Radisson Blu Hotel Waterfront, Cape Town
Ranked #29 of 111 Hotels in Cape Town Central
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 30 November 2013

Stayed here a few nights on our recent trip. The setting of the hotel, right on the sea front, is amazing. The best thing for the hotel is the staff - everyone were so helpful, friendly and efficient -however, housekeeping could up their game and actually vacuum the room if not everyday at least when they can see it needs a vacuum! The food at the restaurant was lovely, as was the dinner service. We had breakfast here 4-5 days and the offerings were excellent and fresh each time.
The hotel is a 10-12 minute walk away from the V&A Waterfront and we walked it easy one morning but we were told its not safe to walk this at night. The hotel shuttle works like clockwork so need to pay out for taxis.
Special mention must be made of the hotel gym - it's one of the best we've seen in any hotel!

We stayed at this hotel for 8 nights & I have to say it must be the best hotel location in Cape Town ! Right by the sea front 10 minutes walk to the Waterfront shopping district . Rooms are basic but spacious and the staff very friendly. We had a small problem while we were there and Paul the Customer Relations Manager was very helpful, he dealt with us in the most professional way. We will definitively book this hotel if we go back to Cape Town.

We stayed here at end of August in-between safaris in Sabi Sands and Vic Falls/Chobe. Nice hotel in a beautiful area. Restaurant was fantastic for both breakfast buffet and dinner menu. However, as you would expect anywhere in Cape Town, be very vigilant, even inside the hotel. The heavy doors on the rooms lock automatically when they close, but the door to our room apparently stuck one time when we went to breakfast, and did not close properly. Apparently, some unscrupulous housekeepers knew about the problem with this door, and when we returned about 30 minutes later, my camera and raincoat were missing. I contacted the front desk, and security immediately sprung into action. Unfortunately, their investigation did not lead to the return of my camera, but the front office manager Elsabe was very attentive and sympathetic to our situation. Once their investigation was completed, they actually reimbursed us for the cost of the camera. So, while we had a bad experience while staying here, the hotel staff and management did the best they could to rectify the problem. Just remember to make sure your door closes all the way!

All that a top class hotel should be, beautiful comfortable rooms, good dining, very good service. Shuttle to waterfront made touring Cape Town very easy.
Only problem was that the lift had a mind of its own.
Will definitely return at the earliest possible opportunity.

We stayed at the Radisson on the Waterfront during the first part of our Honeymoon and it didn't disappoint.
The location was fantastic and the view of the water front was lovely, especially enjoyable whilst having breakfast in the morning outside. The breakfast was also really good, with loads to choose from.
Our room was really spacious and had everything we needed, we also were upgraded to a sea view which was fantastic.
The staff were also really helpful and friendly and made our stay even more enjoyable. Loads and loads to do in and around Cape Town and we are already planning our next trip.
