My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights while on vacation in South Africa during the month of May of 2015. We loved it here, the entire staff were very friendly, and more than willing to assist us with any questions we had. Their breakfast was excellent, and the entire experience there really makes us want to return again.... More

I am not sure where to start on The 2inn1 Kensington other than to say BOOK BOOK BOOK! From the moment we booked online to go to this amazing hotel we were treated like royalty. We booked online and Steffi immediately emailed us asking if we'd like her to pre-book anything.There is a reason this hotel is rated number 1... More

My husband and I stayed at 2inn1 for 4 nights last week. As others have reviewed here, the service here is amazing. We arrived and immediately Claire sat us down and helped us plan our time in Cape Town. She provided recommendations and directions for every place we wanted to go. Love you, Claire! The inn itself is beautiful and... More

As a frequent traveller I use Tripadvisor a lot to find good hotels and restaurants, so when I had to visit Cape Town on business, this is where I started. Usually when I travel on business I need to stay in large, international-chain, hotels. And they are almost always boring, face-less, impersonal and characterless. But this time I decided to...

From the moment we searched online for a less traditional hotel/holiday accommodation in Cape Town we were intrigued by the amazingly positive reviews posted on trip advisor for 2Inn1. Seldom (if ever) had we read 100% positive reviews. Hours have been spent reviewing hundreds of positive reviews only to be put off by a handful of negative ones. 2Inn1 did... More

We cannot begin to put in words the wonderful time we had at 2inn1. You guys are beyond amazing! When we read the reviews on Trip advisor they sounded too good to be true. But you went over and beyond the expectations we had! Nothing was too much for the team at 2inn1. They went out of their way to... More

We stayed with the lovely folks at 2Inn1 just for two short nights in April at the end of our honeymoon and we couldn't have loved it more. Every single person we encountered was warm and friendly and they went out of their way to welcome you and make sure you had everything you needed without ever being intrusive. Steffi... More

We visited 2inn1 in 2010, and vowed to return for South Africa for our 10th anniversary. We couldn't wait that long! Even before we arrived we felt the familiar friendliness of the team at 2inn1 (they booked tickets to Robben Island and made several dinner reservations for us in advance of our arrival) and we felt that they were just...

I found this hotel based on TripAdvisor reviews and I'm pleased to say that it lived up to the reviews. I was in Cape Town for a business conference and 2inn1 provided a place to relax that made the trip feel like a bit of a vacation as well. Each aspect of my experience with 2inn1-- communication prior to my... More

2inn1 is a relatively small boutique hotel or guest house located in the most beautiful garden suburb of Cape Town at the foot of Table Mountain. It is located in walking distance to some of the city's most interesting restaurants (Kloof St). The rooms are stylish and contemporary and the outdoor pool area tranquil. The thing which really makes this... More
