My husband and I stayed here on New Years Eve and through the first few days of January. This is a very cute hotel and has an excellent value! The location is great! It is across the street from the park, walking distance to Kloof Street with lots of restaurants and shops and walking distance to Long Street where the Red bus tour ticket office is. There is also a red bus stop right outside the hotel which you can catch and then hop on and off at other stops to switch lines. We were also close to the Mount Nelson Hotel where we walked to for High Tea (also highly recommend!) Our room itself was good. The bedroom could use some upgrades but it had everything we needed and had a fantastic view outside the beautiful old windows. The bathroom was quite small and the water temperature in the shower was quite tricky. The service was excellent! We asked them if there was an atm in the hotel and there was not. We had to walk one block to the nearest ATM but they would not let us go alone for safety as tourists are targets for theft. They sent an attendant and the hotel Chef with us to walk to the ATM and back. It really made us feel safe and we appreciated the gesture. If you feel you need extra security, just ask the front desk and they will send someone with you to the ATM. Also, we rented a car on our last day for the next part of the trip, and there is a public parking garage across the street that you can use to safely park your car overnight. Overall this isn't the fanciest place, but it is an excellent value for your money and excellent location!

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.

Pros- Big thank you to Chantel, Carlos and Ernest as they were very friendly and helpful throughout our time spent. The entire staff was Ahh-mazing staff! Beautiful views from my fifth floor stay! Clean double bed rooms!!!!! The breakfast and dinner was great! We both received complementary wine for both our birthday’s. My friends and I spent 5 nights at this hotel and it was a perfect location to explore this beautiful city. Cons- The load shading (Hopefully that was spelled correctly) is when the government cuts off the electricity throughout the town; either twice a day and it can last up too 2hours! I remember the first time it happened we didn’t have a flashlight in our room. But by the second night we were prepared! Thanks again, Friends from NY & Jamaica

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.
