The hotel is one street back from the main road in a quiet side street. It is within easy walking distance to V&A and CT centre. We had a lovely spacious room, big comfortable bed. The two negatives for us was the AC was above the bed and whatever setting it was on it always blew directly onto us. Secondly... More

It is very well decorated, there's a lovely garden with swimming pool and sun loungers. The staff is really really good and friendly. From the girls at reception always helpful and offering good tips to... More

Villa Zest is an absolutely beautiful boutique hotel within a stone's throw of the city centre. The rooms and communal areas are beautifully decorated and the service was outstanding - we ordered Bloody Mary's in the middle of the night and our host was at our door in 20 minutes. Only let down is that the room we were in... More

Was here Nov. In time for the cape town beer festival - amazing. Super funky and chilled out atmosphere. The hostess was delightful and took care of my work colleagues and myself with great expertise. We chilled out in the backyard well into the evening and felt quite at home. Highly recommend.

A lovely, contemporary hotel with unbelievably focussed and welcoming staff. Villa Zest is a fantastic boutique hotel with a real luxury atmosphere at a sensible rate. The room we stayed in was attractively decorated with attention to detail.

I liked how helpful everyone was. I enjoyed the unique sort of retro style. Toilet has a glass door and there isn't a door for the bathroom, only a curtain. Shower is in a bathtub, no shower curtain so water falls out onto the floor. No cupboards to keep your luggage. Room was incomplete upon arrival, on the next day... More

Both myself and husband stayed here for 4 days in December whilst visiting Cape Town. Boutique Hotel was lovely, staff were very friendly and helpful. No problems whatsoever. Only slight thing was the noise from construction work outside which could not be helped. Other than that would highly recommend this hotel.

Was visiting Cape Town for a conference. This place is fantastic! Small boutique hotel. Rooms are very comfortable. Fantastic and friendly service from all the staff. Gourmet breakfast was outstanding and included. Great suggestions from staff (including Bianca and Michelle) on restaurants and other things to do in the area. Highly recommend the Villa Zest!

This is a super trendy little hotel bang in the middle of Cape Town. The hotel was recommended by friends and we could not have been more pleased, clean, friendly, great facilities, trendy and a brilliant breakfast - unbelievably served until 12 every day.
