I stayed at the Lions Self Catering Guest House, and I had a phenomenal experience. First off, the house was extremely clean. It had a kitchen and a laundry room so everything was very convenient. Every day there was a guy, Sika, in the front who always helped me out on my tours …

We stayed for 4 nights in the lions room which had all basics and was clean enough. The location is pretty awesome with lots of restaurant and bar options in walking distance so that you don't even need a cab at night. Parking is also available on the property for 2 cars. But wha…

Response from Antony:
Hi Marco Thank you for your review. Unfortunately I was not in Cape Town for the 4 days that you stayed at the lions guest house. My manager Sybil, and duty managers Lwazi and Sipho were all on duty during your stay. I am happy to hear that you found the manager to be really helpful by providing you with lots of information. I am not sure where in the city bowl you will be able to find cheaper options as we have researched the costs very carefully before setting our rates in terms of value for money and prime location. If you decide to stay again, I would be happy to try and arrange that I am in Cape Town to meet you and provide you with personal service. I hope the memories of Cape Town will remain for many years to come. With Cape Town Greetings Antony
