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.

My husband and I and our friends stayed for 3 nights in June before travelling to Durban. The hotel and staff were excellent, particularly Papy who always stopped for a chat with us morning and evening. The location is superb and the views from our business class room could not have been better, overlooking the harbour and Table Mountain, making... More

I had a great stay but it lacked the touch of any personal contact for me as i prefer smaller boutique hotels.All was great other than the live music they played.I would recommend this more for the corporate traveler.However the room was superb with a magnificent view.

The hotel is pretty good, clean and well located, it provides a very good sea view and great breakfast. It provides free transport to the waterfront mall. I would recommend anyone going to cape town to experience the good of this hotel.

Booked for a Business trip this week using the online booking facility, no mention that the hotel lobby and public areas are under renovation. No very transparent and will not stay at this group again if this is how they believe they can treat customers and get away with it. Rate was in the region of R 3000-00 per day... More

Loved this hotel. The position on the waterfront is lovely and there is always something to watch, from ships to whales. The bed in our room (345) was very comfortable and the sheets were lovely soft cotton. Staff were friendly and very helpful when needed. The only minor niggle was the maintenance and improvement work going on at the time... More

I stayed in one of the suites whch was spacious, modern, clean and luxurious. The view from my room was phenomenal as the hotel is well positioned. The vew is what distinguishes this hotel so hold thumbs that the weather is good so that you can enjoy breakfast on the patio outside next to the sea.

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
