Stayed at Mountview this past weekend as we were attending the John Legend concert in Cape Town. We arrived late on Friday night and there is a simple procedure to get in, that they have in place for guests who arrive late. There is only street parking, which made us a little nervous as we live in Johannesburg and you... More

The owner, Joe and his wonderful dog Beaumont really know how to look after you. There are 6 rooms and the two we have stayed in have been very... More

We stayed here in late July for five nights, during low season for tourism. The location was great, close to some great restaurants just a block away. If you get a chance go to La Boheme, just a block down. The area was also a lot safer than I expected given the horror stories I had heard about South Africa.... More

A conveniently located central base, ideal when visiting Cape Town for business trips. The atmosphere is calm and quiet, and the rooms clean and comfortable. Staff are quick, friendly and efficient, and breakfast healthy and generous. We will definitely stay here again.

First I thought I should have stayed closer to the city center - in the end it was the perfect location. I am an alone female traveller and the location was excellent. Within 10 minutes you are where ever you want to be: in the City Center; the Waterfront; at the beach. There are several bus lines within 5 minutes... More
