This is the kind of accomodation that everybody would like to find in a city: extremely clean, an special sense for the details (breakfast, towels, personal attention...), a wonderful view on the city, safe area, comfortable beds, rooms well equipped, staff very friendly and keen to help. And all that for a very reasonable and affordable price!

Ideal location for exploring Cape Town. Beautiful and safe area. Room was comfortable with all necessary amenities. Loved the views over Cape Town from the rooftop. Loved that you can walk to restaurants in the area at night and not feel unsafe.

Great guesthouse: safe, clean, friendly, centrally located, good deal for your money. The owner will help you with all your needs. In the morning you get a nice breakfast in a basket, which they leave in front of your door. You can eat it on the rooftop, in your bed, or at the main dining table. They will also arrange...

The third stay at this establishment and as per usual, the best and most convenient place in Cape Town. The price cannot be beat and the personal service makes it the perfect place to stay whether on business or for a holiday.

I have stayed in Cape Town for a few days every year since about 1996. I've seen a lot of changes in Cape Town and the Western Cape. Generally, the prices of tourist accommodations have increased far more rapidly than the quality. 17 on Loader is an exception. My wife and i stayed in 2 different rooms and both were...

Unfortunately I only stayed for 3 days, but had a lovely time. After a hard day's work it was great to get "home" every evening and sit in the common lounge and relax. I'm a very critical traveler - I can tell you what's not right about the Cipriani - so when I have no critisism, my friends and colleagues...

After traveling to SA last Christmas we knew we had to go back! We chose this year to stay in the Waterkant area, and 17 on Loader was perfect--close to shops and restaurants, felt safe to walk in the evening, our car was safe parked on the street! The staff was helpful and easy to talk to, without being overbearing...

Was at "17" last November and i can definitely recommend it. I was a week in Cape Town with a good friend of mine and both of us were treated very well. The staff is exceptionally friendly and courteous. I hadn't much contact with the owner but he gave us some useful tips for sightseeing and restaurants. All in all...

After staying at 17 on Loader once before, and having a very enjoyable stay, it was an easy decision to make to book our holiday accommodation at 17 on Loader in Cape Town. Unfortunately, this time around, our stay at 17 on Loader was very disappointing, and service was frankly not up to standard. 1) We were given the wrong...

We stayed in 17 on Loader for the first 6 nights of a recent stay in Cape Town. As with some other reviews, there was nothing special about the Guest House but for what we wanted – a safe, clean base for exploring the city – this place was perfect. We had the downstairs room which had its own separate...
