From the same team that runs Cape Cadogan, More Quarters proves that good Cape Town hotels aren’t few and far between: this one’s perfect for hip travellers looking for a similar location but with more privacy. Ranged along the old cobbled sidestreets just off hectic Kloof, a small flotilla of semi-detached Victorian houses has been given a cool contemporary make-over. Although some original character has been retained, the new look is 100% chic, with masses of mirror and other gleaming light-reflective surfaces, and absolutely no holding back on those modern-day conveniences, either-plasma TV, surround sound music system, a proper little kitchen, and big, tap-dance routine rainshowers are all designed to make you feel rather happy with your new Cape home. Choose number 10 for the most romantic ambience-the big, sensuous bathroom includes a freestanding central tub. Although there’s a communal check-in venue with an upstairs breakfast room (and views of Table Mountain), these cottages allow you to feel completely self-sufficient; for the rest, it’s a simple walk to Kloof’s endless dining possibilities, galleries, and a parade of able-bodied Capetonians strutting their stuff.
