We work near the Radisson and decided to see the newly completed refurb followed by evening drinks on the deck. The views of the water, yacht harbour, city and Table Mountain are as good as anyone could wish for. We walked out onto pier and drank in the beauty before returning to a table for a relaxing G&T. We immediately... More

Lovely hotel and staff great location for some one not wanting to be right in the central tourist area but able to walk there. Could do with more drawer space for holiday makers like me with 2 full cases and have suggested the free shuttle to waterfront is more frequent after dark as a few undesirables appear.

The conference rooms were previously quite outdated with dark wooden panelling on the walls and no natural light. The dividing walls have now been removed and replaced with concertina style walls which can be removed if required. The 2 largish rooms also now open out onto a function area facing the harbour/ocean, to become one large area accommodating a large... More

I stayed here in September which seemed to coincide with the final push to finish a serious renovation project of the lower floor of the hotel. While this does happen in many properties and is generally a sign of a good hotel, I do wish I had been told in advance as opposed to woken up to the sound of... More

We stayed in the Rsdisson Blu Cape Town in late September 14. The hotel was clean and modern, the staff friendly and reception knowledgeable. We had a room facing away from the coast which was clean and comfortable. The buffet breakfast was good with a wide range to choose from.

The hotel is well located close to the harbour - in most cases I would say this is an advantage, however, not in this case. There is a noise, like a signal, and it's piercing, that goes off approximately every 20 seconds - 24/7 . I raised this problem with management and it was eluded to that this was being... More

I have stayed at the hotel on many business trips over the years. The location is convenient with underground parking. I love that you can be in the centre of town, but still right next to the sea.
