This place is conveniently located between Signal Hill, Table Mountain, and the waterfront area. The staff was very very friendly and more than happy to help plan your days if you would like. The breakfast was great. We were out most of the day so we did not have lunch or dinner there.

Steffi and Claire and the team at 2Inn1 Kensington could not do enough for you. We stayed here for 6 days with our son. The room was very comfortable, the breakfasts were delicious but what sets 2Inn1 apart was the incredibly friendly service and Steffi and Claire.

Klaus and Claire are the BEST people! This is the first time I have reviewed anything on here and they provided the motivation to do so by being so helpful, accommodating, and friendly. At our first breakfast there (which awesome), Klaus sat down and helped us plan our few days in Cape Town (we had no idea that they would... More

This is why I prefer boutique hotels - because even in the most luxurious of the big hotels - there isn't the staff/guest ratio to get service like this. The great service started weeks before we arrived with the ever so helpful Steffi getting us reservations at La Colombe - which can be booked up months in advance. Once we... More

Well located for visits to anywhere in the region. Nice rooms and very personal service. Guest are pampered from morning to evening and well prepared with maps and tips for day trips or hikes.
