We were a bit cautious after reading the reviews. Location is pretty central to Cape Town, two roads down from Long Street. Parking was easy, in the underground car park and easy from there to access by the lift to the apartments. We chose the Studio apartment, it's like a loft in a New York style, open space. Very stylish... More

A friend and I had booked the studio apartment but due to a change in plans I called Bobby and asked if we could arrive earlier. This was not a problem and Bobby was very helpful and e mailed me instructions on parking and access which all went smoothly. The apartment was very clean and had great views, a spare... More

Terrible service and very poor accommodation - booked for 4 and were to stay for 3 nights in December 2014. After circling for 10 minutes to gain access to the apartment as no clear instructions were provided for key pickup, we finally got assistance from a car park security guard to gain access to the building! Good thing as it... More

We had a great stay here for a couple of days, switching between the studio and the loft. The only issue was the bed that was broken in the studio but I'm sure it was fixed after! Jacuzzi was amazing and great views!

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
