I stayed in this City Lodge on two occasions during May. I have stayed on business many times before. It is a beautiful City Lodge conveniently located a stride away from Gateway Mall which is full of eateries, movie houses etc. So once parked in the secure basement parking, you really dont need your car unless you want to explore further afield. Their rooms are always clean, well serviced and of a high standard. also you always have a bath and a separate shower in the bathrooms, which I really appreciate. Their breakfasts are very good. Being on business and tired at the end of the day, I made use of their bar area for light supper meals. The barman was a delight and a great ambassador for the hotel. He made me feel so at home, I ate there more often than was planned, during the two separate visits in May. Their bar light meals are good, well presented and reasonably priced and all you need after a good breakfast and often a business lunch in between.

Once you find it, you are already at Gateway Mall. So you will not struggle with driving around. park once and out of the reception door youre at the mall...Cool

Breakfast is delicious, staff is very friendly and very helpful.

Room Tip: Unfortunately there is no sea here, but full wifi is on ground floor

I spent a couple of night on this hotel and i had the chance to go in to the gym also.
I really enjoy staing here, the staff is very friendly and helpful, the breakfast is huge and the staff ready to serve and they wear a nice uniform ( it is nice to see it) , the Hotel is in a wonderful position because there are Restaurant and shopping Mall all around.
It is a very safe place to walk outside even if you're alone.
Big bedroom and bathroom.
Great place

The hotel is perfectly placed across Gateway mall which puts it in the vicinity of many good restaurants, gym, shopping experiences and the cinemas. The hotel is clean and modern with good front desk service and secure parking underground at no extra charge. Breakfast is a buffet style setup at a charge of R135pp which is a bit on the steep side.
