“Did it again!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 January 2012

We did it again - stayed for 12! wonderful and relaxing days at the 2inn1 in Cape Town. Since our last visit, things are still excellent. The Spa still a perfect place to relax with massages (best: hot stone) or have a facial, manicure and pedicure. The lunch menu very well chosen and very tasty. I found time to read a 600 pages book, ages since I could do this last time. Always very nice other guest to chat along with from all over the world. For the evenings we always got very good recommendations for restaurants including reservation. We will defenitly do it again - stay at the 2inn1 in Cape Town.

Room Tip: All rooms are good.

This is without a doubt, the best hotel I have ever stayed at anywhere. Without a doubt, this is the best hotel staff I have ever met anywhere. (And I travel a lot). Read the other reviews and believe the hype. Then book a stay, you will not be disappointed.

This was our 3rd stay in wonderful 2inn1.
When we decided a year ago to return to CT for the festive season, there was no discussion on where to stay : 2inn1 was a no brainer ! And once again, we were very happy.
You could choose 2inn1 for the attractive, modern styling of this intimate guesthouse, you could choose it for the impeccable service (from restaurant bookings and transport arrangements to the best suggestions) or for the perfectly quiet and serene location... but for us, it is all about the old an new friends we encounter time after time : the wonderful staff and the fantastic people we meet when staying there make saying goodbye really hard and even emotional. The only consolation we have is that we will come back as soon as possible.
Special thanks to Steffi : it is hard for us to put in words how much we adore you > the perfect New Year's eve which you organised, the fact that you brought my forgotten wallet in high speed to the airport and above all the sincere kindness and fun that you let us experience made us feel like leaving a true friend.
To all future visitors to Cape Town : don't hesitate to book a room at 2inn1. Whatever your interests and desires, you will feel great and will not regret staying here !

Room Tip: All rooms are nice really. This time we stayed in a standard room and since we spent little time in...

Recently my husband and I had the pleasure of staying 6 nights at 2Inn1 Kensington, Capetown. We had read previous reviews on Tripadvisor, so were worried that our expectations would be too high, but the caring and attentive staff surpassed all expectations! They knew our names upon arrival. The accommodation itself was also clean, comfortable and stylish.
The breakfast each day was a phenomenal treat with everything from fresh fruit salad and homemade baked goods to made to order English breakfast or plate of French toast.

The staff took the time to make sure that we had everything we needed on a daily basis...plus helped us to organise a rental car (Thanks Klaus...who got us one of the last ones over the busy Christmas season), booked our taxis for our dinner reservations (nightly) and gave us amazing tips on where to go, when to go and what to do outside of Capetown, as well as in Capetown.
The service we received was bar none the best we've ever experienced and we travel extensively! We even received a Christmas present...it felt like we were staying with family and yet we had all the privacy we needed for our romantic holiday!

Thank you again to all the staff at 2Inn1, especially, Claire, Klaus, Steffi and Chris! We would love to return one day.

2inn1 truly lived up to the high expectations we had based on the reviews on Tripadvisor, on the basis of which we decided to stay there. Klaus, Chris and their team really strike a rare balance of making you feel at home and at the same time go all the way to ensure you can make most out of your time in Cape Town. It started with the e-mail correspondence making enquiries for a possible stay, Klaus has the great habit of reacting almost instantly and provides all kind of useful information and links pro-actively. In that way, we ensured tickets for the Robben Island visit (a must if you visit Cape Town) which we would otherwise probably have missed if we would have tried to book them at the spot during high season. Also, he was able to book us tables in the much sought after Test Kitchen and The Roundhouse restaurants, which were amazing. We also realy liked that they gave you a print out with a short description of the restaurant, confirming the time of the reservation and taxi pick up which they arranged for you. As already mentioned in other reviwes, the cell phone they provide you with is really a good idea. Always call the taxi they recommend (they arrive within 15 minutes) as other taxis cannot find the hotel or otherwise are not comfortable or too pricey. The breakfast was superb, which a much wider choice in fresh products (fresh fruit salade, cheeses, salmon, avocado etc) than in some of the bigger/more expensive hotels and the cooked breakfast was of great quality as well. The complimentary sundowners were great and sometimes provided you with the opportunity to chat with other guests, if you take them on the sofas facing table mountain and lions head, but of course you should also try to have them in the jacuzzi in their garden which a great way to end the day. We stayed in the apartment and it is really a great room, you have a big living room area and kitchen and a private garden (great for a quite evening with a bottle of that great South African wine and some nibbles for which the saturday market at the old biscuit mill is great-thanks for recommending that Steffi!) on top of the walk-inn rain shower and quiet bedroom. On our last day, we had a great massage for a more than reasonable price, so make sure you include that after a long day's walk in the city. If we would have a point for improvement, we would suggest to provide the guests with an evaluation form on the day they leave in which case we would have suggested that it would be nice if they would have some more variety in the bottles of wine on offer and also offer some local bubbly (called Cap Classique and generally they are of really good quality) for the guests to purchase if f.e. they would like to spend a night in. Also, we thought the bed was just a little bit too hard, but that is really being very picky- we did not sleep a minute less for that reason. Thanks everyone at 2inn1 for making our six days in Cape Town an absolute bliss! Do not hesitate: stay here!
