the setting of this hotel on the waterfront is fantastic with wonderful views across the bay. you can watch spectacular sunrises at breakfast and stunning sunsets from the rooms. although its a little away from the V&A waterfront there is a free shuttle service on the hour throughout the day until 11 pm. the economy rooms were great and the business class rooms must be fantastic. breakfast was very good with omelettes and waffles made to order and the staff were very pleasant and helpful. a great place to stay in Cape Town

I have stayed at the Radisson Blu a few times for business - this time my husband came with me. The service. as always, was excellent - the closeness to the Waterfront and Cape Town really helps. Previously I have been in a business suite but they were all taken so the receptionist found us a room with a sea view.
In the evening you can sit and watch the sun set on the patio -it is a very popular place to sit. The same in the morning for breakfast - which is excellent.
This is a really excellent hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the sea

Celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary at the Radison, proved to be a wonderful experience. We were spoilt rotten by all the staff, who went out of their way to wish us and make us feel like celebs for a weekend. Thanks

We spent the first 4 nights of our Honeymoon here in June and we couldn't have picked a nicer spot to start for our once in a life time trip. On arrival we had been given a standard room with unfortunately a view of a building site. On our request and on finding out it was our honeymoon they gave us a beautiful room on the top floor with excellent views. We acknowledge we were lucky as it was a quieter time of year and they could this We ate their every day as the food was excellent and service was exceptional. Eating outside while looking out over the bay was just superb. The concierges were an amazing help to us as they basically helped organize our stay in Cape Town and the rest of SA. We would definitely stay here again if we ever get a chance to revisit this wonderful country

Upgraded modern rooms make the hotel very comfortable to stay. Some of the other facilities are still under renovations, but it manages to be relatively minor inconvenience. Make sure you have a meal or a drink on the deck, if weather permits defiantly take a dip in the pool and spend time enjoying the sea view
