Good location for reaching all parts of Cape Town and good parking. The building is very historic and we had a triple room and the bedroom was very spacious. Breakfast however does not serve any pork products so no bacon or pork sausage . The menu is halal and the omelettes excellent

My experience at the District Six Guesthouse was absolutely brilliant! The service was of a very high standard and I would say that its an affordable, quality place to stay. More than that, it is central to places like Table Mountain, V&A Waterfront and other places in Cape Town.
