I came, I saw, I snapped a picture!!!

Living the good life at Strand Tower Hotel


This past weekend I was invited to stay over at Strand Tower Hotel, situated in the heart of Cape Town’s city centre where I was able to enjoy the spectacular view overlooking the city and picturesque Table Mountain.


Setting foot into the hotel’s lobby, I immediately felt welcome. Greeted with warm hellos and smiles really made me feel at home. You know that moment where you stand in the middle of a stunning setting turning in a circle while taking in your surroundings before proceeding to what you’re supposed to do? Well that happened to me when I walked in. The first thing I noticed was…


I’ve always liked these chairs but this one seemed way more prettier than the ones I’ve spotted and now I’m convinced I want one.

I was shown to the executive lounge where I was offered drinks and the staff really went out their way to make my mom and I feel extra welcome. After being briefed on all my “perks” of my stay, I was shown to my Deluxe room which was situated on the 16th floor. My room was beyond AMAZING! Bathrobes spread out on the king size bed, double windows, free wireless and dstv was just a drop in the ocean which made my stay even more pleasurable


What I loved most about staying over at Strand Tower Hotel and Conference Centre is that its so close to everything. Within walking distance from a lot of well-known Cape Town hotspots and so close to the V&A Waterfront. After settling into our room I went shopping at the V&A and when I returned I got offered to have my bags carried to my room. {Treated like royalty hey?!}


During my stay I felt like time was going way too fast especially when I really started enjoying myself. I went into the bathroom and I couldn’t decide whether to bath or shower so I went with the “greener” option and jumped in the shower{The Leisure Hotels group are firm believers in green living so I thought that would be the sensible option«– they score brownie points for that!}. While in the shower I was quite spoilt for choice having body washes, shampoo + conditioner and even body lotion for after my shower.


Well seeing that its winter here, it starts getting dark pretty early. Stepping out the shower, the first thing I spotted peeping through my room window was definitely the City Lights. I stood there for almost an hour, captivated by OUR city’s beauty(Cheesy but true)




I hopped into our soft, HUGE bed and after fidgeting with my ipad for a while I started reading my “LA Candy – Lauren Conrad” book that I had bought that day. Listening to the streets buzzing even though it was way after 1.


Checkout was at 11 and I honestly stayed there till the last minute because I didn’t want to leave. Back in the lobby Alfred (The Doorman) chatted to us a little while «– Super friendly and funny dude. So to ANY ANY ANYBODY visiting Cape Town or even lives here, if ever you need affordable yet top class accommodation or even just a mini getaway, Strand Tower Hotel and Conference is highly recommended. I WILL BE BACK!


*A huge thanks to Nadia Majiet and the team over at Strand Tower Hotel for inviting me over, I had a blast!*
