Kensington Place

38 Kensington Crescent, Higgovale, Cape Town, Western Cape, 8001, South Africa

A beautiful garden entrance leads you into this stylish and luxurious boutique guesthouse that feels like a little piece of heaven. Incredible concierge service from on-site management means everything will be arranged, from dinner reservations at hard-to-book restaurants to tips on insider city events such as small gallery openings and the like. Each spacious suite comes equipped with an iPod docking station, MacBook Air for your use, and beach-ready bag—a nice touch if you've left these essentials at home. King-size beds are outfitted in gorgeous white linens. The hotel can also lend a GoPro camera, cell phone with a local number, bicycles, and yoga mats—all complimentary. From the exclusive Higgovale area above the Gardens neighborhood, views of Table Mountain from the garden (and most room terraces) are lovely when the weather is clear. Aromatherapy bath products add a luxe touch to sleek bathrooms.
