We loved this hotel as it is located so close to the V&A Waterfront with its awesome shops and restaurants.

I enjoyed a private meal in the stylish dining area with my fiancee. For us this was the best hotel choice for our stay in Cape Town as all was within walking distance for us.

We had a nice stay at The Commodore Hotel in Cape Town. What we liked most is that we did not need a rental car as the hotel is located in short walking distance to the nice V&A Waterfront.

Thanks Team for a nice stay,

The location is excellent, not noisy but very close to Cape Town city and the V&A Waterfront which was very convenient for us. Although we checked in very late, the staff was very helpful and welcomed us. We had a very pleasant stay at The Commodore.
