Tucked away in the foothills of Table Mountain next to the iconic Bo-Kaap neighbourhood is Protea Hotel Fire & Ice! Cape Town. In line with staying ahead of the trend, the hotel is getting a fresh look in all its bedrooms that’s bound to appeal to visitors from around the world.
Since opening its doors, it has been known as a sophisticated haven reflecting the local chic and cutting-edge attitude that gives the suburb of Tamboerskloof its charm. It’s an affordable home base for exploring the vibrant city centre, being close to the V&A Waterfront, the unparalleled natural surroundings of Table Mountain and the bustling restaurants and shops of Bree, Kloof and Long Streets; the heart of night life in the city centre. It’s ideal for leisure travellers seeking a central spot to tackle their exploration adventures and the business traveller for whom convenience is a must.
The hotel’s signature restaurant is known for its range of quality dishes reflecting the best food of the world, and there’s a comprehensive fitness centre and outdoor swimming pool and relaxation area offering spectacular mountain views. Besides these, all rooms come with modern must-haves such as complimentary Wi-Fi and plush, luxury bedding. Says Danny Bryer, the Director of Sales, Marketing and Revenue Management for Protea Hotels by Marriott: “Protea Hotels Fire & Ice! Cape Town has consistently wowed visitors with its cool, yet practical, interior, from comfortable suites to the striking bar and foyer. Now the rooms will boast an even closer reflection of Cape Town’s vibrant city centre lifestyle and its charming Bo-Kaap heritage, with their splashes of colour and images of the neighbouring Bo-Kaap area that feature in the rooms.”
The Bo-Kaap is a colourful, spicy neighbourhood that’s deeply linked to the city’s heritage and culture, with friendly locals who are marvellous storytellers; curators of Cape Town’s history. The hotel has long been established as a trendy hangout and, with its Warm-up Sessions for music lovers, comedy nights and exciting menu options, including the great African menu, this is a venue well worth visiting.
Since the refurbishment affects the bedrooms only, there will be no impact on guests, who can continue to enjoy a great stay at this pioneering hotel. Says Bryer of the latest, fresh treatment: “This wonderful space has long been a trailblazer among hotels in the heart of the city, an accessible environment with all of the facilities our guests could require. We know that in an urban environment it’s essential to reflect the energy and pace of the city in our designs, and this is what the bedroom refurbishment does. We know that our loyal guests and first-time visitors will love the new-look bedrooms.”
