5 of Cape Town’s most outstanding boutique hotels

Cape Town is one of the world’s most popular tourist destinations, with over 4 million international arrivals coming through Cape Town International Airport each year. Yet even with the amount of travellers exploring the city, you won’t find yourself lost in massive crowds of camera-clicking tourists. Cape Town is a creative, friendly, and diverse city that thrives on providing its visitors with new experiences and individual attention. From its artisan food markets and restaurants, to personalised tours and boutique hotels, Cape Town is waiting to personally show you around.

Here are 5 of Cape Town’s top boutique hotels where you can enjoy an intimate Mother City experience with all the upmarket frills of spa treatments, restaurants on site, and more.

The Three Boutique Hotel

Enjoy the best of old and new at The Three Boutique Hotel, where modern features blend with historic architecture in this National Monument building. With stylish décor and friendly service, the 4-star boutique hotel fills the gap between a too-homely guest house and impersonal hotel. You’ll love the pretty courtyard garden, designer pool, and outdoor lounge. A great spot for sunbathing and sundowners, the rooftop deck offers unrestricted views of the 3 iconic mountains after which The Three is named – Table Mountain, Lions Head, and Devil’s Peak.

Hippo Boutique Hotel

Hippo Boutique Hotel is of the philosophy that quality and attention to detail can shift a place from being merely convenient to seriously comfortable. Situated in the hub of the city centre, Hippo offers a central location to explore the streets of Cape Town and the luxury of returning to a superior accommodation with exceptional service at the end of the day. Details like fine cotton linen, king-sized beds, leather couches, cherry wood floors, and contemporary interior design will leave you relaxing in the lap of luxury.

The Andros Boutique Hotel

Step back in time at The Andros Boutique Hotel, a graceful old Cape Dutch homestead with large, park-like gardens in Cape Town’s beautiful Southern Suburbs. The restored homestead is furnished in an elegant, traditional style, complementing the original features of the building and preserving its old-world charm. Enjoy a leisurely breakfast on the terrace, a good book in the sun room or drawing room, pre-dinner cocktails in the champagne room, and fine food and wine in the elegant dining room.

    Whenever I return to CT, I stay at the Hippo…it is hip, fun, comfortable, in a great location and has wonderful owners/managers…I discovered the Hippo about ten years ago and have directed all of our Marquette University folks to stay there when they visit our program in Cape Town.
