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!
