Where to Stay in Bloemfontein, South Africa: 4 Best Hotels

Bloemfontein is not a tourist town and offers little to see. We advise you to arrive in town as late as possible. If you are here it is certainly to go to Lesotho or to return to France. Return flights are often cheaper from Bloemfontein than from Maseru. You can check by comparing prices on Skyscanner. We give you below all the best hotels in Bloemfontein for a good night before or after your flight.

NB : We advise you to spend the night in a B & B / Guest House. In Bloemfontein, they are much better and cheaper than hotels!
