Cobbled Church Square
Cape Town boutique hotel Labotessa combines national history, indulgent design and continental culture – a medley that perfectly captures the city’s cosmopolitan soul. Built in the 17th century, the building is the second oldest in South Africa, overlooking historic Church Square in the heart of the CBD. Don’t be fooled, however: you won’t detect the slightest hint of stuffiness as you step through the stone entrance and into the perfumed lobby, which doubles as a Diptyque boutique. Each of the seven suites is serviced by a lift that takes you right to the door, and feature high ceilings, parquet floors and large windows overlooking historic buildings and Lion’s Head mountain. Downstairs, guests and locals hold court at Labotessa Café, a brunch favourite that spills onto a greenery-filled terrace reminiscent of the genteel Gallic courtyards.
