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.

1. No bar, restaurant, vending machines, no minibar. So buy food or starve. No coffee or tea service. No food or drinks. EXCEPT breakfast. Which is nice. Coffee was spectacular. In room hot water pot with coffee, tea and little UHT milk.

2. Convenient to a shopping mall that has fast food chain restaurants, grocery store and a LOT of sports stores, several hair salons and stores that are ok. You won't find nifty gift items here nor nice things. You will find things that are staples.

3. Wifi: nightmare. Only works at night. After 9AM, starts going on the blink. Patience.

4. Staff was very nice to me. I checked in early, adjusted my room change (my room wasn't ready) so let me stayed in a similar value room early. But staff changes from weekend to week day. Week day staff, not so nice. Don't expect them to say hello or good by.

5. No concierge service.

6. Room clean, sheets clean, quiet even though I was on the first floor.

Room Tip: get the room with the Canal view. High floors they claim are for smokers but have the best views.

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.

My family and I stayed at this hotel for 8 nights. Travelling with two small kids we were given a smoking room. After complaining we were told on numerous occassions that the hotel was fully booked but we were promised to be moved to another room as soon as there was a vacancy available. That never materialsied and we were given no feedback whatsoever. What baffles me is that when we made the booking we were not informed that the room was a smoking room. To think that we specified on the booking form that were travelling with very small kids and yet we were allocated a smoking room!
Although the rooms were servives every day, stuff like cupboard doors, door handles, the bar fridge, picture frames needed some scrubbing and thorough cleaning - they were filthy dirty.
At one point we asked for fresh towels and had to wait for over 30 mins for them to be delivered to our room because the laundry truck had not arrived!
The breakfast menu was super boring - with the same "not so fresh looking" buffet every morning.When I asked for cappuccino I was informed that they were unable to make it as they didn not have coffee bean (why have the cappuccino machine in the first place)!
The only thing that compensated for the not so pleasant stay was the fact that the hotel is so close to the mall.
When I checked out a gave the same written feedback to the manager and I have not heard anything from anyone from the hotel - which makes me wonder why they bother to ask for feedabck if they are not going to do anything 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 is no room service??!!!!!!

We had to request a local delivery menu. Gave us a year out of date one.
There was only one spoon and one fork?!! in the kitchen.

This was the worst place I have stayed in in South Africa.

Me and my wife we stayed for 11 days and it was wonderful.

We appreciate the care and attention of the staff, the hotel offers quality services from the service, the food, transportation, telecommunications services.

Thanks for everything
