The apartment's location was FANTASTIC and safe. Close to everything. It was big, clean and comfortable. The staff was friendly and the cleaning staff did an AMAZING job. Nice self-serving cafe on site, nice private sitting area with braii. Also a pool. Also nice to have the basics such as salt, pepper, sugar, coffee... available in the kitchen. Reception staff...

The house was large and beautifully furnished. It was spotlessly clean and very well mentained. It lies conveniently for Kloof Street and Long Street. The manager is very friendly and helpful. You even have a view of Table Mountain from the premises.

5 Camp Street had everything I needed for my visit to Cape Town, comfortable, spacious and tasteful accommodation with beautiful views of the mountain. The hosts were warm, friendly and inviting and attended to all my needs. I definitely would use them again especially as it is so central and close to shops, restaurants and places of interest.

Very good guesthouse with excelent staff. Nice rooms with perfect bed. If there also was breakfast, it would be the most perfect place of South Africa! But you can have a good breakfast at "Arnolds" for about R35 p.p.

Three of us stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment and it was so much better than a hotel. We had a spacious lounge and kitchen area as well as a small verandah so were not stuck only in a bedroom. The complementary wifi was appreciated and management/staff always helpful.The only negative would be the local traffic noise - but the... More

We recently stayed in the 3 bed roomed apartment at 5 camp street & were very impressed. The accomodation was spacious, clean and well furnished. The owners and staff were friendly and helpful & the optional welcome pack of basic provisions was a nice touch after a long journey. The location is great, with a short walk to local restaurants...
