3* Hotel with 5* viewPosted Nov 5, 2013
Pros: The view was immaculate. Bed comfy. Room clean. Breakfast generous.
Cons: The staff could be just a little bit more on top of their game, and a refurb wouldn't hurt too much.
Location: Very handy for Long Street, and if you've got a car it's trivial to get over to Camps Bay and up to Table Mountain.
We stayed 3 nights in the Cape Town Hollow Boutique Hotel, and if pressed for a review we'd probably say "It's a hotel". Certainly nobody at the front desk or in the breakfast room would ever be described as a Service Industry Professional - nothing bad, per se... just a string of bewilderingly average things. The hotel itself is a little rough around the edges, but perhaps "boutique" in this context means "not too polished". However the key feature of any room in this place is the stunning view of Table Mountain, and though it's not really a landmark easily missed in this town, every glance out of that window makes you forget anything going on inside it.

this site is rejecting my typingPosted Oct 19, 2013
Pros: great location, good food, friendly staff
Cons: A bit old and worn down. Pool was not in operation.
Location: Company's Garden, city's business centre and markets, Long Street Get the Hop On Hop Off bus for a great leisurely tour.
Enjoyed the place. Good features out weighed the bad features.

Cape Town HollowPosted Oct 2, 2013
We spent 5 nights at Cape Town Hollow. We had a room on an upper floor with a fantastic view of Table Mountain. The room was very spacious and breakfast was excellent. We used the shuttle service of the hotel a number of times with transfers from and to the airport and around Cape Town. The service was very adaptable and convenient. The hotel is in a great location and very handy to the Company's Garden and the City Centre. We would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Cape Town.

Amazing service, picture perfect viewsPosted Jul 22, 2013 on Hotels.com
I absolutely loved this hotel. I got a great deal with my friend to stay there for 6 nights. The service was exquisite. We left our rooms quiteessy each day in a mad rush to do our activities and every time we return they were not only spotless, but there were little cute extras such as our pj's were folded and place under our pillows. The buffet breakfast was yum (eggs made on the spot) and the location was perfect! Just off long street so you had the busy restaurants and bars yet we weren't disturbed in our location. The view of table Mountain from our window was actually picture perfect, exactly as the pictures look on the website. Just make sure to remind the hotel you would like a room with a view upon arrival. Finally, the services (airport pick up and drivers available to take us around Cape Town which goes onto our tab at the end of the stay was perfect!) I am well travelled and have had many experiences with hotels and I can honestly say this place was lovely and very convenient. Thank you Cape Town hollow!

Very close to all attractions!Posted Feb 25, 2013 on Hotels.com
The service and the staff at the hotel were very helpful. We first were given a twin room which was very small and by the third day we got a bigger room. The beds are very good and we had a good nights rest the full 8 days we were there. The pool was dirty and the sauna was not working. Also our room was not cleaned before 2.00 pm. and most of the time we never got enough towels. Otherwise we found the hotel very accomedating and helpful . The breakfast was very good and the hotel was located near the center of town with the lovely "Company Garden" right across and below Table Mountain. - We would stay there again.

Nice hotel with fab views & friendly helpful staffPosted Feb 3, 2013
Pros: Clean and comfortable with a great atmosphere, fabulous views and friendly staff
Location: Lovely quiet location with outlook over Company Gardens and Table Mountain views but it's a hefty walk to V&A Waterfront
The Cape Town Hollow is located in a pretty street opposite the Company Gardens and the Planetarium with views of Table Mountain - well worth paying a bit extra for a high floor mountain view room. It's also right opposite bus stop 6 on the Red Route City Bus Tours (a a fabulous way to get around the city). Location wise it is a bit of a hike to the V&A Waterfront - around half an hour on foot - but a taxi is only around R45 and well worth it if you don't fancy a walk. Rooms are a good size and spotlessly clean. Although there wasn't much storage space it's what you'd expect expect from a city hotel The pool area is tiny but adequate - we didn't use it as there was so much going on in the city. Breakfast was varied with hot and cold choices and we used the restaurant a couple of times in the evening and found prices to be reasonable and food quality good. On our last evening they had a BBQ and live music, which was excellent Staff here were amazing - we were delayed by 24 hours due to flight cancellation and they went out of their way to help by calling tour companies for us, rescheduling excursions and letting us hold onto our room for a few hours after official check out time at the end of our stay. All in all a great stay

Value for money stay!Posted Jan 19, 2013
Pros: The friendly front desk staff
Cons: The air conditioning
Location: Central and in a safe area.
Centrally located, the only problem we encountered was a faulty air conditioning system. The problem was solved by us moving to another room. A hint: try not to get a room on the lower floors as it can get a little noisy especially closer to the weekend.
