At night there are a lot of beggars and homeless people swarming around and sometimes distrusting your good night rest. Also, at night, this neighbourhood might not... More

Perfectly situated right by Long street which is known for its night life. Very good breakfast every morning, friendly staff and a really great, comfortable room! Typical of a stay at Holiday inn; definitely good value for money and not expensive at all!

The staff goes out of their way to fulfill your request.. The central location of the hotel makes it perfect for you to explore Cape Town on foot. Safe Parking is provided at a fee but it is worth it as your car is parked by the valet guys and is always secure.
