Never had a greater welcome than at Altona Lodge. They help you with everything. They are very kind. Great service. The beds are good and the linnen is clean. The breakfast is great. Thanks Peter, Wendy and Ansi!

I couldn't quite believe that this would be as good a deal as it appeared on the booking website - such a low price! So I read all the reviews, and as they were extremely positive, booked. They were right. Altona Lodge is in a great location, just near the MyCiti bus routes, very near the stadium and within daylight... More

Altona lodge is a very affordable place to stay and the quality of everything is above and beyond! It is very secure and centrally located, just minutes from the V&A waterfront. The staff are very friendly and easy going and helped us with anything we needed. The wifi is fast and available in all the rooms. Breakfasts aren't free but... More

Really enjoyed my stay, the place was exactly what I hope for and more. Typical Cape Town style house and narrow streets. Very convenient for those that want to make use to public transport and close to the V&A Waterfront. Very friendly people and clean rooms. I will definitely go stay there again with my next trip to Cape Town.

This was a perfect way to begin our first visit to Cape Town. The kind staff were accommodating to all our special requests from early check-in, electric adapters, taxis, etc. The room and bathrooms were very clean and comfortable. The abundant and delicious breakfast was beyond what we expected. I wish I had planned to stay there more nights and... More

Simply amazing value. One of the nicest places I have ever stayed. Beautiful comfortable rooms, friendly helpful staff, and reasonable priced add-on options including laundry and breakfast. Highly recommended.

The hosts were very friendly and inviting. Made us feel like we were home. The room was very neat and tidy and comfortable. Bathrooms were clean. Will definitely stay here again. The location is perfect. Walking distance to a wide choice of restaurants and bars and stones throw away from the stadium and waterfront.
