So. The reviews on a certain hotel booking website were great. However this is a very very average generic hotel. The room was ok, however there were quite a lot of minor issues, adding up to a pain. So, the room was very hot as it faces the sun - shouldn't have been a problem, but the air conditioning was... More

Well located modern hotel, with an impressive sea view. Nice comfortable rooms with all amenities. Restaurant can improve. Quit at dinner but specially chaotic during breakfast. Good and safe parking.

We don't normally stay in corporate hotels but stayed here for convenience - we had a very early departure the next morning. But to our surprise we really enjoyed our room here. It had a wonderful view of the ocean, was spacious, clean, and comfortable. It was also excellent value which is why I've rated it excellent. Would definitely stay... More

it was nice but i expect more from Radisson. I booked it becuase it had a gym, however I found the gym to be below par. hotel gyms are generally never brilliant but this one was particular dated and badly kept.

We spent two nights in the hotel. Arrived after a 26 hour journey at 11 am. They explained that at this time no room was available. Since this is standard hotel policy that was no problem so we asked when to return. Unser: at this time we can offer you a smoking room, otherwise check in time is 3 pm.... More

We stayed at the Radisson Blue PE for our honeymoon and are totally disappointed. The hotel infrastructure is pathetic, 2 lifts going to all 23 floors (from basement parking to the roof, including all the rooms) with the hotel often overriding the lifts so that they only stop on certain floors. We regularly waited about 20mins each time we used... More
