The Rose Lodge is a delight A true B & B that is one bloc over and 4 short blocks down the the Hop On Hop Off main stop. You really do not need a car in Cape Town. I saw all the main area attractions and the dollar value is great. Nice breakfast and very helpful staff.Only negative negative...

This place is a bit of a find. My room was spacious, bright in their second location across the street. Parking was right out front and the breakfast was also excellent. All in all, and given the proximity to the centre and the colourful surrounding of Bo-Kaap, I recommend this place wholeheartedly.

If it's your first visit to Cape Town, this is a pretty good location. Close to Greenmarket Square and the mid-town bustle, yet the V & A is walkable. Very clean and thoughtfully arranged accommodation. We happened to arrive on a Friday and were able to take advantage of Bruce's wine and snack reception at fivish. Nice chance to mingle...

Rose Lodge has an ideal location . Comfortable accommodation. It is easy to explore CPT from there . Very close to the city centre - within a walking distance, close to Signal Hill, but located in a quiet area. Bo-Kaap is a unique part of CPT. A must to see.

Great position for access to transport to get to all the spots you need to in Cape Town. Large rooms - great shower and breakfast! Good secure system gives a good feeling regarding security, but there are people in surrounding streets who will bother you - need to pass by quietly!

The location of Rose Lodge is really good. You reach the city centre in a short walk. Bo-Kaap is a great district. You can make breakfast by yourself, everything you need is there. We can recommend it.

Rose Lodge consists of a couple of small townhouses in the old Malay 'Bo-kaap' district. The location is very convenient; just a couple of blocks from downtown. As these are townhouses, the rooms are all different. Mine was fortunately not on the street (can get noisy) and had its own roof deck with great views over downtown. The house that...
