HELICOPTER VIEWS | Upscale modern studio high up in Art Deco security block in the Queen Victoria St Embassy District. 5-Star Location.
Breathtaking views of Table Mountain over Company Gardens, with the whole city your feet and in walking distance.

The space

Astonishing helicopter views of Table Mountain with upscale modern interior, including orthopaedic double-bed, super-comfy sofa and original art. Work desk with excellent wi-fi and smart TV with Netflix in one of the best possible locations in the city.

Guest access

The whole place is yours, with the city centre and gardens at your feet. Fully-equipped kitchenette with fridge, microwave, cooker, kettle and toaster. High-end bathroom with long vanity and large rain shower with a view.

Interaction with guests

We do also live in the building (best address in the city), so our 'insider' advice is just a phone-call or text message away - but we'll stay out of your hair :)

Other things to note

Holyrood is one of the most famous and iconic Art Deco buildings in Cape Town, and has featured in articles, books and film.

There is no parking on premises, meaning you'll fend for parking on the street - which is safe in our street. Parking is metered during the day only, and not on Sundays.

Clean, convenient space in a great location for exploring Cape Town. Can't beat the value.

This was my second time staying in the Hollyrood- the first was in Robert's other suite in the building. I opted for the slightly larger, and equally comfortable 7th floor unit. The view of Devil's Peak and the Company's Garden is spectacular from both, and a lovely way to wake up each morning. The unit is bright and clean with full kitchen (if you're inclined to cook with so many good restaurants nearby), comfortable bed, and a cozy sitting area to relax. Walking through the gardens is delightful on a sunny day, and being an avid walker, I found almost everything in easy walking distance. For anything further afield, I used Uber. Robert left clear instructions on entering the building and suite, as well as providing wifi access code, and was prompt to reply to messages. I highly recommend this suite for a pleasant stay in the Mother City.

A wonderful apartment in a gorgeous neighbourhood. Just across the street from this charming building is one of the most beautiful gardens I've ever seen, with a lovely restaurant. That alone makes this apartment ideal. And two blocks in the other direction is a bustling street (the noise from which doesn't come into the apartment) full of shops and restaurants and city life. As a woman travelling alone, the apartment felt very safe and secure. It's a bit on the smaller side but it was perfect for me. Very clean. And Robert was very prompt and helpful in all his responses. I would definitely stay here again.

Everything was good ! The apartment, the neighbourhood, the view, the comfort. Very nice time in Cape Town but we had a problem with an alarm system ringing during the night from a Safari booking company in the back street for 2-3 nights... Nothing to do with Robert. Really good spot in a magnificent building.

First time in 701 after a couple of trips to 504 before. This apartment is renovated and modern so a lovely open studio apartment with sensational views, comfortable bed and nice work desk (if you're unlucky enough to have to work while you're in CT).
