“Just stay here, you won't be sorry.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2011

Exemplary personal service, beautiful setting, delicious breakfasts.

Olaf and his staff couldn’t have been more welcoming and accommodating. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble. Bernadette and Patricia are so sweet. The amount of food and the quality of the selection were FAR better than what we expected. My omelets were perfectly prepared and the fruit and juices were great as well. We stayed in two rooms, Suites 5 and 1. Suite 5 is on the 2nd floor and includes two sun chaises, a wooden patio table and umbrella as well as a Jacuzzi. Suite 1 is downstairs and has a bigger terrace with a Jacuzzi, a small glass and metal table with two chairs, one chaise for sunning, a sofa and a large freestanding metal and wood hammock. The upstairs suite 5 is quieter than suite 1. The beds in both rooms are comfortable. Each room has 27” flat screen TVs and DVD players. There is a Bose sound dock for iPods. There is also a selection of DVDs to borrow. Each room has Lavazza pod coffee makers. They supply 2 complimentary pods/day and after that each pod costs $3.00, and worth it.
Olaf, your dedication to your creation is obvious. Congratulations!

Room Tip: If you want to suntan get Suite 5, the view is great. We preferred Suite 1 just because of the layou...

Very nice welcome in this small, trendy and modern boutique hotel.
We particularly enjoyed the jacuzzi in room N°1! What a treat after long days visiting the beautiful city of Cape Town! The staff is very kind and helpful and know lots of nice addresses to go to. The hotel is easily accessible and located not far from the city, it's definitely a great place to stay at. If you get the chance, also try the massages...

Room Tip: Room N°1 has a jacuzzi

O on Kloof was our first experience of accommodation in South Africa and what a great ambassador for the country. From the moment we arrived after an overnight flight from London to the time we left a week later we could not have been looked after better. The hotel's website does not do justice to the hotel itself which is beautifully presented and feels like home. The attention to detail is excellent and Olaf has created a winning formula. Most importantly of all his staff make you feel like a member of the family and nothing is too much trouble. Before we started our holiday we had been given some names of must do restaurants but not enough to cover a week's stay - we needn't have worried as the hotel provided us with recommendations, all of which came up trumps. Particular thanks to Bernadette, Patricja, Martin and Diverson. We would love to return to Cape Town and this is where we will stay.

Room Tip: A room with a sea view would be perfect. Our room faced the road but was very quiet.

We don't usually stay in such luxe places, but we were able to get a great deal & the place was highly recommended...


We are so glad that we stayed here. From the minute we arrived to the minute we left it was a delight. Delicious breakfasts and an impeccable hotel.

We stayed here on the last few nights of our honeymoon and as with all the other reviewers we loved it. We were made to feel so welcome by all the staff, the rooms are lovely as is the food. As the title says we did wish we had stayed here for longer and really didn't want to leave.
We booked through Trailfinders who advertise it as 4 star but for us O on Kloof is definitely 5 star. We would love to return. Thanks for a great end to a great honeymoon.

we were welcomed with a lovely glass of champagne after our long flight from UK. we were allowed to book in early and we sat with the manager while she went through some places for us to visit the rest of that day and other days.
the room was very clean and modern. we had fresh petals placed in the bath adn shower every day. there was a safe, hairdryer, european electric plug point (very useful) adn lots of useful information in the room. the pool looked great but never tried it. there was a small gym that also looked good!! a great smaller establishment with a big atmosphere adn very helpfull staff. well done Olaf, great staff.

Room Tip: we had teh down stairs room with private balcony and curtains for privacy.

I always thought perfection couldn't exist, however it does. The perfect place to stay in Cape Town is O-on-Kloof in Bantry Bay. Olaf runs a small luxury design hotel with 8 perfect rooms, a pool, gym, spa, delicious breakfast and terrific service that the major chains can't match. Absolute Perfection. Olaf and his staff can advise you about all the places that you want to be seen at or where you can have amazing meals, or about the Cape town gay scene.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Viva La O! Olaf Dambrowski has reinvented himself yet again. His boutique hotel nestled on the slopes of Lion’s Head, overlooking the Atlantic has been reborn after 4 years of trade! A space, charmingly transformed into a new streamlined sleek look. The black marble tiles from the front entrance, combined with the water feature lend a slight ostentatious air, yet quietly enchanting. They find their way to the undercover “outside” dining area, which in turns allow for interior and exterior interaction. ... more   less
