We stayed at Olaf's for a long weekend and loved every moment. The service was wonderful. Great location. Staff extremely friendly. Clean, quiet rooms. Great breakfast. I can't complain about anything.

We wanted somewhere small but very comfortable when visiting Cape Town. Olaf's was just perfect. Its in a great position a few minutes from the promenade in Sea Point. We had a really friendly welcome and all the staff were wonderful. Our room had a little terrace and was very comfortable. There is a beautiful garden and a small swimming... More

The location is great right in between main road and the water. The staff were very attentive and friendly. The room was large and clean with two bathrooms and two showers. Breakfast was tasty and Sea Point is a great suburb to stay in.

Olaf's guesthouse is clean , neat , well organized and friendly. Breakfast is more than adequate, with a few good options to choose from. Good privacy and rooms are fairly basic but offer all one needs. The guest house is very central and easy to navigate from . Parking is a small issue but is manageable.

Very chilled place with warm, professional and friendly hosts who manage to integrate strangers into a congenial "holiday home". Well suited to European tourists.The owner willingly arranged for extra secure parking to accomodate our needs. An Honesty bar and bowls of fresh fruit immediately earned the trust of guests. Place is perfectly located and secure. Breakfasts are good. Only snags... More

Well situated for Sea Point restaurants and waterfront. Staff great and helpful. Arrange early breakfast for cyclists (Cape Town cycle tour). Rooms large with adequate fittings.Would have been nice if there was a ratings list of restaurants in the area compiled by guests as there are so many some a lot better than others.

Excellent staff, great location and all round very good, security was good and off street parking was not a problem, the best was the cute braai area that we used on the Saturday with some guests. The general attention to detail was very good including the fact that the breakfasts were more than generous with everything and more than expected

This Guesthouse in Seapoint is a perfect spot to explore Cape Town. A lively neighbourhood and close enough to Location of interest. Nice rooms and very friendly staff. Nice restaurants in the area but still quite for a good night sleep. Great value for the money
