The hotel is located very close to anything that you can think of that's fun. Long street, V&A, signal hill, Kloof street, etc are just minutes away by walk/car. The rooms are spacious and nicely furnished. The staff are courteous and have a very cheery temperament. They're very helpful with any questions you ask. The restaurant wasn't open when I... More

Conveniently located and a very spacious, clean and modern apartment. Perfect for a field office or longer stay. No separate toilet in the open bathroom, with no door between the bathroom and bedroom.

After walking around and having to ring the hotel we finally found the enterance which is actually on the square with no drive way, the recpetion was a dodgy bar with no real enterance, we checked in with a bad feeling in our stomachs about the dodgy looking hotel. We were on the top floor where once we got inside... More

I stayed at Circa on the Square Hotel in Cape Town in January 2014 and would recommend it to anybody without hesitation. It is luxurious and yet good value. The staff are very professional and at the same time appropriately helpful and friendly. The location is excellent for exploring central Cape Town by walking and very easy to explore all... More

From the beginning, very professional, helpful and courteous. The moment you step it delivers what it promises, luxury and stylish. Close to the popular long street and the waterfront as well as local markets.

Chosen because of proximity to Conference Centre (200m). Slightly hard to find as entrance is in pedestrian square - park opposite Virgin Active Gym to register. Good reception staff, parking easy, wifi daily cost (only one device). Huge apartment - large lounge, big kitchen with pantry, extra toilet, small study with desk, huge bedroom and nice bathroom (no door so... More

I recently stayed at this hotel for ten days while last in Cape Town and I can recommend it very highly. The rooms, which in truth are one bedroom flats with full kitchen facilities, are well appointed and well serviced. The cleanliness is immaculate. The front desk, manned 24/7, offers good and attentive service-all for under $100 US/night. There is... More

This is almost the simplest hotel I have seen. The room was large enough to move around, everything was working apart from the fridge giving a constant low-frequency humming noise. I had to switch it off during the night. Pen and note pad were absent. There were tea bags but the maid forgot to replace them when they were used.... More

As two couples on holiday, we booked two adjacent 'penthouses' at the exact same price months before our stay at the Circa. When we arrived, we were surprised to find that not only were the apartments on different floors - one was not on the top floor - but they were also very different sizes. This potentially disastrous issue was... More
