“Beautiful Venue for a Wedding Reception!”
Reviewed March 19, 2012

I had the pleasure of attending a wedding reception held at this Hotel. The outside area was beautifully decorated and very sheltered from the wind. Giving it a lovely warm intimate feeling. The food was both beautifully presented and mouth-watering. Unfortunately, I did not have the opportunity of staying in one of the lovely suites, but found the Hotel modern, spotless and cosy. The owners and staff were friendly and accommodating making you feel quite at home. I will most certainly recommend this Hotel to anyone wanting a wedding reception and/or special parties.

A perfect stay with a cool, relaxed atmosphere and ambiance. Spotless rooms, friendly staff, super location, spot on service and lovely food. Would thoroughly recommend to anyone considering staying here. I certainly didn't want to leave!

My partner and I was extremly impressed with this little hotel. The rooms were spotless and large, the bed were very comfy meaning we didn't want to get out of bed early for breakfast, which was fine as breakfast was served till late. The staff were very helpful and it was a pleasure to stay here. The area was safe in and around the hotel which put my mind at ease straight away. We will be staying here again next time in Cape Town.

We found the One 8 after fleeing a terrible, dark, noisy guest house on a sketchy street just off downtown. This place was just the relief we needed. It's an airy and modern, small boutique hotel in the cute and safe residential neighborhood of Green Point. Everything about the design, layout, and location felt very safe and soothing. It was just the hotel we needed--a pleasant place to come back to after each long, hot, exhausting and wonderful day of exploring the cape region, to have a dip in the pool and lounge around and check emails before dinner. We slept like babies (it was so quiet) and woke up happy each day.

I really think this has to be one of the best deals in Cape Town. It was only US $20 more per night than the "budget" guest house we first booked, and has modern, clean, spacious, comfortable rooms with high ceilings and modern high-end bath fixtures in the huge bathroom; and big glass sliding doors open to outside in every room and let in tons of light and sea air.

The look is tastefully modern and simple. It's not big, so it feels more like an "express" hotel than a big hub of activity, but it has more amenities and privacy than a B&B. It has secured private parking (a huge plus), a serene lobby with a bar, a decent little free breakfast, and the very peaceful, leafy pool and deck area. It was just the right vibe for us.

Green Point is a great area to stay in--on such hot days, the sea breezes really were nice compared to the city bowl. You're right off the road to the beaches and it's easy to get to the motorway to wine country, or a super-quick drive (or longer, but doable once or twice, walk) to the city center. However, it still offers some things to do on foot, and at night we felt very safe walking around the area. The hotel is 3 blocks on foot from a drugstore and 7-Eleven at the beginning of the Main Road Sea Point strip, where there are loads of places to eat or grab a coffee and plenty of people walking around after dark.

The staff were all really helpful too, and the ladies serving breakfast, Verona and Janet, really made us smile.

Maybe it's not the kind of hotel that is trying to blow your mind with its luxury and amenities, but it was a super-pleasant, relaxing neighborhood spot, and for the price it can't be beat.

We were quite surprised at how good this place was as it was so reasonably priced. The staff were all extremely welcoming and helpful. The room was lovely, spacious and comfortable and every day we came back to chocolates on our pillows. The location was perfect for visiting the area, mid way between the Waterfront and Camps Bay. If we come back to Cape Town, which I have no doubt we will, we will return to the One 8. Excellent.

Room Tip: We had the standard room and it was more than adequate. No view though.
