Radisson Blu Hotel and Residence

Cape Town, South Africa

The hotel

Nestled between the Atlantic Ocean and Table Mountain, the Radisson Blu Hotel & Residence offers some fantastic views from the terrace, where you can enjoy sumptuous steak at The Stratus Room and unwind from a day of meetings or sightseeing. That’s what’s perfect about this hotel, it accommodates both business and leisure travellers in terms of both location and facilities. In the heart of the business district, but within walking distance of V&A waterfront and the restaurants and premium shopping it has to offer. Table Mountain, Signal Hill and Cape Town Stadium are all close by, so be sure not to miss a trip out to take in such sights – even if it is tempting to chill by the rooftop pool with a cocktail in hand all day. The apartments are perfect for longer stays, complete with kitchenette and room to spread out, with shades of azure, white and cloudy grey to match the ocean views.

The hotel needs to pay more attention to the finer details. Checking the rooms before someone checks in to ensure all in order. The bathrooms don't have extraction fans. Our bed was broken. That should have been sorted before I checked in. The facilities listed wasnt provided. Housekeeping takes too long to respond.

just what I was looking for, a hotel in the center, with quality services, and a room according to the quality of the chain it represents. Although it is true that some of the people at the reception did not seem the most professional, perhaps it was my appreciation, or they simply did not have a better day, the rest seemed to me the most correct… Read more

Although it is true that some of the people at the reception did not seem the most professional, perhaps it was my appreciation, or they simply did not have a better day, the rest seemed to me the most correct and within the expected.

Just awful. This hotel surely has the most indifferent, uncaring and unprofessional staff in the hospitality industry. Out of 4 lifts, only one was working at the height of the holiday season. Not only was this an inconvenience, it resulted in unacceptable crowding and any compliance to COVID-19 protocols was completed disregarded.

They more worried about collecting your room number at the door than attending to the breakfast buffet or guests. The food is not monitored or replenished. Stale muffins that are already past their sell by date. No cups for Cappuccino, or glasses for orange juice on several breakfast occassons. Then coffee machine runs out of beans, nobody… Read more
They more worried about collecting your room number at the door than attending to the breakfast buffet or guests. The food is not monitored or replenished. Stale muffins that are already past their sell by date. No cups for Cappuccino, or glasses for orange juice on several breakfast occassons. Then coffee machine runs out of beans, nobody monitors. No brown sugar. No tables for guests to sit at. Tables left with old dirty crockery from previous guests. Sticky floor in buffet area. Nobody sanitizes hands on entry of restaurant. Dinner restaurant food variety and presentation not good at all. No ambiance. Read less

Loved the fact that our rooms where interlinked because we were traveling with 2 kids and we could always check up on them from just a step away. The afternoon shuttle driver she is a jolly and very friendly lady and always in a happy mood and making sure that passengers are at ease.
