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

Stayed here on business again. Literally a comfortable 5 minutes walk from ICC. Unlike most self catering hotels, the apartment is spacious and has a full kitchen. Only thing I found this time around is the tiles in the shower were filthy but after reporting to reception it was cleaned. the floor in the bathroom was also a bit dirty,... More

Very lucky to find this hotel on the internet. Our first taxi couldn't find the hotel, this was entirely his fault as we only had this problem with one other taxi. It would be worth having a map or directions available. We were met at Reception by Jessica who proved to be extremely knowledgeable, very helpful and courteous. She couldn't... More

Our first trip to Cape Town and indeed South Africa, so we needed a good impression. After a bit of a struggle to find the way into hotel - make sure you get directions, all was good. Parking is underground but limited and charged. Reception very helpful. Room good size and comfortable. Bit of a strange affair with no door... More

The outside of the hotel did not give it credit.Our room turned out to be an apartment, it was fantastic, so spacious and well tended every day. The staff was so helpful to us as we had trips and connections to sort out. 'Can't praise it highly enough!!!

I found this hotel on one of the travel websites and was hooked based off of the reviews i read and the relatively good price. Some things to mention at the outset: Wifi isn't free and isn't good either. I got a good price for the room so I factored the wifi price of $7 a day in. But for... More

We blindly booked this place over the net & it turned out to be excellent accommodation & exceptional value. It is located right on the edge of the SAFE AREA between the Waterfront dining & shopping area & the city centre. You can walk to everywhere within 10 minutes, the local shopping zone in the city & the dining &... More
