“Honeymoon's beginning”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

My wife and I started our South African honeymoon in Cape Town at 2inn1 and it couldn't have started any better. The owner / staff everyone is so nice, everything is so clean and neat looking. From the breakfast served in the Inn to the staff's recommendation and aailability, we just had an awesome time there.

Best hotel we ever stayed! Not only because of the location in a nice neighbourhood with kloof street around the corner and camps bay, city bowl, waterkant, tafelberg, lions head all within 10 minutes. Not only because of the nice view from the pool on the tafelberg and lions head. But above all because of the service and kindness! We were very positvely surprised by things like: a local cell phone you take with you, a sandwich with salad we got from the night manager, a guard that escorts you to kloof street, restaurants and taxis that are booked within a second, et cetera et cetera.

Have a nice stay!

Very few things in life live up to the hype, this is our only boutique hotel experience that surpasses it. No "if's" no "buts ". Glam, chic, elegant with outstanding service. Outstanding. Klaus and Chris have created a truly fantastic place here with a an eye for detail and a magnificent front of house, the ever capable and wonderful Steffi. We feel compelled to write good things for good people but selfishly are reluctant to encourage others to book rooms here when we could NEED it! Wow.

We stayed here early February for seven nights. We selected this hotel because of it's great reviews and we were not disappointed.

We were in Cape Town to get married and the 2inn1 could not have done anymore to make our day so special. Steffi organised the hairdresser, make up and our fabulous dinner at Myogo which was a special way to finish the day. She organised our one day car hire so we could do the Cape Point drive and also organised our wine tour day trip. Each day they would suggest different restaurants such as Fork, Bacinis and Haiku all of which were amazing.

We would like to thank all the staff who made us feel so at home. It was our first trip to Cape Town and the 2inn1 but it certainly won't be our last.

Nothing much to add to everything that has been written already. We first stayed here in 2009 and have stayed every year since then. The standard since our first stay has remained consistent and keeps getting better. Without exception all the staff work so hard to make the stay so brilliant. What is fantastic is that all the staff have been there since our first visit - this is a great testimony in itself! This time we had a massage by the therapist and she was really good. Thank you all once again for making the end of our holiday a wonderful relaxing time. See you next year regards John & Christina

Room Tip: The rooms are very well appointed and the ones at the front of the hotel are particularly nice.

We really enjoyed this place, the Victorian house is very nice and the rooms are perfect decorated & comfortable. We loved the personal service off the staff, they really pampering there guest! This is the place to go if you like to discover Cape Town but also like to relax at the end of the day on a comfortable deckchair at the poolside, with a glass of wine & a book in the sun with a view on lionshead!!!
We hope we can return soon!

Stayed here for 4 nights (22nd-25th Feb) as part of a mixed business/pleasure trip around SA. We were lucky to get a room as we emailed just after a cancellation. I am so glad that we did! From the time we set foot in the hotel (welcomed by Claire) to the time we left (sent off with a wave goodbye by Klaus, Chris, Claire and Steffi), our every need was anticipated and looked after. Seriously - the crew here did not believe that their remit stopped at providing an incredible accommodation experience, they made sure that your stay in Cape Town was as enjoyable as possible too.

The other reviews say it all: the style and and decor is ultra-cool and modern but still comfortable. The attention to detail is amazing (one example: you are given a local mobile phone to use instead of running expensive calls on your own mobile and it is pre-programmed with their preferred taxi company number). The people are amazingly friendly and approachable. Location is great.

Just one final example from my visit: On my last day I had a business meeting to attend a little way out of the city. I was desperately trying to get some last minute updates loaded on my computer and was running out of time. I sent down an SOS to get breakfast sent to my room while at the same time having my shirt and suit ironed (they were looking tired after a week in a suitcase) all of which was cheerfully and efficiently dealt with. Stress averted, I went calmly out for a successful meeting. On my return everyone kindly asked how I had got on at the meeting (making me feel like a complete drama queen!).

Genuinely amazing place with customer service you won't believe.

Room Tip: Book well in advance. Bargains like this don't hang around for long and the good word is defini...
