My wife and I stayed at 2Inn1 for 8 days, having chosen it after all of the great reviews on TripAdvisor. It surpassed our expectations. From the moment we walked in, Steffi and Claire helped create a personalized trip for us, from winery and Cape Peninsula tours to dinner reservations every night. It was the small touches, such as a cell phone to use while we were there, in case we needed to get hold of anyone or a taxi, to the full complimentary breakfasts, as well as fresh bottles of water every night that really made the experience. Everyone, including Mr. Eric and Kenneth in the evenings, as well as the kitchen and grounds staff always asked how we were doing and ensured that we had what we needed. Steffi and Claire - thank you for all of your detailed help and local recommendations! This is truly an outstanding hotel - do not miss your chance to stay here while in Cape Town!

Room Tip: The upstairs room with the deck was great for privacy and also had a wonderful view of Table Mountai...

2Inn1 is already at the point where all superlatives have been exhausted. You really just need to experience it to understand what everyone's going on about. That's twice I've been to Capetown; first time at 2Inn1. 10 days of utter perfection. People always asked if I was going to SA to visit friends. My answer was always "no....just going on holiday." Next time my answer will be "yes".

My boyfriend, his mother and I were doing a trip around the world and stayed at 2 inn 1 during our stay in capetown. The moment we arrived we realized this place was different than any other bed and breakfast. They immediately told us the weather was perfect for table mountain and they had checked the weather during our stay and it was supposed to rain every other day. They ordered our tickets online and gave us a map to the cable car. Every night they made excellent dinner reservations for us and helped make plans during the day. We ended up having a cold and staying in a night or two and they brought tea and snacks to our room. We loved the happy hour everyday and enjoyed chatting with the other guests.
My boyfriends mother headed home while we continued our journey. We went to wine country and hermanus and then back to capetown. We decided to stay at 2 inn 1 again. They had helped make dinner reservations for my birthday in franschoek and sent me an email wishing me a happy birthday on my birthday. When we arrived back at 2 inn 1 they had a half bottle of champagne and a coupon for a massage for my birthday! I was so surprised and excited! The massage was wonderful!
The staff was amazing. They always had a smile on their face and genuinely liked helping us. I loved that they were perfectionists and always adjusting pillows or plates that weren't in order. They really care about presentation.
They also gave us a cell phone to use during our stay. This was so helpful when we needed to call a taxi or call and get directions. Such a great touch!
Lastly, the breakfast was to die for!!! They had a special breakfast English muffin with a poached egg avocado bacon and balsamic that I ordered everyday as well as enjoyed the buffet!
This place is a gem! More bed and breakfasts need to learn from them- they've got it right!!

Room Tip: The big room has a great kitchenette! The smaller rooms are regular bed and bathroom. We stayed in b...

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!

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.
