This excuse for a hotel should be rated as "Avoid at all costs". The room seemed run down, dirty, with a musty smell. The service isn't bad but that is because there is no service at all. Our room was never serviced, we had to deal with leaking water from the shower in the bathroom, the air conditioning didn't work,... More

Dear Christo B. Your review is not of our Hotel but of a private apartment you booked through a private owner or agent in the Hotel Building. THIS IS NOT A TRUE REVIEW of the hotel. We urge all guests to ensure when they book on line to please confirm that they are indeed staying at the ROCKWELL HOTEL and... More

Great place to stay in Cape Town. Lovely stuff and great apartments. Apartments are also good for sharing with a friend or two. Location is perfect and there is good grocery store near by! Gas station and few clubs can get bit noisy on the mountain side, but it did not bother us. Will definitely recommend Rockwell to others! :-)

This apart/hotel is ideally located easy walking distance from city centre and v&a waterfront, always a taxi waiting outside,rooms are lovely, loses a small bit with swimming pool which was small and needs fixing up other than that it's perfect! Oh and lovely pina coladas!

My partner and I stayed here for three nights at the end of our SA trip. We had a one bedroom apartment on the first floor so no special views from our room, just the local primary school. The room has its own kitchen/ living room area, large balcony and separate bedroom. Kitchen comes with all you might need -... More

Great Hotel!! Will most definitely stay there again. Great location for guests to explore the best part of Cape Town. We had guests from overseas, and what a pleasure to take them to the Rockwell All Suite Hotel. Planning our next trip very soon.

We (our family of 4 adults) stayed at the Rockwell for our 3 nights in Cape Town and thoroughly enjoyed it. This is a very classy accommodation, consisting of large, well-furnished apartments that are run very much as a first class hotel. The location was extremely convenient to walk to most of the sights in Cape Town as well as... More

The hotel is in a great location and you can easily walk to the waterfront and into the city. We stayed in a 2 bedroom suite which was large with a kitchen. The beds were comfortable, basic stuff in the kitchen but we didn't use it, washing machine and dryer which was good after a week on safari in Kruger.... More

Don't expect too much from your stay at Rockwell. Nicely positioned for the sights of Cape town, and a good bar area in the lobby, but that's about it. The rooms and furnishings need an upgrade, the staff are slow to follow through on deficiencies (ie the wifi remained unavailable in my room throughout a 12 day stay in spite... More

The Rockwell is the ideal location for someone who, like us, wants to play in the city on a week end or for the businessman who needs to be close to the CBD but also prefers to be in a relaxed part of town where one can walk to restaurants etc. Our apartment was very well appointed with a stunning...

I was supposed to be staying here long term for work requirements but eventually left to find better accommodation. Do not believe the pictures on the website, this place is in desperate need of a reinvestment of furniture and management and it baffles me that there are recent 5 star reviews. The room furniture is old, stained, mis-matched and either... More

Dear Guest. (please advise who you are) It is with the utmost sadness that I read your review of our hotel. It is also regrettable that you have such a perception of me personally and launched such a personal attack when in fact like you say, we never met. More especially when I, like my staff, pour our heart and... More
