Gorgeous George Hotel, Cape Town, South Africa

The AHEAD MEA Hotel of the Year Award

Gorgeous George is a one-of-a-kind hotel. From the exterior, the two heritage buildings naturally contrast, yet Urbane Citizen Architecture have successfully combined them to work harmoniously together through details such as architraves, cornices, wooden oak flooring, bare concrete and steel frames. The result is “a timeless, new urban hotspot for the neighbourhood”.
