Who says booking a room means sleeping all night?

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.

What our guests say.

“The stay at the old Foundry was like living in a fairytale! The fact that they kept the authenticity of the 1904 established Foundry just shows the historical value they kept when restoring and transforming the building. The photos are true to the reality. A definite must stay when in Cape Town!! Friendly staff, very clean and comfy room with Netflix and Nespresso adding a nice touch.”
