La Rose Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #27 of 156 Cape Town Central B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 8 November 2013

Our first family trip and it was to see The Mother City! La Rose was the most comfortable home away from home! Travelling with kids is always no joke! But Yohann & his wife were the best hosts and made us feel extremely welcome and at ease! They were very knowledgeable, warm and friendly giving us the best activities and places to frequent that were kid friendly!

Breakfast was always a highlight and they came to chat with us and the food is something write home about :) The V & A Waterfront was about 15 minutes away within walking distance! From all the beautiful sites we saw, we would most definately recommend La Rose! We explored Cape Town City on foot and enjoyed the sites! We also made use of the "Red Bus"!

I have been raving about La Rose to all my friends & family since we arrived! We look forward to our stay next year! We have decided to make La Rose B&B our new Cape Town home!

Big Thank you to all from La Rose B&B!!

Regards,
Lynton

Room Tip: If you are travelling with kids, the Lilac Suite is best! There is no noise what so ever! The rooms...

My husband and I stayed at La Rose for 4 night. We chose this place for its location, the Moroccan decor and the affordable price!
And we were not disappointed!
La rose is centrally located i.e around 3-5min walk to Long Street and 25-30 mins walks to the V&A waterfront through Robben Museum.
The Red city tour bus also stops about 5 mins walks from the guesthouse.
the area is pretty safe for walking during the day but do take taxi at night regardless of wherever you stay in Cape town.
Yohann, the guesthouse owner was very helpful and full of good advices on food, tour etc. He also arranged an airport taxi transfer for our arrival to cape town.

We stayed in Rose room which was at the front of the house. It was slightly noisy from the traffic noise in the morning but it was very convenient for getting in and out especially with the luggages!
The room was clean and comfortable with good facilities i.e plenty of hot water, very good shower, safe, TV etc. Tea and coffee making facilities were great and refilled daily but no fridge!
Free Wifi was reliable and was no problem accessing from the room.
The breakfast was simple but plentiful with hot cooked eggs of your choices. We love the yummy freshly homemade muffins!
It was a security guard looking after the place at night.

We love the synergy of Yohann (the guesthouse owner) with his guests over breakfast.
It was such a nice personal touch that one cannot get from the big fancy hotel!

We spent three nights at La Rose. It was the perfect base for our Cape Town trip. Yohann was very knowledgeable and friendly and gave us good directions. We spent most of our days exploring the city but it was always nice to come back to the bed and breakfast. It is within walking distance (10-15 min) to the V&A Waterfront and to several places to eat, as well as within a couple blocks of a Hop On Hop Off bus stop. I chose La Rose mostly for its location in the colorful Bo' Kaap neighborhood and wasn't disappointed.

This place has a lot of positives so I'll start with those:
Very friendly welcome with a lot of good advice of where to eat in particular.
Excellent wifi in rooms, as fast as home.
Lovely breakfast spread with eggs, freshly baked muffins, bread, yoghurt and cereals.
Spotlessly clean.
Good location for greenmarket square and long street.
About 30 mins walks from V&A (do not walk in the dark though) or short hop in taxi.
A security guard who patrols around the front of this and the opposite B&B so you feel safer.
Quite reasonably priced.
There is an associated taxi service you can call to take you anywhere at night when you can't walk around.

Cons - the main reason I could not give it more stars despite the positives was the noise issues from early morning onwards that disturbed my sleep very badly.
At 4am you can hear the call to prayer but I slept again after this however from 7am onwards there is non stop is clatter of getting the breakfast ready followed by the noise of all the people chattering, laughing, their children crying and screaming from 7.30-9.30am. If you are a light sleeper there was no way to sleep through this. I could even hear the content of the conversations from my room. This was a minor irritation most days as I planned to wake up only 45mins after the noise cacophany began anyway but the last day I really wanted a bit of a lie in as had 30 hours of travelling afterwards but this was not possible. I could not wear earplugs as would have risked missing my alarm. If you are an early riser and do not want to lie in past 7am this will not trouble you. I like to relax a bit more on holiday and this was not possible here unfortunately.

The location of this B&B is ideal for walking to everywhere in Cape Town. The staff were all friendly and welcoming and the room we had was nice (the yellow room). The breakfast was freshly cooked to order and was very good. A very good value place to stay in central Cape Town.
My only criticism was that there was some noise in the mornings from people moving around.

We stayed at La Rose for 3 nights at the beginning of our SA trip. The staff were very welcoming and friendly and the room was nice. A freshly cooked breakfast every morning in a very pretty courtyard sets you up for the day. The rooftop terrace has a great view of Table Mountain.
The location in Bo Kaap meant that we could walk all over the city without having to rely on public transport or taxis.
