Ursula and Michel were superlative hosts! We were in need of a medical appointment and a dental appointment which Ursula arranged straight away. They couldn't have been more accommodating. The boutique feel of the hotel and the warmth of the welcome makes guests feel very comfortable here. Don't hesitate; stay at Rouge on Rose!

This is a 4 story Boutique hotel with 3 rooms on each floor. High ceilings and lots of windows give great views as well as an airy, open feeling. Large living and dining room has a galley kitchen along one wall with fridge and microwave. Dish ware provided in our room. The bedroom was spacious as well with a large...

Comfortable accommodation with first rate hospitality. The breakfasts are a foodie's dream. Everything from omelette soufflé to pecan cream cheese stuffed French toast. The rooms are spacious and very luxurious. I hesitate to say that they could easily charge more, but I'm glad they don't. If we ever return to Cape Town, we will definitely stay here again.

Amazing. Outstanding. Quirky. Wonderful. Just some of the adjectives which come immediately to mind when I recall the five days recently spent at this most wonderful boutique hotel. Run by mother and son Ursula and Michel with a small support team, it was a great few days to be in their company. They are fountains of knowledge and tips: we...

We stayed at Rouge on Rose for four nights during our honeymoon. This small boutique hotel is well located in the Bo Kaap neighborhood of Cape Town.

I can not praise Rouge on Rose enough. The customer service both Michel and Ursula gave us from the moment we made the booking direct with them to the minute we left was exceptional. Credit card deposit secured the booking. The hotel is ideally located, a block off a main road but it still provides tranquility in this bustling city....
