We really enjoyed our stay at Strand Tower Hotel. It is very central and close to the Water Front. All the staff is friendly and helpful. A good clear swimming pool, on the same floor as the bar and restaurant. We were originally only planning on staying at Strand Central Hotel, for 3 nights. The other hotel (Dolphin Beach Hotel...

I had an excellent stay at the Strand Tower Hotel. Everything worked and worked well. The restaurant on the second floor offers a huge variety of dishes and almost all of it is cooked freshly by the friendly chefs behind the counter. My room was clean and comfortable. I received a warm welcoming when checking in and Kimon went out... More

The Strand Tower Hotel encompasses everything that others have written about it: handy location, friendly staff, clean, etc. It even offers unexpected amenities like an ozone fresh water tank, on the second floor across from the restaurant, from which one can refill their water bottle. However service is variable. I spent three days without internet access before a receptionist on... More

Strand Tower Hotel is great with regards to its location. It's walking distance from the Green Square Market, Pan African Market, the City Sight Seeing offices and from the meeting point of the Cape Towns Free Walking Tours. Staff: Everyone from the hotel porters, receptionists, waiters, cleaners and chefs are friendly and welcoming. Don't be afraid to strike a conversation... More

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.

I have stayed in this Hotel for 1 night in March 2015. I was pleasantly surprised. The staff at the Hotel was very friendly from my check in on the Sunday Afternoon, until my departure the following day. The room was very clean and even caters for your own media devices to be used with the television. The room also... More

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
