Good hotel
I enjoyed my stay. The hotel is an easy walk to 2 hop on hop off bus stops and Greenmarket Square. There are lots of restaurants close by, including downstairs, next door and across the street. We loved eating at Knead and had breakfast there using vouchers provided by the Hippo hotel. I felt safer here than on Long Street, where we were followed by panhandlers each day. Kloof Street is just a few blocks away but felt much safer. The room was large and clean. We were in room 104, which faces the back of the hotel so I didn't hear much street noise.

Clean, convenient, great location,helpful staff.
The stay was good, the neighborhood was safe and like living in Greenwich Village in NYC. Comfortable walk to great restaurant s for breakfast to use your vouchers. Relaxing to walk around the neighborhood, access to public transportation to all the attractions and sightseeing highlights. .

Almost perfect
These hotel rooms are exactly as they appear on the website- a beautiful, industrial vibe. They are spacious, clean and comfortable. I must agree with others who complained about front-facing rooms being noisy- they sit right above some very popular restaurants and in the evenings. I paid a little more to get a back-facing room and it was pretty quiet. The hotel is perfectly located about a 10 minute walk from Greenmarket square and the hop-on, hop off bus. It is perfect because there are plenty of restaurants and shops very close to the hotel without being too much in the middle of everything. They neighborhood is pretty good but, as in other tourist areas of Cape Town, there are a lot of homeless people and expect them to approach you begging for money or food in the evenings. The hotel itself is very secure- they have to buzz you in the front entrance or you have to have a remote for the gated parking. The only reason that I say ALMOST perfect is because I saw a suspicious bug (I think it was a cockroach but it moved too quickly to tell) on the 3rd night of my stay. The place is not dirty and I was very surprised to see it. A staff member came and sprayed some repellent and I had no further issues.

My Hippo Hotel Stay
I had an awesome loft room with kitchen amenities. Staff was informative and helpful. Housekeeping was great. Restaurants and food stores are in close proximity. Wifi didn't work until my last night. Molding around bathtub had dry rot. It should have been fixed.
