Olaf’s Guest House is easy to find. Our guest house is conveniently situated on Cape Town's Atlantic Seaboard, right below Signal Hill, between Beach Rd. and Main Rd. in Sea Point. Olaf’s was built back in ...More 1937, which helps to explain our design, spacious interiors, high ceilings and wooden/tiled floors. And has more recently been renovated and enhanced with touches of up-market African style and charm. We’re just a stone’s throw away from the city center of Cape Town. As well as the V&A Waterfront, Cape Town’s shopping Mecca. Less

warm friendly and a cosy guest house, everything was to my satisfaction apart from the seagulls which are quiet noisy and broke my sleep as they chirp all night. Maybe double sound proof the windows!!

I had a great time in this very welcoming and friendly place. Hazel and the rest of the staff were very welcoming and I will surely return next time I'm in Cape Town. The location is very central and parking was no problem.
