I really liked it. When I first walked into this hotel I must admit I was ready to hate the place. From the pimping couch in the elevator up to reception, to all the shiny surfaces and sparkly features it all just felt a little bit.... much. But it wasn’t long until I was smiling away, having fallen under the unapologetic BLING of it all! The rooms were spacious and delightfully decorated – a real luxury. Nice touches included an ipod docking station and a selection of DVDs in the drawer. There’s a good looking restaurant and a cafe, where you can ‘build your own’ cheese platter if you wish. Can’t say I’ve tried it but keep hearing that the breakfasts are to die for. At the risk of overusing the word, I would tell you that the bar, with a separate, almost treehouse-like private area above, is completely pimping. The conference facilities at this hotel also stood out – very happening and modern.Recommended for:Luxury Travelers

I am not a design hotel kinda person. I am much more a fan of older, smaller, cuter hotels with some sort of a history. I however love love love the 15 on Orange Hotel. Yes, it is huge and it does not have roots in the 18th century, but it is nevertheless a stunning and rather impressive hotel.
One of the first things I noticed is how the in-house architects have played with light and a plethora of different textures. The foyer is huge and flows over into various communal spaces, including the restaurant and the Cassis coffee shop. The rooms are vast and massive, and are equipped with all sorts of gadgets including plasmas and iPod docking stations. The chocolates and nuts upon arrival in the rooms were a real treat (and more chocolates followed when we returned from dinner).
The drinks in the stunning Murano bar are a bit on the pricy side, but they are worth it. My Mojito was one of the best cocktails I ever had.
From the 15 on Orange, Cape Town lies at your feet. There are plenty of bars and restaurants nearby (Long Street and Kloof Street are both a stone's throw away), including a favourite of mine which is called Rick's Café Americain.
