All the superlatives in the other reviews are true. Why can't all guest houses be like this and why can't all people who work in them be as helpful and thoughtful as Steffi? The perfect start to our south Africa trip, we only wished we could have stayed longer. Thank you so much to Steffi for everything, especially the table...

One of the most delightful hotels (more like a guest house or B & B) my husband and I have ever stayed at, and we travel a lot now that we are retired. It is located in a very safe residential area of Cape Town, a 10 or so minute walk from the center of Cape Town, and the minute...

We stayed here at the beginning and end of our SA holiday. Both times we were greeted and treated as friends and made to feel very welcome. The hotel is chic, modern, impeccably clean and nothing is too much trouble for the very dedicated staff who all work together seamlessly. We felt relaxed and safe and this contributed in no...

We arrived at the 2inn1 tired and a little jaded after sitting on planes and whatever else for over 24 hours. we were welcomed with "Come and sit down. Can I get you a gin and tonic?" What a wonderful greeting for weary travellers. And that was just the start. Nothing was too much trouble for the wonderful staff who...

We spent 10 days at 2Inn1 in late February and enjoyed every moment of it. We have taken some very nice trips and have stayed at unbelievable hotels; this boutique hotel could give them lessons on customer service. It starts the moment you arrive and continues until the staff is standing outside to wave goodbye as your cab pulls away....

My husband and I stayed here at the beginning of March for 7 nights. We were greeted by Steffi and Chris and from that moment we were made to feel very welcome and at home. We arrived too early, but this was not a problem and we were offered breakfast, coffee, juice anything we wanted. All the staff were great,...

Stayed for 5 nights in early March and from the moment of arrival to a full on farewell from the staff at departure, this was just an outstanding hotel experience. I say this despite a hitch with the air conditioning in our room which meant we were without it for 2 nights. Steffi and the staff rallied, got us fans...

We recently spent 5 nights at 2Inn1 and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a guest house in the Oranjezicht area. The staff are just gorgeous and so incredibly welcoming. We booked late and the only room left was the apartment. We were advised this didn't have a view which was a shame. The room was well appointed...

The 2Inn1 is simply brilliant. My partner and I stayed with Klaus, Steffi, Claire and Chris at the beginning of March for 10 nights and they made our holiday perfect. I could not recommend more highly. We had read all of the amaxing reviews on trip advisor before we arrived so we had high hopes. The team did not disappoint....
