In 12 Hofmeyr we have tried to capture in a guesthouse what you have said you desire and appreciate when you travel: comfort and intimacy, modern amenities, local design, a great neighbourhood in a central location and a curated experience. Our Victorian house has just undergone a major renovation and in doing so we have tried to conserve as many of the old existing Victorian features as possible, while throwing in a huge dose of funk, design and local flavour. The result is an unusual blend of old and new, of both form and function. We believe that 12 Hofmeyr offers you the opportunity to stay in Cape Town as a Capetonian and to have a unique local experience.

Private and quaint with friendly staff that only engages when required. Guests are left alone to enjoy their privacy with easy access in and out. Close to all the cool places in Gardens and Kloof street.

We recently stayed for 5 nights at this quirky B and B. It's location is fantastic- just off kloof street- a hip happening street, full of good restaurants, but even though it is so close to such a popular night time venue, Hofmeyr is always very peaceful. The b and B is very quaint, there are only 4 rooms, the owner does not live on site, there is a contact number should there be a problem, other than that guests just see cheryl and Alex, who come in daily to prepare breakfast and make up the rooms. Our room (the red room), was not terribly big, but we really didn't spend a lot of time in there so it suited us. Our one slight problem was with the fact that property has a spiral staircase to the upstairs- where our room was located, meaning the bottom floor and top floor were not shut off for noise purposes. We found that on mornings when we may have slept a little later the sounds of breakfast preparation and room cleaning downstairs woke us up. It was a minor disturbance though, we loved Capetown, Hofmeyr is a great location to stay, to be close but apart at the same time.
