Great room, but unsatisfactory shower
Clean room. Great Location.
Loved the location and area. Plenty of restaurants in close by. The staff were really helpful, the room was great except for one thing: the shower head was absolutely useless - more water went out the side than thru the nozzles. I would say they need to up their standard of inspection, too, as I came in one evening and found that the lines on the venetion blinds had been fouled up, obviously by the cleaner, and then just left that way

Piqturesque neighbourhood
Nice and safe area
Had a strange room on a street corner; must have been a shop earlier and remade into a slightly overdesigned hotel room. Walk-in right on the corner, not through any reception. Interesting, but not completely convincing. Blinds had to be drawn as it was pedestrians just outside the windows. What i liked, though, is that you took care of yourself completely. The systmem of coupons to a nearby café for breakfast worked well. Overall it was good value for the price.

Lovely guest house in the village
in the middle of the village, nice decoration, very friendly staff
no wifi internet in our room, reception is not in the same builiding, no minibar, no phone
The Charles Cafe & Rooms Hotel was a good choice, we will stay there again at our next visit in Cape Town. The room was really big and nice decorated with a bath tub in the middle. Just dissapointed about the internet connection. Anyway: We found free wifi internet opposite the guest house at Café Manhattan.

Habe mich sehr wohl gefühlt.
Die Lage des Gästehauses ist hervorragend; Waterfront und Long Street sind zu Fuß gut zu erreichen. Das Viertel ist sehr schön und sicher. Hatte von meinem Zimmer aus den Blick auf den Tafelberg.
