Our Personal Opinion

The Crystal Towers Hotel & Spa is a great hotel for those who are young or young at heart. The hotel's unique, mystical appeal may not appeal to everyone but it is great for guests looking for something fun, funky and another world in which to escape. The service here is excellent, the amenities impeccable and the facilities fantastic. For functions and celebrations there is no other choice. The hanging pool deck is a great place to party, however it can be privately booked and thus overnight guests may find at certain time, the pool area is closed off however there are so many other ways to amuse yourself while at Century City. Being outside of Cape Town can be a bit of a problem for some people but for those who don't mind travelling the hotel does offer a complimentary shuttle.

Although I wouldn't pick Canal Walk as a destination to stay at when travelling to Cape Town, if you need to be at this area then this is the hotel to stay at.

The staff are friendly and welcoming and while the hotel clearly means business it has some quirky, fun aspects to it as well. The restaurant is wonderful and the deli has an amazing array of cakes and sweet nibbles.

The rooms are very comfortable and spacious, a great place to end a hard day of work or shopping!
