The Best Home Away From Home!!
The Hippo Boutique Hotel is my new found home in Cape Town. It was centrally located to everything Cape Town had to offer. The recommended list of restaurants for food choices was A+. Jerry's Burgers right downstairs have great starters and main courses. I sampled various items from the menu and all were of large portions (and I got the small and it was too much) and well seasoned. On the other side, you'll find Fat Cactus were Brett (one of the managers) introduced us to the Iceberg. The Iceberg is beer with frozen margarita on top. WOW!!! Across the street, Rick's Americana Cafe where I tried the Ostrich Burger (Excellent). Around the corner, Kauai, Knead, grocery store, ATM, and another string of eateries. Hippo Boutique also offers free parking. Everyone is extreamly polite, helpful, courteous, outgoing, and patient.

Hippo Boutique Hotel in The Gardens
Charming little hotel tucked away in the Gardens neighborhood of Cape Town. Very conveniently located near Long Street, The Parliament, and other sights in historic Cape Town. The hotel entrance is tucked between two restaurants and is a little difficult to find especially at night. The rooms are nice and big, wifi works and staff is responsive. Will stay here again.

Wonderful Stay at Hippo Hotel
I had the pleasure of staying at various hotels while I was visiting Cape Town. I can say that the Hippo Hotel was one of the best hotels I choose. The location and the area was great and you have such a close view of the mountains when walking down the street from the hotel. I was in room 109 which was very spacious and very relaxing. I cannot find anything negative about Hippo Hotel. The staff was very nice and was always helpful when I needed them. I'm really happy with my stay and I'm glad that I choose this hotel to stay in for my last ten days spent in Cape Town. I love the fact that they have breakfast vouchers which you can use at choice of five different restaurants within walking distance in the area. I choose to eat at Knead Restaurant which was a very lovely place and the staff there was also lovely as well. I had the chance to bond with some of them by the end of my stay. When I come to Cape Town again; I hope I will have the opportunity to stay at the Hippo Hotel really enjoyed my stay there.

Hippo Boutique May 1 and May 7
We only stayed one night before and after our Garden Route Tour, but the hotel was very comfortable and well designed. It was close to restaurants and a 15 min taxi ride to Table Mountain. The hotel staff was very nice and called for our taxi ride and even stores your luggage after you check out if you want to venture around the neighborhood before your shuttle back to the airport. The restaurants downstairs can be a bit noisy at night but our rooms were quiet. We stayed in 101 on our first night and 109 on our return stay.
