We liked our stay at House in the Hill. It is cheap and on the same time there's everything you need. The area seemed really safe and parking was always available in front of the house. We stayed in two in room number 5, as it was the only twin-bedroom available. It was clean, there was enough space and everything...

The rooms are equipped with everything you would need, I would definitely recommend it to a group or tourists who is exploring Cape Town, it is very central and close to everywhere. All the staff were so friendly and helpful.

The first thing me and my friend loved about this place was its colorful decor. It was so artistic and creative. The german lady at the reception, I apologise for not recalling her name, was so cooperative and nice. She made us feel totally at home. We switched our room for a bigger one without any hassle. There is a...

The location is excellent, with very good restaurants a few hundred metres away. The waterfront is about a 10 minute walk, and the centre city is easily accessible by share taxi, or by walking. Rooms are comfortable, although small and simple. It’s a safe area. Parking is on the street, but it’s in a quiet no-through street. There are some...

This B&B is ideally located up a quiet side street but within easy walking distance of the V & A waterfront. If you have rented a car and are planning to drop it off in Capetown a few days before departing SA House on the Hill is within twenty minutes of Avis and Hertz offices. You can drop your bags...

Having never been to S.A before we were a little nervous about picking a safe place in a nice location. House on the hill, is walking distance to the city, the waterfront and the beach, green point is a lovely part of the city. The rooms have nice high ceilings, big & comfortable beds and represent great value for money....

Very friendly and helpful manager and staff. Location is just perfect, very close to Waterfront with all the little shops and restaurants and in a safe area. No problem to walk around on your own. Rooms a bit tired, very small bathroom, but has everything you need. Suitable for backpackers or travellers that do not need much luxury. Considering the...

House on the hill is located in the heart of Greenpoint, in a small quiet street. It is 2 minutes walk away from Giovanni's, one of the best italian supermarket and coffee shop of Cape Town! 10-15 minutes walk away from the waterfront, and a few more minutes from the town center! Close to all amenities, with nice big rooms,...

I stayed two nights in the second house (non-bed and breakfast) They were really patient since I had to make a few last minute changes and additions. They can also book a rental car or cab if you need it. Really good customer service Clean, spacious rooms

Spent 2 nights. Absolutely wonderful! Clean, quiet, good bed, nice size room (Room4) Had some good chats with my daughter over a lovely breakfast. Close to stadium, Waterfront and where we wanted to be. I have already decided that this is where we will be staying when we visit Cape Town again! Felt like home! Thanks to everyone at House...
