Excellent location and guesthouse to stay in Cape Town. Emmy was wonderful; she practically planned my sightseeing excursions and I am so greatful for her assistance. 5 Camp is more than a guesthouse. The units are actually apartments with furniture and fixtures that one would find in their own home. Hence, I felt like I was at home and a... More

5 Camp Street was a welcome sanctuary after a month of staying in hotels. Beautifully clean and fresh new bathrooms with fluffy white towels. Comfortable home from home with crisp bed linen, well equipped kitchen and private patio. Safe and secure and well located for Table mountain, Yindee Thai restaurant around the corner and Baccini's pizzeria- a must!! Easy access... More

Simply excellent guest house. We stayed in Unit 3, which was like a luxurious home. it is delightful that the place feels like a well kept home rather than an anonymous hotel room, sterile and dull. Full kitchen, spacious living room, massive bedroom with big comfy bed, lots of wardrobe and storage space, ample bathroom. Air conditioning, hairdryer, kettle, cooker,... More
