As a business traveller, we understand that with a busy mind focused on work, the last thing you want to be worrying about is how protected you are. At Century City, you and your belongings are always safe. Our area has comparatively low crime rates, due to a zero-tolerance policy towards crime and regular security patrols. You are in safe hands! Colosseum also takes measures to ensure the safety of our guests. This includes electronic safes in rooms, 24-hour reception, 24-hour security, secure underground parking, and locks on doors.

With multiple access points to Century City’s Wi-Fi, an Internet connection is always within arm’s reach. However, we recommend staying at Colosseum if you require a strong, stable connection. Our complimentary, high-speed Internet will ensure that you can get your day’s work done in no time.

When travelling, you need shops and restaurants nearby. Whether this be because you forgot a fancy shirt or need to grab a bite to eat between meetings. Canal Walk Shopping Centre is right around the corner from Colosseum. We also have a Woolworths, Clicks, and Vida e Caffé on the ground floor of the hotel. If you are looking for a warm plate of food, Mozambik Restaurant provides breakfast, lunch, and dinner, either next to the reception area or as room service.

Relaxing You-Time

Unwinding after a long day’s work is a necessity as a business traveller and at Century City, this is provided with ease. Watch a movie or indulge in retail therapy at Canal Walk. Walking the Century City Arts Trail winds along the peaceful canals and is a good way to combine relaxation, exercise, and culture. Intaka Island, Century City’s bird sanctuary, is only a 15-minute walk away. Here, they work to conserve the fauna and flora in the area and promote sustainability within the area and beyond. For those who like to clear their head through exercise, head over to Island Club where you have free entry to their gym, indoor pool, outdoor pool, and gardens. Relaxing has never been this accessible!

Colosseum Hotel is the ideal accommodation for and is popular amongst business travellers for a multitude of reasons. Our comfortable and spacious rooms offer an excellent, and quiet, night’s rest. With extra-length king-size beds, your sleep will be undisturbed. The room comes with a work desk and chair as well as a semi self-catering kitchenette. Your room has both a bath and shower, meaning you can either have a speedy rinse or a long soak in a bubble bath.

In terms of location, you won’t find any better! As mentioned, conference facilities and a mall are within walking distance, but we are also a short 15-minute drive from Cape Town CBD. With direct access to the N1, you can access the local attractions with ease or jump onto the N2 for Cape Town International Airport. We offer a shuttle service for the 19-kilometre journey to and from the airport, meaning that you don’t have to worry about reaching the hotel or your next flight on time.

Our home pleasures are what makes us a dream hotel for business travellers. We have a laundry and dry-cleaning service, as well as daily housekeeping in the rooms. Our reception is open 24-hours, which ensures a smooth check-in and check-out, as well as quick resolutions to any problems and complaints.
