I can't speak highly enough of 2inn1 - everything about this place is wonderful. The setting in a lovely residential street close to lots of great amenities, views of Table Mountain from the breakfast and pool area, the lovely spa, fantastic spacious and clean rooms (with a view of the mountain if you're lucky). But above all else, the service... More

What a gem of a place tucked away in Gardens, Cape Town. A beautiful setting under Table Mountain. Lots of space. Staff couldn't be more helpful and friendly. Lots of useful advice. Great spa facilities We will definitely be returning!

Every time I read about a small place on Trip Advisor that is so well reviewed, I get a little suspicious. Is this place really the #1 hotel in Cape Town? Turns out the reviews are spot on. What makes this place so special as everyone else writes is the staff. Klaus (owner), Steffi (manager) and Claire (manager) are beyond... More

Enjoyed 9 wonderful nights at the 2inn1 Kensington, our stay really couldn't have been any better! Set in a peaceful residential area just outside the hussel & bussel of the city centre, but still within walking distance of Long street & 5 mins cab ride to the water front. Our room was beautifully furnished, immaculately clean, & equipped with everything... More

The 2 Inn 1 is in my opinion the perfect place to stay in Cape Town if you want peace and quiet and do not mind going to the restaurants in town for dinner. However, they do have a snack menu available in the evening. The Boutique Hotel has 10 rooms and is situated in the Gardens area of Cape... More

We had an amazing stay at 2inn1. Best part was Claire. She anticipated all our needs and was incredibly helpful with tips, making our reservations, helping us with directions .... anything we could have possibly needed help with. Aside from Claire, all the other members of the 2inn1 staff were lovely and made our stay really comfortable. As for the... More

We spent four nights at 2Inn1 Kensington in late October. The B&B was lovely. Room and common area beautiful decorated but the best part was the staff.

None of the five star reviews here are an overstatement. From start to finish, Klaus, Claire, steffi and the team did everything possible to make sure that our first visit was truly memorable.

We were so glad we chose to spend our first three nights in South Africa at this lovely hotel. We were made to feel very welcome and immediately started to feel comfortable and relaxed easily into our holiday. Everyone was very friendly and so helpful. We had planned our own itinerary but after a lot of help from Steffi we... More

Had a great few days in Cape Town staying at the 2inn1 guest house. We were given a great welcome upon arrival. Providing us with a local mobile phone and SIM card for the duration of our stay was a great idea. We also loved the 'sundowner' happy hour (actually 2 hours) every evening. The breakfast was superb too. Would... More
