About 10 mins into the the V&A by taxi for c100r. Staff very well trained and a great relaxed feel. If you would rather avoid a big soulless...

We really enjoyed our stay at this boutique hotel. The room was very nice, great view to enjoy during morning coffee, a delicious breakfast and a great location to visit Cape Town from. The service was also excellent. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

Had a perfect double apartment with exceptionl looks and view, great facilities; stayed here for four nights with friends. The recommendations of staff "where to go" and "where to eat" were very good; but the highlight was having dinner prepared by Russell and cheeseplatters also prepared by staff/Russell in the evenings we had an extensive lunch outside and didn't want...

This boutique hotel has a contemporary look and feel fitting to the vibrant Cape Town. Service is professional and tampering to your needs: a great looking anti-pasti platter at short notice proved no problem. The surprise set 3 courses menu showed the quality of the chef. We have enjoyed our stay.

Everything was amazing. The staff, the view and of course the room. We stayed in their penthouse suite which was bigger tha we imagine. Best way to kick start our 5 year anniversary in South Africa. We didnt get to use the infinity pool as the weather was cold and rainy when we arrived. This is a small, very private...

This hotel is amazing for its views of the bay and the personal service you receive. From check in to check out I felt that there was nothing too great or small for the staff and owners to do for you. The room was spacious with a luxurious feel, very comfortable bed. Breakfast was delicious and nicely complimented with beautiful...

We spent the bulk of our honeymoon here. We liked it so much that we cancelled other plans and stayed longer at 52 De Wet. The location is fantastic for trail running. The food is great. The service could not have been nicer. It felt more like staying at a good friend's house than a stuffy hotel. I'd come back...

Magnificent location. Awesome views. Excellent service. Delicious breakfast. Would love to go back there, but spend a longer time there just relaxing at the rim-flow pool on the deck area. Loved our short stay.
