Wonderful, friendly place in a great location!”
I recently stayed at Olaf’s for 3 nights. This is a perfect place to settle for your stay in Cape Town. The guesthouse is very clean and well appointed and the staff were very friendly and helpful. It’s a short stroll to the beach and there are many restaurants within walking distance of the guest house. I would thoroughly recommend this as a place to stay in Cape Town.

Guesthouse with nice flair, friendly owner and staff in super location”
When we arrived at Olaf's guesthouse, we immediately felt "home" - a very cosy, friendly and nice atmosphere. Everybody was very open, friendly, caring and helpful! We will definitely consider to stay in this guest house once we are in cape town again.

Raymond is an excellent host”
Ray's easy manner & nothing was too much trouble
this is an excellent choice for german speakers as ray, a local capetonian, has spent 32 years in `hamburg and speaks the language fluently, which is not to say he isn't a terrific host for any english speakers. f you like soccer, stay here as ray's a veritable encyclopedia of the sport, with a father in law being a german icon for `hamburg. the rooms are comfy and warm. we asked for a `'topper`' to turn our 2 single beds into a large one, and nothing was too hard. very comfortable bedding, and warm. we were able to use the laptop which was a huge help because being backpackers we didn't have a computer with us to check the emails, so that ws a plus. cosy log fires at night are a help. `lots of up to date magazines `9english & german`0 to flip through and plenty of tourist info make `olafs a terrific place, and it is very well located; we caught the red bus to tour capetown and this is just a five minute wlk around the corner. `no trouble parking our hire car on the street in front of `olafs. quiet apart from some renovating going on next door but it didn't interfere with out sleep-ins.

Lovely place to stay”
Very friendly owner, secure, comfortable, complimentary toiletries, clean, convenient location, very close to the sea, rates negotiable (great value), quiet, large rooms, lovely breakfast included.
Swimming pool is tiny - though this was not a problem for us during Cape Town's winter.
A lovely place to stay in Cape Town. Raymond, the owner is very friendly and helpful. The situation is great - about 25 minutes walk to the V & A Waterfront and only 3 minutes from the sea and a bus stop for the Red and Blue tour bus routes. The guest house is clean and comfortable with sizeable rooms. Our room had 2 bathrooms, each with its own powerful shower with reliably hot water.

Positiv überrascht”
Eingangsbereich, Hilfsbereitschaft, Flair
Durch das GPS im Auto leicht zu finden, denn einiges Straßen in Kapstadt sind eine Einbahn. Wir wurden sehr herzlich empfangen. Auch wurde uns bzgl. Tickets auf den Tafelberg geholfen, da diese vorher online gekauft etwas Billiger sind. Das Zimmer war sehr sehr und das Bad klein aber fein und toll geplant. Das Frühstück war ausreichend und man konnte auch Wünsche äußern. Auch wurde uns am zweiten Tag ein Taxi gerufen.
