Large room with view of table mountain from balcony. Breakfast was pretty haphazard service. Staff difficult to find. You eat in a small room off the main concourse. Reception staff were helpful. Found great restaurants in Cape Town but would not recommend walking back to hotel at night. Nice little shopping mall at back of hotel with yummy coffee and... More

This property is located perfectly for most activities in and around the CBD. The self-catering apartment is spacious, is furnished and has access to the gym. This rental was done through FZP Properties. The entire process of picking up the keys (although at a different location) and getting to the apartment was hassle free. The rental agents provide exact directions... More

We loved the convenience and central locations of the Rockwell. The hotel has a quant european style alley that has restaurants, bars, open area for chilling and reading, internet, etc. Pool and work out room works. Groceries across the street. Close to waterfront, Green Point, Kloof Street, hoping over the hill to Camps Bay. Will definitely stay there again!

This has been raised with the manager of the hotel who apologized and indeed the GM called to also apologize and offer a complimentary stay to show us "the real Rockwell" which was nice of them to do however sadly we have not heard anything further from him or the hotel. For the purposes of this review I wish I... More

The rooms are spacious: we were given a two bedroom suite. They're both modern and clean. There's a good breakfast which is served until 10:30. A couple of times during the stay the reception staff were inattentive, this was a shame as this could be a great hotel (really stands out considering how friendly everyone else in our trip was)....

Good location of not wanting waterfront easy access to some very good restaurants and taxi to waterfront is only 30-50 rand bargain 50 down to 40. Keep hold of your bag!

We had booked 2 rooms 313 and 413 for 3 nights in May. The 1st impressions itself was extremely shocking, in one of the bedrooms of the room 413, there were used condoms lying around. While the Service team immediately cleaned the room, it left a extremely poor and shocking impression on us, the least that they can do is... More
