We stay here for 3 nights and it is a good convenient place while visiting attractions in the town. Good quality bed and decent breakfast. We had wifi access too. people were courtious and helpful. You may trace a slight smell when you enter; then again so are at many other locations at the summer time.

Stayed in this hotel for six nights, the room was small but adequate for what we needed it for. We had a corner room. The staff could not be more helpful and pleasant always smiling. The food was really good, we had breakfast every day and lunch one of the days. Would recommend and would return. Very central.

I stayed at the hotel over the New Year’s week and was quite disappointed with the quality of this 4 star establishment. When you enter the reception area you are greeted with an awful smell that follows you throughout the hotel-including the staircases and dining area. I did complain about the stench and was informed that they were aware however,...

The hotel is centrally located ; a short drive from the V&A waterfront. The service levels at the front desk, concierge, housekeeping were all excellent and prompt. There are few chain restaurants across the street - Debonair's pizza, Steers and a shopping center 1 block away. The side streets have small local businesses. The buffet breakfast was sumptuous.

Strand Tower hotel In December the rate is over R2000 per night. My stay was atrocious to say the least. Rooms not cleaned, or not cleaned properly. Cockroaches in the bath. The only thing good about the hotel is its central location. The guys at the door are helpful with finding reliable taxis... But it's below standard.

I wouldn't advice any one to go to this hotel for holiday if you looking somewhere to relax , it's too much expensive for what the room looks . I rather stay at some guest house at beach road . Or any other cheap hotel beside this one , first time and last time .

I stayed at the Strand Towers while on a quick business trip to Cape Town earlier this month. The hotel offers secure underground parking and a convenient location in central Cape Town and not to far from the V&A waterfront and the CTICC. The decor is modern with a distinctive quirky approach, as suggested by the large Paul du Toit...

We would highly recommend this hotel. It's clean and the staff are just wonderful. We had a room on the 14th floor with an amazing view of the mountains. The location is also central - walking distances to many of the tourist sites and more importantly to great restaurants and pubs.
