Had an amazing time. Loft beat all expectations. Bobby was the perfect host. Close to everything we required and really enjoyed the vibe in Bree street. Loads of trendy spots and great restaurants in the area. Will definitely go back as soon as we can.

Together with my boyfriend we stayed in the Luxury Studio and everything was great! The loft is situated at a very central location and walking distance to the city centre. I had contact with Bobby by email, a friendly man who arranged everything perfectly. Airport transfer is included which of course is very convenient. Appartment is clean, modern, has a... More

To say I was pleasantly surprised by this loft would be an understatement - it's impossible to capture its magnificence in photos... It's a triple story open plan loft with an industrial feel to it. There are no doors (except the front and leading out to the balcony) so privacy within the apartment is managed by way of curtains on... More

My husband and I decided to spend the final few days of our trip in South Africa in the Penthouse loft at Manhattan as a treat to ourselves (largely because of the hot tub on the balcony)! Communication between Bobby F and ourselves before arrival was great and he arranged for an employee to meet us at the loft and... More

We have had the opertunity to stay at both the penthouse and the loft. Both are truly amazing in their own way. The hospitality from Bobby was also great. The location of Manhattan Lofts is in the heart of Capetown and the views are amazing. We had some good bonding time, great for romantic getaways. Will definately go back there... More

The penthouse is amazing! The photos on the website do not do it justice. The under floor heating makes it cosy and warm in winter, the large bath is ultra-relaxing, the jacuzzi comes with a fantastic view of Table Mountain and the shower is definitely one everyone would like in their home. I would recommend this penthouse to anyone visiting... More

We had the priviledge of staying at the loft over the Easter weekend. It was an amazing experience. I cannot re-itterate how powerful the views are. On arrival we found the apartment in perfect running order and extremely clean. The owner/agent Bobby was very welcoming and recommended some great spots in town. We took his advice and were lucky enough... More

Just as advertised, I rate this place highly.. Extremely pleased with my stay.. The communication from Bobby in advance of and during my stay to arrange groceries, local bars and restaurants was an added bonus.. The views from apartment are stunning whatever the time of day.. Can't wait to get back to CT and re-book this apartment..
