The best budget hotels in Cape Town

Despite its popularity Cape Town remains a good-value destination, with the generally weak currency enabling visitors with pounds to eat and drink like kings. Depending on the time of year, this value can grow exponentially – travellers visiting between May and September pay up to a third less for accommodation than the summer rate, and enjoy crisp days, the annual whale migration, flowering proteas and aloes, misty mountains and cosy fire-warmed wine-tasting rooms, along with bargain rates. Here’s our pick of the best budget hotels in Cape Town.
