“Again a wonderfull time!!”
Reviewed December 4, 2012 via mobile

We stayed for the fourth time in 2inn1 Kensington! This says already enough, I think... This B&B is an absolute must-stay in Cape Town at a top location to explore the city and the surroundings of Cape Town.

Actually, it is much more than a B&B... It is aplace where you feel immediatelly at home bacause of the warm welcome of Klaus, Kris, Stephi, Claire and the rest of the team! They give you suggestions for visits, arrange taxis and restaurants and makes that your holiday is an unforgettable experience!

Rooms are spacious, clean and nicely decorated! The sun terrace and pool offers the opportunity to enjoy the sun and the daily apero happy hour. Breakfast gives you everything you want: croissants, eggs, fresh fruits, ... Staff is extremely friendly and helpfull!

Stated differently; there is no other place we would like to stay in Cape Town! We hope to go back as soon as possible!

Stayed November 2012, traveled as a couple

We stayed for three nights at 2inn1. We were greeted warmly on arrival. Stephanie arranged every thing for us; from giving us a map and a mobile phone to use, to recommendation of places to go sight seeing. Although our room was beautifully renovated, we were slightly disappointed we had no view of the garden nor the Table Mountain. The attention to details in the room was amazing. Breakfast was more than just buffet style, we could order our favorite pan cake and omelettes. The staff and the owner were very friendly and treated us like family members. They took pride to look after us and to make sure that we were comfortable. Thumbs up!

Room Tip: Request the room with Table Mountain view, its worthwhile

We stayed for 5 nights and from the minute we arrived to the minute we left (with hugs and a slight tear in the eye) we were spoilt. Positioned in a leafy, quiet suburb a short taxi drive from town and Camps Bay the hotel is stylish; comfortable but the thing that sets it apart are the lovely people who run it. Nothing was too much trouble; taxis were ordered; restaurants booked; recommendations spot on. Great breakfasts and poolside food available during the day - it really couldn't have been more perfect...thank you so much - we will be back. I can't imagine staying anywhere else in Cape Town.

Room Tip: There aren't any bad rooms!

We spent 3 nights at 2inn1 was among our lifetime best B&B experiences. The neighborhood is safe, quiet, well located for access to restaurants and Table Mtn. The staff does a phenomenal job of attending to every detail of your stay (transport, tickets for the funicular, exceptional private touring of the Cape) even to the detail of a loaner cell phone with preprogrammed #. The breakfast is superlative and the setting is lovely.

My husband and I just returned from staying 5 nights at the 2inn1 for our honeymoon and words cannot describe how amazing the place and the people who work there are. Because we had a long wish list of things to do in such a short amount of time, Steffi and Claire helped us with suggestions, planning and recommendations. Every suggestion they made was fabulous! We were able to see and do everything we wanted.

The location of the hotel was practically at the base of Table Mountain with beautiful views. It was also 10 minutes away from everything, including the waterfront. The breakfast was excellent every morning and the happy hours were perfect returning from a long day of exploring. The hotel and rooms are so beautifully decorated and stylish that I spent most of my shopping time getting the same art and crafts they had everywhere in the rooms.

I cannot stress how welcoming everyone was to us. The overall hotel and service stresses the little things that other hotels and customer service always seem to gloss over. From the management team to the night staff, they were all so genuinely friendly. I cannot wait to return to Cape Town and to 2inn1 and bring my family and friends to experience the top notch hotel!

Thank you for an amazing time at your hotel and the great last days of our honeymoon!

One just needs to experience the lovely architecture, family like atmosphere, top guest service of this unique habitat in the middle of one of the nicest places on earth. Any more words would be too much. So just experience the one and only 2inn1 hospitality.

From the moment we were greeted at the door to the time we were waved goodbye by all of the team the service was nothing less than remarkable. On occasions you wonder whether to believe the reviews posted onTrip Advisor, for the 2inn1 they are all true. Arriving a little tired from an overnight flight from the UK Steffi and the team had our 5 days in Cape Town sorted, keeping us on track so all we needed to do was relax and enjoy. The hotel had a family feel, enjoying a drink with other guests as the sun sets behind the mountain and the staff ensuring you have everything you need. A fantastic experience, we will be back.
P.S. Goodbye Claire, we did not get chance to see you before we left. Max & Dave
