The Charles Guesthouse

Watch the African sun go down behind the mountain and the city light up at night from the spectacular roof deck at The Charles guesthouse in De Waterkant Village. This intimate and charming guesthouse is ideally set opposite the piazza style shopping mall, Cape Quarter, near to the V&A Waterfront, Green Point Park, Cape Town Stadium and CTICC. De Waterkant itself offers a mix of Georgian, Dutch and Asian architecture in eclectic 1760s streets, lined with artisanal cafés, theatrical restaurants and boutique stores.

Start your day with a breakfast at the Village Café, with whom the guesthouse has special arrangements. Book a funky and bright fat tyre or fixie bike from Spitfire directly at the guesthouse’s reception and use it to explore the neighbourhood and surrounds. A short trip will have you at a number of Cape Town’s top attractions. For a day of sun-soaked relaxing, make use of your complimentary Sandy B beach club membership in Camps Bay.

The Charles guesthouse is built in what used to be three adjacent historical houses, now completely renovated, they still boast the Georgian façade. Guests can choose between Classic, Premier and Traveller’s Rooms, the latter being perfect for budget travellers looking for more discerning backpackers accommodation.
