This small boutique hotel is situated in a beautiful house in an excellent location in City Bowl area. You will find everything you need in a few steps away: supermarket, ATM, many restaurants and bars are just around the corner. The hop on hop off bus (which is a must do in Cape Town) has a stop 3 blocks away...

We stayed in Cape Cadogan for three nights and found it to be a wonderful experience: really large and luxurious rooms, friendly and helpful staff, great location within walking distance of central Cape Town, with great views of the surrounding mountains, close to a supermarket and restaurants and terrific breakfast (food and helpful staff). The whole atmosphere was warm and...

It was our first visit to Cape Town and South Africa. We stayed three nights at The Cape Cadogan. We had a fabulous time. The staff were amazing, so helpful with even the smallest requests. Perfect location for some fantastic restaurants. Great view of table mountain(when the cloud lifted). Drinks by the fire before dinner, great breakfasts and a hot...

We stayed for nights at this lovely boutique hotel. This type of hotel beats 5 star tasteless hotels hands down. If you are looking for comfort, personal treatment and staff who are only too pleased to help and advise in a more personal way then this is for you. The rooms are very comfortable and the en-suite facilities great and...

We stayed four nights at the Cape Cadogan and loved every minute. We had a large room with a balcony looking out over the main street on the front, and the little pool and fountain on the side. The marble bathroom had twin showers and lots of hot water which was wonderful since it was quite cold and rainy while...

Normally we don't review anything, but at their prodding we joined trip advisor. This little hotel was nice, personal, and just the right size. It begs the question, why would you stay in a large faceless place when you can come to a place like this and feel like royalty. Wait, hasn't royalty stayed here!?!

We stayed for five nights at the Cape Cadogan. We enjoyed the location - not touristy, but close enough to everything on our to-do list. There are lovely local restaurants in walking distance and it is not difficult to walk downtown or to catch the red tourist bus (which we recommend). Our room was well furnished and equipped and bathroom...

Stayed at the Cape Cadogan for 4 nights and really enjoyed this charming house/hotel. It's just the kind of place I like, because it was a beautiful home that had been converted into a kind of urban oasis, with lots of white space and tasteful decorations. Sometimes there are quirky spaces, such as the elevated bathroom in our room, but...

The hotel is beautiful and the staff is wonderful. Simone and Pelo could not have been more accommodating. Their enthusiasm for the city is quite catchy. We had room number 2 and it was lovely. Our stay was very comfortable and the breakfast was delicious. It's within walking distance to some great restaurants and a grocery store which was very...
