So we decided to change up our preference for self catering apartments in Cape Town this visit. A family member suggested staying close to Canal Walk Mall allowing us ease of access to the mall and Downtown Cape Town. Our party included two adults and two children and we decided on the Colisseum's two bedroom self catering apartments. A few... More

I recently stayed at the Colosseum Luxury Hotel for a week on a business trip and found the hospitality out of this world. The staff was very professional and always willing to help. I'd definitely recommend this hotel to any traveler seeking a hotel within 5 min walk from Canal Walk Shopping Centre.

Very nice room, with a reasonable view. Comfortable, and very neatly kept. Breakfast was good, with eggs cooked to order and not in the buffet. I found the complex lighting system hard to pick up - they are dimmer switches but do not look like it. Good location, relatively easy for getting to the office, and very easy to get... More

Enjoyed our stay at this hotel on the first night of our honeymoon. Room was spacious and lavishly made up. This hotel will be perfect for the business traveller. The only criticism is the lack of sharpness of the staff in general. My wife was told that they don't replace your cutlery during breakfast servings, which we found amusing.

Hotel was great location not to Canal Walk. We had an executive room which was very generous size though quite funky in decor. Didn't use the bathtub that was actually in the bedroom, but more than happy with everything else.

Return stay at the Colosseum. It is clean & comfortable, the staff are professional. The junior suites have great layout with bath alongside the bed and closed off shower & toilet. The Colosseum lacks the minimum amenities of hotels of its ranks - sauna, steam room, pool & fitness room. It is still great for short business trips.

Good afternoon Thank you very much for the review. We are glad you had a positive experience with us! The Colosseum has positioned itself to be a strong 4* hotel, that offers a number 5* grading requirements rather than being a mediocre 5* hotel, so we are elated you enjoyed the room layout, and we will be sure to give...

We had a great time at this Hotel. It is very close to an awesome mall. We had dinner at the restaurant and the food was great.

I just returned from a 12 night business trip in Cape Town. I usually stay at the Crystal Towers next door but thought for a change I would try out the Colosseum. The star rating is very similar but that is just about where any similarity ends. My overall impression was that whilst the staff were very pleasant and polite... More

The staff were incredibly helpful, there was nothing to difficult for them including lending me a computer mouse from the main desk when mine broke and I hadn't replaced it. The facilities are clean and of the highest quality.
