We organised our annual business meeting at the Taj. I have to admit the hotel was just simply faultless. The attention to guests and the meeting is second to none. Our stay was not only excellent, it was memorable. And there is no word to describe how comfortable the bed is!!

I am a frequent traveler and have stayed in the worlds finest properties and would rate the Taj Cape Town at the top. The attention to service is second to none, food was exceptional (especially breakfast and staff was over the top. I traveled with my family and we were treated like royalty and every staff addressed us by name.... More

I went to Cape Town for business and had the opportunity to spend one night at this hotel. I have to say it was AMAZING. The service was exceptional, the room was lovely and the hotel itself was great. I wish I could stay longer. We travel a lot and I have to say the service is remarkable and it... More

The Taj is located in Cape Town CBD within the parliamentary precinct. Parliament is right across the road as is the Anglican Church in a rather sorry state of repair (at least externally). South facing rooms from floor 6 have an amazing view of the mountain. Get one if you can. The staff were friendly and helpful. Facilities were modern... More

A Hotel no matter how many stars is only ever as good as the staff who work in it . TAJ Capetown can truly own it's 5 star rating not due to the sheet thread count or furniture and fittings, but due to the Genuine Warm Skilled and Competent Staff. I name every single one of you as exceptional professionals... More

Generally speaking, luxury hotels of the class of Taj are not the kinds of places in which my wife and I chose to stay when traveling. However, when venturing to more exotic locales in countries with which we have absolutely no experience, where the reputation of the city milieu is a little "edgier" than it generally is in American or...

On Friday I had my birthday party at the Twankey Bar with approximately 30 of my close friends. I organised the entire event over email and Ghowa and her team were great at helping me coordinate everything. I organised snack platters and the food was not only great but also very good value for money. They also had set us... More

The staff was helpful from the minute we arrived. Our room was lovely with huge views of the city and Table Mountain. The bed was comfortable. the room was dark when it was supposed to be dark. Floor to ceiling windows gave wonderful light during the day. The bar/lobby offered a variety of good, but inexpensive SA wines. Breakfast was... More

Frequenting Cape Town often, I have generally had my fill of city centre hotels. It isn't the hotel that lets them down, its the guests that stay there. Fortunally the Taj claims a better class of businessman / tourist and is a delightful hotel to stay in. From the welcome as you pull up outside the hotel, to the swift... More
