I can't say enough about the great experience I had at the holiday Inn Express in Cape Town City Centre. My flight arrived early and the staff was able to get me checked in early. The rooms were extremely clean and comfortable. I had a number of early morning activities that caused me to miss the complimentary breakfast, and the staff packed me a bag for the day. They were also extremely helpful in suggesting restaurants and things to do around the city. I would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Cape Town. As a heads up, the restaurants around the hotel close pretty early so be sure to plan ahead. Read less

Right in St. Georges mall (gardens and tall buildings). The area feels like Europe. Shops next door (Mr Price, Edgards, KFC, Food Lovers etc...) but everything closes by 6pm!! Hotel is nice, about 12 levels. Top floors have nice views. Room was surprisingly small, but ok for 2 persons. They have a policy of changing towels every 3 days,… Read more
Right in St. Georges mall (gardens and tall buildings). The area feels like Europe. Shops next door (Mr Price, Edgards, KFC, Food Lovers etc...) but everything closes by 6pm!! Hotel is nice, about 12 levels. Top floors have nice views. Room was surprisingly small, but ok for 2 persons. They have a policy of changing towels every 3 days, which is crazy! Walking distance to Red Bus Long street pick up point. The area gets shady at night, cannot walk alone or small group - I advise take Uber even for short distances. If you want quick food at night, there is a small shop called Gooble2Go nearby, sells delicious calamari and chips till 10pm (its a small grocery store). Breakfast is 3-star. Bar area does not have a menu, so expect shocking bills. Staff have been courteous. Read less

This is a nice and clean hotel near many good restaurants. The staff is very friendly and always happy to help.

We called the first evening because we had a non smoking room but the smell of cigarette smoke was really too much in our room. I am asthmatic and called reception. It was about 22h00 and they came and helped us to move to a room on a higher floor. This helped and had a good nights' sleep. Overall we had a good stay and will be back in the future. Read less

I stayed here for a few nights while sightseeing in Cape Town. It’s a nice hotel in a central location. There are many shops and restaurants nearby and it is easy to get around to the sights from the hotel. The rooms were small but comfortable. Breakfast was great, lots of variety. The staff at the hotel were excellent.
