“Awesome location at a great price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2014

I really enjoyed my stay, the staff were very friendly and helpful. The room had a lovely view of Table Mountain and was uniquely decorated. Would have loved to make use of the pool only if the weather was a bit warmer. The pianist at breakfast was a quirky surprise!

This hotel is well located and allows walking to several points of interest. The staff is first rate and very helpful. The rooms are a good size, but seem a bit in need of refurbishing. The carpet is an odd color, and it gave the appearance of being dirty.

I've stayed at the Strand Tower twice, and I would pick this hotel again. The people are friendly and helpful, you're in walking distance of all the shops/restaurants, and just a few minutes from the waterfront.

During my stay, I found the central aircon ineffective. Moreover the food is not great and is a tad mundane. Far better places to stay in Cape Town. However, it must be noted that the staff are friendly, especially the porters.

I had an opportunity to stay at The Strand Towers hotels in Cape Town this past weekend and what really stood out for me is the warm friendly staff all the way from the reception, concierge desk, the restaurant to the room steward. The hotel is cosy, warm and homely and ideal for both business and leisure travellers given its strategic central location. I enjoyed the mountain backdrop view from the hotel's 2nd floor lounge before proceeding for buffet dinner that offers such variety and the BEST prawns in town! I have managed to come back relaxed while on a business trip...
