Inexpensive accommodation in Cape Town is like hen’s teeth.
But you can still find it in Cape Town.
Truth is, it’s more about knowing where to look, and we’re rather good at that at SA-Venues.com – it’s what we do.
So, if you’re determined to have a holiday in Cape Town, but want an inexpensive place to stay – look no further.
Sure, the accommodation in Clifton is awesome (but, my goodness, the cost!). If you stay just around the corner in Sea Point or Green Point, you’ll hardly notice the difference…
And places like trendy Harfield Village or Vredehoek give you excellent alternatives for a shadow of the cost (we’ve even found somewhere in Kommetjie – but you’ll have to hurry, as there are only a couple of nights still available! – scroll to the end of the blog)
We’ve scoured our directory to find you inexpensive accommodation, Cape Town, South Africa for under R1000/night (some of it, admittedly, only just under the 1K mark, but we think you’ll agree, they’re worth it!).
Note: the list below of inexpensive accommodation in Cape Town works especially well for couples who are flexible about dates (just before Christmas or early/middle January are still up for grabs).
There’s little you won’t like about this self-catering apartment literally a stone’s throw from the Sea Point promenade. There are great views of Lion’s Head and Table Mountain, a trendily furnished space, and huge windows to let in the light.
You’ll love: the views and art work.
Cute as pie, with dashes of colour and unusual combinations of dècor, this charming guest house lies bang on the Atlantic Seaboard in the city bowl, only minutes away from Clifton, Camps Bay and the V&A.
You’ll love: the garden and the wooden floors.
This is what is commonly termed as ‘a find’ – the furnishings are simple (classic black and white with a hint of Hollywood) but trendy, the location perfect, the linen plush, and the result, relaxing and comfortable.
You’ll love: the access to restaurants and local eateries.
This is a weeny loft apartment. But oh, does it score when it comes to location – in the heart of De Waterkant. It’s classic city living with a modern kitchen, just about every appliance you can think of, and a communal swimming pool.
You’ll love: the tiny Juliet balcony from which you can gaze over the waterfront.
If you’re quick, you can still nab early January 2018!
It’s a bit like living inside an art exhibition, your stay at Daddy Long Legs – the 13 air-conditioned rooms (Long Street can get noisy) are each uniquely decorated by either an artist, poet, photographer, designer or musician. And if that doesn’t excite you, then…
you’ll love the communal bar.
This is such a clever idea, we just had to add it to the list. This pad just off Kloof Street is an accommodation share. You book one of the rooms, but get to share the kitchen, bathroom and open plan living area. There’s even a small private courtyard area.
You’ll love: how close it is to the Labia Independent Movie House.
Note: Only nights left are in mid-January 2018.
We had to include this unassuming option on the slopes of Table Mountain. It’s a bit like staying with Aunty Madge – don’t go expecting glamour – but it’s quirky, comfortable and the gardens are beautiful.
You’ll love: the views! And the access to restaurants, mountain trails and public transport.
The combination of arty and comfortable is difficult to resist, particularly if a fully stocked ceramic studio makes you go weak at the knees.
You’re close to cafes and restaurants on the high street, and public transport for quick access into the city bowl up on Main Road.
Simple, modern and pretty, but salt of the earth accommodation, a short walk from the beach.
You’ll love: the open plan kitchen and the balcony. Why wouldn’t you?
