Nice hoetel, walking distance to waterfront

Posted Apr 16, 2015
Pros: I like the ocean view, and the service from staff.
Cons: It would help if they invested in a generator, power cut is something that is prone to most countries in Africa
Everything was good, very good food and service, only problem was when there was a power cut the hotel did not have a generator, so we were without electricity for a few hours.

Not so Blu at the Radisson

Posted Apr 11, 2015
Pros: Friendly staff, excellent location and value for money in the restaurant..
Cons: Not much, but I really do think hotels of this standard should have shaving mirrors for that extra comfort.
Location: Victoria and Alfred harbor area, sightseeing tour buses, aquarium, Fort Wynyard museum, beach area.
First time to Cape Town and we decided to stay at some where a bit more expensive than we usually book, but generally the room price was relatively good for the location. The hotel itself we felt was a fabulous location being right on the waterfront with beautiful views of the sea and of table mountain. It was very secure and relatively quiet, yet only a 15 minute walk to the buzzing Victoria and Alfred waterfront area and 5 minutes to the start of the beach area. The staff were very pleasant and knowledgeable assisting us in booking tours and providing very useful advice as well as free bottled water. The room was clean, comfortable with tea/coffee making facilities and a well stocked mini-bar. The bathroom was also clean and comfortable, my only grumble being there was no separate shaving mirror. We also liked the eco approach to re-using towels and the free wi-fi. Being close the V&A area meant that everything was convenient, especially the City Sightseeing tour buses based in the V&A area. We would thoroughly recommend the 2 day tickets that allow you to use both bus hop-on/hop-off tour routes and the canal cruise to/from the Cape Town International Conference Center. The views are so impressive that it's worth going round each tour route at least twice if you can find the time to really get your money's worth. We would also recommend doing the Peninsular one day or half day tour.

Mooi hotel op loopafstand van V&A Waterfront Mall

Posted Jan 30, 2015
Pros: De ligging en de keuken.
Location: V&A Waterfront Mall. Excursies vanuit het hotel te regelen. Cape of Good Hope. Aquila Safari. Blaubergstrand
Mooi hotel, 5 sterren waard. Goede keuken en vriendelijk personeel. Strand is niet direct in de buurt. Taxi is direct bij het hotel.

What a great hotel and staff to go with it.

Posted Jan 16, 2015 on Hotels.com
We have been in this hotel before and enjoyed it, on that occasion looking back at the stadium. On this occasion we were given a room overlooking the sea and the Waterfront. It was absolutely wonderful and most unexpected. On top of that, the staff just couldn't do enough for us. We don't ask for special attention but when you get it, unbeckoned, it is a huge bonus and is bound to sway your choice in the future.

med lite tålamod ett fantastiskt hotell!

Posted Jan 5, 2015 on Hotels.com
Mycket bra läge, poolen lite liten och trångt med solstolar. Otroligt god mat, verkligen suberb. Servicen är trevlig och alltid positiv, men flera gånger uppstod fel med taxibilar som inte kom som var bokade av hotellet, väcktes av recepionen om bil beställd som inte var till oss etc! Glömde städa hotelreummet, som var business två gånger! Manikyren inte att rekommendera, men igen, jätte trevlig personal.

Too corporate

Posted Nov 5, 2014
Nice hotel but too sterile and not for families. The staff were all lovely and the position near(ish) the Waterfront is good but not the place for a family holiday. Also there is 1 pool outside which is too cold for anyone below the age of 5 and people under the age of 16 are not allowed to use the inside pool.
