My wife and I stayed here for a quiet couples weekend away. We have learnt to never expect too much and (hopefully) be surprised. Luckily the hotel did tick (mostly) all the right boxes. We arrived early. The staff member at reception was very friendly and helpful. We were checked in in no time and our luggage was stored for... More

This was an interesting hotel. It is in a quiet location but is not easy to get in and out of. At first glance, when one has negotiated the entrance, it looks modern, and many of the features are exactly that. However on closer inspection there are several areas where the work has not been executed well. We stayed in... More

Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback. Our address is shown clearly on all maps as Green Point, in fact Three Anchor Bay is more towards Beach Road and we had to change our address on several websites to illustrate this, all roads between Glengariff, Main and Somerset are Green Point. Unfortunately your room was not the original... More

Location of the hotel is perfect, its very cozy small hotel, perfectly clean, staff is very helpful and willing to help with anything you need. Room was clean, furniture was nice and new, spacious wardrobes, kettle with tea and coffee, bed was super comfy. Breakfast selection is smaller but its just enough, the lady cooks eggs, bacon, sausages, tomatoes, toast... More

Hotel has a great location in Greenpoint. City bus stops are close, Hopp on Hopp off bus stop 5-7 minutes walk. Nice and clean room, friendly staff and good breakfast. I preordered the airport shuttle trough the hotel, probably it was more expensive than a regular taxi(not sure) but really nice drivers and safe.

Enjoyed the stay. But breakfast is only served from 8:00. Unfortunately i will not stay here again because of that. We travel to cape town twice a month for 2-3 days and usually our day starts by 7:00 to 7:30. Breakfast should be served at standard times most hotels serve. This should be from latest 6:30am

Thank for taking the time to provide us with feedback. I was on duty when you checked in so I'm a little confused with the comment about breakfast times. Breakfast service starts at 07:30h for at least 3 hours, similar to many small boutique hotels catering to the holiday market and as a result of guest feedback the breakfast service... More

A small, quiet and nice hotel with helpful staff. Very nice to have access to the pool and the free parking! Small but sufficient breakfast selection. The staff is helpful and arrange activities after your needs. This hotel is recommended due to it’s smallness and calm.

I just loved the One 8 Hotel. Everything about it brought pleasure to my stay in Cape Town. The staff, from the owner, Peter, down to the maids who doubled as waitresses and cooks, were professional and pleasant. I had a late flight and Peter allowed me to keep the room until I was ready to go -- without extra... More

Needed somewhere quiet and comfortable for our first few nights in SA and needed to be within walking distance of the Waterfront. The One 8 fitted the bill perfectly. Super staff, really comfortable and superb breakfasts.
