Rouge on Rose

My mother and I went on a trip down to South Africa for a 6 day Safari and decided to stay in Cape Town for a few days to rest up after the long travel from the states. We came to Cape Town to explore, but also to refresh and relax before our safari trip. That being said we did not do too much research, but definitely had a few things in mind to accomplish while in town. We told them what we had in mind and without knowing it they had planned our trip in Cape Town and it went off without a hitch. We were able to do everything we wanted to do and more. All of their suggestions and assistance in planning made for a once in a life time experience! Staying in a large hotel is nice, I know I used to me an Asst. Manager at a 4 star hotel state side, but nothing beats the service and love that Ursula and her son, Michel, have put into the place. Definite must stay, just know that it will be a taxi ride to most places, especially at night.

I cae across Rouge on Rose through TripAdvisor, looking for something slightly different. What a treat - the hotel was just delightful: excellent service, fun and quirky design and a most delicious breakfast. The room was a very good size with plenty room to work, relax and hang out -- with a separate sleeping nook. To be highly recommended...

We have spent 4 nights in Rouge on Rose. First we have thought we are a bit apart from classical tourist venues such waterfront however next day we have realized that we have choosen a great boutique hotel in " greenwich village " of Cape Town.
You stay in large size tasty rooms (studios) and have a good access to beautiful cafes, featured shops and live music around.
Be sure Ursula and Micheal will make your stay a memorable one with great tips and in conclusion here is a total " value for money" spot in Cape Town.
Definetely recommended!!

Rouge on Rose makes you feel welcome from the first second. Ursula and Michel thank you for everything you do for your customers. Every question will be answered - where to find the best restaurants in town, what to to around. Your tours will be organised as well as your taxi back to the airport. The hotel is one of the most creative and comfortable I found. The modern and antique mix is the special of Ursula. The rooms are huge but cosy. You just feel like you stay at home. The breakfast in the Side Dish is delicious and you also should try the lunch menu - a fresh fusion cuisine. Rouge on Rose is situated in the beautiful Bo Kaap from where you can reach the most spots in the city centre by foot. For save parking there are 24 hours watchman doing a good job. I told all my friends and family if they are on holiday in Cape Town to make a stop in this wonderfull hotel.

Very good Hotel for people who like to walk in the city. Five minutes to the center. 15 minutes to the Waterfront. Very nice hosts, who help whereever they can.

Rouge on Rose captures the essence of what a five star boutique hotel should be. It embodies the warmth and attentiveness that Ursula and her son Michel extend to all guests.

My room was very spacious and neatly laid out. After a great night sleep I would get up to enjoy the breathtaking balcony views of the colours of the Bo-Kaap area (Malay Quarters). The cafe downstairs serves a hearty Brekkie (bacon & eggs on toast, plus pastry) and if you really want to treat yourself, try the decadent French Toast. After that you are ready for anything!

Needless to say after a fabulous eight day stay, it broke my heart to leave these wonderful people and place, so I'll be back to soak up more Cape Town hospitality.

Best wishes to Ursula and Michel,

Nivit
