“Upmarket and well located”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 November 2013

Very nice place located just off Long street. Quite well setup inside with many upmarket features. Excellent staff and good security. Many restaurants, bars and pubs in the area and its a short walk to the waterfront shopping and tourist areas. Fantastic view of Table mountain. I would definitely stay again.
P.s
I didn't have any issues with noise, even over the weekend.

Room Tip: I stayed in 505. It does not overlook Long st so that may be why it was quiet.

A very good experience. Parking was organised when I arrived. The staff (Andile) was very helpful and professional. You might consider to change the plug on the one hair drier to a three prong. Please leave instructions on how to operate the safe at the safe. I made a mistake but Andile assisted.

Dear Helena B

Thank you so much for your feedback on your stay at Flatrock Suites. We do value all the feed back we get. I have instructed the staff to ensure that all safes have instructions on how to operate it and that it is place next to the safe in clear view to enable the guests to view it while operationg the safe. Also a very good suggestion that we change at least one of the hairdryers to have a three prong plug. So hopefully when you do stay with us again it will be more comfortable. Thank you for staying at Flatrock Suites.

Kind regards

Renier Snyman

I really loved the place its as beautiful as it looks on the pictures. Very clean, I had forgotten my jacket and the staff called me to inform me I was really impressed. It was cold though, the floor heating seemed not to work properly.

Well equipped and furnished apartments with a lovely view and excellent service and staff. Clean and comfortable. Unfortunately it is situated above an extremely noisy nightclub and even though we were on the 7th floor, the din made our stay almost unbearable. Not recommended for families or older couples.

Unbelievable value for money. Located in the heart of Cape Town this fully equipped self catering establishment is a boon to travellers who want to be where the action is. The nearby Bars and restaurants are very lively but the noise can be a problem as the music blares till 3 am. Security in the Building is good and Andre at reception a great help.

Room Tip: the rooms facing Buiten street have a lovely balcony overlooking Table MOUNTAIN

ideal for families visiting during the winter .easy walk to most city bowl attractions. But be prepared for noisy weekends as night clubs next door open for business. Fantastic mountain views. be back here for our next holiday
