I stayed here on business in July 2014. Really liked the place, it is ideally suited and equipped for business people that don't like the traditional hotels where the staff keep on bugging you. What I liked about the hotel: * Location. Ideally located within the Century City complex, a short walk to the restaurants @ Canal Walk * Nice... More

The hotel was taken over by the SINGER group in August 2014. This means Prokard discounts and rewards no longer apply. They have kept the same amazing staff and the rooms are also unchanged. Will be interesting to see what, if any, changes the new owners will make.

This is really a very nice bed & breakfast experience. You get bed and a full breakfast. There is gym though, you do have to ask each time for someone to unlock it for you. EXPECT a bed and breakfast experience and you will be ok. If you think this is a 4 Star as advertised you will be bummed.... More

I didn't really like my experience at century city mostly for family reasons. What deceived me also was the lack of breakfast varieties in the restaurant. There were always the same stuffs to eat, no lunch nor dinner. However I enjoyed the rest of the accommodation and cleanliness of the hotel.

I have stayed there before and written a favourable review. Last time they could not figure out the discount for my Protea Gold Card which I had applied on the web site booking, forced me to pay again and then it took a while for them to return the funds, though, in all honesty they were not difficult about it,...

We fortunately only stayed one night. We were upgraded to a suite which looked very nice. Spacious. The tv s are ancient. We could not get the local channels. After 5 calls to reception we were told it was too late for a technician. There was no soap, the two small towels were hard and threadbare. No body lotion. There... More

I stayed here five nights on business. There was a hiccup with my reservation on the first night and the hotel management relocated me to a nearby five star property. Once I had checked into the Island Club, I found a large comfortable room equipped with a sink, microwave and small fridge. The room is open plan (with a curtain)... More

Our spacious rooms do offer comfort after shopping up a storm in one of South Africa's largest shopping centres. Next time you are down, we could arrange to rent you a paddle, and you... More
