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

My wife and I stayed five nights during October 2014. The hotel is located in the lower city centre, approximately 20 minutes' walk from the waterfront which is Cape Town's main tourist precinct (and probably a better, if more expensive, place to stay). Other reviews have said that the walk is "safe". I guess that's a matter of opinion but... More

My wife and I stayed for 10 nights and thought it was fantastic value for money. We had a penthouse suit on the 7th floor which was spacious and light with quality kitchen ( all Bosch appliances ) and designer furniture, a true home from home which was serviced daily. I have read other reviews saying there was no door... More

My wife and I spent 11 days at the Circa on the Square and although there are a lot of plus points, such as spacious room, good location and contemporary decor, there are a number of negative points to be highlighted. Firstly, after our first night we notified the reception staff of a dubious stain (looked like blood) on our... More

This is one of the only hotels I've visited in the past few years where pretty much everything was flawless. Clean, spacious, good breakfast, cooking place, friendly staff, perfect location next to the international conference centre and to the convenient, low cost myciti bus to the airport (civic centre station is a stroll away). Got fantastic value for money from... More

Spacious, clean high quality apartment with everything you need for self catering and within easy walk to CTICC. Good value and highly recommend for business or holiday. Take a higher floor apartment for balcony and view.
