In January, I stayed for the third time in the PE Radisson, time for review. According to my experience, it is a good business hotel, efficient and reasonably priced. The standard is not quite the same as I have experienced it in other hotels of the group across the world, especially in respect to speed in the bar (had to wait more 15minutes before I could pay for my coffee) and atmosphere (differences between sterile and design...).
The hotel is in a very safe area almost at the beach and a bit out of the center of town. The latter is not an issue as the center has hardly anything to offer.
Breakfast and dinner are okay, stay away from the tables near the outside area as staff (has to??) keep them open all evening which is in the windy city of SA not always a pro.
Rooms are okay and have a nice modern design, although the building quality a bit sub par, however this not a building quality review site I guess ;-)
