Alkmaar, the Netherlands

Purple House is een ideaal gelegen B&B in het centrum van Kaapstad. Waterfront en Loop Street op loopafstand en de Tafelberg bijna op je ontbijtbordje. Een heerlijk verblijf bij twee gezellige gastheren. Guido en Henk: Bedankt! En tot de volgende keer!!


Recommended restaurant: Il leone

Goede ligging. Goede gastheren. Perfecte kamer (bedden en badkamer). Guido en Henk zijn zeer vriendelijke en behulpzame gastheren die je alle vrijheid gunnen. Een absolute aanrader!

The Purple House is beautiful - but it would be worthless without the two guys living in it. See you in 2013, Restaurant recommended: Biesmiellah , Bo Kaap.

Very warm welcome when we arrived, instantly felt home. Truly enjoyed our stay at this magnificent B&B, just a pity it could not be for longer. Will definitely make this our regular stop in Cape Town! Recommended restaurant: The Kove in Camps Bay – best cocktails.

What a warm and delightful place to enjoy Cape Town from. The house is as interesting as Cape Town itself, not to mention the rooftop breakfast terrace. Visit with Henk & Guido, you won’t get better hosts.

The Purple House was an excellent choice and we are so glad to have found it. It was more than just a B&B, .. it became our home away from home while in Cape Town. The décor is cozy but trendy, and the beds and bathroom were comfortable. The location was also perfect as it allowed us to walk to many different places and attractions, and the neighborhood was safe and nice to walk throughout.


But what really makes the Purple House a wonderful choice is Henk & Guido. They will always go out of their way to make you feel welcome. From their delicious breakfast, to helping us with renting a car, to tips on selecting tour guides, they were always helpful and warm. They certainly made our experience in Cape Town a more pleasant one and we would certainly recommend it to others.

Zeer gastvrij gasthuis met beheerders die zeer betrokken en service-minded zijn. Top!
