The hotel is centrally situated but what was annoying was the old TV that was faulty and that I needed to call someone to tune it in every time I wanted to watch something. We had dinner one night and the meat was tough.

Rooms are clean and functional. Beds are extremely comfy. Food is good. The staff are the best - very warm and friendly. Pool is lovely - looks over the streets and location is in the middle of cape town centre.

Strand Towers have the friendliest Staff. All Smiles, totally professional and willing to do the extra. Their buffet breakfast was whole-sum and had a bigger variety than the average hotel food. The Hotel decor in the eating / bar areas could be more unified, and modern, but it is clean and comfortable. The rooms are very neat and tidy. Nice... More

Comfortable and amenable hotel. Excellent breakfast - huge choice of food and even a pianist to serenade you. We paid a bit extra for a "superior" room - meant we had 24 hour access to the large executive lounge with coffee/tea and food all included. Computers too. Really pleasant perk. Great view of the Lion's Head mountain from our room.... More

we stayed with a group of friends at strand tower hotel. Great staff and ambiance. Wonderful breakfast and the rooms were super clean and spacious. The staff makes you feel like a guest in a small B&B while the hotel has more than 200 rooms. Great value for money. Might be the best deal in Cape Town
