Reviewed 6 October 2013

We were in Cape Town for 3 days and David, Margot and the team were fabulous. From great suggestions about what to see, the BEST restaurants and just making our stay seamless. Cape Standard is a very cool and chilled place- very chic and stylish. Being in a no through road meant that it was always quiet and a good night sleep guaranteed.
Nothing was too difficult for the staff. This is a wonderful place to base yourself in Cape Town.

We stayed three nights. It was a lovely walking distance from the harbor and from lots of shops, in a calm, safe and pretty neighborhood. David and his staff were fantastic hosts, very friendly and smiley. We could have breakfast outside on the deck though it was winter. There is a gorgeous little swimming pool, though unfortunately it was not open! Beautiful warm and simple design. We especially loved the framed drawings upstairs in the corridor! We had our baby with us and felt very welcomed.

I stayed in the Cape Standard for a couple of weeks for a business trip to Cape Town. As it was a long stay I was looking for something a little different to the typical business orientated hotels. The place is very nicely decorated, as you can see from the photos, and the staff/owners very friendly and helpful. Would recommend to all.

Room was not very large but there was enough space for the two of us (including big bags) with a small cosy terrace for smokers like us! Bathroom was spacious with rainshower (a tissuebox was the only thing missing). Coffee/tea facilities and well stocked fridge available. Quality of breakfast was great, the staff was very service minded, David was a cheerfull host, advised about restaurants and made reservations. The atmosphere is relaxed, interior design is bright and modern, value for money!

The best choice to stay for me after having experienced several accomodations in CT.

I booked a weekend, finally stayed a week and could stay there much longer (I've felt at home) :

- relaxing place,
- lovely decoration,
- quality breakfast,
- nice big room, bathroom/shower.
- great tips for visiting the city
...
And this amazing hospitality which makes the difference and makes you think you will come back one day.

The Cape Standard is a beautiful, clean great value hotel in a great part of Cape Town. You can easily walk to the soccer stadium and V&A waterfront. It's also in a very safe area of the city on a quiet little street with free parking available if you rent a car. Margot and David couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. The whole staff is amazing! We stayed here in July and took advantage of their winter special.
