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.

Simple but nice hotel at a walking distance from Waterfront in Cape Town. Friendly staff. Very practical for a business trip or a city trip. Nice rooftop and pool area. Breakfast could be better though.

We were part of a group that spent three night at the Radisson Red. Its a very funny hotel with lots of energy and an awesome rooftop bar. Breakfast was included and was really good. Only negative is rooms are pretty small, even for a European style hotel,

We stayed for 3 nights in March. Hotel staff are very helpful and friendly, the hotel is quiet and very clean. Superb location. You must visit the rooftop bar for a drink. Breakfast could be more exciting.

Went to Capetown and Radisson Red was my choice for hotel there. Firstly hotel is very well located and very beautiful. When arriving there my reservation was wrong and room type was lower, after showing reservation could get a new room two days later. Room is quite good, well equipped and bed was very comfortable. Room is very clean ! Bathroom is narrow but ok and shower was also very good. Point of attention in my case is that hotel staff does not appear to be enjoying, always very serious and difficult to get any smile. I got a good impression from porter whom helped us when we asked for extra towel that took long to be brought. There is a roof bar with small pool, but could not enjoy so much as it is windy in Capetown. Then pool is ok but getting out is cold. Breakfast is Ok, when getting cold. For hot there is some long lines sometimes, again, if you don’t ask anything, there is not much care from hotel staff. Read less

I didn’t sleep here,was there for a function on the rooftop.Food was good and staff was friendly and helpful.The view from the rooftop is spectacular.This hotel is very hip and is very central to the V&A waterfront.I would not mind coming back and sleep here while exploring the night life of the city
