Very large luxurious room with all the amenities, large outdoor pool, great for a short stay after a long flight. We were there 3 days. There are beautiful but overpriced stores in which to shop. The breakfasts were abundant with a wide variety of choices. We had dinner there once and found it uninspired, not the best attention to our... More

Great hotel. Great service and great restaurants. It has a Nobu at the hotel. It is very close to table top mountain and to the pier. Very well located. The pool and spa are also beautiful. Service could not be better.

The One&Only Cape Town is located right in the Waterfront, the trendy area of Cape Town. It is an Ultra-Modern hotel, something you will take note of the minute you walk in the front door. The staff is very friendly. The hotel features two restaurants, one of which is the trendy and delicious NOBU. The rooms are also very nice,... More

We had a single room overlooking Table Mountain. Great views and great service. The landscaped grounds were fantastic to walk around and was easily walkable to shops nearby. Would recommend this hotel.
