We are located a short, 15 minutes drive from Cape Town city centre. This means that you miss the noise and crowds of the city, but that you are close enough to enjoy the vibe and buzz within a moment’s notice. This is ideal for tourists who want the best of both worlds or or business travellers who prefer an easy commute to and from their meetings in the city.

Century City is placed next to the N1, the main highway that connects the entire Cape Town metropole. Whether you’re headed for the main business district in the centre of town, the beautiful West Coast or the suburban Northern suburbs, our location allows easy access. Head to Stellenbosch for a stroll through the tree-lined streets, Paarl for some wine, or drive even further through the Worcester tunnel and explore the quaint small towns in the Western Cape.

Easy access to the N2 Highway

The N2 highway is accessible less than 800m from the hotel. The N2 is the second most strategic highway in the city and takes you straight to the airport, less than 15 km away. Take the M5 and join the N2 to head to Cape Town International Airport, or discover the Southern suburbs and beyond. We recommend Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, any of the small coastal towns along the Cape Peninsula, and the Cape Point Nature Reserve. Following this highway will lead you along the Garden Route, all the way to Mpumalanga.
