I stayed here with a colleague for 6 days on a business trip to attend a conference at the convention center. It was a convenient location, about a 2-3 minute walk from the convention center at a reasonable price (about $60-70/night). That was the USP, since most cities do not have a reasonably priced yet decent living options near convention... More

The apart-hotel is a fantastic city centre hotel. The rooms are spacious and luxurious. We stayed at Circa for one week and really enjoyed our stay. There was however no restaurant to use but they were busy refurbishing it. However there are loads of eateries in the city so its just a short walk to find some breakfast. The rooms... More

The flats are very spacious and beds are very comfortable. Kitchen modern and fully equipped. There are 2 bathrooms so the open plan bathroom isn't a problem whatsoever. Beautiful rain shower and big bath, 2... More

Plenty of space in the 1 bedroom apartment, the layout was great. The kitchen was good, great to be able to cook some good local produce and enjoy a bottle of wine. In walking distance to the V & A shopping, restaurant area. Walked there most days, no need for a taxi. The staff were friendly and helpful.

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.

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
