Ikhaya is a lovely hotel on Dunkley Square with traditional African decor. The second floor rooms facing the Square have a furnished enclosed balcony with a sliding glass door; the third floor rooms facing the Square have an open balcony. There is no elevator, but the stairs are easily navigable.

There is a free breakfast, but I did not eat there, so can't comment. There is also a computer for guests to use. The hotel is quiet and in a quiet neighborhood, but it is directly opposite a very popular bar/cafe that has outdoor seating. Consequently, there is some noise, but I did not find it disturbing.

The hotel is near Company's Garden and only about a 10-15 minute walk to busy Long Street. There is also a City Sightseeing Hop on-Hop off bus stop about a 5-minute walk from the hotel (opposite the 5-star Mount Nelson Hotel). I liked the location because it is in the City Centre and walkable to several attractions, but not right in the thick of the hustle and bustle of Long St. or Kloof St.

The staff at the hotel is outstanding. Very professional, polite, and accommodating. They can arrange transportation to and from the airport, and the driver can also do personalized tours. He is very knowledgeable and experienced, but a bit expensive, so I recommend you negotiate the price of a personalized tour, or at least comparison shop to be sure you are getting a good deal.

I really enjoyed my stay at Ikhaya, and would gladly stay there again on my next trip to Cape Town.

We were warmly welcomed by Ruth and her staff. What an ideal location! We were able to walk safely to many of Capetown's attractions. The airport shuttle and taxi service provided were excellent too. We appreciated the healthy breakfast served to us each morning . We highly recommend iKhaya Lodge. Joanne, Norma & Donna(Canada)

Dear nzanz,

Thank you for taking the time share your experience with us. We are only as good as our last gig, as they say, and to hear each guest remark on being warmly welcomed and assisted makes us very happy. Thankfully, the rain has come and we are in a far better position with the water but we thank you for being considerate and aware of our crisis during your visit, and also that it did not keep you away from visiting us. Hopefully on your next visit you will find a greener and water rich Cape Town!

This small hotel (15 rooms) is a gem. Located in the Gardens District on a square with two outdoor cafes. The neighborhood is safe and easily walkable to the Company Gardens, the Jewish Museum, the National Gallery, District 6 Museum and shops of Long Street. Also a few blocks away is the very modern Gardens shopping mall. Great place to get food or equipment for onward travels. Short taxi to V&A waterfront. The front terrace and some rooms have direct views of Table Mountain and Lion's Head. If you want a big tourist hotel there are plenty of those in CT, but for a more authentic experience as a base in Cape Town this is a great choice. There are suites for famililes, with balconies. Clean and comfortable without excess frills. No AC - just fans which are enough. No pool - those in other larger hotels are mostly closed now anyway due to water shortage. Decorated tastefully with African fabrics and carvings. Very helpful informed receptionists. A tranquil and professionally run hotel

Room Tip: Rooms with views of Table Mt also face Dunkley Sq. Normally quiet but next door cafe noisy on Fri and Sat nights.

Dear Laura F,

Thank you very much for comprehensive review. We delighted in that it really gives one a clear picture of the unique location we enjoy. As a city we are thankful that the rains, and even snow, have come and as a result our dams level are almost fully replenished. Thank you very much for being considerate of the water saving requests that we had and for not allowing it to detract from your holiday and the enjoyment of your stay with us. We are always happy to help and share the best of our beautiful city and are grateful that you found us helpful and professional. We hope you will come this way again.
