Score from 396 reviews Very good
The wifi tends to be a little slow. There was no variation in the breakfast menu from day to day.
The room and bathroom are beautiful. It is quiet and very homely.
Each room is uniquely furnished with exquisite pieces collected from all over the world and a night or two in the Moroccan suite is a wonderful experience which I will definitely be repeating. Gabriella is a warm and gracious hostess and the breakfasts were very good. Highly recommended.
Cannot say... Evthg was perfect.
Graziella has been a great host! Kind and gave me a lot of useful info about Cape Town. Great rooms and excellent matress. Wonderful breakfast! I know where to stay next time I'll be in Cape Town. Thanks.
Ambience, location and owner. Amazing lady !
Great location, very comfortable beds, nice linen and décor, friendly accommodating hostess
Graziela, the owner is really nice and hosted us even if it was late at night. Very nice room with beautiful furnitures. Good breakfast. The smile and the kindness of Graziela.
You immediately feel at home at this lovely place. It's decorated in a very original way setting it off from the typical modern hotel. Graziella, the Italian owner, is very friendly and helpful. Noteworthy is also that also very centrally located, the place is calm at night.
Nothing, Gabriella is really trying to make you comfortable.
Lovely owner, free wifi, private parking and nice breakfast. Perfect place to visit Cape Town and the Cape.
Joint breakfast with other guests and African style of family room. Proximity to harbour front, quiet area and not to forget Graziella as host.
This place is awesome!! The room is so unique And has all you need Breakfast special as well Just go there :-)
Feeling like you stay at home, thanks to the warmness and kindness of the owner, and at the same time, feeling like you're travelling all around the world, thanks to the rooms' setting, that's the way you feel at the Vagabond!
The family suite is highly recommended for families with slightly older children (ours are 9 and 6), as there are 2 inner rooms and a bathroom inside the main door of the suite, which means the children can sleep separately from the parents. The rooms were warm, clean and very attractively decorated with lots of quirky African art. Graziella was very friendly and the breakfast made a good start to the day. The guesthouse is located a short walk from the sea promenade and the football stadium; you can walk to the V&A Waterfront in about 25 minutes. Table Mountain is about a 15 minute drive from there. We would definitely stay at the Vagabond again and recommend it to others!
There is no lounge, therefore you have to stay at your room.
We had the familyroom which was actually two rooms behind one door. Very suitable for our family with teenaged kids. Rooms were nicely decorated. Host was very kind. Good breakfast. Close to the waterfront (5 min. by car)
Very clean rooms which are exotically decorated and very comfortable. Great hospitality, we really felt welcome. Waterfront is on walking distance (20 minutes). Complete breakfast in a cosy style. Private parking in front of the Vagabond.
Fabulous and exotic, perhaps the best boutique guest house we have ever stayed in and certainly the most memorable. Everything was incredibly fabulous! Each of the 5 rooms are uniquely decorated in different themes--we stayed in the Morocco/Africa room--and I loved the beautiful ethnic objects d'art placed there. None of them are for sale, but I could have bought them all for my own house in the United States. In fact, the entire guest house was filled with collections from their travels and serves almost as an ethnographic museum. The beds were very comfortable and we had great sleeps. The bath was recently redecorated with modern and upgraded facilities; towels with toiletries were tied in a ribbon. Graziella, the owner, is a lovely Italian woman who speaks English (and Italian) and was enchanting to talk to. Breakfasts (included) consisted of fresh fruit (with a sprig of mint) and yogurt, cereal, and the most scrumptious home-made croissants (by Graziella--I didn't know that people still do this.) The neighborhood was quiet and within a wonderful 20-minute walk to the Waterfront. This was our first visit to Cape Town and we plan to return next Spring and will definitely book our stay with The Vagabond Guest House.
very friendly an nice staff, location in walking distance to a couple of restaurants (3 min) and waterfront (20 min), good breakfast selection, nice rooms in a quiet area
Nothing to dislike, but worth noting that it is very much room only and outside of breakfast there is no real access to anything other than your room. I couldn't get the wifi to work, but I didn't pursue it as it wasn't a problem for me
Nicely decorated, exotic and colourful. Friendly atmosphere at breakfast. Well located by the coast - felt nice and safe without being in an area of any obvious high security presence. Very clean spacious bedroom and bathroom. I would definitely return.
Nothing bad to say. Graziella is a wonderful person and made our staying great. Thanks Graziella :-)
we were made to feel very welcome. the room was lovely.
Tv did not work
lack of variety in breakfast
the friendly hostess.The eastern ambience.
Despite I already had 3 weeks eggs for breakfast, I missed the eggs at the Vagabond's breakfast.
Spotless clean room, comfy bed, beautiful decorated, and Graziella (the owner) is very friendly. Good , real Italian, coffee!
The friendly host and clean rooms and the tranquillity combined with the location. It is a great place to stay and will go back.
The Vagabond is a charming BB that has been very well maintained. The location is excellent we walked to the V&A Waterfront from there which was a pretty route along the coast (however if you cut across past stadium shorter route). Also the host recommended us local restaurants where the food was delicious.
