We value our clients opinion and take note of all comments which are reasonable and require our attention. Without disputing the right to express an opinion, we would like to take note that the public bus system is working quite well in Cape Town. Circa Hotel is located literally between two bus stops one of which is 80m away and...

Massive apartment. Biggest I have seen and very cheap considering. Bed is comfortable, furniture not quite as comfortable. TV was ok, with enough channels to get you through. Kitchen has everything you need although you must ask to get the cupboard that houses the utensils unlocked. Decent safe and great bathroom/ shower. The WIFI though is very poor. I go...

Our visit to Circa Hotel was unfortunately tarnished by the state of the shower in Room 106. Nothing a little steam clean and a revamp can't fix but I would recommend staying away from this room for the time being until they do so. On the whole, the hotel is acceptable. Breakfast is good and location is excellent.

I went for a conference at CTICC and this block of apartments is about a 3 minute walk so perfect location. The apartment itself is very spacious - handy that it comes with a kitchen so you can cook if you want. The bathroom is very nice and big and the bed is comfortable. There is also a tv (no...

Our room at the Circa was large, well equipped and comfortable. It was good to have the kitchen area, with fridge/freezer, etc., and the sitting room and separate bedroom. The location of the hotel is very central, within walking distance of the vibrant V&A Waterfront, and of several city squares, and a variety of shopping opportunities. The staff made us...

The Circa is more a family hotel as it offers large apartments for an affordable price. However for families it is located too far from the water front or from the CBD to reach it by walking. But Taxis are cheap so it is no reason to disregard it because of this. If scientists attend a congress at cticc and...

Great apt hotel. Sashka on reception was extremely helpful and all her suggestions of places, bases, restaurants to visit were very very good indeed. A great place to start our travels of this wonderful place. Breakfast was just ok and the dinner restaurant portions were tiny.

I've stayed at the Circa a number of times now, each time in a different room, and it never fails to impress. Our company works closely with them as we have an office around the corner, so registration is a breeze. The reception staff always have a friendly greeting for the arriving traveller. The rooms, even the "small" ones, are...

We got this place for one night to hang out and party. The room was almost 1000 s.f. Fantastic with a full kitchen, two baths, huge master with ensuite and wrap around balcony. A great place to hang out in a good location on the square! The vibe is non existent, so bring your own! lol. But great value, and...
