                It's a good clean hotel. Rooms are very spacious. It offers free parking. Well located in kloof region which is packed with some nice restaurants. V&A waterfront is only zar26 away by Uber. At USD 61 per night it's decent. Negatives: no amenities like gym, bar, spa. Well at least none of what I've been told about. View from room gives to a back alley wall, hence no nice view.

                Loved staying here, everything is walkable and close for food & drink and shopping. Great staff, Uber is quickly available at all times and extremely affordable. Rooms in the back are quiet. Rooms up from top floor have great balcony to sit out on but two restaurants below to the left and right are noisy to around 10 at night, Would stay here again anytime.

                The Hippo Hotel was perfect for our 5 night visit to this city. Centrally located. Although the facility does not have a restaurant, there are many choices only steps away. View of Table Mountain from our balcony patio. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a good and reasonable hotel.

                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!

                The one great thing about this hotel is the location, but that's about it. ”
                There's coffee in the room, like any other hotel, but only stocked with decaf. When I went to the front desk, they scrounged around for some non decaf pods and gave them to me. But during my 5 night stay, they never replinished the rooms caffeinated coffee. Then they don't take much pride in telling you how things work there. For example, parking. No one informed me that my room key could open the gates. Nor did anyone inform me that, while breakfast came with my booking, it was actually a 100 Rand voucher at the restaurant adjoining the hotel. It can get you the most basic of breakfasts. Most hotels and B&Bs in that range in Cape Town offer a buffet of fruits, pastries, and granolas, as well as to order eggs. Not here. At the Hippo, they might forget to clean your room, like they did mine on the second day. When I inquired, they said, oh sorry, they missed it. And last, but not least, don't have them do your laundry. They might ruin a shirt and lose it, like they did with mine.

Nice set of shops around the cornor and a Woolworths for anything you need from groceries to deodorant just a few steps away. Restaurants also near by all within walking distance. DEFINITELY adding as my go-to-place to stay in CT.

                Easy walking distance to all of the museums we wanted to visit and the market. The room we stayed in had a kitchenette, which we used mostly for cold drinks and coffee, but there is also a microwave and sink. Also, lots of interesting restaurants in the area. Choose the breakfast option, if you can. It was well worth the money, and one breakfast option is the restaurant that's right next to the hotel. Parking on site.

                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!

                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.

                Perfect apart from the noise”
                Loved the spacious room and everything about this hotel, apart from being given a room right by the elevator so you can hear people making a racket while they wait for the lifts and generally being inconsiderate to folks trying to sleep or relax in their rooms
