This is a lovely hotel that is located on the waterfront and within walking distance to all the great restaurants and shopping. Not interested in walking, they have a shuttle that runs every hour. The staff have all been friendly and accommodating.

This hotel can be highly recommended. Very personal, not too many rooms, staff will know you after 2 days. Great waterfront location with wonderful views and 8 mins walking distance to V&A waterfront shopping. Only let-down (and that makes me question the 5* rating) is the rather poorly run tobago restaurant and the condition of the room (cracked and loose paint, mould in the shower etc) - simply the details you expect to be right in a 5* hotel.

This is a lovely hotel, the location right on the water is great and the bar and restaurant setting is second to none. I could spend days in that bar area just relaxing! All the staff I encountered were super friendly and efficient (a big thanks to all the staff!). We utilised the shuttle bus to the V&A waterfront many times. If you can afford it then book a sea view room - we were in a standard room but it was still lovely. I would stay here again. My one gripe is that the wifi was very hit and miss.

If you are looking for unadulterated luxury, amazing service, wonderful cuisine, and a stellar location in Cape Town, look no further than the Radisson Blu. I am generally a big fan of the Radisson Blu chain because of the high standards as well as the environmental consciousness of the company. The Waterfront,lCape Town though is the best I've experienced. The hotel is located in a small next to the new stadium (an amazing piece of modern architecture with table mountain in the background.), the spacious city park around the stadium, the V&A Waterfront (a 5-minute walk), and of course the ocean. I particularly enjoyed the long infinity pool right up against the ocean, great for laps and heated to boot! Plan for part of your day every day to sit by the ocean on the hotel's beachfront (excellent beach-chairs and umbrellas with great service, food, and drinks. No sand though, you're there for the stunning views of the harbor, the boats passing by, and even (I kid you not) dolphins frolicking. The rooms are modern and the beds just eat you they are so comfortable. You will not want to wake up. One negative: instant coffee is an abomination, there should be drip coffee makers in the rooms, not just electric water kettles, though the little packets of real milk were a nice touch. Highly recommend.

Room tip: Ocean view, but you pay for it.

Choosing the Radisson Blu as our hotel in Cape Town was one of the best decisions we made on our last trip. The personnel was super helpful, accomodating and made our anniversary trip very memorable! Thank you for the nice welcome champagne and romantic setting in the room! Location is perfect, with convenient parking. Also the views are great!
