Perfect hosts, delicious breakfast, luxurious rooms, really a boutique bed and breakfast. Himmelblau is much more than just another private guesthouse in Capetown. We will come back to this wonderful place.

Very warm welcome by Katrin and Claus in their beautiful house, you immediately feel "at home". Individual interior style with "an eye for the little nice things"... During a wonderful breakfast at the fire place with a variety of delicous things to eat, they sit with you at the table and give advice on what to see and what to do in and around Capetown. Safe area to live, quiet rooms and close to all the sights of Capetown.

It‘s the best accommodation in Cape Town to be! The hosts cat Bowie, Claus and Kathrin are so engaged and friendly. They’ll give you always good advices for dinner and trips in and around Cape Town etc! This luxurious B&B itself is very stylish, cozy and clean. We also really enjoyed the tasty breakfast there and the nice and very interesting conversations with Kathrin and Claus. They are just wonderful and interesting people. We will definitely come again. And Bowie is a wonderful cat: we already miss him! We felt very welcomed!

Katrin and Claus have been wonderful hosts in their beautiful B&B location. Breakfast buffet is A+ and the room has been cozy, clean, and very well designed. I especially loved the privat outdoor shower - in addition to the inside shower/bathroom. Location is only a 10min UBER drive away from the Capetown Waterfront and/or about 20min to Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens. The house is tucked into an area that felt safe to walk down the street to the nearby Gardens Shopping Center.

Claus and Katrin have created a beautiful and peaceful B and B in a leafy and quiet location in Cape Town but within striking distance of all the sights. We really enjoyed our stay at Himmelblau and would certainly return.

I heard about the high standards of Himmelblau from friends/family. During my 3 nights stay, everything was just perfect - exceeding my already high expectations! Very friendly and helpful owners, cosy and luxurious rooms, excellent food, everything in pristine condition, … A place which definitely deserves the term “Boutique B&B”! One of the best places I have ever stayed! (by the way, I am 61 - (-: )
