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.
