District Six Guesthouse, Cape Town
Wonderful place and people
The owner is possibly the most hospitable person you could want to meet (she dropped in to visit every morning) and the staff follow in her manner. The location is very accessible to both the highway to downtown Cape Town and the International airport. The rooms are ageing but very comfortable, quiet and clean. We rented a car and parked the car on site in a gated area.

Humble place, but good value for the money.
I was very happy with the atmosphere at the guest house, and all in all I was satisfied with my stay. This guest house is driven by the owners in a very welcoming and guest friendly way, and I can only recommend others to visit the place, if they appreciate personality and autencity from the place they are staying. Especially if you yourself is a person who likes to involve yourselv with the people who surround you. The place itself is not in the best maintenance condition, and it is not located in the best place, if you want to be close to downtown. On the other hand it takes only 40 minutes walk to downtown, and 1 hours walk to the water front, and it is possible to shop all dayly necessaries in the near neighborhood. All in all I was happy with my stay, and I give the place an honest recommendation.

Not what I was expecting from a 3 star rated establishment. The room was the major disapointment. Very basic and poorly equiped. It is understandable that the building is a heratage siteand no major structural adhancements can be made.

Excellent staff who were extremely helpful and went out their way to accommodate requests and address issues. The decor is old fashioned and the maintenance is suboptimal. The location is excellent and their is a wonderful view from the spacious verandah.
