Hotels in Cape Town
It is never cheap to travel and while many people are looking for accommodation that is affordable most travelers have specific preferences when it comes to accommodation.
Finding a hotel in Cape Town is easy as there are many hotels available in all the holiday and business areas of Cape Town. Some people prefer large hotel groups that they are familiar with while others are more concerned about the price and area they want to stay in.
If your preference is hotel groups you will find that the Holiday Inn, Southern Sun, Protea and City Lodge groups all have hotels in Cape Town. Formula One is a budget hotel group and they have three different hotels in the Cape Town area. The Formula One hotels are, however, not in the city itself, but the others all have hotels in the city or very close to the city.
The Southern Sun hotels are mostly at the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront of which the One & Only Cape Town is the newest addition. The Protea group has a hotel in Sea Point and the Holiday Inn is at Green Market Square right in the heart of the city.
There are many other hotels available as well, of which many are at the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront. The City Lodge and Breakwater Lodge are the most affordable in the area, but if you are looking for a luxury Cape Town hotel you will have a variety of choices here. The Victoria & Alfred Waterfront is very close to the city and the ideal place to stay if you do not want to be in the city itself. The Cape Grace and Victoria & Alfred hotels are two of the very popular and luxurious hotel at the waterfront. While all the hotels have their own restaurants there are many other dining opportunities within walking distance from all the hotels.
Sea Point is a mere five minutes drive from the city bowl and hosts a variety of hotels with facilities catering for business travelers and holidaymakers. Sea Point is a trendy area and most hotels are very close to the beach area. The Protea Hotel Sea Point and the Cape Town Ritz are two of the larger hotels in the area.
For the ultimate in luxury the Twelve Apostles Hotel on the way to Hout Bay or the Mount Nelson in the heart of the city are two of the best choices. Although they are both very luxurious there are many differences between the two. One of the largest differences is the areas. If you want to be part of Cape Town's vibrant energy the Mount Nelson is ideally situated. It has an old world charm with every luxury you can dream of, but is within seconds of the bustling hub of the city. The Twelve Apostles, on the other hand, is about fifteen minutes away from the city and a bit away from everything. It is the ideal place to relax without being to far from all the activities.
These are a few of the numerous hotels Cape Town has on offer to ensure you have excellent accommodation available during your stay in the city.
