SStepping into the Mandela Rhodes Place Hotel & Spa in the energetic heart of Cape Town is like being greeted by an elegant and stylish grandfather – albeit one who boasts impeccable taste in contemporary art.

Sprightly, with a twinkle in his eye and a penchant for boldly patterned silk shirts, he is the sort of man who tears down conformism and the unbearable stiffness of traditional suiting. He is a solid man, with a sensitive allure. He collects curios and still knows how to throw fabulous parties for the younger generation.

His energy is sumptuous, welcoming and charming.

Befitting its namesake, it’s safe to say this iconic hotel is a lot like Nelson Mandela.

Did You Know?
TThe Mandela Rhodes Place development was the first phase of a broader urban renewal scheme.

Found opposite the St. George’s Cathedral, The Mandela Rhodes Place Hotel was born out of the restoration and integration of four historic buildings around a contemporary tower block.

This luxurious retreat brings the relics of the bygone era and the concept of modern city living together to provide discerning guests with premium accommodation that boasts personal service, meticulous attention to detail, intimacy and friendly hospitality.
