This is a nicely situated apartment. There is no view... You will be charged ZAR80 extra for parking which is a bit ridiculous seeing at the cost of the room is ZAR1400.00. The shower was moldy and the water pressure was low, so no good shower... The water was cold as well. Breakfast was cold and I really didn't enjoy... More

We stayed here for New Years for 7 nights and really enjoyed our stay. The room we had was modern and very spacious with a large kitchen, yet some of the furniture looked a bit tatty and had marks on them. The shower also needed a big clean as it had lots of deep stains in the grout. The breakfast... More

Recently spent 10 days at the Circa on the Square . My experience was all positive . The rooms are quite large with a decent sized kitchen,although we ate out every night. The breakfast that is provided is very good and the quality never varied over the time we spent there. The front desk staff were very helpful and were... More

The hotel is located on a pedestrian square, which makes it a quiet place. It is a 15 to 20-minute walk to the Waterfront and a 5-minute walk to Long st, which is a touristry street with plenty of restaurants. The room is actually an apartment, with: - a fully renovated and equipped kitchen - a family room - a... More

Perfectly located with great access to everything in Cape Town. The rooms are big and well equipped with everything you could imagine. The staff are just so wonderful and the breakfast is sublime with numerous delicacies and varieties of teas and coffees with numerous juices freshly squeezed before your eyes. I love the lobby with the lovely seats and beautiful... More

My fiancée and I stayed at the hotel for 4 nights. On arrival at the hotel I was disappointed as the hotel is surrounded by other larger buildings and there is absolutely no views from any room of beautiful Cape Town. The parking bays are too small and you will pay for everyday your car is parked at the hotel.... More

Nice and clean. The staff were super friendly, with service and directions as we needed help with getting to the Waterfront, which is... More

Overall the hotel is a good business hotel. Location is the key as it is located in DBD near the convention centre. Breakfast was limited and ok. Not exactly the first choice for families. It gets really quiet after dark. But was quite close to V&A waterfront (3 Kms). Down side : Car Parking not free. Wifi Internet also not... More
