Stayed here twice in early September. The hotel is in a quiet neighbourhood and close to some excellent restaurants. We really enjoyed the old houses, the African décor, the friendly staff, good breakfast and excellent advice about things to do. Room was large and well appointed with very comfy bed!

For African luxury in a quiet yet centrally located comfort house, this is the place. Thank you Keith, Cindy, Louis and Jimmy plus the staff for making our stay so memorable. The best we've ever experienced.

The Villa is located in a quiet residential neighborhood. It is three separate buildings that have been attached. During our 5 day stay, we relaxed many times in one of the two living areas. These areas and the dining room are nicely decorated with South African art and curios. Breakfast is included and it is wonderful! There is complementary port.... More

On the recommendation of a friend, we stayed at African Villa in early September for our 5 day visit to Capetown. The African themed decor in the main rooms was charming and our room itself was large and airy. The staff were beyond helpful. Breakfast was a delight and the whole experience was top notch!!

This is one of my favorite inns in the world. Personal attention from the great hosts, stunning decor, a location which is very near many fine restaurants, and very comfortable rooms with first class amenities made our six day stay a very memorable experience.I can't recommend it highly enough.

Everything other reviewers say is true. Friendly, efficient, attention to detail.... As well as providing somewhere to store your cases between checking out and leaving for the airport, they provide a special safe to store your valuables during that time! Wonderful breakfasts, and complimentary port and sherry in the evenings. I can't fault it.

I highly recommend that you treat yourself to this gem.... More

An African Villa scores top marks for the most important accommodation criteria: location, comfort and service. Behind the residential facade is an intimate and welcoming hotel of a very high standard whose owners/managers are intent on making your stay in Cape Town the best possible experience. Great advice and assistance on the city's fantastic restaurants, tours, taxis, transfers, walks and... More

I think we were upgraded to a larger room and I'm not sure why, but it was large and cozy at the same time. We were here for 5 nights and at no time did we feel anything but totally comfortable. Small touches: we brought lunch in to eat in the outdoor space; the manager on duty immediately brought us... More

My wife and I stayed 5 days in An African Villa and were delighted with the accommodations. The decor was beautiful. The breakfasts were delicious and bountiful. The location was very good for getting to the attractions of Cape Town. What we found most rewarding was the "insider information" that we found so useful as we toured the city. The... More
