We spent four nights at 2Inn1 Kensington in late October. The B&B was lovely. Room and common area beautiful decorated but the best part was the staff. Very attentive with great suggestions for things to do and places to eat. They just made you feel welcome. They thought of everything to make our vacation one to remember. The telephone was...

None of the five star reviews here are an overstatement. From start to finish, Klaus, Claire, steffi and the team did everything possible to make sure that our first visit was truly memorable. We came with some ideas as to what we might do in Cape Town, but upon arrival, the team put together an itinerary for us with pain...

We were so glad we chose to spend our first three nights in South Africa at this lovely hotel. We were made to feel very welcome and immediately started to feel comfortable and relaxed easily into our holiday. Everyone was very friendly and so helpful. We had planned our own itinerary but after a lot of help from Steffi we...

Had a great few days in Cape Town staying at the 2inn1 guest house. We were given a great welcome upon arrival. Providing us with a local mobile phone and SIM card for the duration of our stay was a great idea. We also loved the 'sundowner' happy hour (actually 2 hours) every evening. The breakfast was superb too. Would...

I don't know what more to say because all of the reviews you've likely already read here are spot-on! A quiet oasis with staff that go above and beyond for anything you need. Location is slightly removed from the main attractions, but the quiet neighborhood environment more than makes up for it, and Uber rides to wherever you need to...

2inn1Kensington is for sure one of the best (if not the best) small luxury B&B hotels of the world. Very warm welcome. Wonderfully decorated and very clean room. Excellent breakfast ... and - never seen before - a very patient, friendly and helpful support by Steffi. Thank you!! We come back!! The only problem of this hotel: Due to its...

We spent 5 days of our honey moon there and couldn't be more satisfied. The hotel is great, bedrooms are comfortable and the staff is lovely. Complimentary drinks at the Jacuzzi from 6pm to 8pm makes the end of the day much more pleasant. Special thanks to Claire and Kenneth who worked hard to make our stay as excellent as...

We stayed here for 5 nights for our holiday in Cape Town. This is a wonderful place to stay. Forget your 5 star hotels, this place beats them all on the accomodation, food and especially their personal service. They booked resturants for us to eat in, booked our flights, arranged taxis. Stephi and Claire made us feel very welcome. We...
