“A wonderful stay in Bo-Kaap”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2014

My husband and I enjoyed Ursula and Michel's kind hospitality and our room was truly special. They are great hosts and very knowledgable and helpful. The room was huge and had an art-deco theme which was quite whimsical, but also very comfortable. They also offer a wonderfully tasty breakfast selection. We would definitely recommend Rouge on Rose to anyone.

Ursula is an extraordinary host. The rooms are excellent, very large and tastefully decorated. Breakfast is out of this world because the menu is fusion fresh and dishes are tasty, professionally prepared and presented. The arty ambiance throughout the property makes the stay complete. Close to de Waterkant and the V&A waterfront. Easy access to airport.

Room Tip: All rooms are good.

Rouge on Rose is a pearl. The Mother who owns and keeps the place together with her son Michel are absolutely exceptional in their kindness and helpfulness. You truly feel you are visiting friends and staying in their house. They help you with all arrangements, discuss your travelling plans with you and give you hints and advice, organise your transportation, and they even fixed me a night in another hotel after I had been to the winelands and needed accomodation only for one night and Rouge on rose was full (and they arranged for me to get the same rate in the other hotel as the one I had had at Rouge!). The rooms are very spacious and particularly elegant in their simple style: mine had five windows, a huge bathroom with bath and shower. Yet the price is very affordable! And the location is great with walking distance to most places.

The hotel is absolutely lovely. We stayed in room 202 which was amazing! The breakfast was delicious! Ursula & Michele were so friendly & helpful, nothing was too much trouble.

Short walk to long street with shops and restaurants. Also where the hop on hop off bus goes from. About 20-30mins taxi from the airport which didn't cost a lot.

The only slight trouble we had was taxi drivers not knowing where the hotel was.

Stayed at Rouge on Rose for a week in March after reading such good reviews here and it certainly didn't disappoint. Ursula and Michelle are so welcoming and helpful, nothing is too much bother. The room I stayed in was spacious and light and had everything I needed. The breakfasts were delicious! The airport pick up and drop off they organised for me was also a great way to start and end my time in Cape Town,

Thank you Rouge on Rose...I will be back!

Warm welcome and super staff. Great spot whilst on business in the Cape. Long street's funky restaurants are close enough to drive for dinner. The Bo-Kaap, is in the traditional Muslim sector of the city so you don't need a wake up call with the muezzin's calls to prayer.

Room Tip: Depends on your level of fitness as there are no lifts.

Fabulous service & welcome from Ursula & all her team. Lovely comfortable room, great breakfast & helpful sightseeing tips. Hope to return!! Take ear plugs if noise sensitive, for the 4am mosque, but it adds to the atmosphere.
