“Good location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012

Hotel is well staffed and has a small bar. Breakfast was very good! On the first morning, somewhat jet lagged I did not set my clock properly and missed breakfast by about an hour, instead of simply turning me away "the buffet at this point was taken down" they offered to make me a plate and brought me breakfast. It's an easy location and has a lot near by. I did not have a car so can't comment on that. I did my touring using the "on and off bus tour" it stops near by. I'm loyal to their award program so IC Properties tend to be my first choice.

My colleges and I stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in Cape Town during the AfricaCom 2012. It is very convenient Hotel for business and pleaser, located in Central of the city, walking distains to the Convention Centre, museums, Company Gardens, restaurants, Green Market Square. Our room it was on 15th floor, nice and comfortable with beautiful view on Table Mountain. Staffs are friendly and helpful.

Excellent hotel if you looking at a brief stop over in Capetown.It is a very centrally located hotel with access to all the tourist places at this seaside town. Think of it, if you and your family is going to spend the entire day out with the seals, seagulls and penguins,you may as well spend the entire in a neat cozy hotel which is comfortable for the family. The breakfast is awesome,spread out with so many options.The African cuisine offerings are a good deal.So have your self a long fulfilling breakfast before you set out for a very hectic adventurous long long day discovering Capetown.
The staff are friendly and the area is very peaceful away from all the traffic and hubbub of the city life.All in all it was very relaxing and worth its price!

Room Tip: Ask for garden or poolside view room.We got a good corner spacious room.

My husband and I took our first trip to Cape Town for our anniversary. We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express. It is centrally located and they have a nice breakfast. The rooms are clean and well-apportioned with adequate amenities. Wifi is not as reliable as I am used to and it is über slow!
The staff were very accommodating to our needs. They helped to arrange a full day car tour to the Cape of Good Hope and were helpful with suggestions for things to do around our hotel.

As a benefit, there is the small market where you can buy great African goods--be prepared to barter for them; they expected this of us and it was loads of fun. We were able to purchase some wonderful mementos for family and ourselves.

It is good hotel just near by the Long Street. The Staff is extremely helpful and friendly. You have a right to use 30 MB Wi-fi Each day. but If you finish it somehow, you can pick another 30. (which is a plus)
Hotel rooms are well equipped and decorated.
Overall, Recommended to all travelers

Spent one night at this hotel.Staff are very friendly. Allowed us to stay longer so that we could catch the evening flight without any hazzle. If you are a shopper the flea market is at the doorstep. Thursaday's there is an open food court with variety of ethnic food which are cheap and tasty. Highly recommend this hotel

I was on my 50th bucket list vacation to Cape Town and area. I did not know what to expect and I was pleasantly surpised. It started off with a wonderful stay at the Holiday Inn Express. I found that the staff at the Holiday Inn Express very friendly and helpful. They helped organize a half day tour for me and my transportation back to the airport.

The room was spacious and had a modern feel to it. The location was close to many of Cape Town's attractions including the Green Markt, the Company Gardens, and Long Street. I love the fact that you were able to charge your meals to your room at two neighbouring restaurants. Both restaurants had great food and service. Like all Holiday Inn Express, their breakfast was good but compared to other South African hotels , it was boring.

Next time I go back to Cape Town, I definitely plan to stay their again.
