My husband and I checked into Circa for our 1st wedding anniversary trip in October for about 5 days. Location: the location is good, central. The waterfront is about a 5-10 minute cab ride. There are restaurants in walking distance which were delicious. Hotel: They have renovated the main entrance area giving it a more modern feel, when in actuality...

This hotel is tucked away in a nice section of Cape Town that allows for easy access to many sites in the central business district. The building's interior is in very good shape & kept very tidy. The room was very spacious & modern styled. It is well worth the cost of the room. I only had one small issue...

Very spacious apartment. 5 minute walk to the Cape Town International Convention Centre. Great barman. Most staff were friendly and helpful. Good breakfast. I felt unsafe walking after dark, and as recommended by reception staff I always took a cab at night. Even so, the hotel entrance is in a pedestrian mall, so there is a short dimly lit walk...

Rooms are good size at least 55sq which is much better than most hotels. No TV in bedroom. Large beds very comfy and bathroom had bath and separate shower. Shower has gel and shampoo but bath had no toiletries so take your own. You have the benefit of a bedroom and lounge which has a couch, table and TV and...

The hotel is extremely well situated of business trips to the inner city and CTICC. It is well maintained and very clean and house keeping does a good job. The breakfast is nice and you can fill up quite nicely for the day. Overall I will stay again. The only issue is that there are so many beggars in the...

You will be woken up each morning with the sounds of loud chanting in the building complex. They start from around 06:00. Go ahead and see for yourself. Not proper at all. It's also not safe as walking at night attracts a lot of nearby beggars to the hotel and mugging has been known to happen.

I recently worked on a conference at the CTICC and stayed at the Circa for the duration of my time in Cape Town. The hotel is an all-apartment establishment and my apartment was large enough to hold a fair-sized dinner party (which I didn't do). The apartment was spotlessly clean. From the fully equipped kitchen to the oversized bathroom, everything...

Hotel needs a refurbish, reception staff are rude. Parking costs should be included in the room costs, otherwise where else am I going to park? The Breakfast included is good though. And overall I had a good experience but doesn't qualify for 4 stars !

Circa Hotel has got it all. A great downtown location, 4 room apartment, free breakfast, friendly staff. and all for the price of an average hotel room. This is one hotel you should book. I was checking out of a backpackers and found Circa's special on the Internet. For the price I paid I expected an average hotel room and...
