The Commodore has it all. From making transportation reservations before our arrival to its wonderful staff at the front desk, the Admiralty Bar, and the restaurant. The rooms are very comfortable and the pool is a wonderful oasis after touring Cape Town.

Excellent service from the moment we arrived until we departed. Great location for the waterfront. Even with the power outages, the rooms still had some light and the refrigerator stayed on.

Nice property, close enough to The V & A Waterfront. An easy 5-10 minute walk. (More lighting, especially in stairways, would be appreciated however the hotel has nothing to do with this.) Complimentary valet was a nice touch. Staff was friendly.

When first going to the hotel, we entered The Commodore hotel into the GPS and it took us to a very bad part of town. Th problem is that this hotel does not have an exact street address. GPS has two options for this hotel. They need to correct this issue
