Premier Magazine (South AFrica) - - Contents - Text: Olive John­son Im­ages © Man­dela Rhodes

Whether for busi­ness or plea­sure, trav­ellers to Cape Town who re­ally want to get a feel for what it is like to be im­mersed in the city need look no fur­ther than Man­dela Rhodes Place Ho­tel.

Man­dela Rhodes Place Ho­tel com­prises four his­toric build­ings that have been lov­ingly re­stored and in­te­grated around a con­tem­po­rary tower block. Si­t­u­ated in the heart of the cul­tural quar­ter of Cape Town, this iconic ho­tel with an his­tor­i­cal feel­ing is a stone’s throw away from the busi­ness district as well as an ar­ray of great bars, top-class restaurants, and some of the most fab­u­lous at­trac­tions of Cape Town.

Com­modi­ous apart­ments and suites pro­vide guests the per­fect place to re­lax and un­wind with ex­pan­sive views of the bustling city be­low. Busi­ness and leisure trav­ellers alike can choose be­tween a range of apart­ments from the smaller Stu­dio Apart­ments, which each con­sist of an open plan bed­room with en suite bath­room, kitchen, and lounge, to the more ex­pan­sive Two Bed Plat­inum, boast­ing an en­trance hall, kitchen, din­ing room, lounge, two bed­rooms, two bath­rooms, and pri­vate bal­cony.

For those stay­ing in Cape Town for a long pe­riod – whether for busi­ness or plea­sure – the apart­ments of­fer more than just a lux­u­ri­ous respite and a place to lay one’s head down af­ter a long day. De­spite be­ing sur­rounded by world­class ea­ter­ies, din­ing out ev­ery day and night can be­come tire­some, so hav­ing the op­tion of a large, fully-equipped kitchen and en­ter­tain­ment area is great. Guests can shop at the lo­cal mar­kets and pre­pare meals in the pri­vacy of their own apart­ments, whether it be alone, with fam­ily, or with new friends. The ho­tel also pro­vides daily room ser­vice, laun­dry ser­vice, bathrobes, and tow­els, and each apart­ment has satel­lite TV, and air con­di­tion­ing for Sum­mer evenings.

Another great fea­ture that pro­vides a re­fresh­ing break from the heat of the Sum­mer sea­son is the sparkling rooftop swim­ming pool with panoramic views of the city.

Fa­cil­i­ties that make Man­dela Rhodes Place Ho­tel ideal for cor­po­rate trav­ellers is its state-of-the-art con­fer­ence venues, de­signed to suit all busi­ness needs. The two venues of­fer pack­ages that are tai­lored to the sea­sons and ex­tremely cost ef­fec­tive, mak­ing con­fer­enc­ing af­ford­able and has­sle free. Food and bev­er­age menus are adapt­able and of­fer the flex­i­bil­ity of lunch or din­ner set­tings. The se­cure in­door ho­tel park­ing and be­ing in close prox­im­ity to Par­lia­ment, the Cape Town In­ter­na­tional Con­ven­tion Cen­tre (CTICC), and Supreme Court make this the first choice for many busi­ness trav­ellers.

Though Man­dela Rhodes Place Ho­tel does not pro­vide din­ing as part of the ho­tel, there are a num­ber of renowned, world-class restaurants in close prox­im­ity, of­fer­ing the very finest in culi­nary ex­pe­ri­ences. Guests at the ho­tel can in­dulge in a com­pli­men­tary break­fast from ei­ther Moth­er­land Cof­fee Com­pany, or Dop­pio Zero on the ho­tel premises. For lunch or din­ner, the ho­tel pro­vides an ar­ray of restau­rant rec­om­men­da­tions, rang­ing from laid-back to lux­u­ri­ous, sim­ple to sub­stan­tial. Talk to the friendly staff at the ho­tel to get a per­son­alised sug­ges­tion and let them han­dle book­ings for you so all you have to do is sit back and en­joy. Some pop­u­lar restaurants in the area in­clude: Ad­dis in Cape, Bom­bay Brasserie, Jewel of In­dia, Royale Eatery, and So­ci­eti Bistro.

Where busi­ness meets plea­sure, Man­dela Rhodes Place Ho­tel of­fers an im­mer­sive Cape Town ex­pe­ri­ence.
