St Paul's is a nice friendly guest house which represents excellent value for money in the down town area of Cape Town. The accommodation is basic yet adequate and comfortable. Though their website is limited, communication of any queries though email was always speedy and helpful. I took a room with shared bathroom facilities and other rooms have ensuite option....

This Guest House is the best budget accommodation in Cape Town, hands down! Located so close to the city center, you can walk anywhere in a few minutes or hop on one of the new bright red, double-decker buses at a stop just a block away. Both the beautiful old house and it's parking lot are very safe and secure,...

I can't praise this place enough. A room of your own -- with bathroom, way tall ceilings (wooden, so they creak, but lots of character), hearty breakfast, and, most important of all, family-level hospitality, in the center of the city for... 550 rand.

Perfect accommodation in terms of good quality-price balance. Very close to Long Street, its perfect to spend some days in the Cape. The room is very clean, quite and nice and all the staff is very kind and helpful.

6 of us stayed at this Guest House for 4 nights. The Guest House is immaculate, the breakfast ample, and the location terrific - so close to "downtown," and very safe.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We are an affordable b&b in the heart of Cape Town. Minutes away from the most popular streets and attractions, you really can't do better than St. Paul's Guest House. We are located on the hip Bree Street, seconds away from Long Street, but in a more quiet and safer area. R 500/night shared bathroom. R 600/per night en suite for single. Family rates and group rates are available. ... more   less
