St Paul's is a nice friendly guest house which represents excellent value for money in the down town area of Cape Town. The accommodation is basic yet adequate and comfortable.

Both the beautiful old house and it's parking lot are very safe and secure,...

Perfect accommodation in terms of good quality-price balance. Very close to Long Street, its perfect to spend some days in the Cape. The room is very clean, quite and nice and all the staff is very kind and helpful.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We are an affordable b&b in the heart of Cape Town. Minutes away from the most popular streets and attractions, you really can't do better than St. Paul's Guest House. We are located on the hip Bree Street, seconds away from Long Street, but in a more quiet and safer area. R 500/night shared bathroom. R 600/per night en suite for single. Family rates and group rates are available. ... more   less
