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 location of the hotel was fantastic. We were within walking distance to interesting food and sights. If we couldn't walk, it was easy to access transportation. We attended the Cape Town Jazz festival and walked to and from the convention center. We rented a car and had parking that was affordable and easy to access. The staff is wonderful!... More

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. It's actually very conveniently located near shops and restaurants. Staff were friendly and very helpful. The breakfast was good for a Holiday Inn Express... More

Overall, we were happy with our stay. We stayed a week in June 2016, winter in Cape Town. After the long trip from Vancouver, it was welcome to have a comfortable place to get over travel and jet-lag without worrying about to much driving and hassle.
