Radisson Blu Hotel Waterfront, Cape Town
Ranked #31 of 110 Hotels in Cape Town Central
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 22 January 2012

We were at the Radison for the final 3 nights of a 2 week holiday in South Africa and talk about ending with a bang! We had a business class room facing the sea and it was amazing. The lounge area was very spacious and the room well decorated. The room was also well equipped and had a lovely balcony. There was a great choice at breakfast and it was served on the terrace and it was the perfect way to start the day. I highly recommend cocktails on the terrace as the perfect way to start the evening. The staff were friendly and very accomodating. We were surprised to have been allowed to check out very late in the afternoon without having to pay an additional cost - very unusual these days. If there was anything that could improve this hotel it would be a more frequent shuttle service to the waterfront.

Room Tip: I highly recommend upgrading the business class sea facing rooms.

Room was good sized, well equiped, comfortable and clean.
Was here for a conference, and really regret not taking my wife.
The staff were exceptionally helpful, and nothing was too much trouble.
The food was excellent, and interesting.
The spa was very good.

I spend 10 nights at the hotel on December 2011 for business and below is my comment, it is very nice hotel of course and depends on your stay objective could be the best or not.

- Location: Very nice location in the water front, 10 minutes walk from the V&A mall & there is shuttle bus to there; but quit far from the city center. The bad thing is, it is not easy to find taxi. You can use the hotel car for almost the same price, thanks to the hotel.

-Hotel car: you can use it and it costs same as taxi. I had to go to the airport to pick up something and they charged me one way not two ways, much appreciated!

-Room: the room is not modern but not bad for me, I got a standard room "although I am club member!" located in the 3rd floor next to the house keeping storage which is very bad, they are very noisy day and night! after two nights I asked the reception to change the room and they did next day. The housekeeping usually make a big noise while laughing and talking in a way I didn't see before at any 5* hotel, they even block the corridor!

-Restaurant and breakfast: Very nice restaurant with open air seating directly in front of the water. The breakfast really nice! as most of Radisson hotels.

-The service in general is very good. Very recommended for holidays.

Room Tip: Avoid room 316 it is next to the storage of housekeeping and they make noise day and night.

I'd recommend this hotel to people that are looking for a resort type hotel with an outdoor pool, free shuttles to the V&A Waterfront and a pretty good gym/spa. It's also a good option for business travelers who want to stay in a resort for the weekend.

Positives were:
- Beautiful views from the restaurant & pool (I never tired of watching the dolphins in the morning while drinking coffee!)
- Pretty well equipped gym and rarely busy
- Pretty good spa, with reasonably priced yoga sessions mid week
- Hotel happy to store bags before/after check out and for you to use showers in the spa. Useful if you have an early flight arrival or late departure
- Food and drinks were reasonably priced. Pool bar and food service was good with a pretty good selection of food options
- Shuttle to V&A waterfront runs regularly

-ves:
- Rooms are not to the same standard as the hotel facilities (with the exception of the executive rooms which have been recently re-done). My room (particularly the bathroom) was jaded and in need of a refurbishment (particularly in light of the room rate)
- My air conditioning didn't seem to work in my room, which I annoyingly only realised at 10pm when I was trying to go to sleep. Bit like sleeping in a sauna unfortunately!
- For the price I was paying for my hotel room I'd have hoped breakfast would have been included. Given it was a buffet I can't imagine that the incremental cost of another guest eating would be that high and it makes things easier for the staff in the mornings...not to mention being a nice touch!

Overall a pretty good stay, and a lot cheaper than the 5* resorts in the area or 5* boutique hotels with pools. I'd stay again if I came back to the area.

Room Tip: Some rooms have sea views which are nice. Executive rooms have been refurbished more recently but ar...

Stayed here over Easter, and had a great time. The breakfast buffet deserves a special mention. The staff were always courteous, and happy to find answers if they did not know. The pool is a welcome break from the changeable weather.

Very well located hotel with stunning views and comfortable rooms. Curteous and helpful staff added to the experience and the laundry service was excellent. Having breakfast overlooking the ocean is a great way to start the day

Room Tip: If possible request a room overlooking the ocean-you will not regret it
