Hippo Boutique Hotel, Cape Town
Excellent4.0 / 5
Hippo was a great hub for our Cape Town visit. The room was clean and comfortable, and we didn't deal with any of the street noise other guests mentioned. Staff was friendly and helpful. The location is perfect and pretty central to everything - and walking distance from a lot of great spots!

The location of this small boutique hotel is a great one if you like to be in the city center. Happening street with nice restaurants and attractions in walking distance. Hotel provided breakfast vouchers valid at three nearby restaurants. We loved our room, very spacious, with a couch, coffee table, desk and kitchenette. My only two issues: spotty cleaning service and when the one person behind the reception desk needs to vacate that spot for anywhere from 5-10 minutes, at least leave a note for guests on the desk to say "will be right back?" One night we rang the buzzer for the hotel door several times with no response. We were able to enter the hotel lobby via the bar/restaurant next door. Once at the reception desk and ringing the bell for service, still no one showed up (we needed our room key). An employee at restaurant tried to help, as did another hotel guest who came out of his room. Finally the person on duty returned. He apologized and he was maybe absent for about 15 minutes, but it was our first night there and caused us some anxiety as we were very tired and saw ourselves sleeping on the hotel lobby furniture! That said, everything else was fine and we enjoyed the rest of our stay (total of four nights).

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.
