The scent of tuberoses fills the air as one steps into the Cape Cadogan, a 12-room boutique hotel in a restored Georgian house. It's a sensual kind of place that feels private, with all-white decor, sparkling chandeliers, and open, travertine-tiled bathrooms. It's a two-minute walk from Cape Town's trendy Kloof Street, where you'll find delis, home design and clothing shops, and restaurants. Book room no. 8: Its windows open onto the treetops, and you won't feel like you're even in the city. Breakfast is included in the room rate and is served in a small, sunny courtyard next to a plunge pool.

From the editors of Condé Nast Traveler:
This elegant 12-room retreat is tucked away on a quiet residential street in Gardens, a fashionable and quirky neighborhood known for its restaurants and shops. Table Mountain forms a majestic backdrop, the famous Clifton beaches are a ten-minute drive away, and many of the city's top attractions are within walking distance. A national monument, the original nineteenth-century Georgian house with Victorian influences still looks (from the outside) like a beautiful private home, complete with manicured garden and pool terrace. Inside, sumptuous fabrics, plump sofas, vases stuffed with sweet-smelling flowers, sepia prints in silver frames, and wrought-iron chandeliers create a luxurious, thoroughly grown-up atmosphere. Some of the accommodations are about as roomy as a French garret, while others are disproportionately enormous, with spacious open-plan bathrooms, but all are light and airy and have satellite TV, a DVD/surround-sound system, and high-speed Internet access.—2005 Hot List

When to go: Late summer (Feb.–March), for warm, sunny weather and sparser crowds.

Which room to book: No. 8, for its balcony with Table Mountain views

Amenities: Pool, 24-hour Room Service, Wheelchair-accessible
