We stayed two nights at this modern hotel. The room was clean, comfortable and quiet. The staff was helpful and always displayed a friendly attitude. A member of the staff even volunteered to go with me when I told him I was going to a nearby ATM. Withdrawing money in Africa is a two person affair. One person withdraws the...

The hotel is on a quiet side street that is within walking distance to the active shopping and night life on Long Street. Beautifically situated with some rooms facing Table Mountain, the staff were friendly and professional, the food was good and the rooms excellent .A nice hotel if you are in town for a convention or a general tourist....

Situated next to the Company Gardens so a bit away from the V&A Waterfront - bit too touristy. Good sized bedrooms, excellent restaurant (dined there twice), great staff - and important for South Africa - safe, secure parking at next door hotel (about £3 per day). Will visit again.

If you want a hotel at a more reasonable cost outside the waterfront complex then this is ideal. Upper rooms have a view of Table Mountain and the staff were very helpful. It is opposite company gardens which has a nice tea room and near to many restaurants. We used Uber which was great to get about. Parking is in...

Good view and location but everything else was disappointing. The breakfast spread was minimal and the same on the 4 days that we were there. Breakfast was not satisfying. The electrical sockets in the room were faulty and the design of the sockets made it such that our adapters hang loosely. Looks dangerous. The hairdryer couldn't operate properly. I had...

We stayed for 5 nights and found the location in the centre of town was very good for getting around both on foot but we were central for getting to many of the tourist sites. The hotel is small, the rooms are large with lots of space, an average and simple bathroom and a comfortable bed. Walls are a little...

Cape Town does not lack accommodations and it can be difficult to choose. Especially if one likes to be central the choice is usually limited by ones wallet as it can get very quickly very expensive. What a pleasant surprise to discover one of the newer Boutique Hotels that opened its doors in the famous Queen Victoria Road. Situated opposite...

I am literally writing this review as I sit on my bed in Cape Town Hollow Boutique Hotel. My friend and I have been staying here for 4 days, and initially we loved it so much that we extended our stay and decided to make this our home while in Cape Town. Unfortunately, since last night, our room has started...

Good location near companys garden and museums and long street . Nice breakfast and friendly staff but not quite a boutique hotel . The small splash pool was a bit enclosed but would probably be welcome in the summer heat. Comfy spacious bedroom.

I stayed here for a business trip and found the rooms to be of incredible quality with the most amazing views. One has to pay a bit more for a mountain facing room, but even though I chose not to go for that option my room still had an incredible view. The hotel is perfectly situated close to all Cape...
