Himmelblau Boutique Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #42 of 156 Cape Town Central B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 4 weeks ago via mobile

What we enjoyed most during our stay:

The friendliness of Klaus and Katrin, the lightness of the place (good vibes/energy), the nice decoration, the lovely breakfast, the oversized rain shower, small pool deck surrounded with lots of nice flowers and plants.

Many hotels / B&B’s position themselves as boutique-sized, but Himmelblau is one of the few that can actually (accurately) claim this. With just 3 rooms the place is as cozy and quiet as you would hope. A real hidden gem.

Everything was perfect: the interior decoration, the friendly conversation, the breakfast and the comfy bed. After a long flight it was very welcoming. We stayed a couple of nights, we would of stayed longer but they were fully booked.

Spacious and super clean rooms is what makes this a great value for money stay. WiFi was good enough for a uninterrupted SD stream. Bed was very comfortable. The hosts are great and only after one night it feels like you knew them forever. The venue has easy access to the CBD and even in peak traffic you can be at the V&A Waterfront in 20 minutes. I will visit them again!

It was a relatively short stay in the mother city, Cape Town. My initial engagement with owners was genuinely friendly and welcoming. I was impressed by the stylishness of the place which at the same time evoked relaxedness of home. It is located very close to all touristic amenities. The breakfast was certainly a highlight. the owners make their own jam, freshly roasted seeds for you muesli and plenty more special touches that add to a great stay at Himmelblau. I fully recommend the place whether you are a business traveller longing for home or on holiday. It is an amazing space with exceptional hosts.
