For my last two nights in Cape Town, I decided to treat myself to a luxury hotel. I knew that for the next month I would only stay at hostels because I had planned to travel by Baz Bus – a backpackers bus in South Africa which take you from a hostel to another. So I splurged, and I stayed the last two nights in a suite at O On Kloof Boutique Hotel.
The hotel is located in Sea Point which is one of my favorite suburbs in Cape Town. The area is full of cool restaurants, and there is actually an excellent vegan restaurant (Scheckter’s Raw is someone is interested) just down the road from the hotel. It’s also close to beautiful beaches like Camps Bay and Clifton Beach, but not too far from the center either.
The room comes with a king-size bed, double couch, both bathtub and large shower, TV, and espresso machine.
The most awesome part of the room, however, was the huge private balcony with a jacuzzi. The balcony is facing the ocean, and in the evenings you can see the sunset from there.
Set yourself comfortable in the jacuzzi, have a cocktail and watch the sun set down!
Downstairs there’s a swimming pool, small fitness room, and sunbathing area. There’s also have a spa but my last two days in Cape Town were quite hectic, so I didn’t have time to try their services.
Breakfast is served buffet-style, and you can order warm food from the kitchen. I had my usual vegan hotel breakfast: toast, grilled tomatoes and mushrooms and fresh fruit. On my last day, I had to check-out very early before the breakfast time, but they were still able to provide some fresh fruits and toast to my room. Just ask a night before if you would like to have breakfast in your room!
In short, O On Kloof is a great place to stay in during your trip to Cape Town. The location is perfect and close to the main sights, the staff was really helpful, and everything just worked as it should. They have standard and luxury rooms, as well as two suites. For an ultimate luxury experience, private balcony with a sunset view, and a jacuzzi, you should book their suite. The price for the suite is not high if you compare it to some other countries where you would have to pay a lot more for an experience like this.
