We spent a very enjoyable 4 nights at the Holiday Inn Express recently and like most other reviews, you would be hard pushed to find a hotel with a better location. We arrived ona Tuesday and parked the car in the on site car park and did not use the ccar again until we were leaving because you can walk...

We wanted a hotel right in the centre of downtown Cape Town and the Holiday Inn Express was just perfect. The staff were very friendly and the buffet breakfast was excellent. The rooms were clean and of a good size for a city centre hotel. The beds were comfortable but the pillows and duvets were old and lumpy. Our first...

A pleasant walk to Cape Town's convention center the hotel is located on a pedestrian mall with car access. Very friendly & helpful staff were quick to respond to any problems.

My wife and I returned to this hotel for the 3rd year in a row and the staff made us feel like we had come home. The professionalism and warmth of the entire staff sets this hotel apart. The hotel itself is a very good mid budget hotel in an ideal location to see Cape Town. There are great restaurants...

The main advantage of this hotel​ is its location. It's central to the city and a great base from which to explore Cape Town. The staff are very friendly and accommodating. The breakfast was good (nothing too special) but ok. Lots of other options for food around the hotel also. The room was clean and comfortable. Bathroom was a good...

Great location in the middle of the city center. Staff is very helpful. Bed can be a little bigger. Breakfast is complimentary and good selection of hot food. Little dark in the night but Cape Town can be a little scary to walk around in the nights.

The staff is very nice. The hotel is situated right in the middle of town. Surrounded by restaurants and shops. Just a walk to parliament. Breakfast the best. But if you are looking for the view of the beach this hotel is not it

You will see from some of my previous reviews that I'm a fan of Holiday Inn (they're always clean, have everything you need, are well located and always offer a good breakfast) and so my first port of call when I go on a city break is to check for a Holiday Inn. This Holiday Inn was no different to...
