The Capital 15 on Orange offers so much more than just a hotel experience

The Capital 15 on Orange has opened its doors to families, business travellers and long-stay guests after a R20 million refurbishment and upgrade project that has elevated this iconic Cape Town property to being a leader in post-COVID-19 travel and hospitality.


With its 129 exquisitely appointed rooms, suites, and apartments furnished in a contemporary cosmopolitan aesthetic, The Capital 15 on Orange is particularly appealing to the post-office workforce that has been liberated from the confines of corporate spaces, and can deliver exceptional results wherever they may be in the world – even more so if they’re in a chic apartment in one of the world’s most beautiful cities!

The latest jewel in the crown of The Capital Hotels and Apartments, this hotel’s newly converted one- and two-bedroom apartments, up to 120m2 in size, offer a modern and luxurious home away from home experience, complete with quality appliances and finishes. Their spacious separate living rooms, dining areas, and fully equipped kitchens complement beautifully appointed bedrooms complete with percale-linen dressed king sized beds.  

Guests seeking a showstopping themed experience can book one of the hotel’s four signature pods, themed around popular beverage choices, that are reminiscent of spy movie glamour and excitement. Complete with king-sized beds, eye-catching décor, and a discreet but panoramic view of the hotel’s hustle and bustle, these pods offer a truly immersive experience.

“A hotel of this stature and location simply has to offer so much more than state of the art accommodation – it needs to offer a complete hospitality and entertainment experience,” says Marc Wachsberger, managing director of The Capital Hotels and Apartments. “That’s why our rejuvenation of this exceptional property included a focus on upgrading the dining and entertainment offerings, as well as making a significant investment in its conferencing and banqueting options.”

Under the watchful eye of Chef Gerard van Staden, The Emerald Lounge Restaurant and Bar offer an all-day global menu in a tranquil and sophisticated setting – as well as 24-hour in room dining for those whose appetites don’t follow the clock…


The O Bar is a perfect place to gather ahead of planned festivities – even if they’re just to celebrate the joy of being in Cape Town’s most exciting venue – while a designer , cafè, fitness centre, and pool and deck round off the hotel’s offering.


As with all hotels in The Capital Hotels and Apartments portfolio, The Capital 15 on Orange offers complimentary laundry and high-speed uncapped Wi-Fi, with this hotel also offering complimentary shuttles to nearby attractions like the V&A Waterfront.


“This hotel leads the group’s 2021 investments, with The Capital Zimbali and The Capital Mbombela set to open to guests in November,” says Wachsberger. “Demand for our unique apartment-style accommodation at The Capital Mirage in Cape Town was such that it made solid business sense for us to expand in the city – and we’re excited to be able to do so with such a wonderful property.”
