Expert Review

A block away from trendy Kloof Street, making it a desirable location, Hippo Boutique Hotel is a fashionable enclave with industrial-chic décor and an affordable price tag. The twenty air-conditioned rooms come with en-suite bathrooms, king-size beds, leather couches, kitchenettes hidden behind sliding panels (with free tea and coffee), fine cotton linen, cherry-wood floors, and hand-crafted headboards. Other perks include a home entertainment center, electronic safes, mini-bars, and complimentary Wi-Fi. Executive suites feature loft-style interiors, with an open-plan bedroom and bathroom on a mezzanine level, a lounge area and kitchen downstairs, and even a personal computer for guests' use. For an especially hip stay, book the Red Bull Suite, a collaboration of the hotel with the famous energy drink. The room is dedicated to underground street cultures, with original artworks by a variety of artists and full views of Table Mountain from the couch.
