Flatrock suites are very sizeable serviced apartments in the centre of Cape Town, wonderfully situated for exploring the town. Also perfectly convenient for the nearby night club that set the floorboards vibrating through 6am making sleep a little difficult. So check whether the room is near the nightclub side and if an event is on.

When one visits a city such as Cape Town, it's easy to get sucked into a night or 5 on the town with little or no sleep in between. This is one of the many reasons to stay in FlatRock Suites. Not only are you offered a room with a view of Long street (so you can pick your poison... More

I hate the location. And the service is too poor. The cleaning staff don't put an effort on what they do. The place is dirty immediately when you enter the reception. I was dissapointed I don't wanna lie.

What a fantastic experience Flatrock Suites was! I want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart for the incredible service we received throughout our stay - from Andile and Hati in the front office, all the security officers and all housekeeping staff. We are so very happy with the service received and the way we were made... More

I've stayed before at this apartment. Interior needs refreshing. Noise from the renovations on the building made this stay not enjoyable though. They really should put up a notice on the booking websites warning people of this

The apartment smelt of cigarette smoke, and the carpets were not very clean. The worst aspect was the location of the block, which is next to various night clubs and music cafes. As none of the windows had double glazing, it was possible to hear every word coming from the street. When the clubs started up, it was not possible... More

I stayed at Flatrock Suites for about five days. I found the apartment to be clean, spacious and it had everything I needed to enjoy my stay in cape Town. I arrived on a Saturday night and the party was already in full swing. I thoroughly enjoyed the party scene on long street and appreciated that I could then walk(with... More

I cancelled my booking for Jan 2016. I made my booking through hotels. Com and was supposed to have free cancellation. They deducted a 50% dep on booking . I eventually got 80% returned after 7 weeks of multiple emails and phone calls. Hotels.com gave me no assistance and I will never use them again either

These apartment are situated in the heart of CPT. interesting to see the real people and the real life of this city, beside the touristic Waterfront. Actually, its only negative aspect is the distance to the waterfront.... It is effectively noisy in weekend, so ask for higher level and bring ear plugs to be sure. Great sight from the huge...

Great apartment. Has everything you could need! Decorated nicely. Close to long street (not sure if that is good or bad) and within walking distance or short cab rides to attractions. All the review mention the noise, I downplayed it. It goes on all night long. If it's not the music from the bars on long street it it the... More
