Very pleasant stay. Homely feel, great location in Sea Point. The room was comfortable, spacious and well equipped and the breakfasts were great. I prefer to stay in a home such as Olaf's than a hotel. The only minor quibble would be the difficulty in finding parking in the street near to Olaf's .....we only managed because we had a...

Good location for city centre, V&A and bus route to Camps Bay, etc. Quiet peaceful stay, comfortable room with all amenities, friendly staff. Only criticism would be the speed of service for breakfast on second morning.

The only issue was there was no lift and carrying heavy cases up a carpeted staircase was rather difficult. I couldn't allow a woman who met us on arrival to do this for us. Other than that the friendly service and welcome to your warm guest house was great Thank you.

I found Olaf's Guest House to be just what I needed for my stay. As a single female traveler, I like small, clean and comfortable accommodation where I feel totally safe. Also the fact that it was just a few minutes walk to the nearest 'hop on-hop off' bus stop and the sea was great too.

From seapoint it is approx. a 40 minutes walk to the waterfront. At the mainstreet (5 mminutes walk) you can find a suermarket and some restaurants. 2 minutes to the promanade of sea point. Free parking at the street infront of the guesthouse. Good quiet stay.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Olaf’s Guest House is easy to find. Our guest house is conveniently situated on Cape Town's Atlantic Seaboard, right below Signal Hill, between Beach Rd. and Main Rd. in Sea Point. Olaf’s was built back in 1937, which helps to explain our design, spacious interiors, high ceilings and wooden/tiled floors. And has more recently been renovated and enhanced with touches of up-market African style and charm. We’re just a stone’s throw away from the city center of Cape Town. As well as the V&A Waterfront, Cape Town’s shopping Mecca. ... more   less
