We really enjoyed our stay at the One 8. The service was very good. The only problem w encountered was that the rooms were only cleaned very late. The breakfasts were lovely, service very friendly. The pool area was lovely and we enjoyed our swims in the slightly heated pool. The bar service was very expensive. make sure you book... More

Thank you so much for taking the time to write your review, we really appreciate the feedback. We were concerned about your comment of bar prices as we benchmark all the prices below the local hotel average but we will double check again as this is the first time this has ever been raised. Rooms are serviced between 11h00 and... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our one week stay at this boutique hotel, within walking distance to V&A Waterfront and close to public transport. Staff very helpful and pleasant.. Rooms very nice with adequate space and outdoor balcony. Back from the main road so nice and peaceful.

Very friendly staff, nice clean room, very silent, good breakfast. Unfortunately the location offers no views. Save parking is highly appreciated, but with a big car the entrance is a (manageable) challenge.

Donald is a very friendly guy @the reception to assist. Close to waterfront and to clifton bay. Rooms have a high ceiling which is very nice and are pretty spacious. Breakfast was very good. Entire hotel is nicly decorated and you feel very welcome.

We stayed at The One 8 hotel for 3 nights and loved it. Comfy beds and excellent breakfast. The staff was very helpful. The pool was a nice option to cool off in after exploring Cape Town. I would stay here again.

Good parking lot, good sleep quality, few rooms so no noise from other guests. Good breakfast even if no so early in the morning. Minus: no lift. Must use car to go to restaurants but they are not far: 10 minutes drive.

The One 8 hotel is overrated. The room was great, nice and spacious and bed provided a good night's sleep. Minibar is very basic, don't get your expectations up. Food service after a long day is non-existant. Breakfast starts at 8am only, and the staff is very uneager to assit you with a decent breakfast before this time, even by... More

We booked this hotel after lots of research and we were not disappointed! This is a brilliant little hotel. Only 8 rooms, everywhere spotlessly clean and all the staff are really friendly. The guys on reception are great, really helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Great location in a quiet residential area so great nights sleep in big comfy... More

The One 8 is a very comfortable beautifully appointed hotel. Someone with great taste looked after the details. We had a room with a balcony that was roomy with a very modern 2 sink bathroom. The breakfasts were made to order with lots of homemade delights. The service was outstanding. They anticipated our needs and arranged for cabs, gave important... More

Thank for providing valuable feedback although we are disappointed you were not completely satisfied.

The breakfast service... More
