Protea Hotel Fire & Ice! Cape Town

Cape Town's Hottest Place to Chill.

It's like shark cage diving, without the cage. Your next stop on the road to fun should be this extreme hotel in the heart of the Mother City.

What kind of city would Cape Town be if the coolest travellers couldn't find the party from their hotel room? Protea Hotel Fire & Ice! Cape Town offers it on a silver platter from the minute you step into the lobby. That's right – the party starts here! But remember, we take everything from service levels to room standards very, very seriously, but never take life too seriously. The hotel is nestled in the heart of Cape Town's entertainment area, a stone's throw away from the best vibrant nightlife hotspots, cafés and restaurants.

    This July, it’s band member Sheldon’s turn to show off his delicious combo creation. Tuck into the juicy Take it Ch’easy burger featuring a 250g ground beef patty gratinated with cheese and crispy bacon cigars. Then satisfy your sweet tooth with the Nutty Barista milkshake, a mouth-watering mix of espresso ice cream folded in caramel icing, and sprinkled with hazelnuts. Mmmmm.
