Protea Hotel Fire & Ice! Cape Town

I t’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.

Rock out every Thursday night with the return of our famous Rockabilly Thursdays. Protea Hotel Fire & Ice! Cape Town will be hosting some of SA’s hottest rock bands. Click Here to view the line up.



Don’t expect a regular ol’ hotel when you book at Protea Hotel Fire & Ice! Cape Town. It’s like going fishing, and hooking an electric eel. Think ultra-chic dining, relaxing spa days, a pool deck tan and pumping nights at the bar!
