Live on the Cusp of Coffee, Culture, Cocktails & Cuisine
Location & Lifestyle

The Rose on 117 is ideally located at the interface of De Waterkant and the CBD, on the northern fringe of the Bokaap. This transitional setting lends itself to a lifestyle of fun and cultural exploration, and makes a perfect base for travellers who want an authentic experience of this fascinating part of the Mother City.

Just a few minutes walk opens up the coolly cosmopolitan De Waterkant quarter, the vibrant nightlife of the Somerset Road strip, the galleries and restaurants of Bree Street, and the pubs and clubs of Long and Loop Streets. All the attractions of the V&A Waterfront, including the internationally acclaimed Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa, are also within an easy stroll.

For those wishing to immerse themselves in the cultural life of the city there could be no better base. Foodies and art lovers will be spoiled for choice, with a feast of eateries, galleries and studios virtually on their doorstep.

From a transport point of view, the location offers excellent connectivity, lying just off Buitengracht, which links to the N1 and N2 freeways, and Strand Street, a major route linking the very centre of Cape Town to the Atlantic Seaboard suburbs of Green Point and Sea Point. 

The adjoining 117 on Strand offers a Pick n Pay supermarket and a flagship Planet Fitness gym, while the rooftop amenities of The Rose itself will offer an unsurpassed venue for pool-side relaxation, with the incredible spectacle of Devil’s Peak, Table Mountain and Lion’s Head, rising majestically above the cityscape.
