Rouge on Rose is two blocks from CT city centre but also in Bo Kaap with its brightly coloured houses. Ursula and Michel have gone out of their way to create a friendly and luxurious hotel - our room was massive, with separate bedroom, sitting area and bathroom, all spotlessly clean. There's lots of fun in the hotel too -...

Hey...so glad you had a wonderful time here....you are so right nothing is small here...hehehe not even me!....am so glad you enjoyed all the bits of quirkiness, we sure enjoyed thinking them up...as you said the Bo-Kaap is very different...hopefully everyone does the wonderful guided walk from Green market Sq.

Honestly, despite its physIcal beauty, we were a little down when arriving in Cape Town. Just didn't seem like it was going to be as exciting as the bush in Malawi that we had just left. But much to our surprise, R on R helped to change our attitude about and experience of Cape Town completely. First and foremost, Michel...

We spent 4 nights at this wonderful place. Ursula and Michel could not have been more welcoming and helpful in every way. Plenty of advice on how to get around Cape Town and what to see. The rooms were modern and very spacious. It was fantastic to have a small kitchen area and a table and chairs along with a...

We spent a number of nights at this gem of a hotel. Over delivered in every way! Spacious room, lovely view, gourmet breakfasts, helpful staff and management- even the melodic call to prayer added to the quaint and warm ambience. We hope to return!

We had a short stay at the Rouge on Rose but loved every minute of it. We visit Cape Town often and I can truly recommend this hotel as perfect for exploring the city on foot and experiencing some of the local character of the Bo Kaap. We stayed in a deluxe suite which was large in size with all...
