“So comfortable, it feels like home.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 March 2014 via mobile

I stayed here in 2009. It was fantastic. The location in the city bowl is very peaceful and has an outstanding view of both the "Lion's Head" and "Table Mountain", in particular the cable car terminal for the Table.

Stephanie, the general manager, was there to greet us upon our arrival and bid us welcome once again it felt like a homecoming. We love Stephanie! On our last visit we were not able to meet the owners, Chris and Klaus, as they were away on vacation. This time, however, both gentlemen were in town and were splendid hosts. They have also added Claire to their team since our last visit. What a winning combination they all make together.

Each morning they greet you with a warm welcoming smile and outstanding attitude. No detail is too small or request too large. They take a great, heartfelt, interest in your well being and want your stay to be the best it can be. They are able to make suggestions on activities for your day to meet with your mood, needs, time or weather. Any dinner reservations required are booked and their knowledge of the local restaurants of note is awesome.

For breakfast they put on a delicious buffet and also offer a hot cooked breakfast as well. The temptation to eat too much is always there.

I wouldn't consider staying anywhere else.

Have recently returned from Cape Town and having stayed at 2inn1 for a second time in 3 months we were worried that second time round it wouldn't be so good, but we were not disappointed. As previous reviews consistently say, the level of service is exemplary. Klaus, Steffi, Claire and Chris, have the balance just right, always around, but not intrusive, on hand when needed to advise on where to go for days out, where to eat according to your specified tastes etc. The hotel has a variety of rooms, all very comfortable and tastefully decorated. We hope to return next year, but increasingly difficult to book as their deserved success means increasingly, they are full.

We stayed two nights and extended by another one while we were there. If you've stayed at five-star-places, take that and add a lot of personal care and minute attention to detail. Klaus, Chris, Steffi, Claire and all staff were absolutely lovely hosts. Tips, directions and bookings for our trips; restaurant reservations; even a doctor's appointment... they took care of all of that. At the same time, they managed to keep the delicate balance of the peace and quiet we sought and the integration into what felt like a bunch of friends who happened to be there. We'll try to be back, and certainly recommend the 2inn1 with heartfelt thanks for a great start into a fantastic South Africa vacation.

This is the second time we have stayed in 2Inn1 Kensington and we’re definitely coming back next year. The very hospitable owners Klaus and Chris did a marvellous job in renovating the 19th century main house and giving it a modern touch. The rooms are spacious and clean, nicely furbished and the beds are excellent. The ensuite bathroom is equally nice. What we love most about staying here is that there are no time frames. Guests can have breakfast when they want so there is time to relax and unwind. During happy hour, starting at 6 p.m., all drinks are free and brough by you by the most wonderful staffmembers. Steffi and Claire and the rest of the team do their utmost to accomodate your requests regarding dinner reservations etc.

Stayed here for 2 nights at the end of a 2 week trip to South Africa. Couldn't of stayed anywhere better. Great room, friendly helpful staff, relaxing atmosphere and lovely breakfasts! The staff were great at suggesting places to eat and Eric the security guard even escorted us to a nearby restaurant when we wanted to walk... Thank you Eric!

Everything about this hotel was amazing. The second we arrived we were taken care of by the wonderful staff. We had a rough idea of what we wanted to do while we were in Cape Town and they helped us plan the whole week. We stayed in two different rooms for the week and they were both very nice, clean and spacious. Breakfasts and lunch were great. They had great dinner recommendations throughout the week as well.
Towards the end of the week my wife got sick and Steffi drove us to the hospital and picked us up when we were done. I don't think you can get that kind of service and care in many spots.
Too many other great things to list. When we come back to Cape Town we will definitely be staying here again.
