                I loved to stay there...but for one thing: the WiFi is a real problem. Very shaky and practically non existent in my 8th floor room. That is a problem if one has to stay in contact with others via WhatsApp. Apart from that the location is great, central and safe, the staff is very competent and friendy, it is spotless clean and the food in the Restaurant is good. There is a free shuttle to the Waterfront, too. I would return for my next stay, but hope a solution for the WiFi can be found, even for a charge.

                Good value for good price in the centre of townStaying in that hotel was a really nice experience. We enjoyed the room, the view on table mountain, and the service in the restaurant. The personnel at the reception desk seems to be, however, pretty much not interested in their customers: there was little to none interaction when coming in or going out of the hotel, no greetings, no smiling, no nothing. Staff in the restaurant was, in turn, very helping and service-oriented, including allowing for extensive over-the-hour breakfast time. Having seen the difference between "view on table mountain" or not, we would say that is absolutely worth paying the price for the mountain view as the indoor-view is straight against a hotel wall a couple of meters away and not really nice.

                Mountain. View. Room.

                We arrived before check in time and was turned away at the desk, which is fine. It will be really sweet if the lady would have try and see if there was available room for us to check in 2 hours earlier, rather than a flat out no. Despite stating that carpark facilities was available, it was not at the hotel itself, rather it was located at another hotel and we had to park and drag our bags across a busy road. After a long day of sightseeings, we went back to the hotel in the evening, exhausted, dragging our bags behind. Our room was at the top floor and we had to take a lift. They had 2 old-fashion lifts, one was out of service, which we need to pull open the door ourselves in order to get into the lift. They were no sign informing us of that, we missed the first round and had to wait for the lift to make another round before we were able to get in. This happened despite the staffs walking up and down the lobby, and nobody care to inform. Finally, as we managed to get to our room. We were greeted with a lovely view of Table Mountain before the next disaster strike. As my partner took a shower, the drainage system wasn't working well, the water seeped out of the bathroom and flooded the room's carpet. Oh well..

                Well located, modernised older hotel ”

                Location, views, staff

                I paid extra to have a view of Table Mountain and it was worth it. If I hadn't been so busy I could have spent hours in my room enjoying that incredible sight. This is an older hotel so some of the fittings are more 3 star than 4-star: for example, the bathroom is small a little smelly if you don't air it out, lacks shelves and positions things like toilet roll holders awkwardly; the pool is very small; the internet allowance of 500MB per day seemed generous enough but the connection slow and it was difficult to log out: even when I turned off my WiFi to be sure it still kept running down. However the public areas and the restaurant are great and the staff very diligent and helpful. The location near the Company Gardens and around the corner from Long Street are superb, although a few unsavoury characters hang around there at night so solo or female guests might prefer taking a taxi back.

                Good location, near & walking distance to few attractions, yet quiet surrounding.

                We like the fact it is just a stone throw away from the Company's Garden and the Iziko Musuem (just cross the street), Long Street, Green Market Square & the Jewish Museum. Yet the location is not overly busy nor noisy. However, the hotel lifts are the old-fashioned type that u need to pull and/or push a heavy steel door before exit or enter. If handling many bags and luggages, it is a challenge! A 4-star rated hotel should have someone helping the guests most if not all of the time. Breakfast was average. I won't rate it 4 star.

                I'll definitely return”

                Cleanliness and decor of the rooms and hotel in general, great food and excellent service,

                The stay was comfortable, pleasant, peaceful and an all round pleasure. I had initially booked into the Best Western Cape Suites Hotel (which had received a high Agoda rating) and found it dirty, noisy and unpleasant. Fortunately I found the Cape Town Hollow Boutique Hotel. What a contrast! It was pure joy to stay there. Definitely a keeper. Can't wait to go back.

                Location, staff and cleanliness

                We stayed here as a group of 5 from 6-12th Feb 2015, the hotel is in a very good location, within easy walking distance of long street and kloof street,where there are lots of shops/bars and restaurants, taxis are also readily avaiable around the corner.The company gardens is also around the corner. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast included a good selection of hot and cold food, and there was a bar & restaurant in the hotel too. The rooms were spacious and bright, and 2 bottles of water were included every day. Overall we had a very good stay and would recomend this hotel.

                light-filled room, location, buffet breakfast

                Staff went out of their way to accommodate my food allergy (even provided gluten-free bread!) and were cheerful and helpful. We booked a room with a mountain view, and the view of Table Mountain and the Company's Gardens across the road was glorious. However, the wind whistled through the doors and windows all night. The non-view rooms appear to be the same size and furnished the same way, so if quiet is more important to you than a view, book one of the non-view rooms. Either way the staff and service will be first-rate.

                The location

                I found the staff to be very friendly and always willing to help considering it took three rooms to get a room with working air conditioning. The location was very central to the main street and quiet considering the level of noise that does come from Long street, along with the great views, I found the Wi-Fi needed improving but overall nice place to spend.
