went down well with some Shiraz.

I can definitely recommend this hotel, I will stay here again on my next visit to CPT.
