Huijs Haerlem
Ranked #26 of 156 Cape Town Central B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 3, 2013

Ah, yes, there is only one word for this establishment: magnificent! I loved the furnishing - antiques, solid furniture, various accoutrements - and the spaciousness of the room. Breakfast was splendid and more than enough to fill a hungry person's inner space... More than this, more than the location, more than the accessibility, though, is the sense of being a welcome guest. The hosts are genuinely interested in one's comfort and security. Unfortunately, this review will read like a duplicate of the rest!

Room Tip: Book soon!

I can't rate Huijs Haerlem highly enough. It was a superb place to stay in all respects. The staff were consistently and genuinely friendly and attended to all one;s needs. The breakfasts were of the highest quality, as was the cleaning of the rooms and the general appearance of the entire property. It was excellent value for money and in a very good location. If I return to Cape Town, I will have no hesitation in booking Huijs Haerlem again.

More than a hotel, a home, with all the comforts. Our hosts, Johann and Stephan were
Like family and watched over us with due diligence. Breakfast was abundant as was the
Their attention. The location was perfect allowing us to get another view of Cape Town.
Sincerly, Ira Madris and Bill Demma.

Huijis Haerlem is my home from home in Cape Town. I am looked after from the time I arrive at the airport to when I leave. Examples of their going above and beyond the call of duty are, automatically pressing my business suit the day before a meeting, driving me to a meeting when a taxi was late, cooking my favourite breakfast without asking. Thank you Johan and the team.

Absolutely wonderful. Beautiful view, close to ocean and waterfront, super friendly service. Great WiFi by South African standards. The only downside is that you will be depressed when you have to leave. :)
