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.

Spent the day at the hotel, such a fresh take on hospitality from small details of signage saying heart of house, rather than back of house, Malibongwe so helpful and accommodating amongst all friendly staff thank you

Radisson Red has one the best locations. Very “quick & safe” walk to VA Waterfront. Room was so clean, quiet, bed and linens super comfortable. All the staff members we had contact with were most helpful. Love this hotel.

In Cape Town for a week on business and selected this hotel. It’s super bright and super loud... not suitable for business travelers. Fine if you’re on a holiday. Even breakfast is a chaotic experience. I did have a lovely view from my room.

Enjoyed my brief stay and found all staff to be pleasant and general service great, room clean and comfortable with a great view. Unfortunately did not enjoy my experience in the restaurant, service was slow, no attention to detail wrt cutlery being available on the table, having to grab the attention of a waiter to get another drink. Wanting to give the "large " menu back to the waiter and being told it belongs on the table. I did not want it on the table as it was a small single table. Sick waiter coughing and spluttering. Having said all of that, I have stayed at this Hotel many times and have always had an awesome stay, to the point that this is my preferred hotel, so righting this off to a once off. Read less
