Large sunny room, very comfortable bed and very clean bathroom/toilet. Also the owner, Peter, was helpuf. I have no reservation to recommend Altona Lodge to the travlers !!!!

Great location near the V&A Waterfront but very affordable, good for people not planning on spending much time in their rooms although they were comfortable and clean.Friendly staff were more than willing to accommodate us and help our needs.

Peter is a friendly and helpful host. Altona is comfortable and is a great base for exploring Cape Town. It is close to restaurants and coffee shops, and It is on a bus rout. Only a few km from the V&A. I will definitely stay there again.

This was my first trip to Cape Town, and I found Altona Lodge to be a perfect base for a week in and around the city. Peter and Wendy were perfect hosts, full of great advice and help. From the cost of the room to the price of the breakfast, it's a bargain. The guest house is just enough outside... More

The lodge is very comfortable, quiet and easy to access via MyCiti buses. One can walk to the Waterfront (this would be a longer walk for some people), soccer stadium, and botanical gardens . It is easy to get to the city centre, Camps bay and Hout Bay from this location via buses. The area is a bit quiet in... More

- 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
