A Big Thank You To Our Guests

Here just a few reviews our guest have left after their stay here at Nine Flowers Guest House.


L acceuil irréprochable. Personnel très attentif, toujours disponible et souriant. Le petit déjeuné est excellent. La chambre était grande et très propre avec en cadeau chaque soir quelques biscuits sur les lits. Facile d accès, proche du centre ville et donne un accès facile aux autres activités à faire au Cap.

Hospitality at its best.

The holiday was made so easy because of this guest house. They were in contact by email prior to our arrival to South Africa and organised our pick-up from the airport which went very smoothly. The reception staff were always on hand with recommendations and help if we needed it which is always appreciated in a new city. I loved the little touches like the drink on arrival and the surprise dish every morning at breakfast. I will try to make breakfast pizza at home. The room was spacious overlooking a courtyard. The location is perfect for table mountain, afternoon tea at the Mount Nelson hotel and just off the M3 if you are hiring a car. They also have secure parking. I would not hesitate to recommend staying here. They put the H in hospitality. I started to feel that I used to be a terrible waitress as their standards are so high.

Second Stay

…and it was just as excellent as the first time


Guet house au top. Accueilli avec grâce. Chambre au top nous avions eu la dépendance à votre gauche de l hôtel. Un vrai cocon tout y est très beau. Petit déjeuner. Superbe une petit touche du patron chaque matin pour nous faire découvrir son attention. 4 nuits au top. Je le recommande car très bien placé dans la ville / parking privé /Petit resto super à côté/ aubergine …etc 


Séjour très agréable

Un super séjour au nine flowers. Bien situé, une équipe très à l écoute et de très bons conseils. Petit déjeuner très copieux. On nous a proposé des assiettes vins fromages pour le soir au coin du feu quand nos jeunes enfants dormaient paisiblement à l étage. Une adresse à garder pour notre prochain séjour au cap! 


Our welcome was delightful and friendly

The staff were all extremely helpful and accommodating and we felt really beautifully looked after. The house is a charming old building with extremely spacious and comfortable rooms, ours was overlooking the pretty courtyard garden and was very quiet and peaceful. Breakfasts were delicious and it was possible to order a cooked breakfast which was prepared as we waited. The house is very central and within easy walking distance of gardens and monuments of all kinds. I would recommend The Nine Flowers to anyone and hope to go back one day!

Lovely setting.

“Heritage property but with a clean, uncluttered design. Good choices on the buffet plus a selection of choices for a hot breakfast. Staff were extremely helpful and went beyond to be of assistance.Location great and safe.”

Mother/Daughter trip

Needless to say, our experience was that amazing that I can’t stop thinking about it. The rooms look exactly like the pictures on the website. We had a view of Lion’s Head from our balcony. The rooms are very spacious so you never feel cramped. Matthias was super hospitable. Lucky for us, they had an opening before our scheduled stay. They don’t have a lot of rooms so you would want to book in advance. But by not having a lot of rooms it allows them to provide the superb service they most definitely have. Even for breakfast, they can cook something special just for you. It really is a home away from home. The recommendations he provided helped us plan an unforgettable trip.


Als Alleinreisende fühlte ich mich sehr gut aufgehoben

Von einigen Freunden wurde mir Nine Flowers Guesthouse bereits empfohlen. Jetzt war ich (Alleinreisende) selbst dort und habe mich rundum wohl gefühlt. Nettes Personal und der Gastgeber Matthias ist sehr auf das Wohl seiner Gäste bedacht und gibt individuelle Ratschläge. Bei vorherigen Kapstadt-Besuchen habe ich weit ausserhalb gewohnt, jetzt war ich froh um die zentrumsnahe und dennoch sichere Lage – alles lässt sich wunderbar zu Fuß erreichen. Das Restaurant-Cafe Maria in unmittelbarer Nachbarschaft ist ein weiteres Highlight. 


A Cape Town Gem

What a nice place! We had a really warm welcome, the room was superb and the breakfast exquisite. The staff is super helpful in planning activities and selecting nice places for dinner. We will be back! 


Urlaub in Kapstadt

mitten in Kapstadt mit kleinem, ruhigen Innenhof. Zuvorkommendes und sehr hilfsbereites Personal. Der Gastgeber Matthias Schaffner kümmert sich sehr um das Wohl seiner Gäste und gibt gern individuelle Tipps, z.B. zu Ausflugsmöglichkeiten, Restaurants etc. Wir können das Nine Flowers nur weiterempfehlen! 


Viel mehr als ein Guesthouse

Hier fühlt man sich willkommen und sehr gut aufgehoben. Inhaber und Mitarbeiterinnen lesen Dir jeden Wunsch von den Augen ab und kümmern sich wirklich um alles. Eine 100% ige Empfehlung! Für Alleinreisende, Paare wie Familien geeignet! Und wenn man abends mal nicht raus will, wird der Kamin angemacht und es gibt -wenn Du magst- eine ganz leckere Käseplatte mit dunkelrotem Pinotage ?! 


Beautiful Appartment centrally located

We stayed in one of the self-catering two bed room apartments and can highly recommend it for families, couples or friends. Lots of space, lovely interior, well equipped and a nice terrace. Also very clean and very friendly staff. It is also centrally located and in a very nice area with lots of cafes and restaurants and very close to company gardens


Very good services – and very kind people

Nine flowers created a 4 weeks program that was outstanding well organized and kept flexibility at it’s best. Would love to do a next trip with you again….to anybody: it’s not marketing, it’s real good service!


Great stay in an excellent location

My wife and I stayed for two enjoyable nights at Nine Flowers. The guest house is in a great and safe location, which is within easy access to the restaurants and bars all within walking distance. The room we stayed in was very clean, bright, comfortable and the breakfast was excellent, with very good selection to choose from. All the staff were very kind and friendly and made you feel welcome. I will most defiantly recommend this to friends and family.



Guest house very nice, rooms spacious and clean with aircon and heat. Kind hosts and guest house takes care of environment and water wasting.
Everybody was kind, secures parking just in front, breakfast good also (not exceptional) but we really enjoyed the South African specialities discovery every morning in addition of normal breakfast buffet and on demand food.
Very central place in Cape Town in a quiet and safe area. Walking distance to Long street, and Bo Kaap, and garden.
Thanks, we 200% recommend


It’s a gem!

Believe the hype, this is a lovely little bnb. Rooms are tasteful, very comfortable, spacious, and spotless! Staff is kind and helpful, owner is very solicitous – nothing was too much. Loved the breakfasts! Evidently Nine Flowers has many return guests and I hope to be one of them.


Enjoyable and welcoming

We thoroughly enjoyed staying in this lovely guest house. This was our first visit to Cape Town, and so finding such a pleasant and welcoming guest house was really appreciated. All the staff were very friendly and helpful, the rooms were pleasant and the location very convenient. I would certainly stay there again!
