“Wonderful place, fabulous hosts!”
Reviewed February 3, 2014

A wonderful place to stay in Cape Town. The rooms are large, light and stylish. The breakfasts fresh and enormous. The location, in Bo Kaap, ideal for walking to restaurants, museums or the waterfront. And Ursula and Michel were the best hosts, helping us to figure out where to go and what to do to make the most of our time there. I hope to return, and wouldn't think of staying anywhere else.

We spent our 4 last nights in South Africa at the Rouge on Rose and were not disappointed with our choice. Well located, walking distance to CBD and V&A but daytime only, at night we always moved with our car. No issues to park our car outside in the street, the room was very spacious and cosy but indeed I would`t recommend it to a "new couple" as the toilet in the room without doors can be a bit awkward for many people. Personally I enjoyed the bathtub so much that I didn't care about it! There is no elevator to access the floors but the staff helped us to carry our luggages upstairs so no issues with this either. We did experienced the middle of the night Mosque call which is very annoying but a pair of earplugs make it go away. The breakfast was very nice, four options to suit everyone, in a nice breakfast room setting, I was just a bit disappointed by the coffee no real espresso. The owners were very very helpful, lots of advices to plan a great Cape Town experience. Overall great experience!

Stylish well-equipped rooms exactly as portrayed in the blurb. But Ursula made it even better than that by her hospitable and helpful approach and a wide choice of interesting breakfasts. Very convenient position in intriguing Bo Kaap district but close to sites of interest and supermarket , coffee bar etc at newly gentrified Cape Quarter. Only 50 Rand to get back after dinner at Victoria Wharf- lots of restaurants to try!

It was a great, short stay in these fabulous rooms with friends and family. It was our last night in Cape Town before flying back home and therefore we did not have enough time to really make use of the big rooms. Nevertheless we enjoyed our stay very much. Great service!

Only one remark for people sensitive to noise: You can hear the muezzin prayers in the distance.

Our stay at the Rouge on Rose made the end of our trip through south africa to the perfect final.
Ursula and Michel are great, very friendly and helpful hosts, the rooms are great and very tasteful decorated and we felt like home. Our next stay in Cape town will be again at the Rouge on Rose - looking forward to it.
