“Friendly stylish and charming”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 April 2009

Rouge on Rose is a great little boutique hotel in the charming Bo-Kaap area of Cape Town. The hotel is only minutes away from major attractions including Greenmarket Sq, Long Street and City Bowl, with lots of eateries close by. Our suite was very modern, spacious and clean. We had a huge king-size bed and a pull-out sofa (which was actually very comfortable)... loved the rain shower! The service was excellent and very personal. Its a family run place and this added the perfect touch of warmth and friendliness to an otherwise very chic hotel. The owners know everything there is to know about the city. The restaurant/cafe makes great little sandwiches and tid-bits, breakfast was both scrumptious and healthy. I highly recommend this hotel - its great value and made our stay in the Cape all the more memorable.

What a find !! Very stylish and modern boutique hotel in a great location in cape town. We spent three nights there but could have easily stayed longer. The rooms are very spacious and really modern, it feels like you have your own flat rather than staying in a hotel. All the best restaurants and nightlife are very nearby. The owners Ursula and Michel were great in giving us advice as to where ( and where not ) to go and generally taking the time to sit down and chat to us every time. Would definately recommend it to anyone staying in cape town as we stayed in a different area for the following three nights but somehow always ended up in bo kaap and city bowl again ! ( For the nightlife and excellent restaurants ..) Highly recommend it for the friendly but very professional service and fantastic room and location. Great stay alround !

Mother and sun have a new hotel, with rooms like a studio.
They are very kind and helpful with finding interesting places and restaurants.
Even when we where already at home they try to solve our problem with a stolen suitecase.
If you want to stay in de centre of Cape Town than you can stay safe and comfortable in Rouge on Rose .

We found this boutique hotel through a friend of ours and were so happy with our stay. The owners were extremely helpful and really told us the ins and outs of Cape Town. The rooms itself were modern with nice artistic decore. Its got a great location of being just outside the vity centre and near all the shops and restuarants.... not to mention its in the colourful Bo Kaap.

What a great find!!!
Highly recommended to others.

Thanks Ursula and Michel for making our stay great
hoping to be back soon!!!!!!!!!!!!
