Description

Situated in the hub of Cape Town, Hippo is an exclusive Boutique Hotel that offers you the convenience of a central location, combined with the seamless service of superior accommodation.

Your room has everything you may need to remain luxuriously self-contained; from kitchen units equipped with a microwave, fridge and a filter coffee plunger to state-of-the-art internet technology and home entertainment centre. Your room also comes equipped with ADSL and wireless connection giving you 24 hour complimentary high-speed internet access.

Step out of our doors and you'll find yourself in the middle of Cape Town's famed café culture or venture a little further to explore the Cape's most famous landmarks such as Table Mountain and the V&A Waterfront.

There's no need to venture far for world-class cuisine - breakfast, lunch or dinner. Downstairs from Hippo, you'll find three exceptional offerings; Mano A Mano specialises in fresh, modern food, prepare for a fiesta at the Fat Cactus with mouth-watering Mexican dishes and drinks or indulge your cravings for authentic Thai food at Simply Asia.

Only unstinting quality and attention to detail can shift a place from being merely convenient to seriously comfortable.

Details like fine cotton linen, king-size beds, leather couches, cherry wood floors and interior design that lets you breathe a little deeper.

Relax at our plunge pool or step out of our doors and you'll find yourself in the middle of the Cape's famed café culture. And if you care to journey a little further, you'll discover that Hippo is a stone's throw away from many of the Cape's most famous landmarks.

Conference Venues: Meeting room accommodating up to 10 people.

Our stay at the hotel was enjoyable. We experienced good service from the staff, breakfasts at Knead and Mano Oh Mano were very good. All in all, a pleasant experience.

01 July 2014

Wow what a stunning hotel, modern rooms with every perfect detail till by the chandelier. The service is exceptional, really make you feel welcome. The rooms have everything you need and more. The restaurants nearby makes your stay even easier, they deliver to your room. Definitely a great hotel to stay, thank you for the amazing accommodation. We will be back one day.

21 November 2013

Lovely friendly reception staff, we got upgraded to a suite, that was quiet, well appointed and overall a very pleasant stay.

08 February 2011

The first thing that strikes you about the Hippo is its fabulous location, right in the heart of the coolest parts of Cape Town and with views of Table Mountain. The second that hits you is the funky design and décor – it’s an establishment that can truly call itself boutique and a fantastic experience. We’ll be back whenever we’re in Cape Town!
