I stayed at the Radisson for 6 nights last week and can't think of a single thing that was wrong with my stay. The customer service was the best I have experienced in any hotel in any country in the world... and I have stayed in a lot of excellent hotels. Furthermore, the restaurant was so good that I rarely... More

The Raddison Blu Cape Town is perfectly situated right along the shore near Victoria Harbor. Stunning views of the ocean and the mountains. Our family suite was more like a well appointed apartment. 2 full Baths, a full kitchen, 2 full bedrooms, with a pull out sofa in the living room. The on-site dining had several menu choices. The breakfast... More

We stayed 5 nights at this hotel and upgraded to a ocean view room at a steep cost, not sure if it was worth it but we did get breakfast which was excellent. We had to change our room after the first night because they failed to put us into one of the upgraded large business class room that we... More

We had an absolutely terrific stay at the Radisson Blu. We had booked a business class room, but as a Club Carlson Gold member we got upgraded to a 2BR suite. It was a giant apartment with a living room, kitchen and giant terrace overlooking the ocean. Truly one of the best rooms we've ever stayed in! The staff at... More

We chose a suite with an ocean view and were lucky to see dolphins passing through the bay. Immaculate room, wonderful service, great food. A big busy hotel, with a blend of... More
