Whether you’re on the hunt for the cheapest hotel deals or have lots of cash to splash, there’s a range of accommodation in every South African city to suit your budget. Luckily for UK travellers the exchange rate is still favourable, so even if you’re on a budget, you still might be able to pick up a cheap deal for a luxury hotel as long as you go off-season.
Cape Town is one of South Africa’s three capital cities and has a huge range of accommodation options, from the super-swanky to the wallet-friendly. If you’re keen to be by the beach then the best places to look are Seapoint, Camps Bay or Bantry Bay.
If shopping is on your mind, consider one of the hotels near Cape Town’s enormous shopping mall, the V&A Waterfront: you can opt for exclusive five-star luxury or reasonably-priced three and four-star hotels.
For the cheapest options, turn to busy, nightlife-heavy Long Street where you’ll find plenty of backpacker-friendly hostels just moments from the bars and clubs of Cape Town’s coolest street.
Prices in South Africa skyrocket during busy holiday seasons – and hotel rooms really will sell out – so if you’re visiting during a peak time, book your accommodation well in advance.
