Visited for our honeymoon in December 2014 and would give the place six stars if possible. Staff was welcoming and rooms were spacious. Location was perfect - restaurants within walking distance and all attractions just a short cab ride away. Would definitely recommend for anyone looking for a great base for exploring Cape Town and the surrounding area. Easy to... More

The Villa is a very nice guesthouse which is managed very well and good organized. Rooms are clean and okay and the area around the house is safe and not loud. Breakfast is on average level. We definetely will come back and we hope to see something "new".

This is a smaller bed and breakfast type hotel, cozy and clean with a nice boutique feel. It's in a great part of town, and the husband and wife team that own/run this place are so sweet. They...

An African Villa is a beautiful little hotel in a nice walking neighborhood featuring good dining and a convenient location. Our room had a small veranda overlooking the courtyard with a view of Table Mountain. All the rooms are nicely appointed with native art work as are the communal areas. The morning breakfast is an ample spread taken either outside... More

But An African Villa turned what could have been nothing but an in and out visit to a clinic to a mini-vacation. The rooms AND "sitting rooms" dressed in beautiful, unique decor, the bathroom equipped with delightful naturally scented soap, shampoo and... More

Stayed here for 4 nights. Really comfortable, charming & spacious rooms, lovely quiet but central location, and excellent & friendly service. The breakfast was simply outstanding, one of the best I have eaten anywhere. The owner was incredibly helpful, with tips/maps etc to make our stay better. Quiet and relaxed hotel, intimate, and very safe. I own a hotel, so... More
