Great stayPosted Apr 8, 2014 on Hotels.com
We had a lovely stay and wonderful hosts. Nothing was too much trouble. Ideally situated for both Cape Town and the surrounding area. Would be more than happy to stay again.

Welcoming hosts, comfortable stayPosted Dec 8, 2013 on Hotels.com
Barry and Mina were very welcoming, and keen for us to get the most out of our visit to Cape Town. The rooms and other areas have a strong African vibe and are very comfortable.

Best Relax I ever hadPosted Oct 29, 2013
I've stayed in Jambo Guest Housel for three days, and cannot recollect anything better. It was all I wanted - easy booking, easy and timely transfer from and to airport, nice greeting by the hosts, very impressivelly designed and decorated house with unique character of each room, beautiful garden, very good location close to the places of interest and at the same time very quite and family-like. I would recomend Jambo Guest House to any of my friend, and when have the chance to come again, will stay there with great pleasure. My special thanks and warm greetings to the dear hosts - Barry and Mina. They made their Jambo House so welcoming and comfortable! Wish to come back and meet them again! Nataliya

Awesome place and hosts!Posted Feb 3, 2013 on Hotels.com
just like you can find in other reviews Jambo guest house is truly the place to be. Mina & Barry are the best! Rooms as shown on the pictures, convenient location (food and entertainment are around the corner). The will furnish you with maps, and tips of whereabouts. I had the opportunity to interact with them beyond a regular guest as I did some site seeing with Mina and was part of a friends gathering they hosted in their bar (2nd floor).. Those fun times will always be in my memory!

Fantastic Hotel in Cape TownPosted Jan 11, 2013
Pros: The whole experience
Cons: There wasn't any
Location: Just in in the right place walking distance to most things
This hotel is superb it does not matter which room you choose you will greatly impressed the decor is out of this world, The rooms are cleaned daily and the breakfasts are all you can wish for. You are made to feel one of the family here nothing is to much trouble from help with trips and general getting around Cape Town.

Quiet spot in the cityPosted Oct 12, 2012 on Hotels.com
A pleasant place with a lovely garden in a quiet area of Cape town. The hosts are very friendly and the building itself is quirky and interesting as described on the website. Its certainly is not a normal hotel but is a definitely fun place to stay.

A great place to stay Jambo Guest HousePosted Mar 28, 2012 on Hotels.com
Very friendly. Individualized attention from Barry. Great location near Victoria and Albert Waterfront - 15 minute walk. The service was exceptional - anything we wanted to visit or do, Barry advised and arranged. Jambo is also very affordable. If you want a personalized reasonably priced base to visit Cape Town and its surrounding area, it would be hard to beat Jambo. Staying at Jambo feels more like being a member of the family rather than a mere guest. We will stay there again for sure.

Home away from homePosted Mar 7, 2012
Barry and NIsa made us feel right at home. I would recommend Jambo Guest House to anyone who is looking for the comforts of a home away from home while visiting Cape Town.
