Rouge on Rose is definitely more of a boutique hotel than a bed and breakfast. Our room (#102) was spacious and comfortable, with a number of small details like a power strip that took all kinds of international plugs. The decor is clean and simple with some lovely local design elements. Breakfast is cooked to order and delicious! The hospitality... More

My husband and I enjoyed Ursula and Michel's kind hospitality and our room was truly special. They are great hosts and very knowledgable and helpful. The room was huge and had an art-deco theme which was quite whimsical, but also very comfortable. They also offer a wonderfully tasty breakfast selection. We would definitely recommend Rouge on Rose to anyone.

Ursula is an extraordinary host. The rooms are excellent, very large and tastefully decorated. Breakfast is out of this world because the menu is fusion fresh and dishes are tasty, professionally prepared and presented. The arty ambiance throughout the property makes the stay complete. Close to de Waterkant and the V&A waterfront. Easy access to airport.

The hotel is absolutely lovely. We stayed in room 202 which was amazing! The breakfast was delicious! Ursula & Michele were so friendly & helpful, nothing was too much trouble. Short walk to long street with shops and restaurants. Also where the hop on hop off bus goes from. About 20-30mins taxi from the airport which didn't cost a lot.... More

Warm welcome and super staff. Great spot whilst on business in the Cape. Long street's funky restaurants are close enough to drive for dinner. The Bo-Kaap, is in the traditional Muslim sector of the city so you don't need a wake up call with the muezzin's calls to prayer.

Fabulous service & welcome from Ursula & all her team. Lovely comfortable room, great breakfast & helpful sightseeing tips. Hope to return!! Take ear plugs if noise sensitive, for the 4am mosque, but it adds to the atmosphere.

Ursula took fabulous care of us during our South African visit! We felt like family was watching out for us, anticipating our every need. We enjoyed so many more of the sights and attractions around this beautiful city than we would have otherwise. The restaurant recommendations were spot on! Our stay at Rouge on Rose was perfection!
