I was in Cape Town for a conference and stayed at this Boutique hotel with my friends. We booked it because of the fantastic revviews we had read on Tripadvisor and booking.com. 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

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

Stayed at the Rouge on Rose for three nights, and it was great! The rooms were pleasantly artistic, very spacious, decent view of SA's colorful homes and hot tub. One of the rooms had built-in kitchen, functioning as an apartment. Breakfast was great - try one of everything on the menu! We met Ursula and Michel who were fantastic with... More

My friend and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Rouge on Rose. Our large suite with self catering facilities was perfect. It enabled us to keep wine (South African , of course) and water in the fridge to have with 'nibbles' at the end of a hard day of sightseeing. The breakfasts are lovely. The staff super friendly and the... More

We only stayed one night, but it was great! Nice central location in the city centre with great character. It is across from a mosque but I found it added to the character. Amazing and spacious room. Very comfortable and functions as an apartment style room....very awesome. The windows open up to the street so you get some nice city... More

I get very irritated when people write "good breakfast" in their reviews. Nobody got on a plane for a breakfast. But here the breakfast must be mentioned & I am not going to spoil the surprise except to say "Order the Omelette". The room is an apartment by Paris standards & good for a longer stay. No views of the... More

The room was spacious and lovely, but cold. Some mats, electric blanket or even a hot water bottle would help at night. I asked for one before leaving for dinner but the guy didn't have a clue what I was talking about. The owners were welcoming and very friendly. The lamp shade was also not working in our bedroom, and... More

Just completed a 9-night stay in this central city "gem" - and it was a direct result of reading other Tripadvisor reviews. I can't say enough about this B&B.....it has it all....from the incredible rooms, to the breakfast (to die for), to the wonderful owners, Ursula and Michel. Thanks to the many suggestions from both, my first visit here was... More

As many people claimed before Rouge on Rose is an excellent boutique hotel with a total of 9 rooms. The rooms I stayed in were shaped in a shallow bowl formation including a freestanding soaker tub, open shower and toilet on one end and the bed, dining table at the other. They also have self-catering units which include a kitchenette... More

I chose this one for a 5-day trip in Cape Town based on the reviews here. The hotel was as wonderful as these reviews. The moment I stepped into the room, I was amazed at how big it all was. It was practically an apartment with a living room and a bedroom. I did think to myself that I could... More
