The Holiday Inn Express is ideally located in the centre of Cape Town and it has car parking although let the concierge park you vehicle for you. It is a short walk to Long, Bree and Kloof Streets where there are plenty of bars and restaurants. The V&A waterfront is walk-able but its so easy and cheap to catch an Uber.

The Holiday Inn Express is ideally located in the centre of Cape Town and it has car parking although let the concierge park you vehicle for you. It is a short walk to Long, Bree and Kloof Streets where there are plenty of bars and restaurants. The V&A waterfront is walk-able but its so easy and cheap to catch an Uber. I like to stay in the town centre as I can often walk to my meeting and if I traveling out of town I am going against the flow of traffic which can be busy. The only tricky issue is driving to the hotel, which once you know where it is its easy to find but my GPS got very confused on my first visit. The trip is to drive up Long Street then turn right into Longmarket, then turn right just past KFC, it looks like pedestrian walk way but just turn and the hotel is 100m+- on your left. Enjoy!!

The first time we entered the receptionist welcome us kindly. Hotel rooms are quite good according to the budget, although the shower is quite narrow. The breakfast menu has many choices and tastes pretty good. The location of the hotel is close to fast food restaurants and ATM.

Great place to stay if you are on a short break in Capetown. Easy access the the “red bus hop on hop off” and some great eating places close by. Staff are helpful and friendly and the room was comfortable and clean. There’s a small nice gym on the 15th floor with outside rooftop area to take in the atmosphere.

Arriving here by taxi, you might be put off by the chaotic market nearby, and the garbage strewn around. Don't worry! The hotel is fine, with 24/7 security. The staff is fantastic.

Arriving here by taxi, you might be put off by the chaotic market nearby, and the garbage strewn around. Don't worry! The hotel is fine, with 24/7 security. The staff is fantastic. They found a reliable taxi for us, and we used him to travel all over Cape Town. The front desk staff got us tickets for the Table Mountain Cable Car and the ferry to Robben Island. Good breakfast, and a business centre with computers and printers. Be sure to trek all the way up to the 15th floor to see the Mountain and nearby buildings. Read less
