My review is a bit late and I actually stayed here March of 2020. It feels like the rest of 2020 was a blur though and I was here just a few months ago:). I was traveling solo in Cape Town and decided on Rouge on Rose. I arrived late so couldn’t see much as it was dark, but fell in love with my glorious room! When I awoke in the morning, I was blown away by the amazing views of Bo-Kaap! The mother and son who run the inn were so gracious and helpful. They recommended dinner at Reverie Social Table and I can’t thank them enough-honestly most memorable dinner experience. And that’s coming from a NYC foodie who’s been fortunate to travel the world. There’s plenty to explore near the hotel and it’s convenient to explore other parts of Cape Town. Perfect place to stay all around!

To think 13 months ago we had our first taste of Cape Town and inner city living at your hotel. This time a completely different vibe due to the past lockdown and not that many tourists. Thankfully we could pop into all the restaurants a block away with no bookings. See you and your kind staff next year.

Absolutely blown away! "What a find". Great value for money. Perfect location with easy access to literally everything, lovely ambience, stunning and interestingly stylish decor, impeccably clean with every tiny attention to detail, (including napkins on my delicious continental breakfast tray folded into a rose.🌹) I really cannot give credit enough. The room was huge and welcoming. But most of all, I have to mention the hosts. A special mother and son team who went out of thier way to make me feel at home. (Which I really did) I highly recommend Rogue on Rose for both buisiness and leisure travel.
