My partner and I stayed at the Amsterdam Guest House for six days beginning New Year’s Eve 2011-2012. We made reservations at the Amsterdam back at the end of August and Lourens was a great help to us in suggesting places to stay on the Eastern Cape before our arrival in Cape Town and great source of suggestions for places to eat and tour during our stay in Cape Town. We loved the ambiance of the Amsterdam Guest House with its lovely living room and pool and sauna area, and the amazing breakfast that Lourens and the magnificent staff served every morning. Truly, you can have breakfast (which they serve from 8 till 12 noon) and not worry about eating till dinner. Lourens was a wealth of knowledge about anything you wanted to know about regarding Cape Town and his making reservations made things even easier. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Amsterdam Guest House and our stay in Cape Town.
