“Small hotel, superb hospitality & perfectly located”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2012 via mobile

We spent six perfect nights in this excellent small hotel run by Ursula And Michel. Preceding reviews accurately describe the great rooms, fantastic breakfasts and excellent location close to restaurants, bars and 15 minute walk to the convention centre. Both Ursula and Michel are great hosts, and also your perfect travel guides with lots of great ideas for places to eat and visit. We also found Rouge on Rose has excellent access of the N1 and N2 freeway for our various trips out of the city. Highly recommended and we would always make this our first choice when staying in Cape Town. Alex & Jen

We highly recommend the Rouge on Rose Boutique Hotel. An incredible personalized welcome, an incredible staff who gave us priceless advices (Ursula & Michel). The rooms are spacious & proper. We couldn't have dreamt more beautiful for a honeymoon start!

Great staff - we forgot several things in the room and they simply kept it for us as well as offering to mail them back. Also, immediately changed the TV channels so we could watch the rugby! They truly feel like they care personally for every guest.

Will recommend this place to anyone going to Cape Town. I stayed in some other hotel close by which was much more expensive and not as good as Rouge on Rose (this was a large chain hotel...).

Loved the large, clean room with kitchen and lounge! Like your own apartment with daily cleaning. Perfect.

I recently had the great pleasure of staying at Rouge on Rose for the weekend.
This is a delightful little gem in the heart of Cape Town's Bo Kaap area.
It is home to two of the most warm and accommodating hosts, the best French toast I've ever eaten and serene, mood-enhancing decor and room layouts. A simple thing like a fresh rose in your bedroom makes such a difference! I personally loved the sound of the call to prayer from a nearby mosque and the beautiful views of the colourful Bo Kaap homes. I will certainly recommend this place and I'll definitely be back.

We had a pleasant stay for three night an days at the rouge on rose hotel in August 2012 - at the end of our South Africa-journey.

The R-o-R-Hotel at Cape Town is a stylish hotel at the Bo-Kaap district faced to the colourful cap-malayan houses. A view restaurants are just a block away, if you want you can walk to the Green Market Square or the Long Street just in a view minutes.

Ursula an Michel help in any situation - i.e. tipps for an excursion, a quick reservation in a restaurant, .... They have tactfull staff.

The breakfast is unique and really wonderful.

And: we enjoyed having a shower with one of the little single-lever mixer taps in africa - we missed them so during our round trip.

Great room, great breakfasts, wonderful setting - so convenient to be able to stroll down to the Cape Town International Conference Centre and back, while enjoying the spicyness of the Cape Town city centre and its people, as well as the lovely views of Signal Hill and Table Mountain. It was also really good to wake up to the Call to Prayer from the nearby mosque every morning, ringing out over the bustling city, and to hear the noon gun. I'd definitely recommend Rouge on Rose to any conference delegates who want to get a feel for the real Cape Town, while staying in relative luxury.

Room Tip: I stayed on the first floor, in the self-catering suite. It was really comfortable and luxurious - o...

My sister and I spent three nights at the end of June 2012 at Rouge on Rose. Ursula and Michele were extremely hospitable. We greatly enjoyed our stay. Our room was on the third floor and very spacious. The room was a bit dark and chilly but that's winter in Cape Town for you. The breakfast every morning was fantastic. One morning we left early and asked for breakfast in our room. It was the most amazing picnic basket filled with homemade bread, croissants, french press coffee, cheese, granola, and yogurt. The location of the hotel is convenient for sightseeing with a hop on-hop off bus stop nearby. There are many restaurants and bars within walking distance. Ursula also recommended that we tour Cape Point and the winelands with a woman named Myrtle who was fantastic. I would absolutely recommend booking a day or two with Myrtle for a private tour of areas that you need a car to reach. I would stay again!
