This hotel was perfect for a base to explore Cape Town if you want to see some lively nightlife too. Walkable to most of the city attractions and close to the tourist bus routes too. We stayed in May which isn't peak season but the rates were really reasonable as a result.

We had booked an apartment in The Rockwell Hotel and found that this was a very pleasant and well-situated hotel. The apartment was spacious and comfortable. Its location turned out to be superb: in the Waterkant area, with good connections to the Waterfront and the downtown area.

With all the conveniences of a hotel, yet a homely environment. Stylish modern furnishes in Greenpoint. Great base for working in the city. Staff very helpful and friendly. Nice restaurants down stairs as well as cocktail bar and theatre.

Average accommodation, suited close to noisy bar/restaurant facilities. Pool chlorine was strong and burnt children's eyes. Breakfast was average, service was also average, dissappointed by room quality and the noise

First time in my life that in a 4 star hotel (in fact any star hotel), I was told to use a flat plate for yoghurt when I asked for more cereal bowls? The staff are very dismissive when you have the audacity to complain about anything. What 4 star hotel does not replace toiletries, tea coffee, clean bathrooms, empty... More

1 Bedroom apartment, nice balcony (although it faced Prestwich street) Complimentary wi-fi for 1 hour per day, thereafter for your own expense :-( Drinking glasses in the apartment can be bigger than the mini-tumblers provided Cleaning staff to pay attention to the replenishment of toiletries

We have stayed here during the Volvo Ocean Race Stopover. The rooms where very nice and well maintained. Hotel people where very friendly and the breakfast was splendid. Very clean and up to date. Close to the V&A waterfront and very affordable.

I come to Cape Town every year and it is always difficult to find accommodation. The Rockwell Hotel was kind enough to host me for a few weeks the excellent service and friendly staff was refreshing.

Hotels in a good location can be pricey in Cape Town but for an extended stay this was very reasonable. You can walk to the waterfront or the main areas of the city (Green Market) in less than 15 minutes (we just did this in the day time) Reception are great at ringing taxis in the evening for you and...
