I hosted a two day meeting in the Hotel's Board Room. It was a critical meeting as it kicked off a new initiative.

Trip advisor made the choice easy. I stayed at the Colosseum on business for 7 days-the hotel is lovely and near a mall. The staff was very warm and welcoming even at our late night arrival. Rooms are equipped with a small fridge and microwave as well as a kettle. The layout allowed for lots of sunlight. A mall with... More

As usual the place was overall great!. Rooms are well maintained, other than the bath tap in room 429 being loose. Dinner last night was fantastic, seafood platter for two for only R129 and I still got a voucher for R50 off. Some room for improvement: running out of Jamersons and coffee service at breakfast lacking.

We stayed at this conveniently located hotel on two separate occasions. Situated in Century City, this hotel is next to the very large Canal Walk mall.

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
