It was our second time in the Cape Standard and this time we had a very nice room in the villa. The room has a little terrace with direct access to the pool and hangout area. That was fantastic! The team did again a very good job in helping with every kind of requests. We could also trust them with...

I found the Cape Standard to be a lovely place to stay. The staff were very friendly and came up with some good suggestions for dinner, even making the bookings for me. The room was a good size and very private.I loved the the pool and breakfasts and the location was excellent.

I spent over two weeks at Cape Standard and I thoroughly enjoyed my rather long stay. The guesthouse is situated in a quiet neighbourhood, close to Main Street and its cafés, restaurants and shops, and within walking distance of both the city centre and the sea front. Tastefully decorated, the guesthouse is cosy, and has a laidback atmosphere that makes...

I absolutely loved staying at The Cape Standard. Even before I stepped foot on the property, the staff was so welcoming and accommodating. They helped me book and plan activities in and around Capetown. They allowed me to store luggage in their hotel while I traveled outside of Capetown for a few days. Upon arrival at The Cape Standard, everyone...

Cape standard was a great place we were referred to when another hotel was all booked. We stayed for the last 3 days of our trip. The rooms were clean and modern. Great bathrooms w/ open shower. The pool was also really nice and it was enjoyable to relax out by it. We also loved our little patio table to...

Lovely. Booked at the last minute and could not have been happier. Very clean and well decorated. The outdoor space was gorgeous and quiet. Great location, walkable to the main road and V&A and also easy to grab a taxi or Uber. Best of all were the staff - we were a bit disorganized and they were incredibly helpful and...

All good. Very clean and very attentive personel. Very good location and V&A Waterfront in walking distance. Good tiips and tricks received from the team. MAybe the romm is a little bit tight and bathroom door design does not allow a sound isolated experience in the bathroom. Very nice breakfast room with outdoor seating available. I recommend the hotel.

David, Jonathan and the rest of the staff are fantastic and we will stay at Cape Standard if we go back. It is very calm and the pool area is nice and quiet. The breakfast is fresh and you can order eggs a la carte.

I feel so fortunate that I found this place on a last minute decision to come to Cape Town while being in Johannesburg for business. The place was exactly what I wanted and needed- fantastic location, chic, simple, lovely, beautiful, radiated good vibes.
