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 caf 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 caf 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.
"A Great Welcoming Stay"

"With its location close to Kloof street and surrounded by hipster restaurants, we were concerned with potential noise levels. But, as promised by the staff, our executive room was surprisingly quiet - a welcome surprise that allowed us to indulge in urban raucousness but regain our middle-aged suburban sanity in the quiet containment of our suite. The loft suite was light, bright and well appointed with delightful contemporary decor. The staff were friendly, helpful and once again, young and energetic. Perhaps the only criticism is that we would have preferred an extra length king bed, greater tv channel offering and a consistent mid-morning cleaning service. Other than that, we would gladly return to this delightful small hotel."

"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!"
