About Rose Lodge
Rose Lodge & 22 on Rose are located in Rose Street and Wale Lodge is in Wale Street 5 minutes away. They are 3 small, cosy guesthouses located close to one another in the colorful historic Muslim "Malay Quarter" known as the Bo-Kaap in Cape Town, just below Signal Hill and the Noon Day Gun ... an authentic canon fired every day at midday! It is one of the oldest residential areas in the city. This is where slaves brought mainly from Java in the 17th and 18th century settled. The area has its own unique old world charm.
Whether on business or pleasure, it's an ideal location from which to explore the city. Bo-Kaap with its cobbled streets and houses painted in a myriad of rainbow colours is on your doorstep. We are a mere 5 minute walk to the downtown area, museums, shops and Green Market Square full of African artefacts and souvenirs.
The fashionable and trendy De Waterkant Village is also just around the corner with its boutiques, restaurants, and nightlife. And Cape Town's International Convention Centre and world famous Victoria & Alfred Waterfront are also within walking distance or a short ride away.
The old renovated Malay houses have been completely modernized with small en-suite bedrooms which can accommodate 2 people.
Serviced daily, equipped with TV, free WiFi in the communal area, clock radio, hairdryer, safe, and air-conditioning/heating, we offer all you need for a comfortable and perfectly positioned home away from home.
Complimentary coffee and tea facilities are available day and night in the kitchens.
We provide a laundry service if required and can arrange your airport transfers, Cape tours, or car hire for you with our respected service providers and highly competitive tariffs. We are dog friendly and a non-smoking guesthouse. A substantial Continental breakfast is served every morning.
We are fortunate in having some of Cape Town's finest restaurants just across the street. Savoy Cabbage, Bizerca, and Marco's African restaurant to name but are within walking distance and Cape Quarter in De Waterkant is a lively and must see venue for dinner or drinks.
English, Zulu, Corsa, French, and German are spoken.
Rose Lodge has been mentioned in The Lonely Planet, Cape Town Edition 2006:
“Inside a grey-painted corner house in the Bo-Kaap is this cute B&B. The Canadian owner likes to play the piano and has two adorable dogs. There are just three cosy rooms (with private bathrooms) all decorated in contemporary style.”
