Great affordable hotel near to many attractions

Posted Jun 2, 2015
I really liked this hotel, the staff were great, the place was clean and well-kept, and great location within walking distance from so many places - I spent days walking and really appreciated how much was close by. While my car was broken into just up the road, it was not parked in an area covered by the hotel - so just make sure your car is in the locations that the hotel indicates is covered by their security. Definitely don't ignore this advice and do not leave GPS devices within vision.

agréable séjour au coeur de Boh-Kaap

Posted May 27, 2015 on Hotels
Nous avions réservé la chambre avec accès au toit. Tout juste superbe, vous avez une grande terrasse avec 2 transat en passant par la fenêtre de votre chambre. Nous étions dans une maison à côté de la réception, il s'agit d'une maison avec une cuisine commune à partager entre 3 chambres (dont celle à l'étage avec accès terrasse). Le petit déjeuner est en self service, café, thé, céréales, jus d'orange, oeufs, lait, pain, muffins et fruits sont à votre disposition à toute heure. La taille de la chambre est acceptable mais peu de place autour du lit. La salle de bain est propre. Le ménage est fait tous les jours. Bruce et son équipe sont adorables et prêts à nous renseigner. Si vous avez une voiture de location, il est facilement possible de se garer dans la rue de la maison. Un gardien est présent dans la rue toutes les nuits il pourra surveiller votre voiture. Le quartier BOH-KAAP est très joli avec ses maisons aux couleurs vives mais pas d'animation le soir. Quelques restos à proximité (pied) recommandés par l'hôte.

I would recommend this guest house to most people

Posted Apr 24, 2015
Pros: Small and cozy. The other guests were pleasant to talk to at breakfast. The staff was hard working. The location was convenient to everything.
Cons: Our room was over the kitchen. The staff would make a lot of noise preparing breakfast at 7AM. The WIFI should reach the bedroom. Nicer towels maybe
Location: The Waterkant had nice restaurants, bars and shops. Table Mountain was worth a visit. Make sure to visit wineries and the botanical gardens.
We were in "the suite" in rose lodge (28 rose st) for five nights. We arrived around 2PM and there was no street parking available. The staff looked for the key to the back gate but couldn't find it so we had to park illegally until the street cleared out at 5. After 5PM there was plenty of parking. If you do park on the street, do not leave anything in your car. The room was bright and comfortable, but the bathroom was open to the room (except for the toilet). If you are sharing the room, you will see your roommate naked. There was a separate tub and large shower but a small pedestal sink. The shower had a raised pebble floor that might be an issue for sensitive feet. The bed was a comfortable king with 4 pillows, 2 regular and 2 square. The safe was so far under the desk that it wasn't too useful. There was plenty of shelves and hanging space. The wifi did not work well in our room but worked fine in the dining room. Breakfast was good enough for our needs: Toast, yogurt, muffins, croissants, eggs, juice. The Bo Kaap neighborhood is very interesting. There are quite a few homeless people that conjugate near Rose st and Strand during the day. Other than aggressive panhandlers, we did not have any incident. The hotel is 3 blocks from the Waterkant which is a trendy gay neighborhood with excellent restaurants and shopping. I would recommend this guesthouse if you are an experienced traveler and comfortable in a city environment. We had a nice stay at Rose Lodge.

Perfect place to stay

Very good hotel but the area can be dangerous, but it is the same all over in Cape Town

Tyvärr hela världen håller på att bli en osäker plats. Jag personligen har aldrig kände sig osäkra i Kapstaden. Det finns vissa säkerhetsbestämmelser som man bör följa och om man gör en kommer att vara mycket säker. Vänliga hälsningar, Bruce

Nice place. Good location

Posted Feb 14, 2015
Pros: Location and facilities were great. Staff were helpful. They arranged a pickup from the airport and it went smoothly.
Cons: Would have been nice if staff were closer to the rental unit.
Location: Very easy to access downtown and restaurants and tourist activities.
If I had known I would have stayed longer. Staff were very helpful. The price was very reasonable.

Fina Bo Kaap!

Posted Feb 1, 2015 on Hotels
Vi stannade här i 4 dagar och var nöjda över boendet! Rummet är relativt litet, med ett fräscht badrum och självcatering vad gäller frukosten vilket vi tyckte var bra. Bra område med nära till det mesta!

Nice guest house

Posted Jan 18, 2015
Nice guest house in a very colourful and unique part of town, compared to the more touristy areas. Modern accommodation among the narrow cobblestone streets. Along with some of the benefits of this truly South African area, some danger lingers. Sunlight is your friend. Great dinning near by.
