We stayed here for 2 nights. Even though it's a Holiday Inn Express but the service is great. The staff is very helpful and polite and friendly. It's centrally located and a walking distant to where we can have a good view of Table Mountain. The only thing that bed is very small, even though we got a double room,... More

Affordable price considering it is centrally located. Breakfast is not the best but the staff are super friendly. Rooms are spacious and clean. We did try other locations that bit cheaper but it's worth to pay that bit extra for the level of comfort here.

Only a short 5 minute safe walk to the essential 'Castle of Good Hope' historic site & Long Street for 'Mama Africa' Live Music restaurant / bar and craft 'Beer House'.

You know what you're getting with a Holiday Inn and this one doesn't disappoint. If I'm honest, it was a little more tired than others I've been however and this reflects my score. The staff were very friendly but the breakfast was a little chaotic considering it was not full. Pretty quiet at night though and the room was clean.

Stayed for 12 nights on vacation and this hotel was perfect for a home-base in Cape Town. Very friendly and helpful staff, they even helped arrange some tours, and even mailed my postacards for me! - central location perfect for walking to most major sites in the CBD, including the V&A Waterfront - about a 20 minute brisk easy walk)...

Great service, friendly staff. Breakfast is exactly the same everyday, some change would be good. The lower floor rooms are noisy as the city wakes at 6 and sleeps at 11. Amazing location, right in the heart of the city centre, so offices and local tourist destinations are literally in the same block. Comfortable rooms with all expected amenities for... More

The hotel was nice, clean, but shockingly average considering the price. The breakfast was great and the staff very nice - but no wifi, dated decor in the lobby and located on a quite street (albeit close to things)
