Olaf's Guest House
Ranked #27 of 156 Cape Town Central B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 31 March 2013

If you are tired of international hotels, all looking alike, then it is great to find a place like Olauf´s guest house. Quiet location, close to a beachpark and the ocean, 10 min. by taxi to Down Town. Freindly staff and owner, good service, would love to come back.

Our stay at Olaf's was very enjoyable and relaxing. Close to transportation (Red-bus), walking distance to nice places to eat. Olaf's breakfasts were very good. Staff was helpful in securing sightseeing schedules, etc.

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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
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
