Just got back from a week long business/vacation trip in South Africa, where I stayed at the Hippo in Cape Town. On the positives, it was a great room, in a great location, the hotel was trendy without overly doing it. We had one of the large 2 story rooms and enjoyed having the extra space. We also had a fantastic view of Table Mountain which was great to wake up to everyday and see. One of the odd things about the room was the bathroom, where the shower was directly in the upstairs bedroom, which made it difficult for someone to take a shower while someone was still waking up and the little glass partition did little to stop the water from getting all over the floor. But this was a minor gripe and the rest of the room was great. Also be aware that there was only a limited number of tv channels, which we found odd, however we didn't fly for more then a day to sit in a room and watch TV, so this really didn't matter to us. The staff was helpful and were able to setup several great tours for us and the overall cleanliness of the hotel was great. For the price it was fantastic and would recommend it to anyone looking for a great room at a reasonable price in Cape Town Central.
