Hippo Happiness”

We had a brilliant 10 days at the Hippo Boutique Hotel. The staff were all friendly and very helpful. Coffee or cold water in the lounge was available all the time. The room was much larger than expected. There was a massive bath which I would normally have used - but since there was a level 4 water shortage notice in the bathroom - I decided not to indulge myself. The shower was brilliant though. The bed was comfy and we had everything we needed. TV channels are a bit limited but who wants to watch TV in Cape Town! I only gave Cleanliness Good instead of Excellent because something had rolled under the bed and when I went to retrieve it there was a lot of dust under it. Picky I know but that is the difference between Good and Excellent on the system. The location on Kloof Street made it so easy to get anywhere and everywhere on foot so we were able to soak up all the sights and sounds. We walked to the Free Cable Car Shuttle (twice) it took us 35 minutes and was really easy and safe on both of the routes we chose.

great location, friendly and helpful staff and value for money

It's a great stay and will definitely recommend this hotel to others. It's really near the famous long street. On Park road, you can find lots of restaurants on and around the corner. Breakfast will be served in 3-4 different coffee shops near hotels. Breakfast are great. Hotel staff are really helpful and friendly. Hotel room has everything you need. There are 3 restaurants on the ground floor of the hotel. It's quite noisy during weekend but very calm on weekday. Kloof street house restaurant 100 metres from hotel is really hip and nice food and drinks. I had really great stay with Hippo Boutique hotel. Want to visit them again soon.

Great stay!”

Location is very practical and felt safe. (You can tell is a nice neighborhood because of the nice cars parked in the street). Very cool restaurants walking distance (Kloof Street House was the coolest for dinner). We booked a back room since I saw some people complained about the noise and it was perfect. An absolute steal for the price. Room was bigger than the average business hotels downtown and all was brand new and very clean. Loved the coffee/tea in the reception. They also let us leave our bags after checkout and hang out in the couches at reception while we charged our phones. Book this if you are in Cape Town!

I really liked the hotel. Great location, walk to Long street, few minutes to the Table mountain, very nice and close to restaurants downstairs, choice of restaurants for breakfast, even though I did not really like the service at the restaurant that we chose, doesn't matter though. Spent two nights, very clean, beautiful room, big I liked the bath more. Had to be considerate of water situation in Cape Town. Some noise from the restaurant downstairs but not disturbing on anything Overall, I will stay again. Thanks

Amazing boutique hotel in the heart of trendy Gardens”

What an outstanding hotel in the heart of vibes Gardens. Secure parking, a myriad of restaurants within a 5 min walk, and situated within close proximity to all the CPT hotspots. As this is a boutique hotel, don’t expect a pool or bar, or even an in-house restaurant, but the hotel has made great arrangements with two local adjoining eateries to cater for this, and the CPT beaches are only a 10 min drive away, plus the room size and in-room facilities more than make up for this! Great hotel, will definitely be a regular here!

Excellent Hotel in an exceptional Location!!”

Everything is good about this hotel.We stayed here during our 3 night long stay in Cape Town in October 2017. The staff here is very hospitable and they even assisted me for the Table Mountain Cable car reservation. The rooms are extremely spacious and the washroom was too elegant. In fact, we felt that the room was like a mini suite. Additionally, it is located right near all the touristy places and the area boasts of a number of shops,bars and restaurants catering to different tastes!! All in all, a wonderful experience!! Would definitely recommend.

Nice place, location is perfect”

Great location for exploring Cape Town, all the best bars and restaurants are within walking distance. Staff are lovely and rooms big and clean. The only thing that wasn’t working was the swimming pool and the temp was in the 30’s so would have been nice to have the opportunity to cool down but that might have been down to water shortage.

Guest feedback is imperative for us to ensure whether or not we are meeting and exceeding our guests' expectations. We need to know when we have done right, but more importantly, when we have done wrong! Our swimming pool is closed due to the water level being low and we cannot clean it, however our guests lie around the pool and not swim in it. I am not sure how the other hotels are getting water as we have a serious drought in this city and it is against the law to fill up your pool. Some hotels are buying water in with tanks, we are in the process of working on a solution for these challenges. Your interest and concern are therefore extremely valuable to us, and we hope that you will be staying with us again soon. We should welcome another opportunity to show you Hippo Boutique Hospitality at its best!

Great location in the Garden neighborhood”

The hotel rooms were spacious, clean, and comfortable. We had a mini-kitchen that was always stocked with coffee and some biscottis. The staff was helpful and had 24-hour reception. And the location is loaded with restaurants and bars in the Garden Area. You're also about a 5-10 minute walk to the famous Long Street bar area. They also had parking. This place is recommended if you're staying in the Garden area which is nice a quieter than the City Bowl and Waterfront areas.

Great little hotel and a great location ”

We would stay here again. Staff was helpful. The location is great with tons of restaurants near by. Had a choice of breakfast places - we ate at knead and it was perfect. Location is central to other sites on Cape Town. All in all we had a great stay

What a pleasure!”

I can't reiterate enough how enjoyable the whole experience was! Sindi and Sharon are two of the most helpful, friendly and efficient hospitality staff I have ever had the pleasure of dealing with. The hotel itself has great facilities and EXCELLENT location. We were able to walk to quite a few great spots and there are shops located within a block or 2 from the hotel. Absolute convenience! Try it!
