Who would not want to stay in a city that is ultimately safe and known as the judicial capital of South Africa? Sounding safe already, Bloemfontein is characteristically slower in nature and does not have the hustle and bustle of the other two major cities, Johannesburg and Cape Town. It is the place to be if you enjoy slow, lazy like days, infused with activities that you enjoy doing. You will find many locals doing activities such as fishing, visiting the botanical gardens or enjoying the magnificent architecture while clubbing. So if this is your kind of vibe, how about booking one of the best places to stay in Bloemfontein as shown below?

1. Dersley Manor (from 87 USD)

Your inner royal is going to love this boutique accommodation as it has grandiose sort of nobly themed rooms with lavish drapery and upholstery decorations. The 5-star boutique rooms all have the necessary modern amenities such as a television, a small fridge, an air conditioning unit and a safe. Relax in their carefully manicured garden or dip into their outdoor swimming pool for a cool down after a day out exploring the city. If you would prefer a spa treatment in your room, that can be arranged. Before you start your day, you can have a big breakfast befitting a royal guest and in the evening, you can sample the scrumptious food served in their restaurant.
