Daddy Long Legs

Where: Cape Town, South Africa

Cool Factor: "Funky, affordable accommodation" is the mandate behind this budget-friendly art hotel, where each of the 13 rooms is decorated by a different painter, photographer, poet, musician or designer. All the bedrooms have a private bathroom, local musicians are frequently tapped for performances and the location on buzzing Long Street can't be beat. While the hotel won a 2012 TripAdvisor award for its trendiness, hospitality is also paramount, if the free welcome drink is any indication.

Nightly Rates: $76 to $121
