African Pride 15 On Orange Hotel
Ranked #46 of 112 Hotels in Cape Town Central
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 23 May 2017

This hotel is one of the best hotels that I have stayed in. The bathrooms are huge and beautiful and the room is spacious, clean and you have magnificent views of Table Mountain. Breakfast has options for everyone.

Room Tip: Choose a corner unit so that you can see through the glass panels which are beautiful.

Once again I find myself reviewing another 5 star hotel and once again it has lived up to expectations.

Firstly, I've visited this hotel on a number of occasions but was never really ever keen to stay here. However, in March I flew down to do the two Oceans marathon and wanted something more central Cape Town. So from a locations point of view it's ideally situated nearby many attractions. I spent 4 nights here.

Secondly, it's a beautiful hotel. I can't recall what room option I chose, but it was extremely spacious with its own small lounge. Not too mention the two TV screens and lovely packed mini bar fridge.

Thirdly, the breakfast was beyond compare, lovely setting with great ambience and lighting from outside.

Only negative was probably the vallet/parking fee they charged without disclosing it to me before hand. I, however, do accept responsibility for not having asked. I just assumed that it would have been included. All in all I had a lovely stay and would definitely recommend this hotel. (In actual fact I did recommend it to a friend that stay there a week ago and from what I've heard he really enjoyed his stay as well).

Great value for money. Great hotel.

The hotel is well positioned just next to the Company Gardens, where the dutch grew vegetables for ships on their way to Batavia. This is a good place to have meals as there is a popular cafe under the trees in the park. The hotel seems not to have a chef. Instead it appears to bring in food, ready prepared, of the type that you might find in a second-rate english pub. Some of it, we sent back.


The hotel is American with an atrium, elevators and rest-rooms. Internal bedrooms look out onto the atrium , or in our case the elevator shaft. The atrium is pained in blacks and greys with white sails slung across at about the second floor level. This makes it gloomy, Hardly anyone ate in the open retaiurant, perhaps because iot was so gloomy.

The bath is open to the bedroom and the lavatory has a frosted glass wall and door, possibly because the whole place would be too dark with proper walls.

Service was helpful although the front desk always had to be reminded when we had ordered a taxi or asked for the hire car to be brought up. The rooms were comfortable and quiet as not many people seemed to be staying, and we had a huge discount by booking through a travel agent Iglu tours who also got us comfortable seats on the direct BA jumbo from London.

The roof-top swimming pool and deck-chair area are both minute and seemed to be occupied by staff. The outdoor terrace is also small, marred by a large fire escape and has sunshine only early in the day.

Compared to the nearby Mount Nelson, where we could afford only a cup of tea, it is inexpensive but disappointing.

Room Tip: avoid elevator shaft view

I had the opportunity to spend 3 days in the hotel. I arrived a bit earlier in the hotel but I had a room almost on the fly. The reception desk was very friendly ( even if not 100% efficient). The room was really great..with a superb bathroom…clean, quiet…it was a superior room with 80 square meters…real value for money. The restaurant is really great..great food and fantastic service… great wine…the place is very modern… design kind of place. The hotel is located on top of long street, you need to take a taxi to go to Waterfront… it costs less than 7 euros…in the evening, it's a bit outside the trendy spots but again, a short taxi ride solves the issues. There is an outdoor pool with a view on table mountain. A parking lot should you come by ( or rent a) car. I would recommend that hotel for its great service , its modern design, its restaurant and its price.

Room Tip: a superior room….

I've stayed at African Pride 15 on Orange for a combined leisure/business trip end March 2017. I love love love my room. The setting is super nice, and quite romantic actually (just that I stayed alone so couldn't use 100% of the facilities, but loved it).
It's quite center of Cape Town, next to the Company Garden where it's nice relaxing to walk around.
Staff is very polite, helpful and always with big smile. Breakfast is excellent. Finger foods are great.
All in all, I really enjoyed the stay.
