“Great value, extremely friendly and helpful staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

We had a fabulous stay at the Cape Standard in September 2013; the highlight of our stay was the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff, who were so accomodating with organising transfers, suggesting day trips, recommending restaurants etc. The rooms were large, clean and modern with wifi access throughout. We stayed with a group of friends and we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, and would recommend the Cape Standard to anyone planning a visit to Cape Town.

This was the 4th place we stayed in during our time in Cape Town. Very friendly and accommodating staff. The breakfast was good and always fresh. The location is very secure, located on within a culdesac and parking was right out front. The rooms are very nice and comfortable, also very spacious. I would highly recommend this hotel to any person traveling to Cape Town. One more thing, this place is located in Sea Point and within walking distance of the "main road" where there are alot of places to eat, not too far from downtown, 5 minutes drive from the V&A and 15 minutes drive from table mountain.

what can I say? great room, great food. great location, great hosts and a great neighborhood cat! David and Margot are very knowledgeable not only about Cape Town, but other areas of South Africa as well. The neighborhood is quiet, making for a good nights sleep. We will look forward to staying here again in the near future. Annemarie and Mark Couture

Thanks to David, Margot and Bernard - we had an great stay without any complains!!
The rooms where stylish and comfortable, breakfast was just great (we´ve missed Bernards Omelet after we left Cape Town! ;) ) And Margot was just great in planning our stay with a lot of activities!! Thanks for that!
The surrounding is perfect for shopping, sightseeing and everything else!!
We´ll be back!! :)

We were in Cape Town for 3 days and David, Margot and the team were fabulous. From great suggestions about what to see, the BEST restaurants and just making our stay seamless. Cape Standard is a very cool and chilled place- very chic and stylish. Being in a no through road meant that it was always quiet and a good night sleep guaranteed.
Nothing was too difficult for the staff. This is a wonderful place to base yourself in Cape Town.

We stayed three nights. It was a lovely walking distance from the harbor and from lots of shops, in a calm, safe and pretty neighborhood. David and his staff were fantastic hosts, very friendly and smiley. We could have breakfast outside on the deck though it was winter. There is a gorgeous little swimming pool, though unfortunately it was not open! Beautiful warm and simple design. We especially loved the framed drawings upstairs in the corridor! We had our baby with us and felt very welcomed.

I stayed in the Cape Standard for a couple of weeks for a business trip to Cape Town. As it was a long stay I was looking for something a little different to the typical business orientated hotels. The place is very nicely decorated, as you can see from the photos, and the staff/owners very friendly and helpful. Would recommend to all.
