Fleurdal suburb - Appears to be old. Close to new shopping centre and close to Casino. A bit removed from (>10 km) from University and central town. Close to N1.

Hip&Happening - Westdene suburb, Bloemfontein, is an emerging business centre, complete with great restaurants and coffee shops on every block. Safe, attractive, and architecturally beautiful this is an appealing spot to choose when staying in Bloemfontein. A walk around the suburb before a leisurely dinner is a great way to end off a long day!

The wow factor - Firstly let me say that I have stayed in a number of dorms in my life, and yes this was just that, a dormitory. On my trip from Cape Town to Durban I decided to overnight at Ribblesdale Guest Farm, What a great decision on my part, I was well received into a very nice and clean place with excellent and comfortable bunk beds, bedding the whole complex was neat. I was alone in the place that could easily house quite a few people. If ever you need a CHEAP place to sleep over or spend a few days I would highly recommend that you book in at Ribblesdale Guest Farm. There are good kitchen facilities and the showers and other ablution facilities are very clean and a pleasure to use. Just one last thing if you coming from Cape Town’s side don’t follow the GPS, don’t take the first turnoff as indicated, you will end up on a 1 km gravel road, take the second turn off from the N1 at the garage and double back.

Willows, Bloemfontein - Willows is a fairly quiet and safe area, good proximity to the city centre for malls and restaurants. Certainly not a picturesque suburb and caution should be exercised as in most inner city South African suburbs, but I have stayed in and visited much worse.
Universitas - I enjoy Universitas, it's close to everything, very quiet and has lots of trees and birdlife. I always enjoy staying in this area and can recommend it to others that need a sleep over. There are some overnight places that are not of standard but I always look at what other guests wrote on the accommodation review.
Excellent!! - Ferreira is near town, near the Windmill Casino, close to the N1 for a 1 night stay. Wonderful farm atmosphere!
Andre Visser South Africa
Bainsvlei Review as a Destination - Bainsvlei according to my observation is a quiet yet friendly place. It is a crime free area which is also homely. However i would recommend that enough effort should be invested to upgrade the area to match the standard in town.
DESMOND MOLATLHEGI MFULOANE South Africa
passing through - Universitas is a lovely area - just a pity our accommmodation was not - but overall a good place to overnight is you have good accommodation - signage good - easy to find nice restaurants etc and nice quiet neighbourhood.
Excellent location - the best in Bloemfontein! It is of high to excellent quality, offers superb outdoor facilities, with a quiet farm-type atmosphere.
At the same time it is close to the city of Bloemfontein.
Wilhelm Kruger South Africa
Not recomendable - Seems unsafe, not easy to find as a result of new and/or broken street names, not a nice area.
Beautiful suburb! - We loved the suburb with its many trees and stylish houses. The Loch Logan Waterfront was within easy access from there for restaurants and shopping.

Ernst & Eliabeth Breet from Potchefstroom - Langenhoven Park is close to the N1 and vital sites in the city of Bloemfontein, but offers a quiet and rural destination to comfortably overnight.

Elize Van Der Merwe South Africa
Ferreia is on top! - FERREIRA area are smallholdings situated on the south outskirts of BLOEMFONTEIN. Close to the N1 between JHB/CAPE TOWN/PE and East London/Aliwal North.
Few kilometres from all major city attractions- Bloemfonteins major yearly MACUFE festival a mere 13 kilometres away. (10-15minutes drive)
FERREIRA with its countrylike, rustic farm atmosphere where the traveler and tourist could find peace of mind in a quiet and safe area with recommendable guesthouses set amongst trees and tranquil beautiful gardens.
Several sight seeings- The Womens memorial & War Museum only 7,5km with the BFN showgrounds nearby.
bainsvlei plots - Bainsvlei is an area of plots. Really not a destination
nice and quiet at night. would not recommend it. would rather stay in town
Marisa Ellis South Africa

Carolise Jacobs South Africa
Remarkable Rayton - To whom it may concern, from a business point of view, we have been complete been amazed by the hospitality and super friendlyness that our technical teams have had the pleasure of experiencing whilst in Rayton. Our company specializes in the testing and inspection of pressure vessels, and have been in and out of Bloemfontein a lot over the past four months.
We made the brilliant choice to use the accomodation of Barristers Inn, and all i can say is ; we were blown away. Their facilites, out of this world service, rates and accomodation is wow ! i wish the owners all the best, and i will recommend all business men and women, as well as private people to book themselves in there. It is absolutely worth it !
well done barristers !

