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.

I have been there twice now. Hotel is better than I expected when first time visited. Location is very good. Room is smallish but nice and clean. Would need more power outlets. Breakfast is ok. All in all - great place to stay in one of the greates cities in the world.

We stopped at the Holiday Inn Express in central Cape Town over the new year period 2015/16. The hotel was clean and the location was very central but best of all, the staff were fantastic. They really helped us out booking a few excursions very last minute at a very busy time for us.

The hotel is a little difficult to drive to because it is located between two very narrow, one way streets. We had trouble until a very helpful staff member hooped in the car and directed us.
