Great Hotel except........

Posted Mar 8, 2016 on Hotels
The Strand Tower hotel is very well maintained and has amazing staff who go out of their ways to make your stay a pleasant one. My only complaints are that the guest rooms are a lot smaller than they appear in the pictures, I had no hot water to shower with, and the wifi was awful.

Sleepless night!

Posted Jan 9, 2016 on Hotels
We had no sleep! I phoned the hotel prior to booking to find out if there were any quiet rooms available as I'm a light sleeper and I knew the location of the hotel. The woman who answered the phone said that they would be able to give me a quiet room and that they would make a plan when we came to the hotel. No mention of a night club that stayed open until 6am playing thumping music was made as they booked us into a room on the same street as the club. It was 2 January so some noise from the festivities downtown was permissible but a very loud night club with a speaker that stood outside the club as well as loud music and very strong bass that could be heard on the 11th floor is totally inexcusable. When I phoned reception at 3:45am they informed me that the club would only stop playing at 6am. This proves that the hotel knew of this loud club and withheld the information from me resulting in a sleepless night which in turn ruined all our plans for our last day of holiday in Cape Town. We decided to vacate the next day and asked for a full refund but were forced to pay for the sleepless night we had. I hope the hotel will follow through with refunding us for the night we didn't stay as per their offer.

Bad service

Posted Jan 9, 2016 on Hotels
I Wait 2 hours for a room. Booked a King size bed room and, they gave me a 2 single size bed room, it took more then a 1 hour to change to a king size bed. During my stay never refill the body wash container. Have to pay 25 rands for a tooth brash.

Séjour + conférence

Posted Oct 20, 2015 on Hotels
Séjour tres agréable. L'hôtel est un peu vieillot mais la qualité du personnel compense très largement. Les facilités offertes dans l'espace conférence sont de tres bonne qualité

Alles OK. PLV aber etwas Teuer weil in die Jahre gekommen

Posted Feb 26, 2015 on Hotels
Alles in allem war es völlig OK. Das Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis des Hotels fand ich etwas teuer da es schon etwas in die Jahre gekommen ist. Dafür ist es zentral gelegen und die Gegend ist völlig in Ordnung. Die Angestellten waren sehr hilfsbereit und zuvorkommend. 1e Gehminute von der Longstreet und 3 vom Öffentlichen Park mit tollem Kaffee im Grünen und Diversen Museen.
