    Typically we would say "the city" not "this city" for this case.
    When you say "this city" it seems like there are other cities and you are singling out this one.

    When you use "around" you shouldn't use "at."
    So it should be My father came home at nine o'clock or My father came home around nine o'clock.
    I think it's the same rule in Japanese. You don't say 9時頃に right?

    In British English for one "at about/at around" is completely normal and correct. You can say "for about", "in about", "with about"... why not "at about"?

    To add, "at" is the preposition indicating point in time, and "about" is the adverb indicating how specific it is. You couldn't say with clarity, "I'll be there about 4 hours" as this would confuse the meanings of "in about 4 hours" and "for about 4 hours". Obviously "for" and "in" are the prepositions you need to choose between there. Similarly, "about" is not replacing "by" in "by 4 o'clock", for example, it's an addition to approximate the time and "by" and "at" are the prepositions. You need one or another to indicate whether you are saying "by about 4 o'clock" or "at about 4 o'clock", which have different meanings.

    Especially in conversation, some people drop "at" as it seems "at" and "about" are replacing each other but actually they're not.

    Thanks for the help, mdchachi and Michael2.
    That seems to be another difference between American and British English.

    Not really, quite a lot of English people would drop "at" too. Grammatically though, it should be used in that sentence.
