We stayed here for 3 days at end of March after reading all the positive reviews and must admit we agree. A good central location for the Gardens, Church, African street market, Bo Kap and the hop on hop off bus etc., Good friendly service and a much better breakfast than in Nth America. Regarding safety -probably better than most...

Stayed at a few Holiday Inns around the world, this would have to be our most positive experience. All staff are helpful and cheerful, nothing was too much to ask and all requests were completed professionally. We booked on tours, arranged a local driver and sought a lot of information from the staff and all requests were met promptly. The...

This hotel is OK. The rooms are fine though not the cleanest. The breakfast is good. The main drawback is that the area around the hotel is full of aggressive beggars and street people. It's not safe to walk even 2-3 blocks from the hotel after dark. I was followed home from a nearby bar by a street person carrying...

Overall my impression of this hotel was positive, having spent 3 nights there in March; The staff are friendly and the room was larger than many of the HI Express properties in Europe. The room was also more tastefully decorated and furnished (vs my experiences of HIX properties around the world). Critically, the room was very clean. Breakfast exceeded my...

Stayed here for three days while on a quick jaunt to South Africa. Hotel was quite good and a step above what you might expect in a Holiday Inn Express in the U.S., especially when it comes to breakfast, which included four fresh hot items (scrambled eggs, rashers, sausages, potatoes), a large selection of breads and pastries, and some nicely-constructed...

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.
