We had a wonderful stay at this small boutique hotel recently. Sheffi, Claire and staff were fantastic. I was presented with a small birthday cake and the entire staff sang 'Happy Birthday' to me, making this stay very special indeed. They went over and beyond to help us retrieve a backpack left at a restaurant. There were other small niceties...

We've just returned from 4 nights at the 2inn1, and would definitely recommend it. The staff is really warm and helpful, our room was nice, and the view of Lion's Head is lovely. The room was quiet and comfortable and we had some of the best sleep on our trip.

Staying at 2inn1 is something you should consider if you are planning to visit Cape Town. Yes there are cheaper places, places nearer to the beaches, places around the Waterfront etc, but the concept that Klaus and Christopher (owners), Steffi and Claire (managers) and the rest of the team have, really does push this to a different level. It is...

We booked this small boutique hotel for a week’s stay at the beginning of April based on excellent Tripadvisor reviews, but thinking can it really be as good as they say? We were not disappointed and if anything, 2inn1 Kensington exceeded our expectations. As other reviewers have mentioned, 2inn1 is truly service orientated. Without exception the team is extraordinarily attentive,...

I've just returned from a three-night stay at 2Inn1 following a friend's wedding in South Africa. This is an exceptional B&B with five-star service by a very caring team. I was looked after so well from the moment I entered the property and given great advice by both Claire and Steffi during my stay - as a woman travelling alone...

We just stayed for three nights at this wonderful boutique hotel in Cape Town in March 2017 and would have liked not to leave anymore. It's very difficult to describe, what makes this place so terrific, there are so many things, such as the very warm welcome from Steffi, the helping hands from the whole staff, the daily offered drinks...

It has all been said in previous reviews; but believe them this a really fist class place to stay and explore CT. Great pool and very welcoming in all respects. A place you really need to experience if you can book a stay.

Slightly delayed review. Stayed with Klaus, Chris & the Team again in December '16. Our usual time. Think that's five or six years in a row now. I've never experienced a place with less complacency. Nothing is taken for granted, despite constantly being the number 1 place to stay. Every year there are improvements; this time tweaks to the decor,...

My husband and I stayed at 2Inn1 in early March. It was actually the first time we had ever stayed at a boutique hotel. Even before we arrived, the hotel staff assisted us with setting up airport transportation and restaurant reservations. Upon arrival, we were offered drinks and chips. We shared our week's plans with Claire and she made special...
