Location couldn't be better. At the foot of table mountain, ensures views of both bay and plateau. The guest house is typical colonial style house, both inside and outside. The decoration is a perfect match of old style furniture combined with all modern comforts. Family is extremely friendly and easy going and the lady who comes in the morning prepares... More

Lovely guest house close to Table Mountain, Waterfront and the beaches. Had a lovely 3 week stay again and Mark and his girls are very friendly and make you feel at home. The view from the terrace is lovely and there is a splash pool for those summer days which just adds that bit extra. I would recommend to anyone... More

We stayed at Esperanza on New Year's Eve and took an Uber to get to the V & A Waterfront for the New Year's Eve bash. The house is built with high ceilings, trimmed with solid wood and brass decor, and furnished with beautiful antiques. Our host ensured that everything was unloaded from our rental car to be safely stowed... More

Have stayed here for a number of holiday weeks or two weeks over the past few years and the staff are always friendly, the rooms clean and quiet, and the location is unbeatable. It is a much better value than an expensive hotel.

The Esperanza Guesthouse is one of the oldest houses in Cape Town, and it is nice to stay in such a house. Sitting on the covered balcony overlooking the town is really great. The downside is that the interior is also a bit old, and some items may need some 'doing up'. The manager and the staff were very friendly... More
