“Funky hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 November 2011

15 on Orange is a funky mod hotel, with huge rooms, great food, and a great location at the top of Long street.

What I like:
- Large rooms with big lounge area, desk etc. 2 flat screen TV's so can watch from bed or from the couch in the lounge area.
- Spacious bathroom with deep bath, fantastic shower.
- Super food, breakfast and room service really nice.
- View very dependant on which room you get, ask for one with a view of table mountain!
- Complimentary massage from the spa was a nice touch!
- less than 100m from top of Long Street, so easy to take a walk and find a funky Cape Town bar to have a drink or get a bite to eat.

What I didnt like:
- If you get the wrong room you dont have a view, but given its location thats understandable.
- They charge R65 a day for parking, pretty meaningless in the scheme of things so why even bother?
- Hotel is not really for business - the business centre doesnt exist save for a few computers and a tired printer/fax.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of table mountain!

My experience at 15 on Orange has only been of excellent service and delicious food. Although I haven't stayed for the night, I have been to the restaurant, Saviour, many times and have always had a fantastic experience.

On one occasion, having booked their entertainment room to watch a World Cup Rugby match, I was told that there had been a mix-up and that the room had been double booked. Without hesitation, the manager offered an executive suite in which to watch the game. Our food and beverages were brought up to the room and we watched in style. Quite outstanding.

Hats off to the team at 15.

I stayed at 15 on Orange as part of a World Lion "travel in style" tour. The hotel was clean, stylish and in a great location. The breakfast buffet was a highlight to our morning adventure and kept us going throughout the day. The staff was helpful and kind.

WOW! What an experience. This hotels staff are well trained and efficient without being in your face. The rooms are amazing, complete with bedding from Granny Goose! The breakfast is the ultimate treat - oysters and salmon on the buffet as well as figs and melon. I had eggs benedict - best hollandaise ever. We were there for an event and the whole Penthouse party experience was incredibly swish and well organised. Well stocked minibar, 2 TV with movies to choose from, an ipod docking station, newspapers delivered in the morning.
If you want to use the Spa be sure to book well in advance , my partner and I were well disappointed when we were told at 10am on Sunday that they only had space for us at 5pm and then couldnt do a couples massage.
Well done African Pride I really hope you are successful with this hotel, it is absolutely fabulous from start to finish.

Room Tip: We stayed on the 5th floor facing Table Mountain - brilliant views!

This a groovy, happening place with fun staff and beautiful people watching. Rooms are enormous and mod and very comfortable. Only down-side is not great views. Location of the hotel is fine. Out of the mainstream and doesn't make you feel like you are sleeping in a shopping mall. Next to the South African Museum and a bus stop for the jump-on/jump-off sightseeing bus. We highly recommend the hotel. FOOD WAS AMAZING! Service was very good for a trendy spot.

This hotel was phenomenal and a great way for me an my friend to celebrate our birthdays. We stayed in the 2 bedroom suite and from the moment we stepped into the hotel we were treated like rock stars!!!! We received a personal escort to our room and the concierge also assisted us with getting information on excursions around the area. We had dinner and breakfast at the hotel which were both great dining experiences. The service we received from restaurant manager, hotel concierge, and drivers-basically everyone was top notch. I wish i could remember their names but they definitely made our first visit to South Africa and wonderful experience. When I return to Capetown, I will definitely stay here again!!!!

My husband and I spent four nights there in August, 2011. Our suite was enormous in size and beautifully furnished. The hotel is well located next door to the Museum of South Africa and the lovely Company Gardens. It was easy to walk into downtown Cape Town. The meals we ate at the hotel restaurant were delicious and beautifully presented. The stafff was helpful and professional. The concierge provided us with a car and driver to go to Table Mountain, and the front desk helped us sort out a problem with our return tickets to the U.S. We were extremely pleased with our stay.
