Reception staff were quite disinterested. First comment was its Sunday our Bar and Food is closed and its 80 a day for parking. Not exactly a great way to start. Room was OK but only for one night. No views uncomfortable furniture. Mouldy shower. Icon apartments are a minutes walk away and far better for about the same price. Breakfast... More

The rooms themselves were very well equipped for self-catering with plenty of space, but the downside was that the windows faced straight into an office block and with no net curtains which meant keeping the curtains closed all day. The hotel is located in a business area, close to amenities, but after hours and over weekends is pretty deserted, so... More

Appreciated by its location - 10 minutes walk by the MyCiti Airport Bus Terminal and City Sightseeing CTICC station, right next to Burger King and a supermarket where you can get a Vodacom sim card for internet. Also with its nice breakfest, friendly staff and neat and tidy room. Definitely my first and future choice in Cape Town.

Quiet hotel situated in the CBD and not too far away from the party streets and the v&a waterfront. The breakfast spread was quite good and the manager on duty was really helpful and accommodating. Definitely recommend staying there if you arent looking for anything too expensive.

The hotel has big, big rooms with everything you want to cook, if you can. There's no free wifi at hotel and I think that is a problem, because of term luxury. We stayed at a room with smell cigar. The hotel doesnt have control of it!

I had a stay at Circa on the Square during my holiday in Cape town. The apartment was large and was equipped with the things you needed. It was also possible to make food, even though the equipment was not so good. The staff was kind and the breakfast was good, it was also possible to freshly made eggs and... More

- High Security Risk from Hotel Staff/ Manager. Not wanting to walk around with a lot of cash I decided to leave it in the Safe inside the bathroom cupboard. I left the room early in the morning and when I returned later that night the safe was open with its door ajar. It came as a huge shock but... More
