Hotels near Soccer City

Hi,

My wife, my mom and I are coming for the finals of the 2010 World Cup and were looking for a good - but cheap plae to stay that is reasonably close to the stadium as well as the city.

I am not mentioning a rate as I do not have too much of an idea as to what usual hotel rates in Jo'Burg are.

Any help in this regard will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

There are absolutely no hotels at or walking distance to Soccer City (area known as Nasrec) the closest 2 hotels are at Southgate (which are absolutely terrible DO NOT STAY there) and still about 4 or so kilometres away.

The closest decent hotels would be at Gold Reef City. approx 8 or so minutes drive. Casino + Theme Park + Apartheid Museum.

You can stay in Rosebank, Melrose Arch, or Sandton. 20 - 40 minutes drive away. All activities other than soccer - namely restaurants and entertainment would be in these three area's

it would be budget dependent. although my feeling is that all hotels are going to be way overcharged.

try www.southersun.com for sandton hotels and www.proteahotels.com for Melrose Arch and Gold Reef City.

I am sorry to say I doubt you will find anything cheap, hotels, guesthouse, even private individuals have been waiting many years to cash in.

A decent hotel (4 star) at today's rate will set you back at around R500.00 per person per night. You can get a little cheaper perhaps if you try for City Lodge group, but as far as I know, there are none in the 'south' of Johannesburg where Soccer City is.

There are no hotels in the centre of Johannesburg or near to the stadium worth staying in, except for the hotels inside Gold Reef City as Jhb Boy said.

I think Jhb Boy is being a little negative though - I doubt that private individuals have been waiting for years to cash in, but that's my view,