Fichardt Park - the ideal resting place - Fichardt Park, situated in the southern suburbs of Bloemfontein, is ideal for a restful evening after travelling from whereever in the country. t is some 10 kilometers from the two Universities and you will not be disturbed in your sleep by sounds from nearby "student houses". It is witin walking distance from the Rosepark Hospital, which is situated within a kilometer from the Southers Shopping Centre. Indeed a place to rest from your travelling fatique!
Dr PF de Wet South Africa
Langenhoven Park is the perfect get-away - Langenhoven Park is the perfect get-away from busy city life. Close enough to the city center to fulfill all shopping and entertainment needs yet located away from the every day city noise. The tranquil and serene part of town that leaves you with that relaxed holiday feeling.
Bianca Malyon South Africa
Great Place! - Attended an interview for a professional job position and although I did not get the position, my memories of Bloemfontein were exhilarating due to the welcoming and homely environment of their accommodation! Keep it up!
Ajibola Adegboye South Africa
The Student Suburb - Universitas used to be one of the upper class areas in Bloemfontein about 15 years ago, but has since become a suburb where mostly the students live. With the University, two major high schools and a hospital all in the same suburb, it makes for a very busy and noisy place. Crime has also increased in this suburb which is a huge shame, but unfortunately the truth. It used to be and still is one of the most central suburbs to live in, but unfortunately not the most sort after one anymore. Sorry for being so direct.
Jenny Reynolds South Africa
Dan Pienaar - Great suburb surrounding not one but two shopping centres. But, a lesser known fact is that being adjacent to the Tempe military base in Bloemfontein, it was used as a training ground for Union Defence Force (now-SANDF) troops during WWII!
Obviously prior to being developed with sufficently wide open spaces for live-firing exercises remote from the surrounding suburbs of Westdene, Waverley and Bayswater!
Ideal for Business - Ideally situated for business stay, friendly and cozy.
Yolandi van der Vyver South Africa
My Brandwag experience - I travel annually to Bloemfontein for the National tennis tournament. Almost every year I try a different area. Last year I found the perfect area and that is Brandwag. It is central and has easy access to the shopping malls which are within walking distance. It also has easy access to all the other facilities. The area is close but very quiet and tranquil as well. In fact I found a lovely Guest house called Boa Vida which I will use every time I go back.
Paresh Joshi South Africa
Universitas - Ideal stopover for the traveller, situated close to the N1.
Marthinus de Waal South Africa
Langenhovenpark - Langenhovenpark, dit is die plek wat in hierdie jaar vir my so baie beteken het, dit het vir my eerste jaar studente dogter 'n veilige hawe geword, weg van haar ouerhuis, dit het vir ons 'n veilige hawe geword, as ons Bloemfontein moes besoek, wat meer vra iemand wat uit die Kalahari kom, en dieselfe rustigheid kan ervaar, dankie Langenhovenpark vir jou vriendelike arms wat my dogter veilig omvou en haar ouers altyd laat welkom voel
Jacqueline Smit South Africa
Universitas- central point - My daughter is currently studying in Bloemfontein, so when i take her back to Varsity, we always have a car load to take back. Girls always 10 x times more baggage than boys....
So we are always looking for a palce to stay for a weekend close and near to the University. Universitas is always the place we tend to choose as it is very central and doesn't matter which bed & breakfast or overnight place you choose, then Univeristas is close from all angles.
Good place to stay and take a breather before the next load .....
Zoe Scholtz - East London
langenhoven park - nice place to stay and it is neat and tidy.
Carel van der Mescht South Africa
The suburb of choice! - Whether one is from the Cape, Gauteng, Lesotho or around the Free State, Brandwag is the place to be due to its central location, proximity to Bloemfontein’s major shopping malls, hotels, hospitals and the University! It offers a wide variety of services, options and activities, which are mostly within walking distance.
This is a very quiet and peaceful place with a mix of both the sometimes much needed ‘hype’ while at the same time offering just the required levels of tranquility for one to relax and unwind.
Hilton - Hilton is probably one of the oldest of Bloemfontein's suburbs, and originally was the suburb of choice for more affluent. Many old Victorian & Tudor style mansions graced the main street, mostly all were owned by former Ostrich Feather kings of the day. Hilton is now a mixture of old and young , rich and poor, and has many light industries.
Situated only 2km from Bloemfontein Central City, It is convenient for business people.
