    friendly staff”

    Great checkin and the guy who checked us in even came back to give easter chocolates and sweets to my children. we've gotten an upgrade which was cool as we did not want to be in separate rooms. Was a bit concerned about the reviews by previous guests with their personal items or money stolen in the room so using the safe (and it was bigger than normal) was necessary. Their warning signs cannot be ignored as notices are all over the room. Weather was not so good when we arrived but the last 2 days were great! Thank you Commodore Hotel!

    Fab location”

    Hotel is located at less then 5 minutes walk of the V&A mall and waterfront. Nice rooms, all amenities available, lovely pool with area to soak up the sun, amazing views of the table mountain and fab staff! We had a wonderful stay. The room was cleaned to a good standard, but if the flooring and the walls would be refreshed, it would give a cleaner feel.

    Normal hotel of that class. 10 minute walk to waterfront concrete commercial jungle and hop on bus stop. Micity bus stop outside but never found out where to buy a pass. I got food poisoning from local restaurant and noone from hotel checked on me. The porter kindly went to collect prescription for me. Nice big shower. Fab breakfast. Pool unheated and in the shade in afternoon.

    Perfect location, clean rooms, awesome breakfast!”

    This hotel is located Waterfront which is probably the safest town in Cape Town. I booked this accommodation super last minute because I got robbed in Long Street and I got really paranoid so I booked a hotel room. Best decision I've done the whole trip! It is near the Cape Town Port which is such a beautiful place with the perfect view of Table Mountain! Another best thing is it's near awesome restaurants especially Belthazar! Loved it there! Oh it's super near the hop on-hop off main station so you it was super convenient! So yeah I love this hotel! :) I'll definitely stay again if I ever go to Cape Town again.

    Truly a lovely hotel. Although the hotel is little bit dated, room is clean, spacious and the staff is friendly and helpful. Location is very near the harbour. Breakfast spread was good but remains the same for the 3 days we were there. We would still choose this hotel if we are to visit cape town again.

    Hotel was great, one of the best international breakfast I had. Drive is a must if you want to go to other parts of the town. However, its location beside V&A waterfront is great if that is where you will spend most of your time

    The Commodore was a very comfortable holiday hotel, worthy of an extended stay. The staff were very attentive throughout our stay (7 nights) and the room was cleaned and serviced every day. It is situated a very short walk from all the fabulous amenities of the V&A waterfront. The breakfasts catered for all tastes with a very pleasant dining area and lounge /bar area. I would highly recommend this hotel to the budget conscious traveller who enjoys a high standard for their money.

    Convenient location – great breakfast

    Five stars (may be four stars) hotel is in VA water front area. The hotel location is convenient near the harbor, shopping center, restaurants, and red bus city tour. A park is not far too, about 20 min walk. Once reached the park, the other end of the park is the ocean. It is nice to walk along the ocean side walk. The rooms are of five stars standards and modern style relatively large. The Check-in and checkout is easy without any hassle. The breakfast is excellent with variety of choices. Staff is very friendly and speaks good English.

    5 star hotel at 4 star prices. ”

    From the moment you enter into the spacious, cool, lobby you are met with 5 star treatment. The staff are unassuming and helpful. I felt as if I was aboard a luxury liner. Worth upgrading to a junior suite if you can as the other rooms are not large. The bar fridge, room service, laundry, I called... they came. Sumptuous bed was indicative of the standard of everything to do with this hotel., comfortable, clean, bright and light.. what was there, worked. What wasn’t simply had to be asked for. The option of swimming and dining at their ‘sister hotel’ adjacent just added to the feeling of ‘holiday resort’ not a 5 minute walk to the ever popular V&A Waterfront with a myriad of bars, extensive shopping experience and restaurants serving everything from fresh caught lobster to Ostrich and even McDonalds. If you have one destination in mind next year and it’s Cape Town, don’t waste your time snd money going anywhere else...this is every inch a 4 star hotel...run by 5 star people.

    Very good location for V&A”

    Close to the entrance of V&A. Very nice entrance. Hall. When checking in staff was friendly and quick, not so much when checking out. They did not even look up. Parking was included which was great, we walked from there. Very hot in the room, we could not figure out how to make it cooler. By then we were in nighties and did not want to bother staff, so I opened a window facing courtyard. Had to put up with noisiness then. We did not eat there as there are so many place at the Waterfront. Staff not sure whether they should help us with luggage when checking out. We did not want to leave yet and they kept asking us to bring the car around. Eventually 2 helped to take luggage to car park. Figure out aircon and plugs when you arrive so they can help with that before it’s too late.

    Great location”

    I have stayed twice in this hotel due to its location next to Waterfront. Classic style hotel with refurbished rooms, much better than my last stay. Rooms: unfortunately the A/C device is too noisy, the old one was noisy and the new one too (I decided to switched it off). I always appreciate a water boiler in my rooms, but lid hinge was broken. If water boiler was regularly scrubbed someone had to notice it. I didn't mind but I hope they had fixed it. Empty fridge.Check-in: I informed about early check-in during booking, but my flight was delayed, I arrived before official check-in time, not too much. In the meantime I asked for a cup of wine in the hotel lobby. When I was drinking my second sip of wine, I discovered a small insect swimming in my cup. The waiter gave me another one. Half an hour later I was informed my room was ready and then I finished my wine,in the last sip I felt something strange in my lips, it was again a small fly. I didn't complain but staff never was friendly
