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.

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.
