Found by chance for only 1 night, I higlhy recommand to stay there more than I did. It's a peaceful and quiet nest where time can stop once you are laying down on the couch in the garden. I experimented a lot of guest houses and hotels in CapeTown and so far I rank this one 1st. Prices are reasonable.... More

We tried a handful of hotels in Cape Town and generally found great value options. This one was the best with a real luxury feel at a very reasonable price. The staff was very accommodating and helpful and friendly; and this felt very homey. Helpful with early check in and various information. Location is good and I fit in a... More

We stayed at the Villa Zest for 5 nights in early September and were totally satisfied. In particular the staff is both friendly, helpful, and knowlegable regarding Cape Town and the environs. The breakfast was more than adequate. We had a large room away from the street and heard no street sounds. Both Michelle and Bianca were impressive. Hard to... More

The staff at this hotel are lovely, and it is very beautiful. Breakfast was great. We stayed in a basement room. It was nicely decorated but still felt a bit like a basement, so I'd stay on an upper floor next time. The hotel is definitely a perfect place to stay if you want to be in this area, but... More

I have been a frequent traveler for about 15 years now and this has been the most amazing experience I have had regarding service in a hotel. Everyone was just incredibly helpful, warm and willing to resolve any issues. Very impressed by Bianca, who went over and above her duties to ensure we had a pleasant stay, even ordering me... More

I was absolutely stoked when I arrived in Cape Town to this little gem. Fantastic little boutique hotel, located about 1km from the waterfront. We arrived in late after a long trip from Australia, and our plane was delayed, which meant we arrived about 10pm. The wonderful reception staff, checked us in and then called around the local restaurants to... More

Excellent service, good breakfast and cool interior :) the location is very close to the Waterfront and the taxi trip to the center is a very short one. The service has a very personal touch and you feel welcomed by all the staff members :)

My husband and I stayed at Villa Zest and was astonished at how exceptionally friendly the staff were. Their hospitality is what made the few days we stayed there most worth it. The room we stayed in was nicely decorated in modern furniture and was surprised to see an Eero Aarnio chair in the common area near the breakfast tables!... More
