Other reviewers of this wonderful hotel have stated well, and eloquently, how beautiful the rooms are, the excellent service they enjoyed, the bar and restaurant facllities being way above standard, so I will add another perspective that for a Cape Town visit is important. The location of the hotel, and the security they provide for guests, is paramount, as Cape Town is not a city that affords tourists, or residents, safe evening or after-dark walking or touring. If you are not a South Africa citizen and thus familiar with the "shut down" after dark mindset, it can be unsettling to be stuck in a hotel removed from dining or entertainment choices. Being at the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront complex is a HUGE advantage as a tourist, because it appeared to us to be the only area that afforded safe nightime strolling and dining choices. All the local people we met, as well as friends we spoke with before leaving on this trip, advised us that Cape Town is NOT a place to find yourself walking back to your hotel after dinner and a show, forcing people to use taxi's and cars. The One and Only is a lovely property with views toward Table Mt, but to my mind, it's situation in the midst of the bustling waterfront, next to the Aquarium and nearby upscale restaurants and shops, is its' biggest asset.

Room Tip: The price differential is not high so look for a room that has direct views toward Table Mountain, and that is floor 5 or higher.

One of the most beautiful hotels I have ever experienced. The suites are enormous, very well appointed, comfortable yet luxurious and very clean. Beautiful views, great food, lovely spa and pool. Really no reason to leave!

We stayed here for a international congress, so more business than pleasure.
The hotel was great with an impeccable service. Nothing to comment on !
However I would not stay here for pleasure, it is for me too much a business like hotel. Maybe I'm too spoiled.
But defintely worth while and very nice location, close to all the restaurants and shopping district.

The first thing you notice when you walk into the One and Only, is the view from the lobby. It is Beautiful! You have a giant-sized window view of Table Mountain. It could not be more spectacular. After you check into your room, you realize that every room in the hotel has this same beautiful view. The rooms are very spacious with extremely comfortable beds and well-appointed bathrooms. The breakfast buffet has all that you could want to get going in the morning. The only negative comment about the room is that the light switches are somewhat confusing and difficult to figure out how they work. The location is wonderful, easy walking distance to the marketplace and marina, which provides numerous shopping and dining options.
There was some slight confusion when we checked in about receiving our luggage, but once it arrived, we could not have asked for a more lovely place to stay.

Room Tip: They are all great!

We stayed in One & Only Capetown with 2 children and we all loved it. In the middle of Capetown with a view on the table mountain and 5 min walk from all the restaurants and shops of Victoria and Alfred waterfront.Great!Beautiful pool, great to relax but also good for children to play. The restaurant next to the pool has very nice food.
