    Mokolodi Backpackers

    This great place, around 14km south of the city centre, is the only accommodation with a real backpacker vibe around Gaborone. It has everything from comfortable rondavels (round huts with conical huts) and attractive chalets to good campsites (you can use your own tent or rent one) and four-bed dorms.

    Metcourt Inn

    Located within the Grand Palm Resort complex, this affordable business hotel has classy if smallish rooms with a hint of Afro-chic in the decor. If this is your first stop in Africa, you’ll wonder what all the fuss is about, but if you’ve been out in the bush, it’s heaven on a midrange budget.

    Capital Guesthouse

    One of a number of newer, more personal guesthouses and B&Bs opening up around Gabs, the Capital is quietly elegant and reasonably central. It's on a quiet street and already has something of a following among business people, expats and travellers.

    Walmont Ambassador at the Grand Palm

    Located 4km northwest of the city centre, this resolutely modern and polished hotel is situated in a Las Vegas–inspired minicity complete with restaurants, bars, a casino, cinema and spa. You’ll pay to stay, but it’s worth it for the pampering.

    Kgale View Guest House

    This locally recommended guesthouse has friendly service, attractively decorated if simple rooms and a generally welcoming atmosphere. It’s the sort of place that books up fast with return customers, so call ahead. The lodge is around 9km south of the city centre along the Lobatse Rd, just across the intersection from the Kgale Hill Shopping Mall.

    Indaba Lodge

    A new hotel southeast of the centre, the 84-room Indaba is aimed mainly at a business clientele, but the overall package is appealing, with moderately stylish rooms and professional staff. It's not really close to anything but, then again, neither is anywhere in Gabs.

    Brackendene Lodge

    The Brackendene is one of the better-value hotels in town and the closest midrange option to the Mall. Rooms are simple but large and kitted out with TVs and air-con. There’s a reasonably reliable wi-fi signal that may or may not extend into the rooms.

    Linville

    Extremely well-priced rooms north of the city centre are what Linville's all about. It markets itself as a boutique B&B and while that's slightly overstating things, the whole place is stylish, thoughtfully presented and friendly.

    Cresta President Hotel

    The first luxury hotel in the city overlooks the Mall in the heart of the city. It’s modern and service is helpful, and while there are no surprises, that’s a pleasant enough surprise in itself.
