I have to say, I was a bit disappointed. The Hotel is a nice average Hotel in the heart of Cape Town and near to Long Street, the Government Gardens and the Centre of Town can be reached by foot. But be warned it is extremely noisy, so you will not be able to sleep without earplugs. The staff was...

Stayed here for 4 nights in April 2017. Great location. Literally round the corner from long street where there are loads of bars and restaurants to chose from! All the city attractions are so easily accessible and the staff are all so friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend!

This was my second stay at the Cape Town Hollow boutique hotel located in Queen Victoria Street in the city. Location cannot be beaten, next to the peaceful city gardens, 5 minutes from vibey Longkloof Street and Long Street, with their amazing array of restaurants, shops and drinking holes. Staff at The Hollow were quietly discreet, efficient and friendly. Mention...

Room 305 is very bright and pleasant with a good view of table mountain. Very large safe, comfortable queen bed, full length mirror, no bath but large shower but the sink is quite small. Air conditioning. Standard toiletries. Clothes seem to dry mostly overnight. There is a desk and wardrobe and tea & coffee making facilities. The porter even brought...

Stephanie at reception was great with reservations for transportation & day trips/tours and providing excellent restaurant suggestions! Her tips made my stay much more memorable. Street side rooms are the best with table mountain view, without being noisy. Centrally located overlooking the company gardens, 2 streets away from long street with its restaurants and bars, close to hop on/hop off...

My husband and I stayed here recently for four nights as part of a tour. No complaints whatsoever! We had a Table Mountain View room, absolutely stunning! The location is fabulous! We had many enjoyable walks in the gardens opposite. We walked to the V and A several times but it is quite far, I think maybe a mile and...

We stayed for ten days in February 2017 and found the hotel to be very good, lovely comfortable beds and linen. The breakfast was excellent service a bit slow but all staff had a smile. The hotel arranged trips and taxis with great efficiency. A great situation opposite the gardens and very central. I would highly recommend this hotel

A self confessed hotel geek, I was inquisitive to experience the Cape Hollow Boutique. From the get go I knew it was the right decision, I loved that the hotel offered a personalized reservation experience and felt very comfortable dealing with Jessica and trusted the information was accurate. Upon my arrival I was met by the hotel driver Aslem who...

We staying at Cape Town Hollow for a few nights in February 2017. We were early to check in but that wasn't a problem as straight away we were asked if we wanted to leave our luggage in a safe place until the room was ready so that we could either go and explore or go and have a drink,...
