I had one night left in Cape Town, and I found this place on a whim. Only 8 guestrooms, and a nice little pool out back in a private courtyard. A great place to meet with a few friends for some drinks around the pool, a braii, and some banter. Rooms are small, but very well updated and well configured....

Hotel is lovely and rooms are spacious and clean. The rain shower was amazing and big and beds very comfortable. The pool was lovely to cool off in and as it's a small hotel and during the week we had it to ourselves. Outdoor jacuzzi was awesome.

The hotel is well kept, clean and comfortable and in a great location. It is quite quiet but that is mostly due to its size and number of occupants. The waiting staff and cleaners were great and very friendly. I think we were slightly duped by on a taxi fare ordered through the hotel reception, I investigated later from the...

Nestled in a neighborhood alley just off of the main street and close to the waterfront. The one 8 hotel was an awesome find. If you don't know what you're looking for, it'll be pretty easy to miss. You'll be looking for a "hotel" and instead end up at a villa. The hotel has 8 completely renovated rooms complete with...

I found this hotel located in a very pleasant area. The service was excellent and very friendly. The swimming pool was a little too small but the relaxing area was ample. If I go back to Cape Town I would stay there.
