Top tips for finding the perfect Cape Town hotel

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.
