The location of Century City Hotel Urban Square is absolutely ideal for guests who are attending an event or conference at the Century City Conference Centre. But thanks to the Urban Square Hotel’s central location within the vibrant Bridgeways Precinct of Century City, there are plenty of exciting leisure options within easy strolling distance, from shopping and dining to canoeing and bird-watching. And most of the top attractions in Cape Town are easy to reach from here too.
If you are travelling to Century City Hotel Urban Square in your own vehicle or a hired car, you don’t have to worry about where to park. You will find plenty of available bays in the Urban Square’s P2 basement parking. This safe underground parking area provides direct access to the Urban Square itself via a lift to the foyer of the Conference Centre or via a staircase that pops up in the Square just metres from the hotel entrance.
To reach the entrance to this parking area, follow the direction above from either the CBD or the Cape Town International Airport, but when you reach the second traffic circle, instead of turning left, take the second exit, turn left at the next traffic circle, and follow the signs to the P2 parking area.
To get to Century City Hotel Urban Square without a private motor vehicle, we would recommend travelling by Uber or metered taxis. Both services will offer reliable, safe and relatively affordable fares from the CBD, the V&A Waterfront and the Cape Town International Airport.
Once you have settled in at the Urban Square Hotel, you will find it easy to reach the many attractions of Century City. Most are easily reached on foot — especially, of course, the Century City Conference Centre, the entrance to which is literally just a few metres away.
