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.

A great little getaway. Really trendy, comfy and well equipped rooms. The view over the Silo District and The Waterfront was awesome! The rooftop restaurant served the most delicious breakfast, we were really spoilt for choice. The Manager and the Staff were so amazing and did everything to make our stay most comfortable and memorable.

The waitress could have served us better during first breakfast morning. I loved the decor and set up of the red roof restaurant. Read less

They slept late everyday and sid not join myself and my Wife early in the morning. They either went late afternoon or ordered room service. However certain Staff was not aware how this work. The Manager had to expalin it to the staff. Read less

You cannot get any better for location! ... the hotel has a quirkiness to it that is fun. We travelled during level 3 lockdown, it was amazing to have the restaurant and pool on the rooftop. The rooftop views are spectacular!
