I stayed at the Three Boutique Hotel in February and I have nothing but good things to say about it. The hotel itself is really lovely – a beautiful old national building that has been converted into a hotel. My room was spacious and clean and the hotel has a lovely rooftop which looks out at a gorgeous view of...

I visited Cape Town just for a long-weekend and stayed here on the recommendation of a friend. The hotel is exceptional - the staff were extremely friendly and helpful, and the room was fantastic; large and bright. Breakfast was delicious (although I confess I had "nippy eggs" every morning which was a treat! Excellent Wifi was available throughout, as well...

Stayed here for a week in March 2017. Location was perfect to hit all the local attractions. Room was clean and spacious. Breakfast daily was great and the service was nice. Honor bar was also a nice treat with great prices (from my view). View from the upstairs deck is amazing. Only con was the ants.

The location of the hotel is within the city bowl and is very close to several attractions. the hotel itself is absolutely stunning.

Only stayed one night prior to going on a cruise but what a treat, a chilled white wine while they completed the room (we arrived too early) then the manager gave us a ride around the corner to the cable car for Table Mountain.

We spent three nights there in the room right to the entrance. The room's small and yet nice. The management is friendly and so is the service. The offer a very good selection of eggs for breakfast. Cleaning of the bathroom could be better. Lack of noise insulation is an issue in the room. We could hear the telephone ringing...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Old and new meet in perfect harmony at The Three Boutique Hotel, with the conversion of this beautiful National Monument building into a stylish and affordable 18 bedroom boutique hotel in the heart of Cape Town. Owned and run by Justin & Natalia Pearson and their close friends Alun & Julie Jones, the service stands out as being exceptional, from the first email, to collection at the airport and looking after you during your Cape Town holiday or business trip. Steeped in hospitality from years of working on cruise ships, Justin and Natalia embody the perfect hosts. The Three Boutique Hotel fills the gap between a too-homely guest house and an impersonal hotel. It's exactly the right balance of chic surroundings, 4-star facilities and friendly service. The Three is modern and sophisticated Cape Town hotel accommodation with an historic heart in a trendy part of Cape Town. It offers free WiFi throughout, air conditioning, spacious bedrooms with flat screen TVs and en-suite bathrooms. A columned terrace tiled in traditional black and white wraps around the house leading to the designer swimming pool and outdoor lounge. The rooftop deck adds another dimension for sunbathing and sunset drinks, with unparalleled views of Cape Town's three iconic mountains: Table Mountain, Lions Head and Devil's Peak, after which The Three is named. Cape Town International Airport is just 17km away and our airport shuttle can be booked to collect you or drop you off. The hotel shuttle is also available throughout the day for personalized tours as well as in the evenings to take you to and from restaurants. Many of Cape Town's top tourist sights are within walking distance and The Gardens shopping center is just a 3 minute walk. ... more   less
