If you want a hotel at a more reasonable cost outside the waterfront complex then this is ideal. Upper rooms have a view of Table Mountain and the staff were very helpful. It is opposite company gardens which has a nice tea room and near to many restaurants. We used Uber which was great to get about. Parking is in...

Good view and location but everything else was disappointing. The breakfast spread was minimal and the same on the 4 days that we were there. Breakfast was not satisfying. The electrical sockets in the room were faulty and the design of the sockets made it such that our adapters hang loosely. Looks dangerous. The hairdryer couldn't operate properly. I had...

We stayed for 5 nights and found the location in the centre of town was very good for getting around both on foot but we were central for getting to many of the tourist sites. The hotel is small, the rooms are large with lots of space, an average and simple bathroom and a comfortable bed. Walls are a little...

Cape Town does not lack accommodations and it can be difficult to choose. Especially if one likes to be central the choice is usually limited by ones wallet as it can get very quickly very expensive. What a pleasant surprise to discover one of the newer Boutique Hotels that opened its doors in the famous Queen Victoria Road. Situated opposite...

I am literally writing this review as I sit on my bed in Cape Town Hollow Boutique Hotel. My friend and I have been staying here for 4 days, and initially we loved it so much that we extended our stay and decided to make this our home while in Cape Town. Unfortunately, since last night, our room has started...

Good location near companys garden and museums and long street . Nice breakfast and friendly staff but not quite a boutique hotel . The small splash pool was a bit enclosed but would probably be welcome in the summer heat. Comfy spacious bedroom.

I stayed here for a business trip and found the rooms to be of incredible quality with the most amazing views. One has to pay a bit more for a mountain facing room, but even though I chose not to go for that option my room still had an incredible view. The hotel is perfectly situated close to all Cape...

We spent four nights here and have no complaints at all. A friendly, professional staff readily helped with getting taxis, giving directions, etc. Contrary to another review, there is secure, reasonably price parking just across the street. Not the hotel's and not free, but available. The rooms were spacious and well appointed. Ours on the sixth floor overlooked Table Mountain...

This hotel is situated in a fantastic location to explore Cape Town. Very quiet despite location. Staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Hop On/Hop Off bus outside your door, walking distance from Long Street bars and restraunts.

From walking in we received a warm welcome and attentive service, and this continued throughout our stay. Our room was a good size, comfortable and had a great view. The location couldn't be have been better for us and we enjoyed walking and exploring the area. Breakfast was great and we would certainly recommend this boutique hotel.
