2inn1 combines smart, well-considered rooms with a sexy vibe around the long, skinny saltwater pool and requisite views of Table Mountain from the outdoor Jacuzzi, making this one of the best boutique hotels in Cape Town. High Victorian pressed ceilings, original wooden floors, and large sash windows are offset by modernist touches like leather sofas and oversized snakeskin light fittings. The look is fresh and vibrant-in the main house, lime green accents perk up the long, narrow all-white breakfast room, while the adjacent lounge features zebra skin contrasted against white wooden floors, with antelope horns and the century-old fireplace a counterpoint to the contemporary furniture. Classy bedrooms, too, and-for such a small place-packed with extras, including a local cellphone, underfloor heating, dimmable lighting, sound system (with docking station), and a complimentary soft bar. There’s even an on-site spa room if you’re in need of massage.
