Airport transfer

The best way to enter the city is via cab or with a private driver. The best solution: send us your flight number and our driver will pick you up for a special rate of 385 ZAR (approx. 26€). UBER is also a fast and easy alternative.


Sleep as long as you want! We offer breakfast in our in-house restaurant The Piano Bar from 7am to 12pm. Delicious Omeletts and Fruit Salads as well as may more amazing dishes.


Fill up your minibar with whatever you want. Of course the first filling is complimentary – our cordially welcome.


The best for our guest! Shampoo, soap, crème and shower gel – all organic products made by the local luxury brand Charlotte Rhys – are yours every day.


If you bring along your car you can easily use the garage opposite from our hotel at Jarvis Street. Daily rate is ZAR 150 (approx. € 10). The best way is you come along, take a rest and we guide you to the parking. If you do park on the street, please make sure you don’t leave any belongings inside your car.


Can you imagine anything better than having a drink at the pool on our roof top viewing the Table Mountain? You don´t have a clue? We neither. Let´s get up there to our SKYBAR. By the way: the prospect gets more impressive with each drink you have.

Laundry service

A spot on your dress? A smudge on your shirt? No problem. We spirit it off… overnight.


This is the only thing we cannot offer. When this historic house has been built in the 19th century that unfortunately was not standard. As it is a heritage building we are not allowed to change the structure. THE GREY is not suitable for wheelchairs.


On your way in Cape Town, but not by foot? There are three ways: taxi, UBER and “MyCiti bus” – these minibuses with the yellow stripe on the side. Ask us for tips – or we simply call a driver for you.
