Fantastic view of see point. Great Breakfast. Friendly reception. Clean room. Located close to the city centre. The atmosphere in the house seems like home. It does not feel like you are living at a guest house.

I booked this stay for a short city break in Cape Town - and I am so pleased I did. The team are as helpful as one could imagine - and then some. This is a quaint guest house with modern features such as a pool and WiFi. True - you have to be fit to walk up the hill... More

Very pretty guest house, with a fantastic garden. Our room was really large with a lovely bathroom. Breakfast was wonderful with lots of variety. Lots of great restaurants within walking distance. This made a good base for our time in Cape Town.

Everything was excellent, the welcome, the room, the breakfast and the pool. The location is good albeit a 30 minute walk to the waterfront. However the walk was wonderful and safe. I will definitely be coming back.

This hotel was so good that I stayed there again on my return to Cape Town; when it did not disappoint second time round. The rooms are comfortable, the breakfast excellent and a good way to start a day's climb up table mountain. The staff were fabulous, Stefan and Alex could not have been more welcoming and helpful, going out... More

Why would anyone choose to stay in a big hotel when u can stay in a wonderful charming place like Huijs Haerlem. Nice rooms, private patios, pool, cozy public spaces, excellent breakfast and a staff that goes out of their way to make your stay exceptional. Yes there is a school across the street but it's no bother.
