For visitor to Cape Town looking for a convenient, affordable hotel with attitude, Protea Fire and Ice! is an ideal destination. This hip, urban hotel is situated close to the buzz of the CBD (accessible on foot) as well as numerous must-see sights on offer in the city, including Table Mountain and the V&A Waterfront. An ideal family choice, this ‘extreme’ hotel focuses on what they call, ‘cool’ travellers looking to have fun out in the Cape Town sun – they take service, not life, very seriously.
From arrival, the atmosphere is out there and lighthearted, with details such as swinging seats and LED lighting in the lobby setting the scene. Couple this with ornate chandeliers and mock Rococo chairs in luxe embossed fabrics and you get the picture – it’s OTT in the most fun loving fashion imaginable.
This continues in the 182 standard and superior rooms which though compact by industry standards, are bright and welcoming and include everything that the business or leisure traveller could need (including 500mb of free Wifi per day). It is important to note that many of the rooms have the shower and basin inside the actual room although this inclusion is effected in a thoroughly stylish way. Fire & Ice! also boasts a number of two and one-bedroomed suites which epitomise chic city life in their styling.
Although the city’s sights and sounds are on your doorstep, Fire&Ice! has worked hard to create a destination that will encourage guests to stay and play. Colour, attitude and humour are evident at every turn – from the ‘coughin’ death-themed smoking room to a shark cage lift. The concierge desk is especially versed in ensuring guests are given the opportunity to experience some of the off-the-beaten track offerings the city has to offer.
The young and fun theme extends to the restaurant too with its gourmet burger menu (there is a an a la carte menu on offer too), and let’s not forget you can also choose a milkshake from any of their 31 flavours on the menu – it’s one of the things the hotel is famous for!
