“Always a pleasure”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

We have quite often made use of the 'bit to stay' part of the City Lodge web-sites, amongst which this hotel is one of the best ones to book a weekend special deal on. The rooms are neat, functional, with big beds and big bathrooms. Although it is near a busy highway, it is quite and have black-out curtains. It is very close (just across the road) from Monte Casino for great food and entertainment, as well as large shopping centers. It has a pool and outdoor terrace, as well as a fairly well-quipped gym for free use of guests. There is an in-house bar, restaurant and coffee shop, with reasonable prices. As a treat, there are always little muffins in brown paper bags for early mornings (free) and arrival drinks throughout the day. Most importantly, the staff in all departments are well trained, helpful and seem to enjoy working here. All in all, very good value for money. Other restaurants and a day-spa are located on the same premises but are not part of the Hotel.

Room Tip: The rooms higher up have a better view of the surrounding area, but all the rooms are nice and quiet...

We stayed here for 1 night as part of a evening out at monte casino. The staff were really friendly and the appearance of the hotel was excellent. The rooms were fairly good, would have liked a mini fridge though. Had a shower and a bath. We really enjoyed our stay. Will recommend for business travel and 1 night stay for travelers.

I spend there 3 nights. Rooms are OK with basic features. TV was a bit smaller than my taste. No fridge in the room! Breakfast hours are strange, from 6:30am to 9:00am during week days, which is not according to international standards of 6:30am to 10:00am. The hotel loby gets stuffy with smell of the grill as the main breakfast/lunch buffet has an open kitchen. I had to change my shirt after breakfast because I smeled like I was doing the cooking! Hotel staff are nice. Pool area has a nice view of the surrounding mall and casino.

Room Tip: Rooms on higher floor are quiter.

My fiancé and I stayed at this hotel on a trip to Johannesburg. We needed to do most of out business in the surrounding Fourways/Sandton area so I was perfectly located being just a 2 minute walk from the famous Monte-casino. It offered a great value for money option to the nearby Pivot and Sun Square hotels which can be quite pricey.

We found the hotel to be very clean, beautifully decorated and a with a variety of dining options. What we didn't like was the young party-enthusiastic crowd that seems to frequent the hotel. They were often loud and obstructive to the other guests otherwise peaceful stay!

The room was fairly large and had all the modern amenities. Our bed was rather uncomfortable and had a hollow centre which ruined our experience.

Otherwise the hotel was a good fit for our Fourways visit.

This relatively new City Lodge is still in great shape. Unfortunately at our first check-in (we were there for two nights and then returned again for a further two nights) we were given a room with a broken electronic divider between the bathroom and bedroom however when we notified the staff they ensured us this would be repaired before anyone else stayed there.

A fitness centre is available on the first floor. The equipment is not state of the art however it is serviceable.

The location is extremely convenient with a couple of restaurants being located in the same centre and a rental car agency also nearby and of course, Monte Casino is within walking distance.

We went to see the wonderful show, Dirty Dancing, at Montecasino and needed a stayover nearby - I have used the other Montecasino hotels previously but as this was not a special treat but rather for convenience (as we had to leave on a long trip early the next day) I was looking for a more budget stay - Well I got the budget on my pocket when I found City Lodge Fourways - but nothing else was budget about our stay at all!

We were extremely surprised and pleased with the friendly welcome and even more so by the comfortable well appointed room which was literally a few metres walk to the theatre! The hotel has easy secure parking and an atmosphere of elegance and calm surrounds the visitor there. In the morning we could choose to take a courtesy muffin and coffee for the road or enjoy a sumptuous breakfast in the elegant dining room - we chose the latter as it all looked so delicious :)

What a pleasant surprise our "budget" stay turned out to be - I must share the advice I was given though: Do any booking online as the online rates are considerably more reasonable than through their reservations centre!

My only comment is that as a true blue country bumpkin, I found the late night walk back to the hotel a little unnerving - despite the receptionist's assurances there has never been any trouble - and there is no light over the gate for pedestrians - It would be fantastic if there could be a more safe, convenient passage (even underground?) for pedestrians to move to and fro between the hotel and Montecasino.

Stayed here for 1 night. Fantastic modern building with lots of glass allowing sunlight to brighten up the ground floor. Room was fantastic too with lots of space and clean.spacious bathroom. Good views of montecasino.swimming pool looked very clean but didn't use it. Upper level staff such as duty manager are very friendly.quality of coffee shop food was excellent and tasty. One complaint I do have is that the coffee shop staff and some of the reception staff need to be more friendly like the other city lodge hotels. This is the only thing preventing me from giving 5 stars.will I return? Yes I will. I think city lodge cares about its guests and would address my concerns. So well done to u city lodge fourways
