Very well ballanced
Overall super nice. Only problem we had was the wi-fi connection, which sometime disconnected itself and you had to put in the long in details every time. But can't beat this price and level. Again overall just simply a great ballanced hotel.

Was a pleasure to stay at the Hippo!
I loved how close you are to restaurants, there were plenty to choose from,the location was very good and I felt safe walking around near there. Also the staff were friendly and helpful.
My stay at the Hippo was so nice! After finishing a 19 day overland camping tour of Africa I wanted somewhere really nice to stay. The Hippo certainly did not dissapoint. If I ever come back to Capetown I will definitely stay at the Hoppo again. Thanks.

lovely hotel
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.

bona situació, grans habitacions
cèntric i trànquil. amb cuina, sala , internet i pàrquing.
és un hotel perfecte per conèixer la ciutat, amb petita cuina i àmplia habitació. en lloc cèntric però tranquil. amb bars i restaurants al mateix carrer. ens vàrem sentir molt a gust i ben atesos. es pot esmorzar al bar de sota,sense sortir de l' hotel i molt bé. amb pàrquing gratuit al mateix hotel. un petit apartament.

こじんまりとしたブティックホテルです。近所にショッピングモールや美味しいレストランがたくさんあってとつてもいい感じでした。 朝ごはんが近くのパン屋さんとかから選べるのも素敵です。 ひとつ難点は、タクシーで来ると荷物を階段で二階のレセプションまで上げなきゃいけない事です。大荷物だったので階段での上げ下ろしは若干大変でした。レンタカーを借りると裏口から入るのでエレベーターがあるのですが、、、
