Visited the hotel as a convenient stop for Indaba. Hotel is modern, clean and well appointed. Location however does not lend itself to late night excursions. Breakfast was only meal available in-house - more than adequate.

After trying hotels on the perimeter of Cape Town we tried the Holiday Inn Express which could not be more centrally placed with easy access to all points of the compass and walking distance to the Victoria and Alfred docks. The rooms were clean a little small as we had two large suitcases but adequate for our needs. The central...

Hotel is in a very central location so it is a good base to explore the city. You will not hear cars while staying there as the hotel is located on a pedestrian only street. There is often a few beggers in front of the hotel, but it seems that this is rather frequent in this city. Taxis and rental...

We stayed in here for a week. Hotel is in great location however it can be quite noisy during the night and early mornings. Windows could definitely do with an upgrade to double glazing. Close proximity to V&A Waterfront and other facilities means it is a great base for visiting Cape Town. Staff were all very welcoming and pleasant and...
