The walden is a grand old lady. We love the place and it is well located. Very close to all the tourist attractions. Close walk to the local restaurant. The staff are friendly and gave us some good advice. We willi be back.

Great location[easy walking to city, shops and restaurants], Nice and beautiful Victoria building, White wall's room, Simple deco and clean, great service & breakfast = THE WALDEN HOUSE

Facilities simply but great & needed as like Internet hookup, a refrigerator, television, and laundry service. The room had enough room for beautiful couch, chair and the most importance the double bed are so comfortable!

The staff very friendly and helpful. They provided simple but great breakfast, good and useful information for us to visit while we first-time in cape town. The most importance things are...... they are so friendly and charming!

Highly recommended !

Have stayed at Walden House a number of times and always have a most enjoyable stay. Nice and central and a range of restaurants in walking distance. Rooms are well equipped and airy and a delicious breakfast is served. Karen and her team run a good show and always look forward to staying there

We stayed in Walden House three nights on our honeymoon. They reserved for us the suite, excellent accommodation with king size bed, very nice bathroom with both shower and bathtube, comfortable wardrobe. Perfect location to visit Table Mountain, just at a 5 minutes by car from the V&A Waterfront. Nice and helpful staff. Hearty breakfast, both cooked and continental. Complimentary bottle of sparkling wine to celebrate our wedding. Complimentary wi-fi connection and useful pc in the hall. Definitely a place to stay in Cape Town!
