We thoroughly enjoy staying at the Colosseum Hotel. The staff are friendly and helpful - going out of their way to make our stay more comfortable.

I checked yesterday at this Hotel and was shocked by its luxury, the rooms are among the best Hotel rooms I have been to Africa, given a thousand visits I will still come here, a very nice place either for business or pleasure plus the Restaurant Voucher I got really came in handy.

This hotel is ideally located for any business person wanting to do business in the Canal Walk precinct. It is not ideal for tourists keen on being close to all of Cape Town's attractions including the V&A Waterfront. It is however a friendly hotel with caring reception staff. The room we had was rather strange with the toilet and shower... More

We found overall the hotel certainly fell in "luxury" category. The staff were friendly and most accommodating. We loved the room - a little lounge area, spacious rooms, interesting interior design and a little balcony.
