Steffi and Claire were extremely thoughtful and understanding of the needs of a newbie to South Africa and gave all the information and support needed to comfortably enjoy Cape Town. The local cell phone, endless sundowners, and attention were beyond anything I've experienced.

Room Tip: The room closest to the street, however nice, is plagued by ants.

Klaus, Claire and Steffi. Thanks for a wonderful holiday!
You helped make Cape Town one of our favourite cities anywhere.
All the staff were so helpful and went out of their way to plan our daily activities. We were given lots of maps and recommendations.
The room was great. No expense spared. From the coffee machine to the personal mobile phone, we had everything we needed and more.
The breakfasts were great and the sundown drinks are a great touch.
We highly recommend 2inn1 and will be back. Sooner than later I hope.
Dan, Karen and Helen

We've travelled all over the world for business and vacation and I must say this is one of the most hospitable group of hosts we've met. Every detail was attended to. Breakfast was wonderful. The managers were very kind and the staff was welcoming. Location is great, with a nice view of the mountains. No wonder they are number 1 on Tripadvisor!

We had a very comfortable stay in 2inn1 during our visit to Cape Town. Large, spacious room and toilet, underfloor heating and comfortable beds! Steffi was so kind to already have a reservation to one of the famous restaurant in Cape Town available just for us. (We called the restaurant a week earlier but they were fully booked till 2015) It was a pleasant surprise.
Breakfast spread was great and we did the heated jacuzzi on one of the cold winter evenings with sundowners ,chips and a good view!

We forgot to write the review last year. We have been traveling so much. We stayed here for four nights with my sister and her husband. Steffi the manager goes beyond to help you with anything. Gave us a phone to call locally if we needed help etc. Wonderful staff and excellent breakfast. The hotel is in a nice part of the town. Easy walk down to riverfront. Takes about 15-20 min walk. Hotel is clean and rooms are large. Can not find anything wrong. We loved it so much we are going back next month.

This is a fantastic little boutique hotel for a quick stop over or for a longer holiday to Cape Town. My room was spacious and clean and the food was first class. I was made to feel so welcome, that it really was like home from home. Nothing is too much trouble and the staff go that extra mile to make sure you are made to feel special; even welcoming you when you arrive and waving you off as you leave. Unfortunately the winter weather didn't allow me to use the swimming pool; but hopefully I will stay in the summer on a future visit and I can really relax around the cosy pool area. Thank you Steffi and the 2inn1 team, you certainly know the meaning of great customer service!

Room Tip: The rooms on the ground floor are very spacious.

The service on this visit was amazing! The room was large and well appointed but it was the staff's knowledge of the city and attention to our needs, whether for tea in the afternoon or arrangements for transportation or meals or by serving perfect breakfasts, that really made this stay memorable. As the staff explained, "Our goal is that you come as a guest but leave as a friend." Mission accomplished!
