Our first stop on our trip to South Africa and Botswana, we enjoyed a pleasant stay at the Radisson Blu in Cape Town's waterfront area. The best surprise was the food at the hotel's own restaurant; my husband had one of the best steaks of his life (he claims) and I had a deliciously prepared kingclip (local fish) filet. The... More

Nice hotel, staff keen to help and whilst there is a courtesy bus to the waterfront it's a bit too far to comfortably walk particularly if it's hot or wet or windy and there is nothing to do in the vicinity without taking the journey

Stayed at the Radisson for 2 weeks on business and can highly recommend it. Great location with amazing staff. I felt very at home. The staff was so friendly and helpful and the views from the deck - beautiful! Hopefully on my next trip I end up there again!

Couldn't really find anywhere to put this review but since we ended in Cape Town..... The Hotel was great, particularly if you get a great view, ours wasn't but it didn't matter, we weren't there much. They are undertaking a huge revamp of the main concourse, so not sure what it will be like but we found it very pleasant.... More

We stayed here at the start of our trip in March 2014. The hotel is well located for the V&A waterfront. The buffet breakfast was great with lovely sea views. Our room was spacious and comfortable. I found all the staff very welcoming and helpful and would recommend this hotel if visiting Cape Town.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Uniquely located on the glittering azure waterfront of Cape Town, the hotel has the majesty of the legendary Table Mountain soaring behind it and every shopping and eatery delight beside it. It’s also a heartbeat away from Cape Town’s pulsing business centre, an easy stroll (or complimentary shuttle) to the famous Victoria & Alfred Waterfront with its myriad of world-class shops, restaurants, cinemas and colourful working harbour, or a short hop to Africa’s most beautiful beaches and the call of our lush and ancient winelands beyond. The state-of-the-art Cape Town International Convention Centre is a mere 5 minutes away.The Radisson Blu Hotel Waterfront provides the finest service, setting and comfort making your stay always one to remember and certainly one to repeat. ... more   less
