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

We stayed at the Circa Hotel May 13th to 16th and again June 3rd to 8th,2015. This hotel is centrally located,one block over from Long Street,near the Capetown Convention centre and just a ten minute walk from the V & A Waterfront. Check-in was easy and first appearances of the lobby and bar area give you the impression that this... More

The cost for room service is R50 and a can of coke is R23! What nonsense! If you want to fetch your food you get it on a very hot plate and are expected to carry the food open for the world to see. Of course a chip or 2 fell and I was just looked at with no assistance.

Stayed here for 2 weeks. Location convenient for long street and waterfront. No view but we weren't spending a lot of time there. Apartment with modern decor but few things in need of the fix: leaky sink, leaky toilet, cracked board on the step to the bathroom. The annoying thing though was that a self catering apartment with all the... More

I stayed for a night, facilities and room are good. I was really put off when I checked in because they took an imprint of my credit card & wrote my CVV number down. They said it was for breakages and when I objected the receptionist became quite aggressive! Also charged me R80 for parking which was not disclosed when... More

We booked this place for 2 , but then had an added guest for a total of 3 people. the place was huge, so plenty of room really. The hotel charged us 300 extra rand a night ( quite excessive in my view) for the use of a rock hard hide a bed that was completely unusable. Our guest ended... More

Agree and confirm all that is said by zajhbfemme under topic of “Fantastic stay” recently about the apartment. (I did not have a car). However, I could not get many channels on the TV such as discovery, natgeo etc). Very quiet and No noise from the street even on the 1st floor. A telephone request was made to reception the... More
