- Very friendly staff - good wlan - accommodation/furniture/style is a little bit old - no heater, so it's a little bit cold in the room in winter - pay attention that you have to share the bathroom/toilet

The lodge is perfect for the Busy Executive who needs a safe, comfortable place to stay while conducting business in Cape Town. One of the most comfortable beds I have slept in for year and I travel around the world. As a busy female executive I find larger Hotels a problem with males interfering etc. In Altona Lodge I felt... More

I really enjoyed my stay there, Peter and his wife really made me feel comfortable, home away from home. They're are really the best, affordable and reasonable. Altona Lodge is the best and you just won't regret it

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

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.
