We rented through an agency but would rent direct if we did it again. The neighborhood is nice, walking distance to the V&A Waterfront. Some apartments had a view of Table Mountain but ours didn't. On the weird things if you are in a interior apartment your bathroom and bedroom 'window' is only to the indoor lobby area. It wasn't... More

They make you pay for internet and then it doesn't work, I complained several times and they didn't seem to care. Upon checking out I spoke with the manager and he assured me of a $52 refund which I have yet to see. Some of our rooms had bugs and no a/c. Go somewhere else...

The security guard watched us struggle up a long flight of steps with heavy suitcases -a taste of what was to come. We had a penthouse suite, but the beds were not the best quality, the pillows a tiny block of soft fluff, and one of our three rooms was in the main communal area -hardly the luxury we had... More

I stayed with 2 friends of mine in a 2 bedroom 2 bath apartment at the Rockwell this past late February/early March 2015 or 9 nights. I have to say upon check in everything went smooth especially after taking a 23 hour airplane ride to get to Cape Town. I received my request of a high room facing the ocean... More

We booked only B&Bs for our trip through SA which were all quite well. For the last night we thought a nice hotel would be fine. But unfortunately we had one of the appartment adjacent to a main road and above a garage as well there was a restaurant playing live music all night long. Even with the windows closed... More

Based on other reviews, I expected this to be a 4- or 5-star hotel experience, but I have to rate it simply "average" after our 3-day trip to Cape Town with our family. We booked this hotel due to its proximity to the Waterfront and easy access to Table Mountain, the aquarium, and other sights we wanted to see with... More

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.
