Take in views of the beautiful waters of the Atlantic Ocean and the private marina from the Radisson Blu Hotel Waterfront in Cape Town. This seaside hotel is close to the city center, as well as all the big cultural offerings. The striking ocean views set the stage for a memorable stay in Cape Town. Wake to the sound of gentle waves breaking on the shore before embarking on a day of exploration. Take our complimentary shuttle bus to and from the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront - a popular shopping, dining and entertainment area. Other nearby attractions include Table Mountain and Robben Island, which is home to one of the city's most visited museums.

Guests have called out the exceptional amenities, such as the infinity pool and comprehensive breakfast, as highlights of their stay.

I have been staying here for a few weeks now and I am honestly having a good time. The views are breathtaking. The location is central but still tucked away. The staff are professional and very friendly. Jerry is the best! Looking forward to coming back already.

Hotel's Favourite
It was my first time in Cape Town and my first time at a Radisson Blu property and it was great. Everyone I encountered was friendly and eager to assist and the property itself is very well located with easy access to the waterfront area by a hotel shuttle. The view from the hotel’s restaurant is amazing and if you are lucky you will get to see an otter flapping about. I want to give special thanks to Zoe who checked me in, Lolo who does amazing omelets, Joel from the Spa and Yusuf from concierge. Would stay again 100% and will recommend.

Great Trip playing cricket in the Western Cape Concierge and Door staff couldn't have been more helpful organising our bus and the transfers to the Waterfront. The even claimed to have booked the Whale in the bay especially for us on the last day! So a big shout out for Manfred & David. Good location - bar staff could have been a bit quicker at times but apart from that would thoroughly recommend.

As a resident Capetonian, I've been to the restaurant at the Radisson for Christmas dinner, met international friends for cocktails, had lunch on the deck and recently went to have afternoon cake on my birthday. The outside deck is my absolute best! Sitting right next to the ocean, listening to the sea splash on the rocks, sighting dolphins (twice now in the past 3 months!), being able to walk down the pier and see Table Mountain in all its glory - and then to be able to eat well presented, delicious food. What's not to love! On my birthday this week, friends and I met for afternoon birthday cake. We were served by the wonderful Busi Bolo who had the most wonderful smile, was so friendly, attentive and gave us outstanding customer service! She also kindly offered to take birthday photos of our group. The absolute cherry on the cake, literally, was when she arrived at our table with the most delightful cake dessert and sang happy birthday to me! I thought one of my friends had arranged it, but it was Busi Bolo. She had obviously seen me receiving my birthday gifts. Thank you Busi for making my Birthday visit to the Radisson so special and memorable!

A BIG shout out to Jerry at the gate who was the most welcoming host ever! I was meeting my husband who had already checked into the hotel the day before and was uncertain whether I would be recognized. However, I was met with a big smile and chivalrously escorted to the entrance of the hotel..
