“Great location, ambiance, breakfasts, and value”
Reviewed 30 April 2014

La Rose was a really wonderful choice for our Cape Town lodging. It was very conveniently located for quick cab rides (at night) and easy walks throughout the city. It was also very clean with great breakfasts. The highlight was certainly talking in the mornings to the owners, who were able to give us great tips on visiting Cape Town as well as interesting conversation about the current events in South Africa. It is hard to believe all of this was at such a reasonable price. Highly recommend. We stayed in the Red Room and it was a great view of Table Mountain. I was not at all bothered by the Muslim call to prayer. It did not waken my husband at all and I enjoyed hearing it.

We stayed in one of the smallest rooms but it was nevertheless quite comfortable, stylish decorated and had everything we needed, including a little veranda to chill before going to sleep. The location is great and right in one of the touristic attractions of Cape Town, Bo Kaap. The breakfast room is beautiful and the breakfast was delicious, specially the omelets (and you will never get such good bread again in SA). The manager/owner is extremely friendly, warm and helpful. The "La Rose experience" was a wonderful start of our trip in South Africa and we will for sure book there again the next time we are in Cape Town.

We stayed here for 4 nights in April 14. An absolute delight of a place in a charming neighbourhood full of character and history. We received a warm welcome and all the help we could need to help orientate and plan our short stay in Cape Town.

All the rooms would appear to be quirky - ours, the lilac suite, was gorgeous - spacious, well maintained and with its own little balcony. There is plenty of on street parking if you have a hire car and the area appears to be safe in the evenings. (In fact, whilst I mention it that was our experience throughout the 'City bowl'. Maybe if you were a young girl it might not be advisable to wander around on your own, but as a couple we were perfectly comfortable. Make your own judgement, be careful, but don't necessarily believe all the scare stories.)

Breakfast is really good, and a sociable affair if you want it to be. There is also a pretty communal roof terrace overlooking table mountain and the surrounding district.

Stay somewhere authentic - book up and enjoy! And a special thanks to all the staff from us!

La Rose B&B is a great place to stay in Cape Town. Within walking distance of the town centre and good restaurants. Car parking was easy enough. Yoann the owner/manager has breakfast with guests and I, like many others, found him an excellent conversationalist and helpful host.

So close to all the good restaurants, laundry etc... The hosts and their employees were all very nice. The omelettes for breakfast were very good also. It had a mushroom creaminess to it that I almost asked for another round. Some people might question safety but there's a security guard watching our car at night so no need to worry about break ins. The compound is also locked and they had a system for opening and closing doors. This made me feel secure.

Great place to stay if you don't want a traditional hotel. Beautifully designed, with lovely finishing touches and a great roof terrace to admire the colourful houses of Bo Kaap. We only stayed one night - wish it had been longer.

A place of artistic elegance, full of atmosphere, great taste and on top of it excellent service.
The rooms are wonderful, clean and decorated beautifully, the breakfast room aswell and we enjoyed a lovely and well prepared breakfast every morning.
The rooftop terrasse is a wonderful place to enjoy a cool glass of wine and the view of Cape Town, Signal hill and Table Mountain.
Joan and his wife and staff are all so helpfull and kind.
Perfectly situated close to city centre, Company gardens and the shopping - Green Market, Long street.
We will have to come back soon! Just love it !
