Original building from 18th century, professional renovation into beautiful boutique hotel with only a couple of rooms. Big room with clean and modern bathroom. Personal attention by owners and high level of service, including tour facilities. Peacefull, withing hand reach of Table Mountain and roof terras was excellent spot to make Table Mountain pictures. Highly recommended.

My husband and I recently had a holiday in Cape Town traveling from Ballito kzn ,and stayed at The Three Boutique Hotel. Our experience was amazing ! The owners and their representatives were outstanding in their service with their "never too much trouble " attitude and they all showed us personal care and consideration to all our needs.The room was beautifully decorated and very comfortable, with everything we needed,including stunning warm fluffy gowns to keep us warm.The location for us was the best,it was so close to everything and easy safe parking for our car,the mountain is right in front of you ,and the views from the roof terrace were fantastic..I mustn't forget to mention the welcome glass of bubbly we got handed as we arrived.We highly recommend this hotel. We will be back !

The location of the hotel. Pros include a small owner operated hotel with a lot of charm. There is a lot of interaction between owners and guests, much like a bed and breakfast. That is good for us as the owners were quite nice and very helpful with trip planning and the like. Because it is a small hotel that is privately run with several other nice employees, sometimes there isn't anyone at the desk but you can dail the owners in their cottage next door and they are great about helping you. The hotel itself is quite comfortable with nicely appointed spacious rooms for our family of five (rooms one and two). There is a pool but we could of course not swim as we were here in the winter (70 degree gorgeous days). Breakfast is varied and quite good, they provide hot breakfast upon request and vary the daily offerings. An open honesty bar, inexpensive laundering, and awesome roof tops are major pluses. The only contrarian thing we can say is the location is not optimal. It is not close to anything in cape town. While it is in a very safe part of the city bowl, the entire surrounding neighborhood is practically in lockdown (electric and barb wire). So, you must have a car or be reliant on taxis and tours. The good news is that taxis are cheap, six dollars or so for five to get to the waterfront, Camps Bay, and other spots. Bottom line is that we really liked the hotel, but would likely stay closer to the water when we return to cape town. Four nights minimum in this wonderful place, get out to the peninsula, wine country, and hermanus for whale watching. Cape Town is a world class city. If you want to go to Robben Island, make sure you book your ticket before you come. It is booked about 5 days out.

Room Tip: Rooms 1&2 connect and have 12 foot ceilings and a kitchen in room 1! Great rooms and the beds and sleeping were awesome!

Hi,

Thanks so much for taking the time to write the review and thanks for the compliments, it was a pleasure meeting you and glad you enjoyed stay!

Just with regard to the location, as with pretty much the whole of South Africa many homes and businesses have bars on windows and electric fences, there is not a place you can stay in SA where you will not see this all around you. It’s not the entire neighbourhood that is in lockdown, it is the whole of South Africa (unfortunately – as most of it is completely unnecessary). Like you say it is a safe neighbourhood.

The Waterfront is really for those who want to be in the middle of it all, it’s busy and full of the big name hotel chains and toursity places but there are no small hotels, B&Bs or guesthouses down there, you will only find that in the City Bowl (where we are).
We pride our establishment as being a place to relax and unwind after a busy day whilst being within walking distance to a large number of top restaurants (10 mins. walk to Kloof Street and Long Street). To be able to sit in absolute peace and quiet in the afternoon sun after a days sightseeing is something you can’t do at the Waterfront.
The Waterfront is also separated from all the restaurants, shops and bars by the CBD, so you end up catching a cab anyway, whereas if you stay in the City Bowl you can walk.

We hope you will give the City Bowl another chance next time ;o)

Thanks and best regards,

Justin

If you're planning on getting down to Camps Bay while you're in Cape Town (and I'm guessing you are) then Three might be the perfect place. It's in the City Bowl suburbs so you can scoot over the hill, taking in the amazing view of the Atlantic, then cruise down to the bars and of course the beach at Camps Bay.

Plus you're close enough to walk into the centre. It really is a great place to be based for exploring, and then rooms, breakfast and ambience are all so relaxing. There's even a roof terrace with spectacular views of Table Mountain. Take a glass of wine from the bar and enjoy the stars.

And don't forget to ask Natalia or Justin about the building's interesting history!
