A friend of mine and I stayed here for two nights and booked it very last minute - and man were we impressed. Not only is the house beautiful, the interior decorating is stunning and well planned out - comfy beds, free coffee, a common dining area, etc... and the host Lucia and the supervisor Stocking were absolutely stellar, and so helpful. It's truly an affordable and exceptional spot, whenever I come back to Capetown I'll be sure to stay again.

Harpers House was true to its description! Lovely renovated house with great staff. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here! Great location, within walking distance to the Harbour Front, Sea point and the City. Our hosts Lucia and Stocking were very welcoming and gave us great tips on what we could do around the city. We would definitely recommend staying here while in Cape Town and will be coming back next time we are in town.
