We stayed three nights at Rouge on Rose in February and were looked after so well by the Michel and the team. The hotel is in a great location, has spacious and very comfortable rooms and an excellent breakfast. As two women travelling our own he offered us really good security advice, as well as helping us with restaurant reservations...

Rouge on Rose was the perfect boutique hotel in Cape Town. Excellent service. The staff went above and beyond to make my stay comfortable. They had great recommendations on where to go, times and as a single woman traveling alone some appreciated safety tips. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a nice place in the city.

I stayed with my wife for almost a week in this hotel. We were encouraged to book it by the online reviews of other guests and they weren't proven wrong!

Michel and Ursula were the perfect hosts. They provided us with restaurant and activity recommendations. They were an immense help in organizing our shark-diving trip after several cancellations due to water/shark conditions (thank you!!). Hotel was up-to-date and kept spotlessly clean. Every night when we returned we actually remarked, "this place just smells so good". Hot breakfast every morning was...

Great location, close to Bree street and only a 10 minute walk to Green market square. My suit (303) was very spatious, neat and clean, it is more or less a fully equipped hotel room with a kitchenette. It also had these great french doors with a view to Lions head/Signal Hill.
