The Southern Sun Cape Sun Hotel by Tsogo Sun in Cape Town, South Africa, is a large city hotel featuring 368 hotel rooms and conferencing facilities that can accommodate over 500 guests.  The hotel has 32 floors and was completed in 1982.  This Cape Town city hotel has undergone many refurbishments and as it stands, it makes for an excellent conferencing venue due to its size.   The conference facilities of the hotel are extensive and have only one drawback, and that is that they have no natural light.

The elevators' glass walls are covered with 3700 square meters of glass weighing 68 600 kg.   At the time of its opening, this hotel in Cape Town was a modern marvel of glass and concrete.  The hotel is located on a full city block with the entrance facing Strand Street in the Cape Town city centre.  On one side, the hotel borders Burg Street and on the other side, St Georges Mall Street.  This Tsogo Sun Hotel is a block away from the Cape Town Train Station and 2 blocks from the bustling Green Market Square.

At 105 meters above sea level, this city hotel offers impressive views of Cape Town's Natural Wonder of the World: Table Mountain and Robben Island in the blue Atlantic Ocean.  For guests' convenience, the hotel offers a hotel shuttle to and from the famous Victoria & Alfred Waterfront.  The Cape Town Convention Centre (CTICC) is a mere 15 minutes' walk from this centrally located hotel in Cape Town.  The hotel is located only a short distance away from Cape Town's nightlife on Long Street.
