Amazing stay
Incredible boutique hotel. Hard product is top notch, from the decor and furnishings to the Le Creuset crockery and Diptyque toiletries. The service has matched it, nothing has been too much for Martijn and the team. I recommend to anyone wishing to stay in central Cape Town.

Incredible Hotel
From a guy that lives in nice hotels as I travel for work a ton, trust me this place is incredible. A hidden Gem. The rooms are huge, stocked with drinks/bites to eat (included), and the staff is amazing. The look, the vibe, the feel of this place is off the charts. Stay here - its the right move, coming from a guy that was in about 45 5 star hotels last year.

Labotessa will stay with you
The online brochure for Labotessa Boutique Hotel claims, "Labotessa will stay will you, long after your stay with us has ended." Indeed, it does. Labotessa is quite simply one of the most charming, luxurious, and beautiful boutique hotels we have ever stayed in. From its spacious and meticulously restored suites with plenty of plugs, pillows, and other sumptuous touches (such as the free minibar and bath products from Diptyque) to its cozy and delicious cafe downstairs (don't miss the Eggs Benedict or the Apple Tart), Labotessa is an oasis of classic design and modern comfort in Cape Town. Moreover, the warm and personalized service provided by Johan, Martijn, and the rest of the team at Labotessa made what could have been a nightmare vacation--we stayed during a Level 4 lockdown--into a truly memorable and enjoyable experience. The location was perfect: walkable to almost anywhere downtown and close to the waterfront and other areas via the free town car service. There are many choices of high-end hotels in Cape Town, ranging from grand dames to the ultra-modern, but this one truly stands out for its beautiful design, its gracious hospitality, and its central location. Stay here--it will stay with you.

This property is spectacular! We have had the most incredible experience at this luxury boutique hotel — arguably the best in the world. Everything about this hotel is 6 stars. The property owner previously worked as a Senior Executive for a world renown luxury hotel brand. He has thought of literally everything travelers could want to enjoy in a room, as well as to experience while staying overnight, or for days on end in Cape Town. This property will blow anyone way with it’s fine attention to detail, amazing comforts, and thoughtful, generous amenities. The interior design of the rooms/suites is utterly phenomenal. We will definitely recommend this hotel to everyone we know so that they might enjoy as well.

Booking at Labotessa proved to be the best decision we made during our vacation. Upon arrival, the Front of House Manager, Martijn greeted us personally and arranged for a small afternoon tea to be served during our check in and registration. During our tea, we enjoyed good conversation and Labotessa’s delectable, homemade peanut butter cookies. We were then shown to our suite. Our room was immaculate, spacious, and well appointed. The rooms’ windows looked out over the square and offered an unobstructed view of Lion’s Head Peak – gorgeous. We were also greeted by a handwritten welcome note and a complimentary bottle of locally produced red wine (Stellenbosch). The room was stocked with complimentary water, juice, soda, cocktail makings, cheese, olives, crackers, homemade humus, Nespresso, teas, and local nougats. When we ventured out each day, Martijn ensured that the hotel’s car was available to takes us (free of charge) wherever we wanted to go. This same accommodating attitude persisted throughout our stay: we were escorted on our short walks to nearby restaurants after dark… our umbrellas were opened and dried… ticket issues were addressed and resolved by the staff…

Absolutley awesome experience!
My wife and i have traveled all over the world and this was honestly one of the best hotel experiences we have had. Labotessa is exactly what a boutique hotel should be. Beautiful hertigae building with excellent decor. Johan and Martijn were simply amazing. Top class hospitality you would might not even get at a high end resort. They made us feel so comfortable and relaxed our entire 5 night stay. They helped plan out each day and offered to drop us at various location in cape town in their hotel car, a jaguar SUV. They made all dinner reservations and made numerous enquiries about rental cars, shop timings, excursions, etc etc. The staff were always pleasant and accommodating. Love the fact that breakfast is served until 4pm and food was excellent including lunch we had on our last day. Compared to other over priced luxury hotels in cape town, the value for money at this gem of a place is outstanding. The room was incredibly spacious, basically a stuido apartment. The location is excellent. Most people encouraged us to stay near waterfront but having visited there during our trip, we are glad we stayed in the city center close to all the shops and restaurants. Everything about them and their staff including the overall vibe of the building was extremely welcoming. I really could go on and on but suffice it say, we would highly recommend this hotel. These guys know what they are doing and it was nice to finally experience what a boutique hotel is meant to be. Till next time
