Small bed and breakfast very centrally located in Green Point just 10 minute walk from the Waterfront.
There are 6 rooms - 3 on ground floor and 3 on the first floor. The 3 bedrooms on the first floor are all nice and one of the rooms has nice balcony.
The rooms at ground level must be avoided. Dark, enclosed and 2 of them have only windows to the covered courtyard where breakfast is served. Not suitable for staying awake.
It is a matter of taste what you think about interior design and choice of furniture :-)
Cher is friendly and will gladly answer all questions and come up with good suggestions for activities. However, she is available only in the morning.
Upon arrival you will be asked to pay for the entire stay. Strange discount style which we have not seen elsewhere in South Africa.
Cleaning is mediocre. The cockroach in the photo was there several days. Dropping towels on the floor normally means clean towels. But not here!!! Wet towels dropped on the floor were hung out to dry in the yard and then put back in the room. Dank and smelly :-( Disgusting. Especially because you could not be sure that it was the right towel you got back.
Breakfast was very simple and not recommendable.
On our trip from Port Elizabeth to Cape Town, it was absolutely the worst and most expensive place we stayed. The standard may be due to the fact that it is a big city.
But good location and there are plenty of options for shopping just around the corner. It helps the overall picture.
There must be better places to stay in Cape Town at this price.
