Enjoyed our stay! Clean, quiet, great location in the city. Amenities are worth mentioning- mini fridge, bathroom sink, bolted safe, plenty of closet space and free wifi. Peter was pleasant & helpful when needed. Only disappointment was not booking for a longer stay!

Altona Lodge is located in a good neighbourhood, near good restaurants and the sea. The room I stayed in was confortable and clean. Peter, Wendy and the rest of the staff are friendly and always willing to help. I had a great stay at the place.

Altona Lodge can't be beaten if you are looking for Bed and Breakfast accommodation in Cape Town. It's a great location within walking distance of both The Waterfront and the City Centre in a safe and pretty street. I stayed in a very comfortable ensuite room with excellent facilities. The cleanliness and service was great and the breakfast just amazing...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Altona’s biggest advantage is its location. The accommodation offered is at ‘entry level’ and we frequently refer to it as ‘two steps up from a Backpackers’.
