#54 of 164 B&Bs / Inns in Cape Town Central
Built at the turn of the century and nestling in a quiet cul-de-sac at the foot of Signal Hill in Green Point. This amazing Guest House is set in a sub-tropical walled garden in the heart of urban Cape Town. Jambo is centrally located and a safe 15 minute walk to the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront; while Green Point’s excellent trendy restaurants are only 5 minutes away. The city centre is 4 minutes drive.

The guesthouse is the longtime house of a graceful couple who have very interesting stories to tell about their multicultural adventures. Every part of the house is uniquely decorated with an artistic taste, which offers a very different experience than impersonal hotel spaces. You can...More

We stayed with Barry and Mina for a little under two weeks. It was an absolute treat: our hosts were very accommodating, going as far as to organise our trips, get an Uber for us or book a table at a restaurant. At our arrival...More
