Beautiful boutique hotel, the room was fantastic as was all the staff. Breakfast was lovely also. It has a bunch of great restaurants right on their doorstep and is close to shopping in the city, and car hire places.
We stayed with two small children in the luxury suite and enjoyed every minute of it. This is a very modern hotel, with a well-equipped kitchen for self-catering purposes, which includes a washing machine and tumble drier. Some staff were more friendly than others. I would advise requesting for a room with a view when checking in, something that I will do on my next stay at the hotel.
Nestled almost invisible from sight in the vibrant and eclectic area of Kloof Street, is a laid back oasis of calm and comfort called The Hippo.
Just like the hippo it remains almost hidden from sight, but in reality it is very large when you view the full aspects of this unique little hotel. It offers easy access to the many and varied vibrant Restaurants and Bars of Kloof and Long Street which is easily accessible for any Hippo resident prepared to leave the mud pool of comfort to wallow in the culture of the local splendour of the melting pot outside.
No car is required, for the able you can traverse some of the best parts of Cape Town's dining and social expiriences on foot, just like the hippo, and a short taxi ride can take you to some of Cape Towns most spectacular expeiriences, or the My Citi bus for those more challanged by the financial mud of life.
A jaw dropping hotel, in the middle of the main watering hole in Cape Town, simply irresistable.
