“Great B&B in Cape Town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 December 2013

Nice B&B in 5 min. walking distance of the city center with beautiful and spacious rooms. BUT, the best is clearly the great service and the friendlyness of Usula and Michel - it's just like being with friends - good friends.
BTW: make sure you don't miss the breakfast!!

Very good situation near the centre of town. Spacious lounge with self-catering facilities. Breakfast was substantial and imaginative menu cooked to order. The staff were very helpful and obliging especially Michel, who went out of his way to make our stay pleasant

From the warm welcome when we arrived to the spacious room to the awesome breakfasts to the central location, Rouge on Rose is a great place to stay while in Cape Town. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our 3-night stay and appreciated the advice that Ursula and Michel provided. The staff were attentive and friendly. The bed was very comfortable and the WiFi was excellent. We would definitely stay here again.

My wife and I stayed at Rouge on Rose for 4 nights and found the place to be very good. The rooms are basically a 1 bed apartment, so very large and well equipped. The shower is unique in that it is part of the bedroom and this fits in with the quirky decor.

The staff, particularly Ursula and Michel were very helpful and friendly. No request was too much for them and they provided good advice on local attractions. The location is perfect for Cape Town, being a short cab ride / 15-20 min walk from V&A Waterfront and other local attractions.

The breakfasts were excellent! Although we were only able to have breakfast 2 out of our 4 night stay due to early departures, the variety and quality of food was great.

The only slight negative was that the windows/walls to our room (103) were quite thin, meaning that noise from prayers or local public/traffic could be heard during early morning / late evenings.

Overall, an excellent hotel that I would happily stay again in!

Room Tip: Ask which rooms are quietest, as early morning prayers from the Bo Kaap mosques could be heard from...

I have been travelling to over 40 countries and stayed in hundreds of hotels, my favourite so far: ROUGE ON ROSE.
The room: Gigantic well design rooms and the whole place are filled with charm. The shower is big and very nice and the beds are comfy.
And the Breakfast, WOW.. Everything from the menu is magnificent! The healthy option was my own favourite, but you can order anything!
Definitely the nicest and most service-minded staff on our long journey through Africa! They helped us a lot :)
The place is very nice in itself located in the middle of the city center. The internet is not especially good, but come on YOU`RE in CAPE TOWN and you shouldn't sit on your computer.

Room Tip: Any room.. Big rooms, great rooms..

I Love Rouge on Rose! The rooms are very spacious and beautiful and the beds are large and luxurious, a far cry from the typical cramped, dreary hotels. Ursula and Michel and all the staff are so lovely. I looked forward to waking up and have an excellent breakfast, made to order of a choice of several menu items. I would usually have a bowl of the freshest fruit, topped with yogurt, granola and honey, which would keep me satiated the whole day. Ursula and Michel were so wonderful helping us with each days itinerary, tailor made for our interests. It's been over a year since I stayed there and I sometimes miss Ursula and Michel. Hopefully I'll have a chance to stay
there again someday. Rouge on Rose is the best hotel I've ever stayed!

Rouge on Rose was the perfect base to explore Cape Town: Ursula and Michel's excellent service started when we booked - they arranged a taxi to pick us up for the airport and recommended that we pre-booked our visit to Robben Island. We arrived early from our overnight flight and were greeted with an extra breakfast whilst Ursula arranged a "Footsteps to Freedom" walking tour.
Our room was very spacious, attractively furnished, and well equipped. The breakfasts were the best we had during our tour of the Cape. The location was ideal: in the fascinating Bo Kaap area minutes walk from the city centre and the hop-on/hop-off bus, close to some good restaurants, and within walking distance of the V&A Waterfront.
