Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Unpleasant Covid Staycation
Our stay wasn’t great. We recieved strange and under mediocre service which is detailed below: 1. The hotel is basically self service 2. Valet service was not operating as they let their drivers go during Covid 3. Porters weren’t available for Covid reasons but the other Radisson hotels allowed porters and valet parking 4. Out of 3 lifts, only 1 worked 5. We came home to uncleaned rooms twice 6. The TV didn’t work in the first room and most channels didn’t work in the second 7. On arrival our room was downgraded and when I complained, did we get the correct room 8. No manager, except for SIYA (Night manager) cared or worried about complaints. He handled and resolved ours where as the others didn’t do anything 9. The parking smelt of sewerage and we were expected to pay for it 10. Everytime the neighbor flushed the toilet, your room vibrated 11. NO sanitiser on floor 9 or the lifts 12. Lifts were crowded and rules were not adhered I find the service and Accommodation NOT up to the other radisson blu standards in Cape Town - it wasn’t a friendly or comfortable stay. I am disappointed in the hotel and it’s ability to accommodate guests

1/5 Terrible

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
Disliked: Property conditions & facilities, room comfort
There was no windows for fresh air to come in, but meanwhile the receptionist told me there was at point of check in. Also, they bed was double bed and not king size bed as stated on the booking. Thirdly, one of the cleaners was rude to my wife.
