We've online stayed for two nights. This is a very nice hotel, with very friendly personnel and lovely and fully equiped rooms and a very nice breakfast. The communication beforehand was excellent. Thanks

I'm based in Johannesburg and went for a short trip to the Cape and needed a night in a hotel after a work engagement as I couldn't get on to the same day return flight. Because of that I wasn't keen on spending a lot of money. Luckily I came across Rouge on Rose and what a find it was!...

This is a great hotel in the heart of Bo-Kaap and convenient to many of the trendier parts of Cape Town! Lovely interiors which were BIG, clean and very modern.

It doesn't get more friendly and knowledgable than this...think boutique hotel, inspired decor and large airy rooms coupled with a comfy large bed, and the ability to do self catering if required ( we only managed to stretch to coffee!) Their breakfast was delicious too with a nice choice, all freshly cooked and a change from the expected offering. All...

We stayed here at the start of our holiday to Cape Town and were warmly greeted by Ursuala and Michel.
