I really enjoyed my stay here, after initial scepticism about it being a bit too much in the city centre. Actually location is convenient to many attractions. I especially enjoyed the room which was on a corner and provided lovely views over the city to Signal Hill and harbour. The design has been well thought out for allround comfort -...

We travelled to Cape Town and found this little Gem in the City Centre; centrally located so that you are close to all the "Cape Town Must-See" spots. The hotel itself is just lovely! The staff are amazing and the food is delicious. They even have Lunch AND Dinner buffet's every night. The rooms are spacious and decorated with a...

We had a quick one night stay in a Deluxe Room, and the experience was magnificent! Having a particularly keen eye for detail, I could not fault any aspect of this hotel. Everything, from parking, check-in, cleanliness, breakfast and staff demeanor was outstanding. Candice was very thorough, professional, and extremely helpful at check in, and this culture seems to echo...

We stayed at the Strand Tower hotel last weekend. Sadly, I was very disappointed with several staff for not understanding what it means to serve the clients. The hotel itself is in need of some serious attention, from elevators to zircons and basics like bathroom leaks. Neglect seems to be the order of many items there. Sadly, all are routine...

On top of that there was no water on the room and the "king size" bed was so single beds next to each other and they kept moving apart from each other. The gym...
