iWe stayed here for the first 3 nights of our honeymoon in December. O on Kloof was about 3 miles from the V and A Waterfront, a bit of the beaten track but a quiet location and a short stroll from the seafront.
Our first impression of the hotel was that the staff (Bernatette in particular) were exceptionally helpful, knowledgeable and had the attitude that nothing was too much trouble.

This is a chic boutique hotel, stylish and comfortable. Our only observation, was that, although on honeymoon, we stayed in room 6 which was probably the smallest the hotel has. In saying this it was fine for our stay and we did enjoy our (shared) sundeck and proximity to the gym and pool.
We didn't eat in the hotel for dinner but the breakfasts were very good.
This is a good hotel to use as a base to expore Cape Town and its environs, as long as you are aware that it is 3 miles from the centre of Cape Town.

We have stayed in many wonderful hotels, all over the world. They have varied from five-star convention hotels to small, intimate boutiques, but nowhere else have we ever received such personal attention as at O on Kloof. It was our first visit to South Africa, and we decided to stay in Cape Town for the whole eleven days of our stay; how glad we are that we did! We could not have imagined being anywhere else, and already we are planning to return next year. It would be unfair to mention anyone personally, as everyone was part of the experience - from the owner to the night porter. They have perfected such a reliable and knowledgeable team that everything runs smoothly, and you are made to feel that they have taken the trouble to remember everything about your stay - from what you like for breakfast to where you went for the day, Truly this is the only place to stay in Cape Town.

Evening meals are offered three times a week, and are very good value and of a high standard. Breakfasts, are phenomenal - if you can find room to eat all the things on offer, and there is a lunch menu available each day. The decor of the hotel is relaxing, modern and tasteful, and room 5 has a hot tub on the balcony - quite a treat! Help is at hand for all trips, taxis and restaurant suggestions - all of which are excellent; in fact if you book into this hotel you will get a total package. Thank you to everyone for being so special.

I have to say that my stay at the O on Kloof was infinitely better than I could have hoped for. My friend and I arrived after 22:00 and were warmly greeted by Patricia, the O's manager. She and the rest of the hotel staff (including Olaf, the owner) looked after our every need: "sun downers" and canapes, fantastic restaurant and sightseeing recommendations, etc.

Two stand-out features of the O -- the fantastic breakfast and the heated bathroom floors -- make the establishment seem more like a 5 star hotel rather than a "mere" guesthouse.

We'd made reservations for our stay in Cape Town at another highly rated guesthouse (which, in fact, turned out to be O on Kloof's major competitor), but the guesthouse canceled two weeks prior to our arrival owing to incomplete renovations. So, theoretically, O was our "second choice." Having said that, given our experience, I've never been so happy to have had to make due with my second choice.

Having read the reviews on this website, I had high expectations and this hotel certainly lived up to them. Olaf and his staff are to be commented for a dedicated service to their guests. The hotel is modern and stylish and offers a high level of comfort. From the moment we arrived at the hotel, we couldn't have been treated any better. We were offered champagne on arrival and made feel very welcome. Each day, canapé were delivered to our rooms when we arrived back in the hotel. The breakfast each morning was truly memorable. Far removed from the usual self-service tired fare that is offered even in most 5star hotels. Freshly individual cooked breakfasts with the freshest of ingredients beautifully presented. Bernadette, the manageress, kindly arranged tours, suggested and booked restaurants and taxis each day. Even the laundry was superior! Returned beautifully folded in tissue and wrapped with ribbon, in boxes. My teenage son thought he was in heaven with the food, the indoor pool and gym, satellite TV., free and unlimited access to the internet. We stayed in the room with the jacuzzi on the balcony and I can highly recommend it . I really cannot think of anything negative to say about this hotel. I hope some day we can return.

Three nights at O On Kloof simply wasn't enough for us. We stayed here for the last nights of our honeymoon and wished we'd stayed for the whole trip. This hotel is everything you could ever wish for. Nothing is too much trouble, and every extra has been thought of.

We stayed in Room 1 which was simply luxurious. Decoration was fastastic, the bathroom was great with a his and hers shower and bath big enough for two. The balcony was huge with a double hammock and two sun loungers.

The staff were fantastically attentive and great for restaurant recommendations.

I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough, it is worth every penny.
