Fantastic apartment with easy access to both Cape Town CBD and all tourist attractions. Apartment was extremely clean, tidy and well presented and location was amazing. Property owner was extremely helpful and provided us with some brilliant recommendations for eating out.

We could have not been any luckier to have found this cute as a button apartment in a prime location in Capetown. Jenny the owner was so responsive you did not even realized you were in a different part of the world in a different time zone. She replied to my numerous emails and provided us with tips of restaurants and the golden ticket, her personal connection of a fantastic guide. The check in and check out was effortless as we were met on arrival and departure, although it was rather late and extremely early on departure. When Jenny heard of us not getting our luggage, she was sweet enough to offer us to come by to give us some necessities to hold us over, that is taking customer service to the next level. Her apartment was fully equipped and modern, and beautifully decorated and offered all the comfort of your own home. Thank God for her washing machine and dryer so we could wash our traveling clothes since it took 2 days to get my suitcase. If our travel ever take us back to Capetown, this is the place we will return if Jenny will have us back. I have been already asked of our hotels arrangements during our stay, and I more than happily will give this address and this owner's name. Thank you Jenny for making us feel welcome, and sharing the tips to make our vacation a perfect one

“A tranquil abode with a beachy ambiance”
Reviewed October 5, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Jenny was fabulous to work with, answering all my questions before I even booked! Upon booking I got a very warm welcome email with an attachment on Internet use/access, how the rental would work and a fabulous foodie and shopping recommendation list for our stay! The management team was very professional and prompt when they met my husband and I to give us the keys and to sign off paperwork. We just fell in love with the apartment! The apartment was very clean, nicely furnished and had a very modern/beach house feel to it :). It was great having a full kitchen and washer/dryer! Location was great! The local market/general store, 'Spar' was a 1-2 minute walk away and we found everything we needed there. It is about a 15 minute walk to the V&A waterfront and we even walked to long street but you are an uber ride away if you do not want to walk. We felt very safe in the apartment and walking around during the day and at night. We mostly ubered at night since we were too full from all the yummy foods we had ;D. Cape Town is a foodie heaven and the apartment was just perfectly located for a lot of restaurants we went to. The apartment is fabulous, Jenny sent us a welcome email when We arrived and a farewell email after we left. We felt very well taken care of and looked after. I forgot to mention there's a wonderful balcony outside with a seating area to lounge and a small dining table to eat outside as well. I definitely recommend this apartment and for a first time visitors to Cape Town, we loved it so much!

“Excellent Apartment”
Reviewed August 3, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Our stay at Jenny apartment at the Rockwell Hotel was everything we hoped it would be. The apartment was delightful , clean and fully equipped. We would highly recommend this apartment. The hotel has great facilities; compact swimming pool, gym and amazing theatre. On the Saturday night we went to the Shiza show which gave us a real flavour of South Africa with singing, dancing and a great sense of humour. Service in the hotel is very welcoming. It's situated in a quirky and convenient area. Lifts take a little bit of getting used to, however, parking is very secure but be careful leaving car park as there is a steep exit. Would recommend tour information at reception as they were really helpful and recommended Binny Ridgway for an amazing walk up Table Mountain.

Very pleasant well equipped apartment in an excellent location only 15 minutes walk from the Waterfront or City centre. We stayed here for 7 nights to enjoy the delights of Cape Town and the Peninsula. We had a hire car for our 3 week trip and were concerned initially about driving in Cape Town. However the apartment was easy to find, had great secure parking and we found it very easy to negotiate our way out of town for day trips. There are some very good restaurants only 5 minutes walk away if you're lazy like us after a long days exploring and the compulsory early evening GnT. Security in the complex is great and we felt very safe. The owner Jenny provided great advice on the area and Cape Town in general.

“Fantastic in every respect”
Reviewed October 11, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We stayed for a week as our introduction to South Africa and it was fantastic. Everything is exactly as shown on the website. The area is perfectly safe and secure, and we particularly liked the fact that this is a private apartment within a boutique hotel complex - so we had every facility and all the benefits of 24 hours reception/security. The hotel staff could not have been more pleasant, friendly or helpful. The In the City people who manage the apartment were also good to deal with. They organised a complimentary clean and linen change half way through our week's stay.
The area is full of excellent shops, bars, cafes and restaurants. We were spoiled for choice.
Jenny was a delight to work with - all her communications were prompt and comprehensive - and her notes on what to see and do in Cape Town were an added bonus. She was very reassuring about our safety concerns.
Everything in the apartment is of top quality - and everything works!
The Spar supermarket in the Cape Quarter met our every need for self-catering.
The location is excellent for most of the key attractions - either an easy walk, or a cheap taxi ride.
Without hesitation we would strongly recommend this apartment to another couple, or a single person - and would stay here again in a heartbeat.

“Excellent in all regards”
Reviewed September 5, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

This was our first visit to SA and our first eight days were spent at this apartment. The apartment is as advertised but the best part was the response from the owner. From our first inquiry to our last goodbye, Jenny was prompt and professional. She answered all our questions and more. All her instructions for arrival were easy to follow. Her management company that met us also provided professional and friendly service and welcoming details to both the apartment and Capetown.

Like others we found the location ideal and the secured parking an added bonus. Everyone at the Rockwell was friendly and helpful.

Highly recommended.
