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.

I’m currently staying at the hotel and I’m ok with the room service cause whenever I come back I find my room spotless, thank you to the cleaning staff, however, I’m not happy with the fact that every time I call and ask to warm my food as I only eat lunch and dinner later than the usual times and I’ll be told I can’t warm my food and I’m forced to eat it cold which is not acceptable! It happens every time I call and ask and I’m not happy with that. I would like a request to be able to warm my food when I’m ready to eat please. Read less
