Rose Lodge is located in central Cape Town. This small, cosy guest house is located in the colourful and historic Malay Quarter known as the Bo-Kaap in Cape Town.

It is only a five-minute walk to the downtown area and the fashionable and trendy De Waterkant Village. The popular Victoria and Alfred Waterfront and Cape Town International Convention Centre are also within a short walking distance.

The rooms in this old Malay houses are not big, but they are all en-suite, with TVs, safes, air-conditioning and heating. Coffee and tea facilities are available in the kitchens as well as free WiFi. We can arrange your transfers or tours.

We are a non-smoking, dog-friendly guest house. A substantial SELF_SERVE continental breakfast is provided. English & Xhosa are spoken.

Rose Lodge has been mentioned in the Lonely Planet, Cape Town 2009 edition:

"Inside two small houses in the Bo-Kaap are these cute B&Bs. There are just three cosy rooms (with private bathrooms) in each house, all decorated in contemporary style."

It has also been mentioned in Le Guide Du Routard 2012 edition:

"Seulement six chambres doubles dans deux maisons dans un quartier calme et coloré, à un jet de pierre de centre-ville. Sure et confortable. La déco est résolument contemporaine, dans les tons gris et blanc. On peut prendre son petit déj dans la mini-cour. Parking gratuit dans la rue."

Iconic area. Lots of tourists around. Great food At Biesmilla up the road

I loved the privacy, but the linen were dull, grey in colour while the towels were brown, which made me insecure in terms of hygiene matters. I raised it with the receptionist, but she indicated that they do not provide white linen. it is a tradition to expect white sheets. i also feel that i did not get value for money

Bruce and the team really went the extra mile making my in-laws' 50th anniversary weekend away special. Nothing was too much trouble for them - really appreciate the effort!

Perfect location but a bit too noisy

Hot water in the bathroom needs to run for far too long to be warm enough for use which defeats the purpose of water savings. Perhaps management could consider an adjustment to the delivery of warm water. On a positive note excellent staff - Bruce is always available and Amanda is delightful and very helpful and made our short stay very pleasant. Breakfast was basic and simple and we enjoyed the fact that there was no pressure to meet breakfast serving deadlines. Breakfast is always available at your convenience. Room was a trifle small for two people but manageable.
