We recently stayed here for 2 nights, comfy bed and nice spacious room.

Good points - executive lounge where you can enjoy drinks, snacks in a quiet lounge area, room, pianist during breakfast & staff.
Bad points - breakfast variety after 9.30am is limited, some of the metal spoons are extremely hot and I almost burnt myself on one.

Overall great stay, I would recommend having breakfast early!

Room Tip: Go for the executive rooms so you can enjoy the exclusive lounge access

We stayed here on the first leg of our honeymoon and found it to be excellent. Staff were faultless. Facilities were superb. Breakfast was great. Location was good - a short taxi ride from the Waterfront where the main attractions are, particularly in the evening, however the value this hotel offers over the hotels on the waterfront is worth it. I'd definitely go back.

I stumbled upon Strand Tower Hotel quite by accident while trying to stay at other Cape Town Hotels. It turned out to be the best decision I made. Staff was quick, efficient, pleasant. We had a bit of a technical flight problem due to which we arrived a day & half late at the hotel & since we pre-paid our stay, we requested if the night we missed could be replaced with an extra night at the hotel or be refunded- This could most rightly not be done - but they handled our request so well & were not dismissal of us.
Yes the rooms are a bit small but very functional. Very Comfortable King size bed, Tea/ Coffee Facilities, Has a Bath tub! Not to forget 100MB free Wifi!
We had access to the Executive lounge - which had a mini Business Centre with computer & Printer set up, a lovely Library and the best Part - Freshly made Snacks & Alcoholic Drinks from 5-6pm for free. Tea/ Coffee was avl. all day & night.
Breakfast - lots of room, very fresh breakfast, loved the piano being played.
1 recommendation - Could improve on the coffee in the Bkfst area - was very light & had only one type of coffee being dispensed.
Location - Super Excellent - On Strand street from where U can connect to the N2 that takes you to the Garden Route, Simon's town, Cape of Good Hope & every other place you want to see. Cab from Hotel costs 60-80 ZAR to Table Mountain & 50 ZAR to V&A.
Car rental companies, restaurants, Long Street, Bo Kaap are all 2 mins walk away.
They have a tour assistance desk right next to the reception - which can make bookings for wine tours, shark dives, Table mountain, Robben island!
Even though this hotel caters to tour groups - the staff manages this part very well. As its a big hotel - there's plenty of room & it did not get in the way of anything.
I simply loved this hotel & will def. be back & 100% recommended to all types of travelers.

Room Tip: The higher Facing rooms are good.... give a great Bird's eye view of Cape town

The organisation I work for recently hosted a two-day meeting at The Strand Towers. The staff went above and beyond the call of duty to accommodate our (many) last minute requests, and provided an absolutely impeccable standard of care and service to us and our delegates. Our every request was met with a smile and an immediate jump to action, no matter how out of the blue, or unplanned.
I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending The Strand Towers for conferences and business meetings in Cape Town. The staff are friendly, helpful and attentive; the location is central, convenient and easy to find; and the general standard of care provided to guests and delegates was truly impressive. Thank you so much!
