Stayed here twice as part of a group tour, first for one night and then again for 2 nights a few days later. This is essentially a business hotel but we were just there to sleep after a full day's sightseeing so it was fine. Check in both times was hassle free. The rooms are clean and well furnished, comfortable... More

I cannot praise the staff more highly in their hospitality, professionalism and welcoming attitude. Having travelled from Australia with my daughter I was quite hesitant, this hotel made me feel like family and took care of any question or booking we had. I can't wait to revisit

stayed here for business.

This hotel is perfectly located in the pedestrian area of downtown cape town, only 50 m from viby Greenmarket Square. In combination with a special offer this hotel offers stunning value-for-money. Hotel seemed fully booked when I was there but service still worked perfectly ok.

We stayed at the hotel after we booked a last minute special online - and on that price I would rate it "very good" - but the going rate is much higher, so its "only average".

The Holiday Inn Express was a cheerless place. The ground floor entry is a relatively dark entry with a stair well and elevators to the 2nd floor check in. There are two "bouncers" posted at the ground floor at all times to keep out the folks who do not belong. At least there is security... The room was on the... More
