Located in the middle of Bocagrande's main boulevard, and only a couple of blocks away from the Hyatt (one of the newest and best hotels in the city), this Holiday Inn is a great, great option when you don't want to spend hundreds of dollars in lodging. Highly recommended!

I paid $7 by cab in November 2016 from Holiday Inn Express to the airport. One cab driver even quoted US$30. Lucky for us, we had an idea of the price before requesting a cab.
