These units had everything we look for in self catering apartments; space, comfort and cleanliness - right in the heart of Cape Town, walking distance to the major attractions. Andile and staff made sure we had everything we required for our 4 night stay - and all done with a smile. Yes, they are in the night club area, but... More

My friends and I stayed at Flatrock for 3 days in June 2014. The place was like home away from home for me. When we got the the first night, it was too cold and they provided us with 2 extra heaters. The decoder became faulty and it was immediately replaced. House keeping was amazing, they made sure that cleaning... More

what a bargain. Right in center of town, great wiew to Table mountain, cheap, clean and lot of space. And VERY helpsom and friendly staff (Andile). Next to Long street, in one of the bedrooms music / noise from there until 04.00 every night, okay with us, but maybe not with all. GREAT stay.

If you want to be close to the night life this is the place to be. The only negative really is the couch in the lounge needs attention. The apartment is spacious and well stocked. Everything was clean and neat. The music from Long Street is loud when sitting on the balcony but as soon as you close the door... More

Stayed at flat 905. This is a spacious 2 bedroom luxury appartment with a splendid view on Table Mountain from the big terrace. All equipment / furniture new and top quality. Location in the night club area. Good for me but not for people who are noise sensitive. Ununderstandably there as no wifi.

My husband and I stayed 3 nights at this apartment. I booked with agoda and didn't notice that the price is for 1 person only, I ended up pay additional ZAR270/night for extra person, although breakfast is not provided. Could hardly sleep well because of the music from bars downstairs. The apartment looks old and gloomy, it is different from... More

Please do not book in here if you have a family. Night clubs will keep you awake till at least 5h00. Very very modern and comfortable place. Ideally for young people who like clubbing. Very safe, neat place. But the view is into backyards of clubs and restaurants. Not something you would like to see especially if it is so... More

Definately the best place to stay in Cape Town. Friendly, efficient staff attending to all our needs from calling us a taxi to helping us with our luggage. We traveled with our 1 year old and the rooms & balcony were spacious, safe and clean and child friendly. The views were simply breathtaking and the location is perfect with everything... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The spectacularly beautiful city of Cape Town, in Southern Africa, is home to FlatRock Suites. Here, just off Long Street – the street that never sleeps – you’ll find this unique combination of luxury apartments… serviced in hotel style.FlatRock Suites provides you with the privacy and independence of apartmentliving combined with many of the services that you would expect from a top-class hotel… including changes of linen, daily service, concierge, reception and more.It’s known as an “Aparthotel” with each suite comfortably furnished, fully equipped but so much more spacious and comfortable than a hotel room would be. All of which combines to make excellent budgeting sense… for holidays or lifestyle living.The location, at the top end of the town, was chosen specifically because it has one of the most soughtafter views in the world… a close-up of the breathtaking Table Mountain. ... more   less
