If you are looking for a place to stay close to the heart of Cape Town you can't go wrong here. Centrally located, neat as a pin and spotless. You can hear other guests coming and going but other than that it is quite quiet, despite being close to a main road. room was nice and big and the bed... More

On recommendations from friends, we spent five nights at Oxford House - large bright room with kitchen essentials, efficient cleaning, wifi; great location - five minutes to shops and restaurants, fifteen minutes walk to V & A; good security - day and night, internal and external.

We had a great stay at Oxford house! we booked on short notice for one night and asked to book in earlier than normal. Staff was very friendly and we had no problems with the early check-in. This is also a very nice location for doing this in the city or seaboard.

Perfectly positioned near the Waterfront as well as to major routes in Cape Town. Easy for "out of towners" to find and base themselves from. The rooms are very nicely furnished, very clean and finished to what I would class as 4 Star. Plenty of quality restaurants within a 5 minute walk. V&A about a 10 minute walk. The staff... More

Optimal position, only 5 minutes form the V&A, good quality/price, convenient for business trips, to have privacy, relax and space to work in the evening. it is an optimal solution to feel "home" while travelling

Spent three nights here while stopping over in Cape Town. The studio apartment was fairly basic, but perfectly nice. Free wireless was much appreciated. It would be helpful to have a hot plate in the kitchenette, though. The building needs better signage – we drove right past here on arrival and had to circle back. Our biggest complaint is the...

Perfect location, close to restaurants and grocery; city center and V&A Waterfront. Clean, spacious and quiet. Couldn't ask for a better experience. Spent 5 nights and considered it home after a day of sightseeing.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for two nights in August. It's in a good location- within walking distance to the city center, near V&A waterfront and very close to some Greenpoint bars and restaurants. The room was spacious and nicely decorated.

We stayed at Oxford House in mid August 2014. The location is great, close to the waterfront and a 20-minute walk to the city centre. Staff nice and helpful; big, spacious room and bathroom and microwave available in tiny kitchenette. It worked very well for us. We would go there again any time.
