Where to stay in Pretoria

Pretoria offers both posh hotels, most of which are located in the Central Business District, as well as many budget bed and breakfasts and guesthouses scattered all over the suburbs. Five- and four-star chain hotels can be found in the Sunnyside neighborhood in the city center--keep in mind, though, that when the nation's Parliament is in session, mid-range and luxury rooms can be hard to come by.
