Hotel is clean. Staff is professional and nice. Rooms have a fair dimension and location is convenient if you have to be in the Centre of Durban, particularly with the Congress Centre. The restaurant of the hotel is good and price are adequate. Which is fortunate because there isn't that many places to eat around and in Durban all your... More

I stayed for 2 nights at city lodge an I enjoyed every minute. Free fast unlimited wifi accessible was the best thing ever. Breakfast includes full English and continental. It's close to the convention centre and durban promenade and has easy access to the main roads.

It's just a 3 star standard hotel. But very clean and near Durban city center, malls and shoppings. Better for business than vacation due its central location. I noticed that the occupation was 100% when i stayed. So better book earlier. I would stay there again.
