This hotel is located in the city center and is easily reached from any part of the city. They have tie up for breakfast with three restaurants near by and give you a hundred Rand coupon for breakfast.
The rooms are spacious and the bath room had a shower and tub. The towels were clean. Overall value for money.

The hotel room was exactly as described on the site. We had a ton of space and everything was very clean. The bed was very comfortable and the noise level was low most of the time. We had a view of Table Mountain which was a nice surprise. The staff was very friendly and helpful. When we made a request if was fulfilled in a timely manner. The helped us book all of our excursions and made great recommendations for places to go and see. The location is amazing. There are shops and restaurants steps away from the hotel door. I also felt very safe. We would for sure stay there again.

Located on Park Road and just a stones throw away from Long Street where all the pubs and food establishments etc are, it was situated in a great location. It was fairly quiet at night, even though our room was above Jerry's (who provide a free breakfast if your stay includes it). The reception was helpful booking and checking trips, arranging taxis etc. So overall can't complain.

Stayed at Hippo for 5 days in early December. The rooms are vey spacious, bed is comfortable, location is fantastic if you want to be close to cape town's downtown area. It is very close to a number of bars/ restaurants, so it's a lively area. As a result, some of the front facing rooms can get a bit noisy at night. For the breakfast, you get a generous voucher to take to a number of cafes. We went to Knead, and found it excellent. The hotel also hhs some limited parking spots, which are free. If I returned to Cape Town, would definitely stay at Hippo again.

On behalf of Hippo Boutique Hotel, I would like to humbly apologize for the experience with regards to the noise from the restaurants. We have double glazed all the windows and doors and have started installing carpets with rubber which absorbs the sounds.

We have another level of parking which many people are not aware of. We would like to assure you that we at Hippo Boutique Hotel pride ourselves in delivering the best guest service and strive to get the basics right consistently.

Thanks for all your feedback as it assists us to give the best service possible.
We look forward to welcoming you back to Hippo Hotel in the near future.

Kind Regards

We stayed there for a few nights.
Location: many very lively bars and restaurants within the block (this is on the nicer part of the town, so you will feel OK to walk around with north American standards)
Easy access to downtown. ~20 minutes cab ride to airport (no traffic)
Clean and very spacious rooms with kitchenette
Breakfast: you get daily vouchours for a couple of restaurants in the vicinity. The Knead (20 m away from hotel) was amzing - vouchers is for 100 ZAR and covers a breakfast (omelet is ~ZAR 80 and coffee ZAR 20)
Two large grocery stores (SPAR and WholeWorth) within 100 m.
