We recently stayed at Cape Standard for a full week. The staff were amazing - very professional & nothing was too much trouble. It's quite a walk to the City Bowl or V & A Waterfront, so best to hire a car. Pleasant gardens and surroundings in a safe area.

I stayed only 1 night. This hotel doesn't look much from the outside but you will be suprised. It's beautiful, very clean, has lovely breakfast and great staff too. Nice neighbourhood as well, it wasn't difficult to find from the waterfront. My room was quite cosy though I could hear people arriving or walking past my door, the bed very... More

Even if we did only stay for 1 night, we enjoyed the hospitality of the staff. The hotel and rooms are well designed and comfortable. Also important to mention the highly convenient and spacy showers. The location is well accessible via MyCity, but also with car or by foot. Come back.

The Cape Standard guest house is situated in Green point area which is a good starting point to explore Cape town. Nearby all the main attractions. The main asset of the guest house is its friendly staff with always helpful manager Margot. I needed a dentist and she immediately called a friend of a friend and got me the appointment... More

Nice small hotel in a wonderful zone of Cape Town. Perfect stay to visit Cape Town and the Cape Region. Very close to Waterfront and not far from the City center but enough far away from the crown zone. Personnel is very friendly-

Fresh baked rolls each morning was great. Great advice on... More
