Room service got my order wrong 2 twice, but third time lucky and food was good. Couch in lounge needs a good clean / fumigation, but bathroom and bedroom very clean and staff super friendly. Good breakfast variety and service.

Some smaller improvements to the old furniture , equipment and doing a touch-up of the rooms and then it can be recommended without any limitations as a good value for money upper class establishment in a good location

Besides the bad treatment by staff on the day, the establishment is well positioned and have a potential to distinguish itself as one of the best. It is close to amenities like Canal Walk mall and V&A.

Colosseum Luxury Hotel was not up to standard as I would have expected. The room was full of dust and there was no Iron or Ironing board in the room. I requested an Iron and Iron Board. I was sent a broken Iron and Ironing Board.

I would highly recommend a stay here. I was on a return trip. The accommodation is very comfortable, clean, spacious and well serviced. I only ate breakfast at the hotel and the meal was of high quality and had a wide selection of food. The hotel is in a convenient location. The service was excellent.
