The One 8 Hotel

Reviewed 26 December 2013

I knew this would be a good place when I checked in and Donald gave me a detailed rundown of the different neighborhoods of Cape Town and when it would be a good time to visit Table Mountain (and when it would likely be too cloudy). I had a bunch of activities planned, so I didn't explore the area too extensively, but it seemed like a very nice part of town.

We visited the hotel for a few days, it was great. Clean, good room, friendly staff - Donald was amazing. The only thing I would improve is the breakfast, it would have been better to have a small buffet.

Stayed here in December '13 and found it amazing. The rooms are large, clean and bright. The heated pool was bliss. Would definitely recommend this hotel to all. It's in a great location and has super friendly helpful staff. The only downside was the limited bar and somewhat lacklustre breakfast.

The Hotel is an excellent choice instead of staying at a big hotel, as it has all a large hotel has as well. We were very impressed by the rooms and the large showers. The amenities in the bath and the bedding was of very good quality. The location is good in a walking distance to the restaurants in Main Street, even to the Waterfront. Parking is for that area perfect, even on the road we felt the car was save. The only thing we didn't like and we think it should be mentioned was the coffee at breakfast. It just didn't taste good. But the service from Donald and his team was excellent. Many Thanks!

We enjoyed a split stay of 4 nights, then 3 nights here during our 2 weeks in SA. The location, the rooms / hotel has been put together with thought and excellent attention to detail. It's funky, laid back but well organised and the breakfast is very good. Janet's poached eggs are the best we've ever had - no idea what she did, but no other hotel breakfast eggs came close!!!
All of the staff - Donald, Christian, Tendai and Janet (as well as some others who I can't remember the name off - sorry) are all well trained, efficient yet really warm personable. We'll be back when next in CT!!

For a small hotel it is first class.It is very modern and has a very clean, bright appearance. We did not book a room with a balcony but the one we had we could not fault. The bed was large and was so comfortable. It had the biggest shower we have ever had ! All the staff were so nice and helpful. The manager, Donald, and Tendai gave us a lot of tips and advice on restaurants, what to see etc and nothing was too much trouble for them. The breakfasts were excellent and were freshly cooked for every guest. The location was ideal for my wife and I. It is in a quiet, mainly residential area a couple of streets back from the main road so you don't hear any noise in your room. It is about a 20/25 minute walk to the Victoria & Albert area on the front which we knew when we booked but we didn't mind at all because we like to walk. In the evenings we ate at restaurants Donald recommended down on the main road which were only about a 5/10 minute walk and the restaurants there are even less expensive than the V & A but still excellent quality. We walked back to the hotel each night with no problems at all. The restaurant prices everywhere we visited for food and wine are incredibly good value. They are so much cheaper than the U.K. and the quality is excellent. This was our first visit to Capetown and to South Africa and we had an absolutely wonderful holiday - an unforgettable experience ! Hopefully we will be back in Capetown sometime and if so we will definitely stay here again.

Web page 100% correct..... excellent small hotel. A little difficult to find if driving a hire car..... note don't take a big car as the secure car park is small and houses 8 vehicles. tight turns to get into the car park..... however once your car is locked up lovely surroundings.... The moring staff are the best!!!! Especially respectful... Breakfasts freshly made. 5 min drive from V & A. 4 minute walk from Buzeby's Grill - the best steak in CT!!!!!

Room Tip: for seaviews - read the web page carefully
