I recently stayed at Circa and was pleasantly surprised. Even though situated on a quiet street (use Google maps as a tad tricky) it's in the heart of the CBD, close to the Convention Centre, Waterfront and Greenpoint (which leads to Clifton and Camps Bay). Check in was easy. The apartment is very spacious and modern, and exceeded my expectations... More

Fantastic central location that is accessible to other nearby central/touristy areas. Extremely friendly and accommodating staff that is always eager to make your stay perfect and enjoyable. The space in our apartment was wonderful for the kids and family. I was in a luxury superior apartment with balcony. I enjoyed the space, quietness, cleanliness and comfort. The cleaning was great.... More

I stayed for almost two weeks in one of the apartments on the top floor. The apartment was very spacious, with a big bathroom, a nice kitchen etc etc. I could see Table Mountain from the balcony - always pretty to look at - even when you have to lift your eye away from the rather ugly backsides of some...

I got to know of the Circa luxury apartments through a recommendation. They are first class in terms of accommodation facilities, and most specifically for the very generous space. Each unit consists of a fully equipped kitchen (with a refrigerator, microwave oven, cooker, dishwasher, etc.); living room (with TV, air-conditioning and sofas); bath and a separate shower room; the bedroom...

The location is very convenient to the convention center and business district. Many stores and resturaunts (including fast food) in the area. Rooms are large with full kitchens and small grocery stores are located near by. Internet is fast (but costs about $7 a day if you use it in your room). Buffet breakfast very good - wide variety and... More

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
