Top tips for finding Durban hotel deals

  • If you’re looking for a cheap hotel in Durban, you should consider visiting during the low season. You'll find cheaper hotels in Durban in May and February.
  • Hotel room prices vary depending on many factors but you’ll most likely find the best hotel deals in Durban if you stay on a Monday. The opposite is true for, Friday, which is usually the most expensive day.
  • Book at least 14 days before your stay begins to get the best price for your Durban hotel.
  • The cheapest 3-star hotel room in Durban found on KAYAK in the last 2 weeks was $16, while the most expensive was $70.
  • How long should you stay? KAYAK users usually book their hotel in Durban for 4 days.
  • The nearest airport to Durban city is the King Shaka International Airport, 22 miles to the north of the centre. If you're interested in a hotel close to the airport, but not in the city, we recommend the De Charmoy Estate in Verulam, as it's only 3 miles from the airport. Similarly, the Sibaya Lodge is only 7 miles away.
  • If you plan on getting into Durban city late at night, it’s probably best to stay at a hotel with a 24-hour reception desk, such as the Glenmore Guest House or the Buckleigh Guest House.
  • Bringing your pet with you on your trip to Durban? The Avillahouse Guesthouse and the Virginia Forest Lodge both accept animals. It’s a good idea to make your request in advance as there may be an extra fee.
  • Avoid relying on taxis and public transport to get to your hotel from the airport and book a place that offers easy transfers. RJ’s Guesthouse and The Concierge both provide airport shuttle transport for a surcharge.
  • If you need to do some work during your stay in Durban, you may want to look into accommodation that offers a business centre and meeting facilities. The Concierge and Endless Horizons Boutique Hotel both offer such services.
