Nice short stay at this hotel. . Prices are generally high in Durban but, this came at reasonable price. Breakfast only continental and no restaurant. Conveniently close to ICC where I conducted my business. TV is a very small old one. ... not that it was much in use though. Enjoyable stay for me.

Excellent place to stay if you are on a tight budget or just need a place to sleep then leave early. Rooms are small but have all the basics like tv, air conditioning and a shower. Excellent hotel for the price you pay.

I have stayed two nights here on a business trip. I am happy I saved my company at between R 600 and R 1 600 per night, while still receiving very good service in outstanding, clean facilities. I am not an easy person and I must say I do not have anything negative to say about this hotel and its... More

From the moment you walk in the lobby, the awful stench of cigarette smoke ASSAULTS you. I had hoped it would be better at the "non-smoking" side of the hotel (the hotel seems to be divided into two halves), but the room I was in was the worst-smelling hotel room I've ever had to stay in. It was a combination... More

This is a budget hotel, so if you set your standards appropriately, you'll find it all right. Without a car, you'll need to get taxis everywhere (R50 to the beach). The room was fine. The hotel needs more people on reception as the staff was quite overwhelmed at times.

The hotel is good value for money! Rooms are clean, the Receptionists are friendly but they should do better in knowing their city so that they can properly advise visitors! Had a wonderful stay......Will cime again! KFC Malawi

This is the budget lodge and is part of the City Lodge Group. The rooms are around $50 per night. Clean and functional, a little noisy, but not unbearable, it is after all on a busy main road. Breakfasts are nothing fancy, if you want fresh fruit, toast, preserves, cereal, and scrambled eggs with sausage thats what is on offer.... More

The room facilities are average, but don't bother asking reception for anything! On enquiry about what we could do during the day I asked about the botanical gardens and was told there were none, however the Durban Botanical Gardens are 3.5km down the road. If you ever want to get anywhere, it would probably be easier and quicker to walk.... More

I have stayed here often. Seems the last time they paid any attention to the maintenance was just before my first visit, oh, eight years ago. No longer cheap, clean and convenient - now it's just cheap. Unless, of course, you ask the hotel to do your laundry. That's ridiculously expensive. Plus: I gave them four items, and they lost...
