Top tips for finding the perfect Cape Town hotel

Many hotels in Cape Town are located in the city centre, called the "City Bowl". The Taj Cape Town is an affordable luxury hotel in the area. Visitors to the Taj Cape Town can enjoy a health spa, an indoor pool and two restaurants on site. Another luxury hotel in the area is Sunsquare Cape Town City Bowl, which has a pool and fitness centre. Both hotels are less than a kilometre from attractions such as Greenmarket Square and the Bo Kaap Museum.
Those looking to spend some time sunbathing or playing water sports should head to the four beaches in Clifton, an affluent neighbourhood on Cape Town's northwest coast. One of these famous beaches boasts Blue Flag status and all of the beaches are covered in pristine white sand. Many hotels can be found in neighbouring Camps Bay, about a kilometre away. Hotels include The Bay Hotel, a boutique hotel where guests can enjoy sporting grounds and a spa.
The Green Point area, located north of the centre and Signal Hill, is a trendy and modern neighbourhood. Green Point's main street, Somerset Road, is dotted with restaurants, bars, shops and nightclubs. A good hotel choice in the neighbourhood is Sugar Hotel, which offers a classy and romantic vibe. Only a couple of hundred metres away is Pigalle Restaurant, a stylish location that offers live music and a cigar lounge.
For those travellers looking for sports events, the Cape Town Stadium is located in Green Point, near the northern coast of Cape Town. This stadium has hosted major world sports events like the Football World Cup, for instance. The luxury Radisson Blu Hotel Waterfront is located right on the coast within easy walking distance of the stadium.
If you'd like to stay near Cape Town International Airport, there are a couple of great options available. The higher end option is Hotel Verde, which offers plenty of amenities, a 4-star rating, and the title of "Africa's greenest hotel". On the budget-priced end, you can stay at the 2-star Road Lodge Cape Town International Airport. In addition, many hotels closer to the city centre offer transport to the airport which is about 20 kilometres away.
A popular neighbourhood to visit in Cape Town is Bo-Kaap, which is located on the slope of Signal Hill.
