We felt welcome and safe from the moment we arrived (even though we were late) until we set off after a sumptuous breakfast beside the pool.... Rooms were beautiful (both our guest room and the public living rooms/areas); the view exceptional; the service beyond excellent! Sorry it was only for one night before venturing down the Cape... with great recommnedations... More

I am still sitting beside the pool under the trees at Huijs Haerlem waiting for our taxi to the airport. HHS is lovely. Beautiful gardens, warm welcome and an establishment that runs smoothly. The breakfasts by the pool are to die for, the rooms have great decor, there are plenty of public spaces. I thought we might be a bit... More

The stax st thid house made our stay in Capetown perfect. We love the pool and the rooms which have an excellent style. We could see the ocean from our rooms. The owner is very friendly and served us a great breakfast. We will come again.

I booked this guest house because it was well within my budget. I worried slightly that it was a little out the way, but I shouldn't have worried at all - it is an easy 40 minute walk to the V&A Waterfront, and there is a bus stop within a 5 minute walk that gets you everywhere you need to... More

Stayed at Huis Haerlem while attending the Mining Indaba 2014 in Cape Town. Wonderful view, nice facilities and superb service. Breakfast was great. Regret not having been able to spend more time there just relaxing.

I was overwhelmed by the interior, antique furniture and ornaments, seldom see that anymore. Overall, the service, food and room were excellent. Would definitely recommend the guesthouse to my friends.

We have stayed in Huis Haerlem a couple of times now, using it as our arrival or departure point when flying in/out of Cape Town. It has always been a very welcome experience: the place itself is ideal, and the owner and staff are even better. They are always willing to help you find the right things to do and... More

Everything advertised is there, no flaws on the proposed accomodation! decor is fantastic, just the opposite of the modern design stuff we are used to these days, but very nice! Alex is a fantastic host, he'll help you with anything! thank you!

We have stayed here three times, (once on my own). All rooms are elegant and some have a beautiful sea view from high up. Overseas guests tend to return every year, some for two months! Johan is the kindest owner I know. Try his scrambled eggs at breakfast! Excellent pool area and garden, Transport available now by bus on the... More
