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.

Since I'm involved in the tourism industry on a professional level I tend to be a tad critical, but our stay was completely faultless. Radisson Red is central to absolutely everything we required for our stay in the V & A, making it a breeze to walk wherever we needed or wanted to be. Personnel, and here I must make special mention of Gabi and Themba (FOH), were outstanding and super attentive. We were spoiled rotten. Rooftop was another amazing experience with great food, much laughter and stunning views. The personnel and management of The Rooftop are to be commended for their service and sparkling personalities. Very noticeable is the outstanding Covid sanitation regime throughout the establishment. There are many establishments that can take a lesson here. Thank you guys we are going to make this a regular thing. It's the people that make the machine work! Barbara & Cara Read less

We stayed for 2 nights. Two rooms were booked inter leading. The hotel is well located in the V n A Waterfront , Silo District. The rooms are of a good size with all the amenities. Breakfast was very nice. On the floor we stayed there was a coffee machine to use at leisure, even though for some periods of time it was out of service. In the morning juice as well as bottled water is provided next to the coffee machine which is a lovely gesture. Tea, hot chocolate is also available at the coffee station on the room floor. Redisson Red , is an entry level four star hotel which tries its best to deliver a unique and hip experience. I was happy with my two night stay, which was just enough. The parking is charged separately which as a traveler you need to be aware of. Wonderful location , lovely breakfast and comfortable room. Read less
