Very well positioned within walking distance to many tourist attractions. Value for money, staff is very friendly and the self service breakfast is an excellent idea, works well. Bed was comfortable, my only gripe is the shower is a bit of a squeeze.

I like the fact that breakfast is all day, I did not have to wake up at a specific time to eat breakfast. Fruit was available at all times for lazy people like me, who normally do not spend time preparing a proper food.

From the Wale Street annex we could easily walk to any part of Cape Town's centre city. The shared spaces -- front room, kitchen and small open courtyard -- were comfortable and spotless. Written and verbal information from staff was clear and helpful.

The lodge is centrally situated so it is easy to get to all the interesting places in town or the waterfront. A free phone is conveniently placed in the lodge for you to contact the owner or to summon a taxi .A boarding point for the tour buses is also close-by. There are a number of nice restaurants and shops...

Reviewed 5 March 2017

This place is a bit of a find. My room was spacious, bright in their second location across the street. Parking was right out front and the breakfast was also excellent. All in all, and given the proximity to the centre and the colourful surrounding of Bo-Kaap, I recommend this place wholeheartedly.

If it's your first visit to Cape Town, this is a pretty good location. Close to Greenmarket Square and the mid-town bustle, yet the V & A is walkable. Very clean and thoughtfully arranged accommodation. We happened to arrive on a Friday and were able to take advantage of Bruce's wine and snack reception at fivish. Nice chance to mingle...

Rose Lodge has an ideal location . Comfortable accommodation. It is easy to explore CPT from there . Very close to the city centre - within a walking distance, close to Signal Hill, but located in a quiet area. Bo-Kaap is a unique part of CPT. A must to see.
