De Waterkant, Cape Town Central - Accommodation
Afribode Rockefellers in De Waterkant
The fabulously chic Cape Quarter lifestyle precinct and trendy, gay-friendly cobbled streets of De Waterkant are a mere stone’s throw from the Rockwell Apartment Hotel, which is tucked down a leafy side street. It’s a very desirable area of Cape Town with very high priced residential properties, so enjoy your time here in the most sought after part of the city.
From your huge balcony, there is an eye-blasting view of Table Mountain’s flat top while in the foreground are new and historic city buildings and a school playground. While you do have your own dedicated parking inside the building, it’s an easy walk from Rockefellers Apartment to see the sights.
In just 5 minutes’ walk you will reach a host of local restaurants, cafés, nightclubs and bars and in 10-15 minutes you’ll get to V&A Waterfront, Cape Town Stadium, Bo-Kaap Malay Quarter, central business district, Cape Town International Convention Centre, Greenmarket Square, Bree Street and Long Street known for specialist eateries and quirky shops.
You’ll need a car to reach Table Mountain cableway (5½km uphill) and Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, Constantia Winelands, Seapoint Promenade and Camps Bay and Clifton Beaches. It’s a day trip along Chapman’s Peak Drive to Cape Point, Cape of Good Hope, Simon’s Town and Boulders Penguins. The family-friendly beaches of False Bay are really worth a visit and while you are at it, the quirky coastal towns of Kalk Bay and Muizenberg. There’s so much to do that you’d better book at least a week’s holiday in Cape Town!
You are going to love coming home to Rockefellers Apartment with its two well-sized bedrooms (king and twin beds) each with a bathroom (with shower or bath), fully equipped kitchen with black granite worktops, café-style table and washing machine. There’s a comfy lounge with sliding doors onto the huge balcony with its 8-seater table. Inside you can relax on the L-shaped leather sofa facing the TV with full satellite channels, DVD and Wifi.
This is a high quality apartment hotel with an atrium giving natural light for large planter boxes making the common areas very attractive. Right across the corridor from your front door is the gym overlooking an indoor lap-pool. But you may not need to keep yourself fit in this way when there are plenty of hills to climb, oceans to swim and promenades to jog.
Your access disc enables entry into the building and the lifts won’t work without swiping this, so security is excellent. On the ground floor is the Rockwell Hotel reception, bar and restaurant with a charming outside courtyard.
We at Afribode look after your booking from the time you enquire to the time you check in and out. Our office is in central Cape Town and we’ll give you a personal Meet & Greet when you arrive at Rockefellers Apartment.

Reviews for Afribode Rockefellers
Friendly staff but that's it... Room needs to be upgraded cupboards and bedroom and bathroom are broken and need replacing bath in the bathroom is clogged an when I reported it I was on my way to the shops 4hours later my room still had not been cleaned and the bath still clogged... The cupboards in the kitchen are sticky and smudged so not cleaned when we checked in... Actually very disappointing... Not worth staying in this hotel...
We had such a great time at the hotel. Staff is friendly. Rooms met our expectations. What you see on the website is what you get at the hotel. I would definitely recommend it to my friends . Thank you so much to the staff and management.
Our stay at the hotel was amazing,the room,the breakfast was to die for and the stuff members so kind. We had a great weekend and enjoyed our stay.would refer this place any day
Locked Down Toilets for Visitors to the Hotel - Shocking treatment of visitors to the beautiful city of Cape Town. By instruction of the Hotel Owner the toilets are locked - unless you are a guest in the hotel with special assess disc. while the hotel operate an open bar and common area open for external visitors there are no public toilets with visitors being denied access.Is it legal ? never mind degrading for anyone experience...
Amazing experience, service and the most beautiful Diamonds I have ever seen
Very professional staff and good enough coffee. I am curious about the theatre offering
Booked Rockwell hotel with the intention of asking my long time girlfriend to marry me. View was nice room was nice. Everything went well until we wanted to eat and do the evening. Service is abominable, they essentially took a special day away from me and my 9 year girlfriend. If you're planning an engagement and a special day of any kind. DO NOT DO IT AT THE ROCKWELL. Honest to God pick another place
Easy access and walking distance to city centre, yoga studio and small shopping mall for quick stop to get food. Spar offers great fresh food selection with healthy food options. Great restaurant with atm in lobby. Secure with lap pool and gym.
Don't be fooled by the outside appearance, this hotel is top class and great value for money.Friendly and helpful staff. Very clean rooms with fully equipped kitchens (used a 2 bedroomed apartment). Only downside is all the basins and tubs have had their stoppers removed in a bid to help the city save water. So expect to use only the shower in all rooms
A really nice flat in the city, a very comfortable stay.
