My wife and I stayed here during our recent trip to Cape Town, where we were visiting friends and family, but needed a break from the bustle. So, I booked a night in what is meant to be one of the premiere hotels in Cape Town. It left a lot to be desired. Upon opening the bathroom, the handle came... More

This hotel is one of the greatest on the Waterfront and has been one of the best Radisson properties They have ever owned. On my opinion the hotel should be IN THE TOP 10!! All my family agreed and we will be back shortly.

Well mixed cocktail, brilliant view, fabulous staff. The deck at Radisson Blu Victoria Alfred Waterfront in Cape Town is ideal for late afternoon drinks with friends and business partners alike. Sunset is spectacular and is the perfect way to end a busy day in Cape Town.

- Good location next to the water - Pool is nice, but not heated and due to the birds not really usable. - Breakfast is big, but no fresh juice etc. - Rooms are nice and clean - After all a good experience, not 5 stars but I would come back.

This is one of the best Radisson properties worldwide. We were upgraded to a business room as a gold member. The room was spacious, offered excellent views of the waterfront and included a lavish breakfast. I have stayed at multiple properties over the course of my travels and can say without hesitation that the breakfast the to die for! The... More

This was my first time in Cape Town and was recommended by a friend to stay at the Radisson Blu Waterfront and I would stay here again if I ever return. Breakfast on the terrace with the view of the water was a very relaxing way to start my day. Staff were very welcoming, polite, and attentive to my every... More

The location of this hotel is very good. You can walk to V&A (10-15min) or take the free shuttle bus from the hotel. The view is really fantastic. The hotel it self is nice, but nothing compared to some other hôtels in Capetown, especially when the price is so high. I had a room facing the back of the hotel,... More

Having a drink and looking over the ocean is always a winner with me & family. Service is friendly though sometimes a touch forgetful. The couches outside could do with a clean as bird droppings are often splattered on them. The prices are a little steep. The drinks especially. The food has always been excellent though. They changed their menu... More
