The age of consumerist accommodation has dawned in the form of Urban Chic – an unashamed salute to the new world. Cape Town's brazen byword in boutique hotel luxury should appeals to anyone from dressed-down business travellers who like to experience the heart and soul of a city, scruffy Mac-toting hipsters, and bed-headed production company whizzkids. Senior citizens need not apply. Step off the mania of Long Street - with its hip-hop street cafés, rollerblading Rastas, fried-chicken stalls and boutique shops – and into a dramatic realm of stylised glass, marble and brushed steel. And some fine Italian accessories to boot.
With just 20 rooms, individual attention to detail and to your needs is assured. En suite bathrooms – marble – open into the bedrooms, each with its own original artwork as focal point to the interior while the sight of Table Mountain, Lion's Head, Signal Hill and the buzzing city below are the external focal points. The restaurant is a gallery; the bar is a sophisticated cocktail and cigar lounge.
