Staff at the Rockwell were all extremely helpful and very efficient. Check in and check out was speedy and the facilities are everything one would expect. Rooms are comfortable and the setting is great as the Cape Quarter really is a central hub for all Cape Town has to offer. Can recommend these Hotel apartments to anyone.

The lovely personable nature of the staff made for a very happy visit and a home away from home. Excellent apartment for our family of six. Lovely food and we thoroughly enjoyed our time at the Rockwell All Suite Hotel. The tours were wonderful as well which the concierge at the apartments organised.

I spent four months completing doctoral research in Cape Town, and I was lucky enough to have found the Rockwell. Although I rented a private apartment in the building, I spent hours hanging out in the communal spaces including the restaurant, lobby bar, and beautiful outside eating and sitting area. I can’t say enough about the professionalism of Colin and... More

I booked a three-bedroom penthouse three months in advance for a family get-together to coincide with a graduation ceremony that we had to attend. One day before arrival I was phoned to say that this penthouse was no longer available due to "plumbing problems" and that we will have to take two separate two-bedroom apartments instead. We were assured that... More

The accommodation is excellent, the location of the hotel is absolutely perfect due to its centrality, ease of access to city, highway - but its not totally in the thick of the crowds and traffic. Our first room's aircon broke, but they moved us to a different room the next day. Highly recommend this hotel and would love to stay... More

we took a three bed penthouse even though we are only a couple because the rooms/apartments were all taken. Location os great and car park safe and cheap. we enjoyed our stay. The aprtment could be cleaner but towels and sheets all no problem. Just needs a little tightening up and supervisin to make it very good indeed.

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

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!
