Cape Cadogan

5 Upper Union St.
Cape Town , South Africa

Once a dark Victorian house, this national monument is now flooded with light, thanks to a renovation by its English and South African owners, who tore down walls and retrofitted period windows and doors. In the 12-room hotel, Italian crystal chandeliers and framed pastel prints complement the cheery whites and golds of the walls, curtains, and bed coverings, and beaded screens add a little flair. Bedrooms have travertine-tiled bathrooms that open onto a private courtyard. A basket of fresh fruit and a decanter of wine greet guests upon arrival; after a night out, port and chocolates await by the fireplace in the lounge.
