One night at One8

Pros: Comfortable bed, bathroom and nice outdoor eating area.
Cons: Get WIFI working. Fix problems as soon as known.
Location: We didn't do anything nearby. We tried walking into town from the hotel but the Main Rd is very busy and we ended up catching a taxi.
The sign outside was missing, it had broken completely off. The door to street was secure. Staff were friendly. There is no lift so bags must be carried up staircase. The wifi didn't work in the room, we needed it to make plans with our friends and keep in touch with family in New Zealand so that was a problem. We asked about it but it wasn't resolved during out time there. We only stayed one night. The safe in room was locked so we couldn't use it, that wasn't resolved during our time. The bathroom and bed were very comfortable. There is no separate toilet. The breakfast was well laid out and included cook breakfast in needed. There are nice fish tanks.

Dear Anonymous, Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us. The sign on our doors was indeed knocked by a delivery truck which had illegally mounted the kerb and we are doing our very best to have it replaced and put back up on the wall as soon as possible but obviously we guided by the sign people on how fast they can do the job. Regarding your safe we would have been happy to immediately unlock it for you had you notified us. We are sorry that you had problems with the WIFI but we get throttled during specific peak traffic times on a daily basis when any of our guests is downloading huge files as Cape Town WIFI follows the Fair User Policy guidelines and our WIFI is, should all our guests browse responsibly, accessible in all our guest rooms. Once again we thank you for your review and we hope you will stay with us again.
