Do note that they call themselves as a FINE Boutique Hotel and not just A Boutique Hotel. And for several good reasons. It feels secluded from the noise and traffic of the City Bowl. The interiors are what you would expect in a typical City Boutique Hotel heavily influenced by Old and Contemporary Euro-African Designs which works perfectly. The staff (Robyn, Madré, and Butlers) are all hospitable and very eager to assist -- from taxis, transfers, confirming reservations, tours. Tea Time is an excellent time to chill. But if you do miss it, complimentary drinks (both alcoholic and non-alcoholic) are available at the lounge.
A taxi or some form of transportation is necessary to get to places of interest. But taxis are just a phone call away and are very prompt. The location is somewhere in between Camps Bay and Kloof Street/City Bowl, V&A. So expect cab rides to range between ZAR20-50. Not bad at all.
You feel more like a local (a privileged local) rather than a tourist when staying here.
