A beautiful Guest House which was our first stay for our trip through South Africa. The old house with the tasteful antique furniture and the original wooden floor as well as the high ceiling gives you a feeling as you arrived in the beginning of the 20th Century. The hotel is located in Oranjezicht on the foot of the table mountain and walking into the city centre of Kapstadt through the wonderful Company's Garden takes you about 25 minutes. Janet, who served our breakfast is a warmly person and the good soul of Esperanza. The breakfast was very good, a different choice of fresh juices, cereal, fresh bread and variety of cheese and eggs are served ( as we are vegeterian we can not give a review of the bacon :-) ) The rooms are very clean and unique. WIFI is available all over the place. We really enjoyed our stay at Esperanza.

Esperanza is a great Guest House, and my first choice whenever I'm in Cape Town. Good location, great accommodation, excellent host. Even better if you can persuade Mark to let you try one of his Shangani Lager home brews.

Esperanza is a beautifully restored period property, located with great views of the city of Cape Town and Table Mountain. The hosts Mark & Michelle are very welcoming and hospitable; Gloria and Janet serve a fantastic breakfast with great smiles and the big spacious ensuite rooms are kept spotlessly clean. The house is conveniently located to many of the attractions there are to see in Cape Town, for example, we walked in to the city through the Company Gardens, visiting various museums and galleries, and for those with more energy you can walk up table mountain from the house. The honesty bar just typifies the relaxed and homely atmosphere, a really wonderful place to stay in Cape Town.

As soon as we (my husband,2 daughters ,son in laws and myself) arrived in the B&B, we knew,even without seeing it yet, that the rooms would be exceptional. And yes... it was exceptional. What a nice house and rooms. great breakfast, very nice people working there. Jeannette was so nice during breakfast, she gave us a warm feeling. When we opened our curtains, we had a view on the tablemountain. It is also very close to the city center .Next time when we come back we will choose for this B&B again, that's for sure. Thank you Mark for letting us stay in your beautiful house! See you next time!

What a great place to spend a few days or more. Great host (Mark) and his staff are amongst the best. Sitting at the foot of table mountain, it's hard to imagine a better location. Close proximity to the centre of town but just far enough to get the peace and tranquillity of the area.
