What a lovely olace to have a stay. It has 4/5 restaurants literally on it's doorstep, Mexican, Japanese, Pizzeria, mainstream and Ricks American cafe with Moroccan food as well.
The rooms are light, large are beautifully appointed.You have access to your own in room PC as well as a satellite TV and music centre.
You are 30 mins from the airport, 10 mins by car from Table Mountain, and a 35 minute walk to the V and A Waterfront with all it's shpos and attractions.Long Street with it's bars and eatiers is only a 10 minute stroll away.
We found the staff to be friendly, Irish charm, and full of information on Cape Towns attractions.
Oh there is very secure under cover car parking.
We enjoyed our visit to the hotel and would certainly rebook when next in Cape Town

Room Tip: all the rooms are great!

We stayed at hippo for a couple days and had a great stay! staff is very nice and helpful!
Rooms and spacious and clean! Location was very good, you can easily walk into the city bowl but there are also a few nice bars, restaurants and breakfast spots around the corner.
Would def go back!

Room Tip: Maybe a room at the end of the hallway. Our was close to reception and a little noisy.

I stayed at the hippo while on a business trip. The room was very modern and spacious with the largest most comfortable bed I have ever slept in. It's located close to plenty of bars and restaurants. The room had wifi and tea making facilities. It was extremely clean and well kept. The room was turned down every day and tided up.

My only complaint was that the wardrobe doors are sliding and extremely heavy and hard to push and pull. My colleagues also staying at the hippo were disturbed every night by the noise of what they thought was either the bins being collected right outside their windows or the sound of a large gate opening.

Nice spacious rooms. The hotel is in a busy part of the city so when the bars close late at night it can get quite noisy. Everything was very clean. There lots of shops and restaurants nearby. Free wifi was a plus. I loved the minimalist decor of the rooms which were simple yet comfortable.
