“Great place in Capetown”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 May 2012

A really nice boutique hotel (9 rooms) -- good location in Bo-Kaap, a colorful, central neighborhood not far from the waterfront. Easy to park, if you have a car. Rooms are comfortable and spacious. Breakfast is excellent. Perhaps the best feature is the innkeepers, Michel and Ursula -- they had lots of good recommendations on where to eat, what to do (she recommended a moonlight climb to Lion's Head that turned out to be one of the highlights of the trip) and just generally good conversation. The only downsides - a little noisy (there is a muezzin call to prayer at 6 am every day) and no elevator.

Stayed May 2012, travelled with family

Had a lovely stay - Michel and Ursula were wonderfully welcoming and ever so helpful.
Only drawback, a fair amount of street noise (cars, chatter) for those that are picky about this
but we slept very well. Our expectations were fully met.

A 9 room family run trendy, warm and friendly place to stay. The rooms are modern, spacious, light and bright. I spent two days working on a report from my room without that feeling of claustrophobia or the stream of interruptions that can set in, in bigger hotels.

The hotel is well situated, in the Cape Malay Quarter, a quiet area but only a 10 mins stroll to Long St and the centre of Cape Town. The Cape Malay Quarter is a multicultural area, tucked safely into the fold of signal hill filled with brightly coloured houses with an interesting range of small cafes, bars and restaurants within a 5-10 mins walk.

Rouge on Rose is run by mother and son team Ursula and Michel; they always have time to chat and provide first class visitor information and are happy to arrange car hire, taxis and bus trips.

Thanks to Ursula and Michel, Rouge on Rose is special and I look forward to returning.
