The Stock Exchange Hotel is the place you want to be at this summer
CAPE TOWN - Looking for a hot, trendy and new place to say this summer in Cape Town? Well we may have the right place for you!
The Stock Exchange hotel in Woodstock is one of the most interesting buildings in the area and is genuinely a gem that very few people know about....for now.
Arguably Cape Town’s most creative neighbourhood, Woodstock is home to a captivating hotel, Stock Exchange, which officially opened in March 2019.
The hotel is managed by Newmark Hotels, Residences, Reserves & Lodges, a diverse and growing hospitality group pioneered by Neil Markovitz.
The group also includes nearby properties such as the iconic Victoria & Alfred Hotel, the Queen Victoria Hotel and The Onyx, which opened in December 2018, and a number of other properties in Southern and East Africa.
We had the opportunity to visit the hotel in November and it does not disappoint.
Stock Exchange is located in the WEX1 development – a mixed-use building that additionally comprises residential units, restaurants, a swimming pool, a gym, an entertainment deck and retail outlets.
The greater building, located on Albert Road opposite the Woodstock Exchange and in proximity to The Old Biscuit Mill, was designed by Vivid Architects and was developed by esteemed property development company, Signatura in partnership with Indigo Properties.
Stock Exchange comprises thirty-three apartment-style rooms, namely Studios, Studio Deluxe units and Two-Bedroom Apartments. Uniquely, the rooms have been split into three distinct themes: Urban Jungle, Urban Art and Urban Pattern, conceptualised, designed and implemented by Tracy Lee Lynch and her team at Studio Leelynch.
The hotel also has a beautiful pool and bar area that is a must for the hot summer days that Cape Town is know for.
The greater interior design principle places much emphasis on the celebration of local talent and the formation of a genuine connection with the neighbourhood. As such, furniture and décor items in the Stock Exchange’s rooms are pinpointed on a “design map” of Woodstock, enabling guests to discover where locally made furniture, art and décor items in the rooms were crafted, painted and manufactured.
The property is ideally located close to a MyCiTi bus stop, bicycle lanes and a train station, allowing for easy access to Woodstock’s vibrant points of interest and Cape Town’s plethora of tourist attractions. Walking tours are available through reception, also allowing guests to discover the region.
