Charming guesthouse - nice people - good location
This guesthouse was exactly what I needed during my stay in Cape Town. It has a tremendous amount of charm that can only exist in a property that is a little bit older. The couple that run it are very, very nice people, as were the other staff members that I met. My unit had a small refrigerator and microwave and there are grocery stores a short walking distance away. The Victoria and Alfred waterfront is also within walking distance. If you're looking for a modern hotel with all the amenities, this is not the place for you, but if want a clean room in a charming house with people who make you feel like family, you've found it!
