We stayed at Cape Cadogan for the first three nights of our honeymoon and it was the perfect beginning to our trip. The hotel is in a great location off of Kloof Nek Road where there are lots of great restaurants and shops and not far from Table Top Mountain. The hotel is very clean and elegantly decorated with a... More

A very pretty boutique hotel located close to downtown in the "Gardens" area. Plenty of cafes and restaurants nearby, and downtown is extremely walkable. The hotel itself is put together very well with each room having a unique feel (a notable feature is the gargantuan bathroom). We know each room is unique because we arrived before our room was ready,... More

The Cape Cadogan is a charming boutique hotel in the heart of Cape Town. The staff were super helpful and nice. We stayed in the Owner's Villa which is an absolutely huge room but would say it is not necessary for 2 people as it may to be too large. I would recommend the Cape Cadogan to anyone looking for...

This is a charming boutique hotel away from the ultra-touristy V&A waterfront, Rooms are very comfortable and quiet. Ask for a room overlooking the courtyard. The staff was always helpful with every request. It's a neighborhood hotel and within walking distance of Company Gerdens and many museums and shops and a short taxi ride to Table Mt..

A very chic hotel in a great location. We stayed in one of the garden rooms which had views of Table Mountian. All the staff were helpful and we felt we were staying in the "real" Capetown with many restaurants close by as well as being only 5 minutes in a cab from Camps Bay or the Waterfront.

This is a really fantastic hotel. Great location in a safe residential side street just off the main road. Lovely, well appointed rooms with a massive bathroom. The cooked to order breakfast omelettes are a great start to the day ! What elevates this small boutique hotel above everything else however are the amazing staff. Nothing was too much trouble...

We stayed at the Cape Cadogan hotel for 3 nights. It's very closeby to the centre of Capetown. The rooms are clean and nicely designed. The bathroom was nice and equiped with both a bathtub as a shower which allowed you to relax. Both the room as the bathroom were made out of natural stone and very nice. It's definitely... More

The only thing I could have asked for is more time in Capetown and more time at the Cape Cadogan. Friendly, accomodating staff. Super convenient location close to restaurants and Long Street. Fabulous breakfast.
