This is a clean, comfortable hotel with friendly staff. Good value for money and centrally located. It is not a luxury resort hotel, but if you need an affordable, pleasant and clean place with comfortable beds to use as a base for discovering Cape Town, it is perfect. Lots of restaurants in the vicinity.

Stop reading all of the reviews for other places and just book Oxford House! We were so impressed with the service, kindness and thoughtfulness of the staff, as well as the spacious comfortable room. I have no doubt that this is the best place to stay in Cape Town for a mid-range, apartment option. Check in was easy and we...

Clean and basic accommodations. Kitchenette stocked with fridge, dishes, utensils, toaster, coffee maker with a good supply of coffee and tea. No hot plate. Would stay again because of the close proximity of the waterfront. Staff was very friendly.

Staff is very kind, welcoming and helpful. Rooms are very clean, big and have good amenities for self catering. We stayed 1 night but for sure we will plan to go back there for a longer stay. Flat is centrally located and ideal for shopping, tourism around the city, waterfront activities and night life.

Oxford House is the perfect self catering accommodation in Cape Town. Very friendly atmosphere. The rooms are spacious and modern. Everything needed is there. V&A Waterfront is just a 10 mins walk away, Woolworths, cafés and restaurants are just round the corner.
