Our family had a family outing to Cape Town, for a short break, We stayed at the Colosseum Luxury Hotel for one night. Overall I was quite impressed, the prices were low and luxury is what you got.
The rooms were in suite form, with a small "lounge area" leading in to the bedroom. Our room had 2 televisions, a mini kitchen, a shower, and 2 landlines. They offer 24h room service that was quite convenient. The menu on the other hand was very limited and thus they had not much to offer. On arrival we checked in and a very friendly porter, Benjamin, accompanied us to our rooms.
Our parents room smelled like someone just had a very nice smoke inside of the room. Housekeeping assured us that this was a non-smoking room and then ventilated the room.
Our room's view overlooked a parking area, that was not very nice. The air-conditioning in the room was also a bit of a failure
The turnover service was just something that they did to get it over and done with,no sign of effort was put in to it and you would expect that from a 4-star hotel.
The next morning we had breakfast at the restaurant in the hotel. The buffet was really disappointing, with the food full of oil. The bacon (if I can call it that) was terrible and so the sausage.
When we checked out, my dad wanted to pay the bills for the room service. We were then informed that the printers are broken. So they can't print an invoice. After which my dad said he will not be paying if he can't get an invoice. They were unable to help and the front desk manager stood there not knowing what was going on.
So overall we had a quite good experience at this hotel, despite the negative. It is worth the money.
