When hoteliers extinguish all ideas to make a splash in the world of hospitality, they take their vintage RVs on the rooftop. Just when you thought all possible hotel types have been tried across the globe, comes a novel idea, not merely for offering a new way of experiencing vintage Airstream trailers, but also having this concept placed atop an existing hotel, in down town Cape Town, Airstream Penthouse.

Combining down-to-earth trailer park basics with chic urban style and all the creature comforts, the new penthouse trailer park in Cape Town is one of a kind. On the roof of the Grand Daddy Hotel at Long Street and Castle, smack in the heart of things (the hotel formerly known as the Metropole).

So what is really like? Airstream trailers done up by designers and configured with private bar area, braai (South African barbecue) and lounge. Very cool. Great venue for a group, especially a wedding party.
