Radisson Blu Hotel Waterfront, Cape Town
Ranked #30 of 112 Hotels in Cape Town Central
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 23 May 2016

The location of the hotel is great - close to the Waterfront, City Bowl and Atlantic Seaboard. Check-in was quick and easy. My room was on the second floor with views of the ocean. Breakfast was fantastic, a wide selection of food and fantastic views of the ocean from the deck. The doormen were friendly and efficient. The rooms were large and well laid out. Wifi worked well. Check out was quick as well. Excellent choice for a business hotel.

This hotel overlooks the ocean and is 10 minutes walk from the Waterfront. Book a business class room overlooking the ocean. The views are spectacular, rooms are large and very well maintained. Breakfast is excellent with a good choice. Staff are very friendly and helpful. The shuttle to the Waterfront runs every hour. We had a great stay and would certainly return.

Room Tip: Sea view rooms are excellent

This is my first review in a 1 month trip through South Africa, Kenya & Tanzania so I don't have much to measure by except hotels elsewhere in the world.
Premises are clean & tidy offering standard fare for this standard of hotel.
Food good without being restaurant quality, limited activities outside of the room.
A pool which is used by the seagulls more than guests with consequential droppings around the pool concourse.
Make sure you don't accept a room at the front of the hotel as this is where the reception is so you get pick up from tours, deliveries and the like starting from a little earlier than 5 am then, if a conference is at the hotel as with us, people arriving home from a night out at all hours which really interrupts your sleep.
What really impressed me though were the staff who are extremely welcoming with a smile on their faces at all times.
I'll see how the rest of our accommodations measure against this stay.

Room Tip: Don't stay adjacent to the entry / reception as it is way too noisy early morning and late at ni...

We stayed at this hotel for 6 nights in May. Having visited the hotel 2 years ago, we knew to book a room with ocean view, as not all rooms are facing the ocean (remainder face car park and restricted view of Table Mountain). Rooms are good size, housekeeping is quiet and efficient, and reception staff are friendly and keen to help. Hotel runs a shuttle service to V&A Waterfront (on the hour, every hour until 11pm), but don't be late as they leave on the dot! Restaurant has a large patio area right by the water's edge - fabulous setting (if the weather is warm enough) for breakfast, lunch or dinner (open all day). Open buffet for lunch at weekends, when restaurant is very popular with local residents; also, live music in bar and patio area at weekends.

Room Tip: Higher floor rooms (hotel has only 4 floors) have stunning views of ocean, but you have to stipulate...
