This B & B has got everything right. The rates, the position, the breakfasts, all are without fault. It's homely atmosphere is very relaxing and welcoming. Definitely our new place to stay when visiting Cape Town. Highly recommended.

Everybody was very friendly and helpful. We liked to have our breakfast on the terrace.
It is a nice quiet place though it is in the middle of the town.Like a little oasis. Not far from the city center .

Olaf's is in a fantastic central location, the rooms are spacious, comfortable and clean. Breakfast was good. There is an honesty bar and a relaxing outdoor pool area as well - We were made to feel at home and would definitely stay at Olaf's again

The service was perfect, the rooms large and specious. Although Olafs is situated near the seafront and in the middle of sea point it´s quiet and relaxing and close to all ameneties. For going downtown Cape Town you need a car. Parking is possible in the street in front of the guesthouse. The pool surrounded by beautiful flowers looks nice but is too small for swimming.

Service: excellent, very friendly and conscientious

Room: comfortable and pleasant

Location and Amenities: attractive interior; always gratuitously fresh fruit and two different sherries offered in tasteful old carafes and convenient glasses; pleasing exterior grounds comprising cherished greens, a tidy small swimming-pool and braai facilities

I very much liked the kindness and courteousness of the owner as well as of all his staff; there is absolutely nothing I found fault or should censure.

Olaf’s Guest House is easy to find. Our guest house is conveniently situated on Cape Town's Atlantic Seaboard, right below Signal Hill, between Beach Rd. and Main Rd. in Sea Point. Olaf’s was built back in 1937, which helps to explain our design, spacious interiors, high ceilings and wooden/tiled floors. And has more recently been renovated and enhanced with touches of up-market African style and charm. We’re just a stone’s throw away from the city center of Cape Town. As well as the V&A Waterfront, Cape Town’s shopping Mecca. ... more   less
