Lovely guest house close to Table Mountain, Waterfront and the beaches. Had a lovely 3 week stay again and Mark and his girls are very friendly and make you feel at home. The view from the terrace is lovely and there is a splash pool for those summer days which just adds that bit extra. I would recommend to anyone... More

We stayed at Esperanza on New Year's Eve and took an Uber to get to the V & A Waterfront for the New Year's Eve bash. The house is built with high ceilings, trimmed with solid wood and brass decor, and furnished with beautiful antiques. Our host ensured that everything was unloaded from our rental car to be safely stowed... More

Have stayed here for a number of holiday weeks or two weeks over the past few years and the staff are always friendly, the rooms clean and quiet, and the location is unbeatable. It is a much better value than an expensive hotel.

I stayed here for two nights and was really impressed. The room I had was spacious and full of beautiful furniture. The bed was extremely comfortable, the breakfast delicious and the location very peaceful and convenient. I thoroughly recommend this place and thank Mark and the team for such a good stay

The hospitality from Mark the owner was friendly and always very helpful and Janet the lady who cleaned and did breakfast was always very friendly. Well situated place not far from Cape Town city centre as well as beaches and the waterfront. I would highly recommend this place... More

The Esperanza Guesthouse is one of the oldest houses in Cape Town, and it is nice to stay in such a house. Sitting on the covered balcony overlooking the town is really great. The downside is that the interior is also a bit old, and some items may need some 'doing up'. The manager and the staff were very friendly... More

I am writing this quite late after my stay but my initial review did not pass through for some reason. The Esperanza Guest House is a beautiful and quant guest house which has this old look over it. One of the lovely ladies (I do not remember which one) even showed me her skills with the thread and needle after... More

Dont get me wrong, this is a nice guest house, but I was a little disappointed. There is only space for parking 2 (small) cars, and 1 of those spaces is for the owner. Street-parking in SA is not advisable. Wifi was available, but I struggled to stay connected consistently. The room that I had was large with a beautiful... More
