“Perfect, perfect, perfect. You must stay here if you visit Cape Town!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2012

I don't even know where to start. The rooms were great, the food was great, and the view was wonderful. What really makes the place amazing, though, is the staff. They are all amazing. My highest praises go to Claire, who guided us to the best adventures in cape town and was always there to help. Steffi took wonderful care of us as well and went out of her way to make sure we enjoyed ourselves. Each and every morning, they would check with us and help us plan our day. We would have paid hundreds of dollars for such "guide" services, but they were offered for free with our room. They made reservations at the best restaurants, guided us on the best drives, and ensured that we were making the most of our time.

One small example that exemplifies the level of personal service was the drinks in our refrigerator in our room. They noticed that my wife always drank diet coke and after day 2, started making sure that we had diet cokes in our room (no charge), they also noted that I drank a lot of water and started leaving big bottles instead of small ones. This seems like a minor detail, but most places nickle and dime you about every little thing. 2Inn1 goes out of their way to make sure you are happy......

Room Tip: get one with a private balcony.

very warm place in kensington, nice pool, great breakfast, and lovely suite, with a complementary expresso coffee machine, and a local cellphone to use to call the taxi and guesthouse, nice idea,
stay!

All the superlatives in the other reviews are true. Why can't all guest houses be like this and why can't all people who work in them be as helpful and thoughtful as Steffi?
The perfect start to our south Africa trip, we only wished we could have stayed longer. Thank you so much to Steffi for everything, especially the table at the Test Kitchen - it was fantastic!!
We cannot imagine staying in another guesthouse in Capetown.

One of the most delightful hotels (more like a guest house or B & B) my husband and I have ever stayed at, and we travel a lot now that we are retired. It is located in a very safe residential area of Cape Town, a 10 or so minute walk from the center of Cape Town, and the minute we arrived, the manager and porter were outside, welcoming us; South Africans are such a delightful people, with ready smiles and handshakes. Our 5 days there were exquisite: elegant contemporary room and decor, super comfortable bed... and the breakfasts left us speechless. At the 2Inn1, there is no such thing as an automatic wake up call, the night manager personally, and softly, knocks on your door and waits for your response. Our reservations for tours and restaurants were confirmed without our having to request the service: every staff member seems to know what we wanted or needed before we even consciously thought about it.
When we came home, a lovely PERSONAL, not automated, thank you note was in our mail.
We can hardly wait to return to this beautiful country, exquisite city, and charming residence.

Room Tip: No recommendation, all rooms are nice,and quiet and comfortable.

We stayed here at the beginning and end of our SA holiday. Both times we were greeted and treated as friends and made to feel very welcome. The hotel is chic, modern, impeccably clean and nothing is too much trouble for the very dedicated staff who all work together seamlessly. We felt relaxed and safe and this contributed in no small way to the overall enjoyment of our holiday. Well done, we can't wait to go back.
