"Beautiful hotel in a beautiful location"
Spend 3 nights here with the final night upgraded to a business suite due to a malfunctioning aircon. The view from this room is probably the rest in Cape Town with the beautiful waterfront precinct in of you and the Table Mountain in the background. Pity we couldn't spend 3 more nights in this room.
What a wonderful country and place to visit and an excellent hotel. The staff at the Radisson could not do enough for you, always there to help, very friendly and extremely accommodating in all areas from the restaurant, kitchen, reception and porters. I cannot speak too highly. The Concierge staff were also excellent providing guidance and advice. The Business Class rooms were excellent, spacious and we had excellent views to Roben Island. Very safe to travel around visiting Table Mountain, Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, the W&A waterfront, riding the open top tourist bus and also experiencing a helicopter ride, etc. had no concerns regarding our safety whatsoever. Unfortunately, we were unable to visit Roben Island due to rough seas, but it will be our excuse to go back again. The food in the hotel was excellent as was any restaurant we visited, I would strongly recommend Nobu at the One & Only Hotel and Belthazar in the V&S waterfront complex, where the food was excellent and reasonably priced as were lucky to have had a good exchange rate.
"Three Months of bliss in Room 306"
Firstly let me say I'm late in writing this review as my stay was Sep-Nov 2015. I currently on a train travelling from London to Glasgow with a little time on my hands so as the saying goes, better late than never. I spent close to three months in room 306, a business class room with an outstanding view. I work in the film industry and we were shooting a movie in Cape Town at the end of 2015. I was given the choice of a few hotels prior to arriving in Cape Town and I actually chose a different hotel. I won't call it by name but suffice to say it's essence had the feel of colonial past and as nice as some people may find that, it wasn't for me so I asked to have a look at the other hotels that were originally on offer. I looked at a hotel that was more like a night club. No thank you! Then I was told about the Radison Blu on the Waterfront. The downside, I was told, was it's location. Close to the Waterfront and this area is not everyone's cup of tea. Add to that the fact that the hotel is a ten minute car journey to the centre of town and my travel organiser was sure I wouldn't go for it. On arrival I received the warmest of greetings from the guys on the door. I would later get to know these guys on first name terms and they were always welcoming. You enter into open and very spacious area which in design has echoes of being on a ship. Wooden hand rails. portholes etc. I was shown a room at the back of the hotel with a view of the football stadium used in the World Cup finals and then I was shown room 306. The room and the view took my breath away. I turned to my travel organiser and asked if I could be in this room by next day and when the answer came back yes, I had the biggest smile on my face. If you have to spend three months in one location. You have to be comfortable, at ease with your surroundings. From the colour scheme to the layout, Room 306 was ideal. Whether you were looking from the sofa or the balcony the sea view was outstanding. Lots to see on this side of the Atlantic. Oil tankers slowly emerging from the horizon arriving and then leaving port. The pirate party ship. Various sized yachts and on a few occasions dolphins who come to visit every now and then could be seen frolicking in the distance. The business class rooms are like a suite. It's open plan but the bedroom can be separated off for privacy when needed. This worked great when my wife and twin boys joined me for a week half way through my stay. Breakfast and lunch are served from a buffet and is excellent. I can't speak highly enough of the staff who are all great around the hotel. Ok so If you stay somewhere for three months you are going to encounter problems of some kind. So what are the cons' Well... the bar, I think could do with a make over. It doesn't quite match up to the rest of the hotel. It's a bit bland and for a hotel like this I think the powers that be could make this space a little more inviting. I will say that apparently in the summer the main bar is in the outside so if you're staying in the summer months you'll get a different experience to mine. The only other downside was the an issue with the spa. This area is run separately from the Radisson. This didn't work great for me because after a long days filming one of the best ways I find to decompress is to visit the Spa and make use of the sauna and steam room. The sauna was located inside the men's dressing room and quite small and in order to use the steam room you had to book a treatment of some kind. Again, when you are staying somewhere for a long time this isn't great. I never did book a treatment because on principal I think these facilities should be free when you're staying at the hotel. Having said that the gym area and spa pool were both top notch. I did in the end spend many a relaxing hour there. I should just mention that in terms of location, this really wasn't a problem. Shuttle services from the hotel to the Waterfront, where you can find plenty of outstanding food, from burgers to ribs to lovely seafood, run frequently. When I needed to get into town, I simply jumped into an Uber. I used them all the time and I found them to be reliable and courteous on all but a couple of occasions. The guys at the door can also pick you up one of the waiting taxi's but I like Uber because I know what I'm getting. I've stayed in many hotels all over the world and I can say without hesitation in terms of overall experience over an extended stay, Radisson Blu, room 306 is the best of the bunch. Before I left, I set my camera to record and left it on the balcony looking out to the sea for an hour. This was something I did all the time at different time of the day. When I travel back to Cape Town this spot will be my first choice.
"Great hotel, amazing view from business rooms. Stuff were unpleasent"
I had a one night visit at the Radisson, I have arrived at 2pm to the hotel, the room had a parking view. I have decided to upgrade the room to see view as I wanted to upgrade my experience. The room was amazing, I had a great view. The only thing that I would have change it the service that I have got from the stuff. They were not inviting and I have felt all the time that they don't want to serve me (even though I have upgraded the room !!)
"Business Class Room with a view"
We had an enjoyable and relaxing stay 3 night stay at the Radisson Blu Waterfront at the start of our South African roadtrip. The business class room we stayed in (110) was excellent and although situated close to the bar area we never heard any undue noise. The room itself was more of a suite than a normal room and in this hotel especially, I thought the extra to upgrade was money well spent. The sea facing rooms each have a balcony which is great for watching sunrise and sunset. Breakfast was excellent with lots of choice available; traditional, continental and waffles/omelettes made to order etc. The door staff were polite, friendly and incredibly efficient at getting taxi's. The hotel runs an hourly shuttle bus service to the Waterfront area but it's an easy 10 minute walk or R50 in a taxi if you don't want to wait. When we visited (in winter) lots of parking was available at the hotel but I am not sure if this would fill up in peak season so it's worth checking the hotel directly when booking. The only minor thing I could pick fault with was the concierge. We asked the concierge to call the District Six museum to see if there were still tickets available for a guided tour... instead of being helpful and quickly calling the museum for us we were presented with a brochure/list of trips and tours that a partnering tour company could provide - none of which even related to our initial request. Having said that, prior to our arrival, the hotel had helped us make a number of restaurant reservations so perhaps we just caught them on an off day. On the whole I would definitely stop here again if back in Cape Town.
