Happy Hippo Boutique hotel.
Great find! We left booking to the last moment, not a smart move during South African peak holiday period. The location is great, in the city bowl, close enough to the Cape Town Waterfront, cable car to Table Mountain and to the main exit routes from the city. Many restaurants and bars in the area which still has the old Cape Town character and charm, unlike the newer, more glitzy but soulless tourist areas. It doesn't really matter that it is not right at the sea as Cape Town requires and deserves travelling around quite a bit. Room was very large with enough space for 2 extra beds and also includes a small "kitchenette" with microwave if you decide to eat in. The hotel looks quite new and recently decorated. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The hotel has a quiet calm atmosphere and is has been decorated in a modern and charming fashion. There is also ample safe parking. Great value for money. I would readily recommend this hotel. We stayed there for 2 days before travelling to the nearby wine farms for a few nights. We enjoyed the Hippo Boutique Hotel so much that we returned there after our wine-lands trip. Definitely worth considering for a Cape Town stay.
