“Excellent Stay”
Reviewed February 2, 2013

For us it is the place to be, when we are in Cape Town.
We were for the fourth time in SA .
When we come back in CT, sure, we stay at Haerlem Huijs
Mister Johannes and his crew were very friendly and helpful.
Thanks very much.
See you again!

At the end of our fantastic holiday in South Africa we spent 5 days at the Hujis Haerlem Guest House. The guest house is ideally located for visiting Cape Town and the surroundings. Nice restaurants as well as a stop of the red double-decker sightseeing bus are in walking distance. The service is great, you get most valuable tips for everything you want to do. A very nice breakfast buffet as well as cooked-to-order warm breakfast give you a perfect start in the day!

We have visited H.H. several times during the year. Each time we have been welcomed back by the staff like old friends. The service is attentive, helpful and obliging but never invasive. The breakfasts cater for all tastes. The buffet has firm favourites as well as some variety each day. The cooked breakfast is made to order and presented well. I particularly enjoy large book collection and antique filled rooms which creates a lovely ambiance. The pool and garden are inviting and the sea view is a bonus. We have stayed in both the main house in rooms with a sea view as well as the adjacent single storey which opens onto a patio also with a sea view. We highly recommend H.H and look forward to our next stay.

Have just returned from a lovely stay at this wonderful guest house, located in Seapoint, Capetown, great welcome from Stefan on arrival @ 9am after overnight flight fm Heathrow, had pre-booked transfer directly with them which was wonderful. No hassle in getting taxi! my room was ready on arrival which was an added bonus! Room was very comfortable, located on annex with lovely terrace! enjoyed breakfasts on terrace each day except for first few days with Atlantic gale force 10 winds, when we enjoyed breakfast indoors, scrambled eggs bacon & healthy options! Johann & Stefan & staff were wonderful! Hopefully will be returning again in2013

the guest house is very well situated near seapoint/greenpoint and V&A., and in a safe area where you can park your car in the street. Despite arriving late I was properly welcomed. The room despite being old fashioned decorated are clean and spacious. The view from the balcony was amazing and the garden beautifully flowered.
Worht noticing that the guesthouse is in front of primary school, so morning is busy.

I stayed at this little guest house for three nights, in two different rooms. As some other guests have noticed, it is not in central Cape Town, but all the better. Everything one wants to see is a short taxiride away (taxis are VERY inexpensive), and the location is quiet, safe and peaceful with a fantastic view of the ocean. The guesthouse has a fully equipped kitchen and a wonderful garden to eat in, if you want to fix a simple dinner/lunch on your own. I recommend the rooms with private verandas. The hosts are the most friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: Choose one with a private veranda.

we stayed for ten nights in October of this year.
The staff is wonderful, even moving our belongings for us when we had to change rooms. The breakfasts were wonderful and the views from our windows were amazing.
Johann and Stefan were so helpful in navigating the city and getting us cabs when needed.
I would most definitely stay here again and again.
The one down side, it is far from "the action" so a cab is necessary for most forays, however we did find some restaurants that were within walking distance, so don't let distance deter you.
