Extreme Protea Hotel Cape Town is the first of its kind adventure hotel, offered exclusively by Protea Hotels, Africa's largest and leading hotel group. If you're looking for a different twist on traditional superior hotels, the Extreme Hotel Cape Town is the place for you. They'll have you climbing the walls ... no, really, there's a 5 story climbing wall on the outside of the building. You can hang around in the reception area (literally); there is even a hanging chair for those who really like to "hang around". Swim around the restaurant...the glass walls between the restaurant and pool, along with the fantastic lighting, definitely draw a lot of interest. In case you are not yet convinced that this hotel is one of a kind, continue reading to learn more about the Extreme Hotel's interesting attractions and unique character.

The Extreme Hotel's location is unbeatable. Situated at the base of beautiful Table Mountain, the hotel is walking distance from the V&A Waterfront, a desired location for both the locals and foreigners. The selection of great restaurants in the immediate vicinity of the hotel is astounding. The hotel's helpful staff will gladly offer suggestions for their favorite eateries. The hotel is also conveniently located only 15 miles from the airport.

Extreme Hotel Cape Town boasts 130 hip, happening, and well-appointed rooms. Each room features a comfortable king size bed or two single beds, where you can lie back and enjoy the numerous channels on the LCD flat-screen TV or be lulled to sleep by the tunes on the Bose alarm clock radio. All rooms are equipped with adjustable air-conditioning, tea/coffeemaker, wireless internet access, and safety deposit-box. One of the room's more interesting features is the in-room shower. Luckily, the room also has a private bathroom for the toilet.

Despite these comfortable room amenities, with all the city and hotel attractions, you're not likely to spend too much time in the rooms. If you are looking for a night in, the Extreme Hotel offers a Private Sound Room. As its name implies, this room can be rented privately for your listening pleasure. Get together a group of friends and get blown away by the quality of the Bose Surround Sound speakers situated around the room to give maximum effect. The Sony LCD screen brings your viewing to life, whether it be a wildlife movie, music video or your own private holiday videos. And, for the kid inside all of us, the room is also equipped with the latest in gaming technology with the new X-Box 360.

Outdoor pool

Like many superior hotels, the Extreme Hotel features an outdoor swimming pool. However, as you've probably guessed by now, the Extreme Hotel's pool is far from your standard hotel swimming pool. The wall between the restaurant and pool is made of glass and is, therefore, see-through. We're not sure who gets the most entertainment out of the pool, the swimmers or the diners, but the entertainment there will be. The fantastic music and underwater lighting and contribute to the overall ambience of both the pool deck and the restaurant.

Another great outside area at the hotel is A Cup. Named for its cup-like structure, A Cup features sunken seating surrounded by the rounded walls, where you can hide from the world and share some poolside drinks with your travel companions.

In addition to all of these exciting features, the Extreme Hotel offers services and amenities typical of superior class hotels. These services include, but are certainly not limited to: excellent dining, room service, and first rate customer service. Above all, the Extreme Hotel Cape Town offers you a place to relax, a base from which to explore Cape Town, and a friendly place to call home at the end of each day.
