Himmelblau Boutique Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #41 of 156 Cape Town Central B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 26 January 2016

Himmelblau ticks all the boxes:

- The owners are a very friendly and hospitable couple.

- The have a cat! (I wanted to put this first on the list but decided it wouldn't be quite right)

- The location is perfect for the independent traveller: Oranjezicht is a beautiful residential area in Cape Town and close to everything. You're a 2 min. drive from Kloof Street (lots of restaurants, bars and shops) and 5 min. drive from the V&A Waterfront. Parking is available either at their premises or on the street.

- The rooms are very modern and clean; they have everything you need plus a few quirky extras like a terrace with an outdoor shower or a jug of water which the owners collected themselves from a local spring!

- Honesty bar stocked with water, soft drinks and alcoholic beverages and very reasonably priced.

- A lovely outdoor area with pool and sun loungers.

- Very good breakfast selection consisting of ceral and muesli, yoghurts, fantastic bread (!) with jams, cheese & ham e.t.c. They can also make eggs for you if you want.

- For those that bother during their holidays: the wifi worked perfectly.

- And the place has a lot of character! It's beautifully decorated and very unique. Definitely one of the prettiest B&B's I've stayed at so far.

All in all we had a fantastic stay at Himmelblau and will most definitely return. Next time for more than just one night. Thanks guys!

Room Tip: I think all rooms are very similar. Anyway we had the second one as you enter..

We only spent one night at Himmelblau, at the end of our 2-week trip to South Africa...but we loved the place! The hosts are very friendly, helpful and flexible, and the place is beautifully decorated and very clean, well-located in a safe neighbourhood close to restaurants, etc. Breakfast was excellent with fresh fruit, cereals, jams, eggs any style, fresh juice, tea, coffee... and friendly chats with the hosts and other guests around the communal table. We loved it and would definitely go back to spend more time, and use the pool and the deck!

Claus and his wife were very hospitable and made my trip feel like I was staying at home away from home. Coming and going was not an issue, as you get your own remote, which made going to meetings a pleasure.

I'll be back in December to spend a few days relaxing at the pool this time.
