The Cape Standard is well positioned to everything in Cape Town and offers partial sea views from some of the rooms. The hotel has been superbly decorated and the modern open deck is perfect for hot summer days. The bedroom has an aircon and TV and a super modern bathroom. The staff are exceptionally friendly and gave us a pick... More

The location is peaceful yet close to good restaurants and shopping. The staff members were very friendly. warm, and accommodating. David, Jonathan, and Moses each helped us out with ordering taxis, providing recommendations plus maps and directions on excellent restaurants. Overall, a great experience.

We stayed at the Cape Standard for 6 nights in March, just as the summer was giving way to Autumn. From start to finish we felt looked after by the very friendly staff. Margot, the manager was extremely helpful and always found the time to recommend interesting things to do and book restaurants. She googles the weather daily, and told... More

Yes, you will find nice pictures on the hompage and also nice reviews (too many too good) in some journals (you will find them in the lobby as well), but reality looks a bit different. Rooms at the groundfloor look nice (wooden floors and nicely decorated) but be carefull if you choose one of them as you will hear everyone... More

Lovely guesthouse with wonderful staff and breakfast(especially if you have your breakfast in their outside patio)! Comfortable beds, good lacation with walking distance to the waterfront. Wonderful,relaxing atmosphere and modern interior. I highly recommend it.

A great small hotel situated very close to the center of the city with modern clean rooms, and most importantly - a really great staff. Unfortunately we didn't book in advance and stayed only one night but even after checking out the next morning, we got the best recommendations and an even bigger help with booking for the next whole...

This place is simply lovely, from decor to location, the attention to detail and attitude of the helpful staff is outstanding. Spotless and chic, yet really comfortable and homely. They have thought of everything I wish we were able to stay longer

I stayed at the Cape Standard in mid December 2014. I chose this hotel largely based on the positive reviews that I read on Tripadvisor. We were looking for something reasonable and located close to Green Point. The hotel itself is very nice, with clean, modern rooms. The common areas are very modern and there is a nice vibe. I...
