Stylish boutique hotel that actually is boutique. Rooms were outstanding, staff were brilliant and location is perfect. If you want somewhere to stay whilst exploring Cape Town for a couple of days then definitely go here.

A real gem close to the centre of Cape Town. I loved the stylish decor. Funky collections of sixties/seventies period pieces displayed on the wall. The staff were so friendly and helpful. Our bedroom overlooked the stunning pool area - it was winter so did not swim although it looked tempting! A great breakfast and a slightly later checkout than... More

We stayed here two nights in July and felt like home. A small chic boutique hotel close to V&A in a tranquil area. The room is spacious, comfy and clean. (We were there in Winter, so it is abit cold though). The communal living room is so cosy and modern. Breakfast is extremely delicious. Staff are very friendly and helpful.... More

I have stayed in various 5star hotels around South Arica but this gem blew my socks off. The rooms were luxurious, clean and very comfortable and breakfast a scrumptious feast. Well done to the helpfull and friendly staff, can only give a 5/5 rating here.

I've been travelling around Asia and Africa for couple of months and I can surely say that Villa Zest is top of the list so far (out of ~60 hotels I was in). Friendly staff, pretty clean, good wifi inside/outside the rooms. Feels like home after so much travelling that I'm doing. Last but not least, very good price for... More

This review is way overdue, I stayed at Villa Zest in October 2014 and absolutely loved it! I felt at home, the service was amazing, friendly staff all over. They made sure that my stay was unforgettable. I could not use the pool because it was chilly so can't comment on that but it was nice to sit outside by... More

We booked two nights in this hotel but ended up adding two more nights. We enjoyed Kaapstad a lot and this hotel was the perfect stay. Room was nice and light with modern decor, just like the rest of the hotel. The outside garden is a wonderful place to hang out and the breakfast was luscious. When it comes to... More
