The Capital Hotels and Apartments

The Capital Hotels and Apartments focus their attention on what really matters. Spacious hotel rooms or apartments that free you of the public places that invade your personal space, conference facilities suitable to big-name networking and good for business brain food to get you through the lull of the extra-time meetings.

The apartments are fully equipped for longer stays so you can make yourselves at home; order some groceries and cook up a storm to impress your colleagues, family or, well, you. They also have top-quality gyms to relieve the stress of ergonomically-unfriendly air travel and keep your fitness levels up while you're away from home.

Did we mention location, location, location? Traffic is the greatest time waster and that's why when you stay at a Capital Hotel or Apartment, you are in the heart of where you need to be. All their hotels and apartments are situated in the major, big-deal districts of Sandton, Menlyn, Rosebank, Cape Town and Umhlanga, with more coming soon.
