Great location. Quiet neighbourhood. Quaint quarters. Walking distance to plenty of cafes, shops and bars.Basic breakfast included. Didn't have a fridge in the room, but bed was very comfy and bathroom was spacious as was my room.

This guesthouse is are really nice cozy historic house. The house needs new furniture and more up to date equipment. However, the breakfast and staff are superb. The neighborhood is relatively safer than other parts of Cape Town, but tourists need to be watchful.
