Number5 Guesthouse is really a warm, comfortable, clean and loving home in one of the nicest and safest areas of Cape Town, just 2 mins walk from Kloof Street. The property itself is beautiful but what made it special for us was the service and help of the staff. Special shout out to Marie, who was absolutely the warmest, most...

Some things were beautiful about this guesthouse and others so annoying. Fan in the ceiling only worked when light was on and bedside lights could have lit up the new stadium, and all had to be on or nine at all,while bathroom was in a dark hole. Staff great, lovely linen, nice breakfast so maybe fix the simple things.

This is the best guesthouse I have ever stayed in! The welcome was warm, the room impeccable, breakfast delicious and service second to none. Noisy neighbours disturbed my sleep for one night only, which given the proliferation of guesthouses in this area is surprising. Excellent MyCiti bus service from just 200m away makes this ideally located for exploration of the...

I absolutely loved spending 4 nights at No 5 Guest House. My room was very tastefully furnished, and the beds covered with linen insures a good night sleep. I appreciated the very friendly, flexible (very late check in!) and professional service. The super fresh and luxurious breakfast ensured a good start to my day.

This is an ideal spot to get around Cape Town. Boutique feel, very personal touch, gorgeous deco and full of taste. Everything is well decorated and makes you feel at home and even more. Breakfast is a healthy varied buffet with fresh product that you can enjoy inside or outside on the lovely peaceful terrace. Eventhough the boutique b&b is...
