We stayed here for three nights a part of our SA tour and it was very pleasant , we had a business class sea view room which was large and airy. Bed was very comfortable, a nice balcony was unusable as the guest below was smoking a cigar all the time but that's not the hotels fault. Walking distance of...

The rooms are okay, although we had problems with the patio door not closing properly, the shower was leaking badly, and the lamp next to the bed was wobbly. However, when requested, it was repaired quickly. The hotel position is excellent, lovely breakfast. The best thing is the lady Gina in the kiosk where they sell the newspapers, stamps and...

The hotel is located right in the waterfront as its name suggests . Many of the well appointed and immaculate bedrooms have superb views over the ocean . Even though they are more costly it is well worth considering booking a business class room . The ordinary ones are perfectly fine ,however . Some minor issues do need to be...

My main issue with this hotel is that it had no atmosphere and was horribly over-priced for a standard double at £300. I would have been fine with it if it was £120 but it was such a disappointment. The pool was a good temperature but there the infinity had no protection from the wind. It was lovely to look...

This could and should be an excellent hotel. It is beautifully situated having wonderful views of Table Bay and very convenient for the vibrant Waterfront area. The rooms were refurbished only a few years ago and are very comfortable, bright and clean. Having said all this, it is such a pity that the bookings administration process lacks professionalism and check...

Okay so I didn't give the hotel a five star because the view from my room was the car park. Asides from this, everything else was wonderful. Early check in💯, the gym is a fitness addict's slice of heaven💪🏾, the breakfast spread was wonderful and one of my favorite parts was the regular shuttles to the beach and the V&A...

very good staff, very helpful, good rooms (but why do they keep changing the towels even when we hang them up after use? There's a water shortage in the area!) Unlike other Waterfront hotels, you simply can't risk walking back at night - street lights don't work, and some shady characters lurking around. The hotel will sort you out with...

This hotel is in such an amazing location. Overlooking the Ocean, and backdrop of Table Mountain and World Cup stadium. Close to the Town, which is a walking distance with all the shops and eating places to visit on the waterfront. Capetown is just a fantastic place to visit as it has everything. Vineyards, Restaurants, and a place to relax...

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
