Description and Status:
Rooms and allocations:
Each of the four Room floors have 5 rooms per floor. As the original plan with the previous owner was to convert the building into apartments, none of the rooms are identical. Yet each room has the same average size, and same amenities.
Superior rooms, total 7. These rooms have all front facing views of the city, with surrounding windows. 6 of these rooms have enough floor space to accommodate additional beds, to convert rooms into Family rooms. At present, there is only two additional beds, that can be moved into these rooms on request.
The Middle and back sections of the Hotel has the Luxury and standard rooms.
The difference between these and the Superior rooms is the amount of windows per room, the position of the rooms in relation to view and in the case of the 3 Standard rooms, smaller floor area.

A Brief History:
The Building was built in 1930, and forms part of the rich Art Deco era that permeates the Central Business District of Cape Town. As it is situated within an Officially recognised Heritage Zone, the building carries protection under the 2010 South African Heritage Act, and as such, had to comply with all building regulations as prescribed by the Western Cape Heritage Department.
The First owner of the property was a Cape Town newspaper company in 1930, and it has since changed hands on numerous occasions, notably belonging to the Now Defunct South African National Party from 1982 to 1995.
On purchase in 2018, the building went through extensive renovations and remodelling, of which work was completed at the end of November 2018.
It began trading as a Hotel on 11 December 2018.
