We stayed at the Capetown Hollow for three nights with our family in late December 2019.
The staff were most welcoming and pleasant. The rooms were a good size, with very comfortable beds and housekeeping of a good standard. It was particularly good to have a Nespresso machine in the room. Unfortunately we did not have a view from the room, being neither on the Company Gardens side, nor the mountain side and if I had had a choice, I would have preferred a better view, rather looking out over the back of nearby buildings.
The bathroom was adequate, if rather small.
Breakfast was plentiful and varied.
There was a small swimming pool rarely used, but with only two sunbeds and some upright rattan seating.
As a moderately priced hotel, I would be happy to recommend this place to tourists, in terms of value for money, staffing and accessibility to Kloof Street and good local restaurants and bars.

This hotel is well located at the beginning of Victoria Street with easy access to all shops and facilities. The rooms are airy and large but the bathrooms are incredibly small. Very disappointing. The breakfast spread is adequate. The bar and restaurant were as can be expected. There is no parking at the hotel and you need to park at the neighbouring hotel at extra cost. For some inexplicable reason the beds are very short, and tall people will have their feet sticking out of them. Don't forget to carry your electrical adaptor, since the rooms don't have usb charging points or international plug points. That said the staff are helpful and friendly.

we stayed here for 10 nights from new years eve .The staff are really helpful (esp on reception) we had a room on the 8th floor with a great view of table mountain....when wind blows at night it sounds terrible because of the ill fitting windows.
The bed is really small compared to most hotels and the bathroom is tiny.
when the electric goes and cant use the lift is a problem when oap!
The cooked breakfast was never hot.
We ate there for dinner a couple of times and was lovely.
It was a nice place in a good spot.

We loved our 3 night stay in Cape Town Hollow. We stayed in a mountain view room which was very comfortable. There is a nice restaurant in the hotel, where we enjoyed excellent breakfasts and an evening meal (delicious sweet potato soup). The hotel is next to Company Gardens, which are well worth a visit, and very convenient for museums. They provide a transfer service to and from the V&A waterfront several times a day. Altogether a very enjoyable stay.

We have to compliment the excellent service of the front desk staff. She was on duty from Christmas eve to boxing day and we experienced exceptionally good hospitality from her. Bed is a bit small. Wifi is unstable. Provides free scheduled shuttle to & from V&A waterfront.

My friend and I stayed here on a 3 night visit to Cape Town. Overall, we had a fairly decent stay. All the staff were helpful, friendly and courteous, especially the women that worked in the breakfast room. The included breakfast was tasty and plentiful with good coffee. Our mountain facing room had a beautiful view of Lion's Head and Table Mountain National Park and it was very clean. The beds were comfortable and had nice linens. However, there were a few issues that made me only able to leave a 3 star review. Their website indicates they offer a 24 hour shuttle service and complimentary transfer to the V&A waterfront. When we asked about these services, they said it was not available. This was one of the reasons we wanted to stay at this hotel. The mountain facing room was noisy late at night making it difficult to sleep. You could hear people in the street and in the park across the street. WiFi connections were very spotty. and one day the WiFi was down all evening. Because of these reasons, I would not stay again when visiting Cape Town as I feel there are better options out there.

very convenient location, super-friendly staff, very clean, great AC, great breakfasts. Be sure to go across the street and walk through the Company Gardens and enjoy some green space. They have a shuttle to V&A but it's every 2 hrs so we usually took an Uber as more convenient (very easy to get and well priced).

We arrived with high hopes having had a lovely stay at their sister hotel in Knysna but were sorely disappointed. I was with a small group tour by Cox & Kings. We arrived mid afternoon and they were not ready for us; took ages to check in. The room (605) was lovely though very noisy because the hotel is on a busy road but there are great views over the city and Table Mountain but the staff leave a whole lot to be desired. They are surly, inefficient and (for the first time anywhere in South Africa) and just unfriendly. Wholly unprofessional in fact.
Despite the room information book saying room service was available from 0600 to midnight, it was impossible to get a drink in the evening as the restaurant and bar closed at 8.30!
The “swimming pool “ is about the size of a footbath surrounded by a small patch of artificial grass two sun beds and a few chairs. Again no service or towels
Definitely not to be recommended and does not deserve to be in the same group as Knysna Hollow

The hotel was very near long street and since the pandemic we felt a little uneasy in this area ( it’s an are we have visited previously) .
The staff were very friendly , the room was comfortable with lovely linen.
The bathroom was small.
Breakfast was not a good experience on both days , no cups for coffee snd constantly running out of milk and water for the coffee machine. I wasn’t impressed with food and would rather have paid less for room only !
Not sure it’s a hotel I’d recommend.

The location is great as you’re right by the Gardens, museums and a stop for the hop on hop off bus tour. The are lots of restaurants and cheap cafes in the road next to this hotel also which is very convenient.
The staff were lovely, the room was spacious and the bed was very comfy.
The breakfast was also very tasty and had a good amount of choice. A really enjoyable stay.
If I had one complaint it would be that the pool is very underwhelming size wise.

If you have a car , you can reach several wineries - I recommend Fairview in Paarl and Moreson in Franschhoek. You can check directly with them about tours in their winery . They are about 1 to 11/2 hrs away from CT. Closer if you are based in Stellenboch. Both have restaurants on site.

Hello everybody, there is a parking lot near the hotel? If yes, is it close and easy to find? thanks a lot

They do not have their own on-site parking but guests are able to park at their neighbor across the road (approx. 50m) for a cost for about ZAR55 per night - very easy to find It works like a shopping mall where you take a ticket at the boom and then pay afterwards. It is on a first come first served basis but there are over 100 available bays there so they should not have a problem The name of the building is 15 On Orange (it is part of the African Pride Hotel) They also have a stop-and-go at the front of the hotel if guests are unsure of where the building is to park and want to quickly drop off their luggage
