Great location and great price. Staff were really friendly and helpful. Would strongly recommend this for a cheap, friendly option to stay in this fabulous city. Very easy access to everything without needing to stay in the expensive areas.

Cherry gave us a friendly welcome and arranged dinner bookings for us and gave us some good ideas for outings. We were pleased to find the area safe... More

Welcoming staff, secure environment, clean, well appointed, comfortable, walking distance to a mall where I purchased a Vodacom SIM card for my iPad. There was a grocery store with South African wine at the mall as well - bonus! Staff at Nine Flowers were flexible with my schedule that was outside the normal breakfast period to ensure I had sustanance... More

My daughter and I had a fabulous time at 9 Flowers! Matthieu was extremely helpful helping us sort out plans - we would take him home to organize our lives if we could! The room and breakfast were both delightful, the location is handy, and all of the staff are fabulous!

We had a triple room with a lovely bath tub wich my daughter used and enjoyed a lot. The room elegant and perfectly clean helped us to rest after long days spent in the nice Cape Town sorroundings. Matthew helped us to arrange our stay and gave us good tips to make of our holiday a great holiday!

I had a wonderful 5 night stay at Nine Flowers and would definitely return. General area: I never felt unsafe and I was travelling alone. That being said, I was often approached and asked for money, but never felt threatened. I also didn't take any silly risks. PROS: Breakfast was lovely, especially the daily specials. FABULOUS location - several restaurants... More

I just spent 3 nights at the Nine Flowers Guest House in Cape Town. The room was beautiful and perfectly clean. The guest house provided high comfort and the staff is very kind. The guest house is located at 10-15 minutes from down town which is very handy for visiting. I strongly recommend this place!

This is a beautiful guest house that has the look and field of a comfortable and airy home with the convenience of a hotel. Although situated in the Cape Town CBD, the house is peaceful and one hardly senses the fact of being in the city. The host, Matthew, is very friendly, has a sincere client focus and really goes...

From the moment we knew we would be in good hands. Located just off Company's Gardens, close to friendly neighbourhood bars and up-market restaurants. Matthew was a welcoming friend, an attentive host, and a great advisor on what to do and see, and what to avoid. And the house décor and design was wonderful - a shaded courtyard, communal room...
