Colosseum Luxury Hotel
Ranked #1 of 4 Hotels in Century City
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 August 2014

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 lots of stores and eateries is a brief (5 min) walk away plus a Woolworth's is right outside to pick up snacks/drinks. The hotel has free wifi and there is a restaurant on site as well as a bar. We went to the restaurant a couple nights and ordered room service too.

If there was a question, the staff was very helpful and made sure that we had an enjoyable stay. Great hotel and when I visit again, this is the hotel of choice.

Good afternoon,

Many thanks for writing such a fantastic review.

We agree - The layout of the rooms and the hotel allows for plenty of natural light, and our guests find the ease of access to Canal Walk extremely convenient - I hope you managed to get some retail therapy in

We will definitely commend our staff for being helpful, friendly and knowledgeable - our Chef will be notified that you enjoyed the meals as well.

We look forward to welcoming you back upon our next visit to Cape Town.

Keep well and travel safe,

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.
The Colosseum Luxury hotel rooms have a very chic appearance and are quite large compared to many hotels. Separate areas, include a living room/lounge area with a large flat screen TV, modern lighting, a kitchen area complete with a microwave, mini fridge, cutlery, sink, etc. The bedroom area has a standalone bathtub, a very comfortable bed, desk area, and separate shower, wash basin, another flat screen TV and toilet area. All fixtures including the lighting are very modern and stylish. Large windows in both the lounge area and bedroom allow for a lot of natural lighting.
Breakfast was included in our rate. The buffet style breakfast was very well stocked with everything from cereals to hot dishes, fruit, egg station and more.
Free underground parking is also included, and the Canal Walk Mall is only a few steps away. We ordered room service at times and it was delicious.
I would definitely recommended this hotel if you plan on staying in the Century City area.

Room Tip: If possible, get a room facing Table Mountain.. Definitely, a room with a view!

Good afternoon,

Many thanks for your thorough review of our hotel.

We are elated that you enjoyed your stay and found our rooms to your satisfaction. Our rooms are well stocked with all the amenities one could need while keeping a chic modern feel.

The fact that Canal Walk is so close allows our guests to get some retail therapy while not on the move in the city.

I hope you indulged in our breakfast and enjoyed your visit to Cape Town.

We couldn't agree with you more regarding your 'Room Tip' - our mountain views are absolutely spectacular.

Once again, thank you for the recommendation and the review.

Keep well and travel safe.

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. They even went to the shopping centre nearby to source a cable for us so we could play our music in the room. The rooms are fantastic and spacious and luxurious and we're always greeted with something special when we arrive eg champagne and flowers and massage oil with little cakes on my last birthday. What a treat! I recommend this hotel to anybody. It is also situated very centrally so everything is close by. Jacques and Loren Ellis

Room Tip: I think all the rooms are excellent but if there are more than one couple, I suggest the penthouse

Colosseum hotel was my next stop from Fancourt and my friend and I were immediately in love with the place. We walked to Canal walk shopping center and didn't have to worry about transportation. The only issue I had was with my debit card which was sorted out for me. The staff were also friendly and breakfast was always on point. We had originally booked to stay for 3 nights to continue to Joburg but who would want to leave such an amazing place? We cancelled the trip to joburg and extended our stay. We had an amazing view of Table Mountain from our room which was on the 4th Floor.

Hi Antiwaa

We are elated that you fell in love with the Colosseum Luxury Hotel - It is definitely an affair to remember. (Being compared to one of the worlds most renown and prestigious resorts is a compliment in itself - thank you).

We are incredibly lucky with our positioning (2 mins walk from Canal Walk, 10 minute drive to Blouberg Beach, 12 minutes to Cape Town CBD). I assume you enjoyed some excellent retail therapy at Canal Walk.

Our views from our rooms are great, whether you have views of Table Mountain or of the majestic Durbanville Hills.

It is a true testament to our staff and management that you decided to extend your stay at our "amazing place"- we loved having you.

On a side note - We are glad our staff could assist with your faulty debit card.

We look forward to welcoming you back upon your next visit to Cape Town.

Keep well, and travel safe.

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. Words cannot explain the finese of this Hotel, you need to visit to experience

Hi Calvin,

Many thanks for taking the time to write such a spectacular review.

The hotel will always have it's finese, but what we feel sets us apart is the environment we try create. We feel one of the main differentiating factors is that our staff always go the extra mile to make our guests stay an experience to remember.

We try offer something unique to our guests, whether it be restaurant vouchers, discounted Thai Massages, or a simple complimentary cup of hot chocolate at the reception during the colder winter months.

Calvin it will always be a pleasure to welcome you back, and we look forward to seeing you soon.

Keep well, and travel safe.
