Fair 4,0
Not great having to share bathrooms. If you are a couple, I wouldnt recommend the standard room option at all.

Enjoyable stay
We enjoyed our stay at Harper's House very much. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, and the room was very comfortable. Harper's House is in a quiet street, but very close to a variety of restaurants and the waterfront, so very convenient for sightseeing.

Visit to Cape Town
This is an refurbished large old home. A very nice place with friendly guests and staff. The room was large and bright. You do have shared bath, but there are several on each floor. The local area is on the shady side with a number of homeless on the sidewalk and park benches. I was told safe, but don't be out walking late at night take a cab. There are a number of restaurants and bars close at hand.

So cute and charming!
This is such a unique and charming place to stay! I would highly recommend it. No need to be concerned about not having a bathroom in your room, it’s literally right down the hall and available whenever you like with good branded soap and such. The service was amazing and offers a great place to meet fellow travelers. We stayed at the Taj Cape Town beforehand and again, found this place to be way more charming and felt like you were at home.
