From the moment I arrived and was greeted by Hazei l knew I was in for a very enjoyable stay. Hazel along with all the staff are so warm & welcoming. My room was spacious, bright, quiet and spotlessly clean. In addition, the little extra touches did not go unnoticed...comfortable bedding, nice toiletries, a fruit basket and real wooden hangers(not mismatched wire ones). The breakfast was truly outstanding and offered everything one could hope for and more. Everything was so fresh & delicious and so nicely presented. Olaf's is perfectly located on a quiet side street a block from the seafront and close to numerous eating establishments and shops. Go at once and enjoy a very special place!.

Hello Joseph, The summer duvets are that thin as most Europeans don't even want them but rather just a flat sheet. Down duvet is not liked by most as they have allergies against feathers. We do have down duvets but only on request. Best Raymond

It was a pleasure to stay at Olaf’s guesthouse. I stayed there about 6 years ago for the first time and still after this long time it was wonderful again. Very friendly, nice and calm place. Good location for Cape Town to explore. I can recommend this place very much.
