Friendly staff, good location. The breakfast buffet is clearly catered for Asian (Chinese) tourists. Room size is ok but not that clean. I found a cockroach in the bathroom. I reported it and they offered to change rooms but I declined and told them to clean better instead. However when I came back in the evening - the room had... More

Great multimedia hub for connecting all your devices, plugs etc. Friendly staff and a super location! The breakfast menu is not as meaty as I would like but nonetheless great buffet on offer. Access is easy, the rooms are on the small side so not the kind of place to relax and enjoy some company.

If you are desperate..... yes. If you have a choice, definitely no! Dinner was awful and so was breakfast. Nope never again. Sure the location is great and extremely central. The hotel parking is safe but the bays are smaller than small ...... me a bad driver perhaps? No face cloth, no plug for the hand wash basin, curtains off... More

Hotel is in a brilliant city centre location. The staff were extremely helpful and efficient.. The rooms were clean and modern. Rooftop pool looked very enticing if only it had been summer time but the pool area and bar were lovely

My wife and I stayed at the Strand Tower with my siblings and their spouse's for six nights. For the most part the service was excellent. The doorman, front desk staff, waiters and waitresses in the hotel restaurant were very friendly. We did have an incident with one of our servers but the hotel management provided our four rooms with... More

The hotel is in the very heart of the city, next to Long Street, the only street that is alive at night, and only 15 min away on foot from the Waterfront. The breakfast at the hotel was good and the reception staff and the bellboys were very helpful all the times.

Stayed at Strand Towers, cape town during holidays in May 2014. The Hotel is centrally located and that is the only good thing. The rooms were very small to even keep your luggage. Also the room had ill fitted and odd size table which occupied too much space. We checked a few rooms and the story was same. The rooms... More

Dear "Gautam D " Thank you for taking the time to provide us with feedback of your recent stay. It is unfortunate that you found the rooms to small for your needs.
