Radisson Red

Cape Town, South Africa

The hotel

Paving the way for the next generation of hotels, Radisson RED Cape Town isn’t just somewhere to bed down – from high-tech touches to sustainable craft cuisine, it’s a lifestyle choice. Daring design and funky features make it just as desirable as its coveted location (in Cape Town’s fashionable V&A Waterfront district and by the sightseeing pick-up point), so you’ll be excused for ‘dining in’, rather than stepping out to your neighbouring bars and restaurants. OUIBar + KTCHN matches the mood of this bold hotel, with its vivid palette, sustainable ingredients, and unpretentious ‘street food’ menu – you can even pre-order on the RED app. The app also connects you with other guests for city tips, but you’ll probably prefer hanging out with them in person at the RED Roof bar and grill, with its rooftop pool, drinks van, and Table Mountain views.

We made a last minute booking for Radisson Red. This was our 2nd visit with our kids since December. I am always reluctant to visit Cape Town in the winter but if you are going to do it this setting is ideal. Misty mornings overlooking the iconic Table Mountain from our King size bed, strolls through the waterfront and bike riding through Granger Bay and Sea Point. This hotel has a superb location and our hire car was left feeling unloved in the parking lot. We were booked in with Breakfast and I love the innovative technology Radisson use in covid times... menus are on Tv screens with an integrated app. For the kids there is a very clever play area with lego, arts and crafts, table tennis and books.. cue Mom and Dad get to have an actual conversation during breakfast and kids are entertained for hours. I literally had to drag them away. Having bunkbeds with individual Tvs for each child was a huge win. This stay we really enjoyed the Super Park which is an adventure zone for kids as well as the scratch patch and all the many play areas along the waterfront. If you are a seasoned shopper like me the V and A never disappoints and I found myslef clutching for excuses to " pop to Woolies" quick! Finding myself on a new health journey I really enjoyed the Radisson gym.. top equipment and complimentary waters in none other than a RED Smeg fridge... this place is very very cool. Ok enough about decor, food , rooms and entertainment, lets talk staff. This I feel really strongly about. Each and every staff member is superb. You can sense the staff love working here . If you find yourself in a situation where you need to be working remotely this is the place. We had a junior suite and this comes with a 4 seater dining table. Couple this with free wifi and Bob's your uncle.. instant office. We extended our stay for another 3 nights but sadly had to eventually go home. Until next time.. my blood is RED Read less

Location was superb for the waterfront, and the hotel has great staff and a great atmosphere, would highly recommend the place, shame we couldn't enjoy all the facilities due to the lock down (we arrived during stage 4)

I selected this hotel hoping for the location, service, room, dining and relaxation to be ideal for a solo Cape Town trip. It did not only meet my expectations, it blew them away! I can honestly say that this was the most wonderful and safest stay I have ever experienced and I am looking forward to the next stay!

The Hotel was well located close to restaurants and the SILO district, service was friendly and exceptional and the COVID procedures were well maintained without being clinical. We felt special and taken care of.
