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.

My husband and I recently celebrated our 10-year anniversary and decided to take the kids along with us for a family getaway to celebrate. We chose Radisson RED Cape Town and could not think of a better hotel to have celebrated this milestone with our family of four. The attention to detail was exceptional! From the cute popcorn station upon arrival to all the kiddie activities and treats, kiddie breakfast menu and kiddie breakfast area - my daughters were in kid-heaven! As a Capetonian, the location is fantastic to be a tourist in your own city. We walked everywhere and it was safe, had an unmatched vibes and was a visual feast with the endless views, etc. I can't wait for my next Staycation at Radisson RED Cape Town! Read less

Such a great place, with really fantastic staff and baautiful little touches. I took my wife here for a surprise birthday treat and NOTHING was disappointing in any way. Blown away by great hospitality and a really great hotel in an unbeatable location - with funky touches everywhere.

Excellent location if you want to enjoy the V&A Waterfront. Very close yet not so close that you are bothered by crowds or noise. Room was clean but basic. There was noise coming from somewhere- we think water pipes that was rather annoying as it was so load that it woke us several times throughout the night. The rooftop restaurant is the only place to get breakfast and we found it too casual and loud the evening before. So we had no food there. Nevertheless this was very good value and we had a view so will probably stay there again. They gave us a room upgrade when we checked in. Read less
