I have to start by mentioning the suberb service we got(from Christian, Joshua and Donald) during our stay. What was good? Breakfast, beds, location, staff, cleaning, air condition. What was not so good? Wifi was very weak in the room(ok in the lobby/breakfast area). Would stay here again, if the prize is right.

With just eight rooms, and excellent service, this hotel suited us perfectly. It is well situated, being within walking distance, or a very short cab ride, of the popular V & A Waterfront; is very secure; and has onsite parking for up to six cars (in the two weeks we were there it was always easy to find a space)....

The one 8 Hotel is a lovely little hotel, situated near to Waterfront and center (20 minutes walk). The hotel is quiet and is nicely decorated, the room was large enough, the breakfast delicious and the staff is extremely friendly and warm. We felt very comfortable and welcome
