Don Thrill Hotel in Uganda, Steigenberger Resort Achti, Egypt and Movenpick Hotel Sfax in Tunisia has been listed among the 5-Star Hotels in Africa that cost less than $100 per night which could explored by international guests.
According to africa.businessinsider.com, there’s nothing quite like spending the night at a five-star hotel — especially when travelling internationally.
The accommodation is luxurious, the sheets are a little softer, the decor is grander, and the service is more refined. Unfortunately, high-end accommodations don’t come cheap, and most five-star hotels charge hundreds or thousands of dollars for a single night.
However, Top Dollar has put together a map of the most affordable 5-star hotel in almost every country using data from Hotels.com based on a one-night stay for two.
To compile the list of affordable yet refined properties and where they are located in Africa, the team at Top Dollar used Hotels.com to search for one-night stays at five-star hotels in July 2021.
“Hotels.com proprietary ratings are determined using international industry standards for hotels, bed & breakfasts and other types of accommodations,” said Shannon Lovich, Head of PR and Social, North America at Hotels.com. “Our teams review a property’s photos and the facilities, services and amenities available at the property—this information is then used to calculate a rating level. The Hotels.com proprietary rating is based on amenities provided in the standard double room type or equivalent.”
