Great accommodation in a great area of Cape Town. The room was spacious and well equipped. The location near restaurants and shops was good as we were able to walk. Safe parking. Good value for money.

The rooms were very comfortable, clean and spacious with a handy. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The hotel is well situated to many restuarants, a good Woolworths Food store for self-catering and to holiday attractions like beaches and the V&A Waterfront.

Travelled from Jhb for Ultra Trail Cape Town and stayed in the Mini Cooper suite. We parked the car upon arrival and walked everywhere after that... even to the start of the race and back again. Clean, quiet and VERY spacious accommodation with every amenity you could possibly need. Perfect for self-catering too. Funky decor and very comfy bed. Very friendly 24hrs reception staff and secure parking. Thank you Hippo!! We'll be back 💜

The receptionist was so lovely and I thoroughly loved my stay. There were minor issues regarding gate access and no dishcloths in the executive suite but really that is nothing compared to the comfortable bed, the fast wifi, the beautiful amenities and the centrality of the hotel. I loved it and wished I could have stayed longer! Thank you Hippo Boutique !
