I am a study abroad advisor for South Africa and have stayed at the Carmichael to visit our student group who is studying at the University of Cape Town. I picked the guesthouse because it is within walking distance to UCT. We have since recommended this guesthouse to our students' families and our own staff is regularly staying here. The owners, Yves and Valerie, are genuinely warm and hospitable individuals. The guesthouse is charming and impeccably clean. Very satisfying breakfast; delicious coffee. Great Wi-Fi access if you have to do business. This is a tucked-away, quiet oasis that gives you the 'boutique' experience for a great value. It is within reach of any major attraction but away from the hustle and bustle of downtown. In short - a real Gem!
