In the remains of the earliest recorded commercial foundry (1876)—where sparks flew and metal bent as engineers and iron founders plied their trade—rises Ideas Cartel’s flagship location.
The Old Foundry Hotel is a true experience of old-world sophistication and contemporary elegance. Choose from 24 rooms, work out at the in-house gym, grab a coffee at the Cartel Café, visit the Golf Simulator and feel the hustle in the air around the Inner City workspaces. Beyond these facilities, Cape Town central waits at your doorstep.
Who says booking a room means sleeping all night?
You’ll have access to Cartel Club members’ lounges and bars, Inner City Coworking spaces across all three locations, Cartel House 113 Loop street Rooftop & Pool as well as our brand new Golf Simulator, lessons and reciprocity with golf courses.
