We booked the mountain view room and got a room on the 2nd floor. You could hardly see the mountain. Also the windows need to be replaced, as there is a bus parking right in front of the hotel and this sucks in the mornings when you want to sleep and a group of 50 people checks out at 5:30AM....

My partner and I stayed here a couple of weeks ago, for two nights. We were very impressed with the standard of decor throughout the hotel and the room we had, which was on the second floor. I had asked for a 'mountain-view' room, which it was except there were a couple of buildings and a crane in the foreground!... More

My wife and I arrived here for a five day stay on our way to a safari just to rest up from jet lag from the U.S. and because this hotel was part of a package. We were both very pleasantly surprised at its excellence in every regard. First, it's situated right across the street from the South Africa National... More

We booked here based on the very positive reviews which are largely fair but the relatively small sampling of reviewers skews the rating somewhat. We are in general agreement that the staff is the greatest asset at this hotel. In particular, I would like to mention Neville, Kylie and Ibrahim [who made sure that we made our flight]. Our Table...

We like the location of the hotel and its spacious room. Just a stone throw away are Company's Garden and Iziko Museum. Long Street and Green Market Square are within 5-10 minutes walk respectively. However, the bath room is very small with a narrow vanity right on top of the toilet bowl, to me it's inconvenient and unhygienic! Breakfast is... More

Dear Carrie, thank you very much for your recent review on Cape Town Hollow. We are happy that you enjoyed the location of our hotel.

I was attending a conference at the nearby African Pride hotel which I felt was overpriced, and asked the travel agent for a more reasonable room within walking distance. To my pleasant surprise, walking distance turned out to be a stone's throw. I really enjoyed the breakfasts - perfectly done poached egg along with a selection of smoked salmon, cheeses,... More
