  1. I really enjoyed my stay at Purple House. Guido and Henk are perfect hosts. I had to make a last minute change and they couldn’t have been more accomodating. The room is spacious, private, clean and comfortable and the bathroom is beautiful. Breakfast was delicious. The location is convenient for most places you want to go to in Cape Town as it is close to the hop-on- hop-off bus and to downtown.

  2. Most of all the warm, personal welcome by Guido and Henk. But I also would like to mention that the “room” in the Purple House is more a suite (with beautiful design seating area) than a room. The kind of luxury of a boutique hotel (the bathroom is huge, beautifully restored but with original wood floorboards, and has a bath tub + huge rainshower) , attention to detail in the smallest things (artwork made by local artists) and the personal touch of our hosts, who helped us with everything (booking tickets to Table Mountain,etc).

  3. Best Place to Stay in Cape Town

    The Purple house was a fabulous place to stay being so close to everything. A short walk to the waterfront, great restaurants and the town centre. The owners were fantastic! Super friendly, helpful and welcoming. They were always ready to help with advice , ideas or suggestions to make my stay the incredible stay it was. I would highly recommend the Purple House to anyone looking to stay in Cape Town. Big Thank You to guys for taking care of everything.

  4. Ottima ospitalità

  8. Toller Ausgangspunkt für die City. Das Frühstück war super lecker und nach unseren Wünschen zubereitet. Der Service war hervorragend. Unsere holländischen Gastgeber waren sehr freundlich, hilfsbereit und zuvorkommend. Tips gab es jede Menge. Das Zimmer geschmackvoll eingerichtet. Das Bad war ein kleines Highlight. Wir können die Unterkunft absolut weiterempfehlen. Die Lage im Viertel war sehr gut. Viele Ziele war zu Fuß zu erreichen
