I arrived at the Hippo Boutique after a long week in Zambia. I took advantage of using their driver to pick me up from the airport. He was courteous and gave me a mini-tour on the way into town. Upon arrival, the check-in clerk helped me book a ticket to the Cableway up Table Mountain. I got a very nice room upgrade and was escorted to my loft room. The room had a modern, quirky decor and an exceedingly comfortable bed.
My rest was quiet and the air conditioner worked very well. My only difficulty was figuring out how the switches in the room worked. The switches inside the door controlled lights and other functions all over the room but were unlabeled. The lighting design was very intriguing (great use of indirect lighting, etc) but a bit difficult to figure out. I had to call the front desk to have them come show me. Perhaps they could label the switches?
Regardless, I'll definitely return to the hotel and look forward to my next stay.
