This hotel has a beautiful lobby and friendly and helpful staff. I have stayed here 2 times and found it to be a very nice hotel in which I could relax after work. The rooms are large and have an interesting layout with the bed and bathroom in 1 room. You can close it partially with a curtain, but you...

The Crystal Towers is a top five star hotel. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay there. Starting with the greeting from reception to the excellent restaurant, lovely rooms and exquisite service, this hotel has it all. And it's a relative bargain compared to 5* hotels near other major cities of the world. My only complaint is the Internet access is capped...

Great service. Great breakfast. Great restaurants. I did not have in room dining. Good foyer for business meetings, although a bit cramped. I would propose that you ask for a room on the southern side on level 8. Great views.

A very pleasant stay indeed. Upgraded room was perfect with great views. Close proximity to mall and gym caters very well for our need. Complimentary snacks, fruit and water was an added bonus. Magazines in room made good reading.

I was surprised by the poor reception at this hotel today. The room is also a very odd shape - more like a corridor, with only the desk chair or a plastic chair to sit on. And they really should empower their receptionist - in my case a woman called Charmel, who had to refer everything to her manager. We'll...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
African Pride Crystal Towers Hotel & Spa is where innovative, modern design meets timeless sophistication and luxury. Located in the heart of the Century City urban hub, African Pride Crystal Towers Hotel & Spa is settled beside a palm-lined canal, and boasts views that stretch out towards the majesty of Table Mountain. Situated a mere 15 minutes from the airport, city centre, V&A Waterfront and the start of the luscious Cape Winelands, Cape Town is at one’s fingertips. What we call – Cape Town’s back yard. Take advantage of our complimentary scheduled shuttles to and from the CTICC, V&A Waterfront, Table Mountain, Camps Bay and Clifton Beaches. If you want to stay close by, take a walk across our exclusive access bridge to Canal Walk Shopping Centre, with 400 stores open all day. On your return, unwind on the deck with some fresh sushi and delicious cocktails, whilst watching the sun set over the metropolis. However, if you are looking for an intimate dinner, make your way down to the Towers Restaurant for a dining experience designed to entice the senses. If relaxation is at the top of your list, then a visit to the Award Winning Life Day Spa is an absolute must. It offers a unique place of relaxation that provides sanctuary from the stress of modern life. Facilities include treatment rooms for individuals and couples, a floatation chamber, a gym, sauna and steam rooms. To end the day, return to your magenta lit room and kick back with one of our complimentary DVD’s from the comfort of your bed or lie back in peace and soak in what it feels like to Live the Crystal Life. ... more   less
