Dalma, Kylie, Ibraham and the entire staff of Cape Town Hollow were so fantastic, so helpful and so nice, I wouldn't even consider any other place to stay. The room overlooking Table Mountain was excellent and so well maintained. The location near stores, restaurants, museums and parks is perfect. Everything is walkable, or they will arrange a driver or taxi... More

Good food, nice rooms.. My only ask is that they offer a free shuttle to Victoria waterfront area which is ideal for nighttime festivities.. Very safe area.. This hotel is near long street which isn't recommended for night time travels.. I prefer to be in the Victoria waterfront area.. Or at least a free shuttle.. Oh and wifi doesn't work... More

Arrive 8 May, Depart. 12 May The Hotel started their first class service by helping us when our pre-booked ride from the airport did not show up!

Stayed here for 3 nights on our honeymoon and loved it! Located just off Long street and on the hop on & hop off bus route! Great location to see all sites of Cape Town! Hotel breakfast was incredible! There is easily accessible parking across street that was safe and secure.

My mother and I planned a 5-day trip to Cape Town and were keen to stay near the city centre but wanted a room with a mountain view and didn't want to share a double bed, which appeared to be the only option through the various online booking services. I contacted the hotel by phone and they assured me that... More
