We prefer sleeping on soft pillows and would have rated Hippo excellent on every aspect. I think all hotels should provide one hard and one soft pillow.
The hotel reception staff were very friendly, helpful and informative; and the location is excellent.
One night receptionist was in toilet and we couldn't get in! It's a problem. General access to hotel a little sketchy and no guarding.
Different breakfast options.
Airy, cool hotel. Good location. Choice of breakfast at different eateries Best of all were the lovely, lovely staff and receptionists. They could not have been more helpful
Private parking, super friendly staff, downtown, breakfast is outside to 5 or 6 different coffeehouses (included in the room's price), the ones we tried (recommended from the staff) were really good and close from the hotel
Having to ring the bell every time you parked the car or entered the hotel
I had to ask to change rooms because of a bad sewerage smell. I thought the staff would have offered to move me or provide a discount
Staff service & location
Didn't get a good internet connection in my room this time but could get it in other locations so not a major problem.
Each time I stay everything is as it was the time before. Good service and friendly without any fuss.
Shower has no pressure. King bed too short, feet hanging over. Was advertised as extra length but was much shorter that my king bed at home. We ordered room service from one of the restaurants - Cactus Jack - and it took 1 and a half hours before we received it.
Location spot on. The place was clean & comfortable. Staff very friendly and helpful. Free parking.
The mosquitos. I obviously dont carry repellent with me. Some hotels do provide repellent if they experience high amounts of mozzies. I barely slept as I was being eaten alive. Also the air conditioning is not powerful enough for such a large room.
The room was contemporary and fully equipped. excellent location.
Generally very good stay and staff helpful and friendly. Only mix up was with receptionist giving our NYE taxi away to someone else making us late for dinner but otherwise enjoyed our stay.
In a quiet street close to the action with a number of good restaurants and bars nearby. Convenient for Camps Bay and Table Mountain too.
The showers need more pressure
Very noisy rooms if you are unlucky to get rooms on the floor right next to the entrance
Tv, AC and lights were turned on when we arrived
All was excellent. I would go to this hotel again
Sasha, the hotel manager/ess makes this place an absolute pleasure to stay. From restaurant reconmendations to Places of interest. Her bubbly personality and smile everydat made my day. She is a huge asset to the hotel. Good hotel, clean facilities and great rooms. Close to everything!!
rooms at front noisy from bars/restaurants on street Our room at back noisy from row of air conditioning units outside our window buzzing loudly all night
Friendly staff Good position for easy access to restaurants, etc Lovely breakfasts at choice of 5 nearby cafes
a little to loud....outside....
Nices area with a lot of restaurants. Good alternative waterfront
Frequently found it difficult to catch a cab, thought this would be easier. And the hotel had a cab service who I paid and whom did not have change, and I asked for change--he said he would give to reception and he did not do this. This was disappointing. At times it was hard to catch a cab, staff wasn't good at giving directions or recommending restaurants. Wifi was slow or difficult to connect to at times. Bathroom was cramped and small, no iron in the room which was a bit inconvenient
I though the room size was great, bed was comfortable and kitchen space was nice. Staff was also helpful in so many things (minus directions). It was close to a nice spa and places to go out.
A bit noisy but logical due to the location.
There wasn't anything. I even booked for an extra night later on in my travels.
This is a hip place in a hip location. Felt very safe as a solo traveller . Great food choices right next door
No fuss but attentive staff. Quiet room at the back with plenty of space.
No complaints at all
A good quality room and pleasant staff.
room did not lock from inside
central location, on-site parking
Everything is great. Spacious and modern rooms, great location, friendly staff. Thumbs up!
Breakfast experience was poor. Service bad, burnt toast..is this because we were from the hotel and not a restaurant walk in? Also cleanliness. Bathroom could use some upkeeping and furniture needs to be cleaned
The wifi cut out a couple times, however the staff were right on the case and fixed the problem very quickly. Excellent service!
The staff were insanely accommodating and courteous, and so were the wait staff from the restaurants below! The rooms are spacious, fully equipped with toiletries, linens and even dinnerware for the kitchenette (including a coffee press and real coffee!) The beds are wonderful with plenty of pillows. The wall outlets even have adapters for international plugs- a small detail that makes a huge difference! The restaurants below offer room service and the meals from each are delicious and generous with friendly wait staff.
