“Fantastic boutique guest house”
Reviewed 26 February 2014 via mobile

This place is simply lovely, from decor to location, the attention to detail and attitude of the helpful staff is outstanding.
Spotless and chic, yet really comfortable and homely.
They have thought of everything
I wish we were able to stay longer

I stayed at the Cape Standard in mid December 2014. I chose this hotel largely based on the positive reviews that I read on Tripadvisor. We were looking for something reasonable and located close to Green Point. The hotel itself is very nice, with clean, modern rooms. The common areas are very modern and there is a nice vibe. I particularly liked the outdoor area and the cool music - it was very atmospheric. The breakfast was excellent and served with a lot of attention. The highlight of the stay was the very helpful staff however: Chizzi and Moses took great care of us, and Margot gave us lots of helpful advice on things to do in and around Capetown. I'd love to get an opportunity to return!

Lovely B&B, makes you feel at home. This was our first stay at the Cape Standard. Very clean, superb Service and very obliging, wonderful staff. Facility in the best of taste (David, still love the mirror with the mussels around :-)) Located at a very quiet side street, only a few minutes away from the Waterfront and other places of interest. Would come back to stay at any time. Greets Shirley & Ernst

This is a delightful place from which to explore beautiful Cape Town. We really appreciated being in such a quiet area, yet only minutes walk from the ocean and the V & A Waterfront. The hotel is very tastefully furnished, the garden a delightful place to relax in, and the breakfasts (complete with fresh juice) first-rate.

This was our second visit to the Cape Standard and we will certainly be going back again. David and the team made our visit as enjoyable as possible, so caring and helpful, making one feel really special. Everything is tastefully decorated with a nice modern feel. The rooms are spacious and immaculate and very comfortable. Can't wait for our next visit! Sean,Ginny and Morgan

Cape Standard was a great find! Service was fantastic and the staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. This was a very refreshing break from chain hotels and impersonal service. The common areas were very tastefully designed and furnished. It felt more like being in a boutique hotel than a guest house. The rooms are spacious and very nicely appointed. The location is ideal, as it is close to plenty of great restaurants and bars, with easy access to city center. They provided excellent restaurant recommendations and were able to secure good tables during the busiest time of the year. Will definitely come back.
