Olaf's Guest House
Excellent stay
Excellent, wish I had found this guesthouse many years ago
Robert, gb4 night trip
Olaf's Guest House
Lovely, relaxing stay despite tiny niggles
A lovely relaxing stay in a surprisingly quiet part of bustling Sea Point. Friendly staff, lovely breakfast, safe and secure. Only a couple of minor quibbles: during the day there seemed to be a lot of shouting between management and lower-ranked staff. I don't know who was the perpetrator, but it was uncomfortable to hear. The bed was very comfortable, but the wooden headboard was set c.2–3 inches away from the wall, meaning that the slightest movement caused loud banging on the wall. Easily fixed by stuffing a cushion between wall and headboard, but something of an oversight. Despite these two issues, I'll still give Olaf's five stars because it was such a lovely stay overall.

Lovely place in Cape Town SeaPoint area
A very comfortable and friendly guesthouse in a quiet area close to the sea. I am a 64 year old woman traveling alone wanting to see Cape Town. This was a perfect place for my taste, not being interested in the night life scene. It is close enough to the city center to take a reasonable taxi ride if wanted but far from the noise. Accommodations were very cleaning aesthetic, excellent breakfast and an area to pick up munchies (on the honor system) at night.
