The apartment is great. The downstairs bar/cafe is provides great coffee, food, music, and most important, friendly staff. I had the best time in Cape Town and the amazing location and character of the upstairs flat was a huge contribution. The booking manager provided little to no help. Tapiwa, a bar staff member that is the main liaison for maintenance/cleaning/etc. is the best. I will miss my morning latte and pastry dearly.

Response from Georgia (Zedre - Booking Manager):
I would just like to respond to the comment regarding the wi-fi. We are experiencing issues with the service provider with regards to the quality of reception in our building. We responded to each of Benjamin's enquiries via email to explain the situation to him. At no time did we tell him to just deal with it. Georgia also sent an email to apologise for the lack of the wi-fi at certain periods and offered a meal to try and compensate.

We had a wonderful two nights at Stay True! The apartment was so warm and chic, we felt right at home. The king bed was super comfy! Very close to the best bars and restaurants. The movies on the hard drive were great and we really enjoyed the complimentary bottle of wine. A little disappointed that one of the listed amenities was breakfast yet when we arrived we were told it was no longer offered. None the less, we had a blast and can't wait to come back!

This place is very central, so if you're looking for a good spot to have fun and enjoy Cape Towns bars and clubs, you will definitely want to stay here. There's a cafe under the AirBnB where you can eat delicious food. The staff is also very friendly and helpful!

Amazing Airbnb experience. They go above and beyond to make you feel welcomed. The apartment is unbelievable. And small attention to detail like movies on the hard drive is appreciated.

We had a great stay at the Stay True accommodation. Tapiwa mades us feel very welcome. And the bottle of wine and vouchers to spend in the bar downstairs were such a nice gesture! It's the perfect place to discover Cape Town and it's nightlife!

Staying in the truly apartment above the bar was amazing. Thanks for the wine and the voucher. Tapiwa is such a nice guy and was an excellent host. We felt us very much at home. I'm sure we will come back...
