The Rouge on Rose hotel in Cape Town was amazing. Highly recommended! Excellent cost-benefit choice, perfect location and a very good breakfast. All the staff are avaiable all day long. Cheers to the owners!

My wife and I plus another couple stayed at Rouge on Rose for 5 nights in August 2014. We selected it after a thorough review of several web screening/review services -- such as Trip Advisor and Bookings.com. This boutique hotel was simply fantastic -- with unique decor, spacious rooms (with kitchen facilities inside), wonderful staff, great breakfast and an amazing... More

The decor is devine and playful, the location is central, with quaint colourful buildings surrounding the hotel, putting you in a happy mood the minute you step outside. The breakfast is wonderful, beautifully displayed with healthy options. The owner and staff are extremely helpful... More

Loved the room , breakfast and the kind assistance of our hosts . Five star treatment and four star prices - top pick in Cape Town !! My advise don't stay anywhere else! The only slight issue was the wake up call from the mosque in the morning but even that quite refreshing to my normal alarm call . Thank... More

We rate this place very good among similar style hotels. Our experience was opposite of the last rater except of those things they did like. During the day you can walk. Nobody walks very far at night in downtown. The rooms provide for little internal privacy. Very deco but very clean and spacious.

It was my first visit to South Africa and Cape Town. First impressions do matter but I always try to be objective in all reviews. The location is... More

So sad that you felt that way! The Bo Kaap is in the top 5 destinations to visit in Cape Town. I welcomed you as I do all our guests and yes was rather taken aback when you asked about the safety and after you explained about the men on the corner all I wanted was for you to feel... More

My college age daughter and I stayed 5 nights at Rouge on Rose, our final stop on our recent trip to Africa. I wanted some place special after being on a safari in Botswana and visiting Victoria Falls from Zambia. It certainly met all expectations. It is a darling boutique hotel. Our room had a beautiful view of Signal Hill... More
