Travelers' Choice
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.

Hotel's Favorite
It was my first time in Cape Town and my first time at a Radisson Blu property and it was great. Everyone I encountered was friendly and eager to assist and the property itself is very well located with easy access to the waterfront area by a hotel shuttle. The view from the hotel’s restaurant is amazing and if you are lucky you will get to see an otter flapping about. I want to give special thanks to Zoe who checked me in, Lolo who does amazing omelets, Joel from the Spa and Yusuf from concierge. Would stay again 100% and will recommend.

Fantastic, location, great staff, excellent rooms and Views, views, views, sleeping with the sound of the ocean. Have a sundowner at the bar and just soak up the atmosphere, looking out to sea and Robin island. walking distance to the waterfront. 5 minute uber to town. great Piano music in the evenings. Restaurant a tad pricey for what you get, but hey this is Cape Town and one of its top hotels. Reception staff are professional and super helpful.

Enjoyed my stay, 👏 amazing views of the sea and yatchs. See facing rooms are luxurious big and very comfortable. Beds are turned over at night , with a special good night touch on the pillow. The bath room has both a bath tub and a shower, love that bath salts are also provided. Will definitely book again for leisure.

What a wonderful stay we had. Great location very clean and well maintained recently refurbished rooms with delightful staff from housekeepers to concierge. Only 15 minutes leisurely walk to the the V&A quarter, and a beautiful run route along the sea front in the opposite direction. If you have the opportunity to get a sea facing room do as in winter you get to see both sunrise and sun set as well as listen to the sea as it rolls onto the promenade below. Absolutely unquestionably will stay here again!

Very relaxed environment. I really enjoyed dinner whilst overseeing the ocean and watching birds. It is a beautiful scene to behold and the pool is spotlessly clean. The personnel is very friendly and always willing to be of assistance.

Great location! Great staff. Bedrooms are very nice and the bathroom too. Great breakfast is included. The area of the restaurant has this great view of the ocean. You cannot miss the sunset there - ask for a drink ! There is also a shuttle to take you to the waterfront every hour

Expected better. Food at the bar was unpleasant, meat tasted old/frozen for a long time. The bed was terrible to the point I did not get much sleep. Service was very good though and the staff are always professional.

Dear Mr. Steel Thank you for taking the time to give us feedback on Trip Advisor. We pride ourselves in the quality of food we serve to our guest and are disappointed to hear that you feel that your meal was not up to your expectations. I am greatly concerned that the quality of your sleep was not good, as we have recently changed our mattresses, I will be looking into this immediately to ensure that this is not your experience on your next stay.
