This hotel is beautiful!! You couldn't ask for a better location either.. It backs right onto the vibrant, very popular V&A Waterfront. In less the a 5 minute walk you are in the heart of everything! The rooms are very large, clean and well appointed. Including a mini bar, and coffee maker! We had a view of the pool area,...

Had a lovely stay at The Commodore Hotel for 4 nights in April. The room was comfortable, the staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was fantastic and the hotel location near the waterfront was just fantastic. I would definitely recommend this Hotel if you are in Cape Town.

This hotel is near the Waterfront, a short 5 minute walk away. Very convenient. Service is nice. Room is comfortable. Internet speed is slow and has a limit of 500 MB. Overall a great hotel with great location.

The location is great, it's walking distance to Waterfront area. The hotel room was good but not so big and I felt the bed was not super comfortable (too hard). The parking was just below the Hotel, but there is no direct stairway to it, only from the side of the Hotel (outside). The most disappointed experience was omelet I...

I thought this hotel might have seen better days but we were really surprised at the service offered and the location, being 5 minutes only from the Waterfront. We wre really impressed by the staff and the quality of the food. We used it as the last stop after a month in SA and it was really great for that...

Great welcome with a quick check-in and the room was good. The staff were very friendly and efficient, the breakfast was good and so we're the cocktails at the bar!! Very good location close to the waterfront where there's a great choice of bars and restaurants. Would definitely recommend if you're staying in Cape Town.

Great hotel within 5 minute easy walking distance of all the attractions of the waterfront and Saturday morning's Green park parkrun! We stayed there for 4 nights and found the hotel staff all very helpful.

The Commodore is a well appointed hotel. We stayed in a standard room which was spacious and very clean. The mattress was firm with double pillows. The white tile bathroom was fine with spacious shower and lots of hot water (despite the SA drought). We overlooked the pool area which was attractive, especially at night. The only (slight) negative was...
