The Onyx

4.5* Hotel

Guests can look forward to a chic city experience, on par with apartment offerings in New York, London and Paris.

Your Travel Experience with Where To Africa

The new kid of design superstars on the block. The Onyx is not only a highly sought-after residential complex – so you mix and match with real locals – but also Cape Town’s newest hip hotel. An old bank building turned modern complex, the Onyx features sleek black and white interiors with a sophisticated splash of colour and metallic design pieces here and there. It is centrally located with an urban flair and close to all of Cape Town’s must-see attractions, whether it’s the iconic Table Mountain, the white sandy beaches or the historic wine farms.

Since the hotel markets itself as self-catering, most guests choose to dine out or enjoy meals in their apartment. If you just feel like a cup of coffee or a sandwich, the ground-floor restaurant MRKT won’t disappoint. Finish the day off with a swim in the pool and stunning city views.
