“Lovely”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 May 2009

We stayed for a week and the team running the hotel (although it feels more like staying with friends) are very hospitable, helpful, and their main goal is for you to have a great time.
Location is quiet but within easy reach of a majority of things you will want to do.
Rooms are great and extremely comfortable whilst stylish and with amazing showers!!
Breakfast would cater for everyone and set you up for the day.
Their tips and assistance just make your trip that much more enjoyable.
Thanks for a superb week :)

Liked - everything
disliked - nothing at all
We spend a week there in March and we could happily stay for a month.
The guesthouse is nicely done, simple and stylish with some distinstive modern and african art pieces as well. The rooms are bright and functional, we really liked the pebble tiled bathroom. Basically, everything is very new and modern, yet very cosy and warm! Our room had a patio as well, cute garden and outdoors shower : perfect to sunbathe and chill in the afternoon.
Breakfast is great either by the pool or at your room's patio - all freshly made and delicious! and always served with a big smile!
What makes the place so unique are the people : Lo, Frank and Peter obviously enjoy Cape Town and that's how they decided to start Dysart! Now they make sure you also get the best out of it, recommending the best restaurants and bars in town, arranging trips for you, sharing some lovely wine by the pool in the evening.
And the best thing is that nothing feels "pre packaged" or artificial : you feel you are among friends who will try to make your holiday unforgettable!
Great place, we hope to make it back there soon!

Perfect place to relax and unwind but also conveniently located for those who wish to explore Cape Town and beyond. The owners and staff are very friendly and happy to help and advise on trips, tours, restaurants, etc. The guest house is tastefully designed with a contemporary feel, rooms are clean (as everywhere throughout), spacious and stylish. The pool is perfect for a refreshing dip and big enough for an energetic swim. Personally, I do not hesitate in recommending a stay here whether for a couple of nights or a couple of weeks. My stay at the DysArt was simply delightful and I would happily stay there again.

We spent a weekend in Cape Town on a whim and found the dysART online at the last minute. We weren't really sure what to expect.

We arrived to find an intimate and elegant boutique hotel in an absolutely gorgeous setting. The rooms are truly 5 star, with beautiful stone bathrooms, LED lighting, comfy beds and minibars stocked with delicious South African wines. Breakfast is included and can be served in the dining room, on the patio by the pool or in your room.

The owners - a husband and wife team from Germany - couldn't have been friendlier. Each of their restaurant recommendations was fantastic and the wine they served us in their beautiful pool area was great. They seem to take great pride in their adopted city. I will definitely be back on my next trip to Cape Town.

We are delighted to write a review of the DysART.

Our trip to Cape Town was a combined business / pleasure trip with another couple. It was our first trip to South Africa that took place over the late October-early November period, 2008. The DysART is the best small guesthouse / boutique hotel we have stayed anywhere in our travels. Owners Lo, Peter and Frank, and their team Marten, Alex, Neefa and the other fine ladies are gracious hosts that cannot do enough to make your stay relaxing and comfortable. There is no request or assistance that they cannot render you from super glue to fix sun glasses to restaurants for fine dining. Indeed, every restaurant and winery recommendation was outstanding. These people know the city and Cape Region intimately.

The DysART is new (~18 months old) and immaculate with very modern facilities and beautiful décor. The owners are art lovers and it shows. The rooms are large and very comfortable with some very attractive features such as lots of closet space, access to the outdoors, soft lighting, etc. We stayed in several of them as we were coming and going for several extended trips that took us away from the city. The staff was gracious in accommodating us with luggage storage, laundry (done on site and everything neatly ironed and folded), etc.

The breakfasts are continental style and most satisfying, though the ladies will make you anything you ask for. One can eat inside or enjoy the morning on the patio. The small pool is not heated but on a hot day is refreshing. There is a very comfortable sitting area inside that has a lot of current and topical tourist information. If you can’t find the information you need, the staff will. There is a computer set up at the mini-bar that can be accessed at one’s leisure.

Given that the DysART is a new establishment, we too had a driver that had difficulty finding it from the airport. The Ultra liquor store on Main Street down the hill, as well as the Hyper pharmacy, is a well-known signpost and guide for the unfamiliar. We would recommend having them send Alex out to fetch you, a wonderful man and great driver who will wisk you around town our out to the nearby winelands.

The DysART is an easy 15 minute walk to the waterfront complex and 25 minutes walk to the convention centre. The ladies had no problem navigating the route and felt quite safe doing so. There are several good restaurants down the hill on Main Street (within a five minute walk; e.g. Hussar’s Grill), though Frank can find a fine dining establishment to suit any taste and arrange for Alex to take you there and back.

We felt safe and comfortable at the DysART with Marten (true rugby fan) always there to welcome us every evening regardless of our arrival time. It was like staying with friends and on many evenings we enjoyed conversation and a glass of wine with Frank, Lo and Peter.

In a word, ‘outstanding’ in all aspects. We give the DysART our highest recommendation and want to come back!

We loved this guest house. The decor was very modern, rooms were large and comfortable, view and pool were lovely, and the hosts were very helpful. The location is very convenient for getting around Cape Town. DYSart is highly recommended if you're looking for something high quality and comfortable but intimate.

Great guesthouse with a beautiful terrasse and pool and very stylish and clean rooms.
Full english breakfast with fresh fruit salad, juice etc.
Very useful tips from the host on restaurants, sightseeing, shopping etc.
Perfectly located in Greenpoint and within walking distance to the V&A Waterfront, many good restaurants and bars.
Within the last 20 years I have seen many hotels, B&B's and guesthouses in Cape Town and dysART is one of the best.
