The hotel is nice- big rooms, comfortable beds and included breakfast is good. Internet seriously needs to be better though as watching just a video clip is a frustrating experience. Front desk staff are friendly and very helpful.

I really enjoyed my stay at The One 8 Hotel! The room has a good size and it is very clean, the bed and pillows are super comfortable, and the shower is very good, although the bathroom could be bigger. Food at breakfast is good and fresh (fruit, cheese, bread, yogurt), and you can order eggs (any style), bacon and...

It's an nice place in Cape Town. We had a comfortable 5-night stay in winter. A bit overpriced, but it's probably worth in summer when you can enjoy the pool. Location is quite good and free private parking is available. Breakfast is very complete and also includes hot breakfast. They will organise great tours for you in Cape Town if...

Our concerns while booking this hotel proved to be unnecessary! The experience was a great one. The staff were very friendly and caring. On the low side there was an occasion where we had to change rooms and the room we were given was smaller, we complained and we were relocated to a much better room.

Nice small hotel, comfortable rooms and friendly staff. It is well located, in a quiet street in Green Point, 10 minutes by car from the main atractions such as the watefront or camps bay. The neighborhood seemed to be ok as weel. Good cost-benefit, I recommend!
