Our room at the Circa was large, well equipped and comfortable. It was good to have the kitchen area, with fridge/freezer, etc., and the sitting room and separate bedroom. The location of the hotel is very central, within walking distance of the vibrant V&A Waterfront, and of several city squares, and a variety of shopping opportunities. The staff made us...

The Circa is more a family hotel as it offers large apartments for an affordable price. However for families it is located too far from the water front or from the CBD to reach it by walking. But Taxis are cheap so it is no reason to disregard it because of this. If scientists attend a congress at cticc and...

Great apt hotel. Sashka on reception was extremely helpful and all her suggestions of places, bases, restaurants to visit were very very good indeed. A great place to start our travels of this wonderful place. Breakfast was just ok and the dinner restaurant portions were tiny.

I've stayed at the Circa a number of times now, each time in a different room, and it never fails to impress. Our company works closely with them as we have an office around the corner, so registration is a breeze. The reception staff always have a friendly greeting for the arriving traveller. The rooms, even the "small" ones, are...

We got this place for one night to hang out and party. The room was almost 1000 s.f. Fantastic with a full kitchen, two baths, huge master with ensuite and wrap around balcony. A great place to hang out in a good location on the square! The vibe is non existent, so bring your own! lol. But great value, and...

I was looking for something near the convention center and found this place on Google. First impression was that this hotel looked new and was close/walking distance to the convention center. Once I got to the hotel via taxi, the driver could not drop me off in front of the hotel. Unfortunately the hotel entrance faces a plaza so the...

I enjoyed staying at the Circa Hotel very much. The rooms are actually spacious apartments. My apartment had a full kitchen with a granite bar and Bosch appliances, a living room with wall-mounted flat screen, a bedroom with king-sized bed and a bathroom with double sinks and separate bathtub and shower. There was also a wrap-around balcony. Everything was very...
