The hotel is located on kloof street, so you have a good choice for food/drinks close by. But also the noice at night.. The room was really big (even a tiny kitchen), comfortable and clean. We stayed for three nights and it was great. We booked with breakfast, but you only get coupons worth 90Rand and have to go to...

Just spent 4 nights at The Hippo which did not disappoint. A really convenient location just off Long / Kloof and within walking distance to the hub and buzz of this lively area full of bars, restaurants and one off small shops. We had a side facing room which was spacious, clean and quiet with a very comfortable king sized...

If you like the Vibe, it's a great place to stay. Unfortunately forget about sleeping in. The kitchen staff of the restaurant downstairs will wake you up at 6h45 with their loud chattering which goes on for at least 2 hours. Very disappointing after a late night out. The fridge is very limited and only caters for 1 person. Don't...

The hotel is on a great location for bars & restaurants & given we arrived on a Saturday Evening the ample off-road parking was a bonus. Our room was newly refurbished, very quiet & the new bathroom was truly stunning. We enjoyed our one night stay & would definitely return. Thank you all.
