          We loved the big door when entering the hotel suite, it looked homey and inviting. I like the kitchen with all the necessities. The room was large (we had the 1 bedroom room) and there was enought space to put your clothes. I liked the bath and shower, it was big enought to fit two people. Although we have been married for 20 odd years, me and my husband still has romance in our marriage.

          The bathroom and bedroom was one, I would have liked it to be seperate, especially the toilet. Even if there is just a glass wall between the bedroom and the bathroom.

          excellent location, well-equipped appartment, service-minded staff

        • Older travelers

          The rooms were very spacious- especially the penthouse that we had. Staff were obliging when we had to change rooms due to noise problems.

          Found it frustrating that no kitchen cloth, tea towel or liquid available even when requested.Also thought maybe some salt and pepper could be in room as it is a cooking facility. Do not accept the rooms near the water tank side - very very noisy all night. Had to change rooms.

        • Couple
          8.8

          Staff very helpful & most accomodating especiall Grant. We asked to change the apartment & they were more than willing although we decided to stay with the open plan bathroom;-). Very roomy, spacious throughout. Shops close by aswell as ATMs most handy. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Recvommend to all.

          Needed a restaurant that was open at all times & not closed for holidays etc. Internet needs to be free as is tha case elsewhere. Parking spaces size & access needs to improve, near impossible to get in & out of building due to limited access size. Also views from building not great but it does seem to be development at the edge of town with office blocks etc.

        • Single
          8.8

          The spacious rooms are extremely comfortable, the bathroom was also bright, large and very clean. Loved having a balcony and lots of glass looking out onto the city. Staff was very gracious and helpful.

          My only complaint would be the noise from street construction which went on very late into the night.. not much the hotel can do about that however..

        • Group of friends
          9.6

          It's quite reasonably priced and strategically situated, near CTICC where most events are held. You do not even need a car to get there, nor do you need it for getting to the VA Waterfront.

          Much as I loved staying there, I disliked the fact that there's a serious shortage of mirrors in the room. I hope when I go back for a visit, there'll at least be one full length somewhere in the room.

        • Older travelers
          9.2

          This is not the first time i have stayed at Circa, i love the fact that it is small and quiet, very descent and the rooms have that warmth - its a home away from home! Keep up the good standard!

          Well the check in time is a bit late, and the fact that there is now a restaurant but there are no breakfast options, it would be nice to have just breakfast, more especialy for the business people.

        • Couple
          6.6

          Spacious appartement with high standard interior. Parking very good plenty of small services (laundry service, bank, supermarkets, fitness, all sorts of restaurants etc) in 3-5 minutes walking distance

          cleanliness was insufficient. kitchen has very limited amounts pot, pans, utensils etc, iso for real cooking one needs to buy or bring stuff.

        • Group of friends
          10.0

          Proximity to city and the accommodation. It was very comfortable and spacious.

          Parking downstairs is very hard to drive in and out.

        • Group of friends
          8.8

          The space in the rooms plus they are well appointed with all appliances to make my stay comfortable.

        • Couple
          6.2

          The location is brilliant and the room is so spacious.......

          I found conckroaches in the room. The glasses were dirtly, I saw lipstick stains on the glass.The pedestals in the room were so dusty...Shockingly dusty if these rooms are cleaned regularly..then again maybe not.The worst was the parking, no remotes available so I had to call the receptionist to open each time I left the room...For the reasons above I will be deterred from booking at circa again.thanx Nalini

          Hotel staff was friendly, helpful and available at all time! Location of hotel is great, so easy to access Green Market and get your African souvenirs; Longs street is where everything is happening, especially at night and just few min away (lots of urban clubs with some great music, food, ambient). As well Waterfront is just a few min drive away. The comfort of the room was excellent as well as the size, cleanliness and absence of noise! I highly recommend this hotel as a choice if u decide to stay in Cape Town! Getting around is so easy!

          My apartment could accommodate 4 persons, modern, fully furnished and with a dishwasher. It's location is near to the Civic Centre and hence within walking distance from the MyCiti airport shuttle bus stop. We arrived at around 0900hrs and surprisingly our room was ready for us to check-in. We had problem with the toilet but was quickly rectified. It's location was also near to the Waterfront with 10 - 20 minutes walking. It's vicinity to the CTICC made it easier for us to retire from the 3rd stop of the hop-on, hop-off Red Bus. There was also a halaal restaurant (Mariam) nearby but unfortunately it close early and on weekend. Within walking distance also there was the "Food Lover Market".

          It's away from the city centre and could not find any convenience shop nearby. The toilet in the bedroom had no doors except the shower cubicle.

        • Family with children
          8.8

          Privacy, Easy smooth booking, check-in/out. Centrally located. The rooms are modern and clean

          Lack of basic kitchen items such as a dishcloth, salt & pepper & dish washing liquid.

        • Group of friends
          6.6

          Location, the size of the room and lounge room

          Problems with wireless seemed never ending. Little things like salt n pepper, some dishwashing liquid should be provided. If you stay for a night or two, is it worth going outside looking for some salt? I know it's cheap but I didn't have the time.
