We stayed here two nights. Altona is located near the main street with lots of trendy eating establishments and easy walking distance to the the waterfront. Yet in a quiet neighborhood. Wendy, Peter and the others who run this place are friendly and professional. . The rooms are small, but prices are very reasonable. Peters omelets are to die for.

Altona is unfussy, neat and has a homely, welcoming feel to it. Very central-close to City bus stops and to the new 'hop on, hop off bus'. I found this a practical option for me to get to the CTCC by bus and to explore Cape Town. Both Peter and Wendy very helpful and convivial.

Great place to stay in and out of season, its a home away from home. Very peaceful and accessible to main facilities which is a very important aspect of my part time schooling. I have and will continue to recommend this B&B. Great Work! - Thabang

Very friendly and helpful personell. Beds very comfortable and clean environment. Great location. Very noisy, could here every movement. It would be nice to have fridge and coffee making facilities in rooms. I think its a bit misleading to advertise the property as anything else but a slight upgrade from a hostel. Minimal personal space in the kitchen as always... More

A perfect lodge for our quick trip to Cape Town. Excellent location near the waterfront, comfortable room, and a fine breakfast. Our hosts were very helpful with airport transfers and getting around. A great value for a low price.

This is a wonderful place to stay if you want to feel at home. The rooms are well appointed, very clean and have the most comfortable beds. The staff is incredible and you feel like a part of the family rather than a regular guest. You also don't feel like a tourist staying in Green Point. You can have a... More

A very clean and cosy place to stay with good breakfast, wifi, hot water etc that you would expect, but above other places in this range because of the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff! Great location too.
