Stayed at the One8 hotel for 6 nights. Lovely friendly quiet hotel, very welcoming staff especially Donald and Tate.
First time in Cape Town and the hotel arranged an airport transfer which took around 30 mins.
We had a twin room, reasonably spacious with tea and coffee making facilities. Large bathroom with bath & shower, however because of the water shortage bath not used.
Room was spotless and beds very comfortable.
The breakfast was amazing , lots of variety with fresh fruit, cereal etc and lots of cooked options if you wanted.
There is a small pool however we didn’t use
V&A waterfront about 25 mins walk away and Woolworths ( M&S equivalent about 10mins away)
Residential location so very quiet but used Uber to get around and Citysightseeing bus stops about 10-15 mins walk away.
Great base away from the hustle and bustle but easy enough to get around.
Would definitely stay again

Room Tip: Room 8 facing car park no view

We stayed here for 5 nights. Because of the water crisis the pool was closed and we needed to minimize our use of water.
The people are very friendly and helpful. The hotel is modern and offers good quality materials, a fine breakfast, bar service, light meals and a closed parking space. Situated between city bowl, Waterfront and the beaches, with a number of restaurants on walking distance.
It was a good choice!

Dear Frans,

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us and we are thrilled that you had a very good stay and that you found all to be satisfactory.

Although we are doing our very best to save as much water as we can including covering the pool it is still however very usable and would have been opened for you to use should you have requested. The cover on top allows us to slow down evaporation and hence save more water.

We look forward to welcoming you back to The One 8 Hotel soon.

Donald

We stayed in one 8 hotel a couple of days after arriving in Cape Town. It’s a nice and rather small hotel with only 9 rooms. We stayed in the small (but also cheaper) room number 9 which was cute and nicely furnished. The staff was extremely helpful and nice! I personally liked the poolside a lot.

Also, the hotel is located in a rather quiet neighborhood. V&A waterfront is only 2 km away. I recommend to go with the taxi company booked by the hotel - it was much cheaper than others.

Stayed: February 2018
