The location is perfect situated in the heart of town. Our 1 bedroom suite was beautifully appointed but more importantly not only looked superb but was superbly comfortable. The bathroom was a dream. We had a marvellous view of Table Mountain. The breakfast was excellent could not fault the selection. However the main asset of this hotel is the staff,... More

We stayed in the Taj Cape Town for 5 nights in the first week of October 2014. The location of the hotel was perfect, the market area was nearby, walking distance. Our experience from day 1 was pretty good. The room met its standards, service was good and the staff were also very friendly. The best part according to me... More

Just returned from a trip to South Africa, staying in 4 different hotels throughout the visit, and beside from the game lodge near Kruger, which is a totally different and incomparable kind of accommodation, i must say that The Taj in Cape Town is one of the most superb experiences i have ever had from staying at a hotel.

After much deliberation between choosing a hotel at the waterfront and staying at the Taj, my family and I decided to go with the latter and we're so glad we did. The hotel itself is pure opulence with an extremely attentive staff and an overall luxurious feel. We got the standard room and even added a rollaway bed in there... More

lovely hotel in the centre of the town, close to the business sectors. Beautiful large rooms kept to a high standard. Super attentive staff who can't do enough for you. Not that cheap, but still good value for money. My only Small negative is that the Swimming pool is a slither so if this matters to you then be aware,... More

This is a Hotel. I couldn't find one fault. Absolutely Brilliant. Won't bother staying anywhere else when I next visit Cape Town. The rooms are spacious, great views and great bathrooms. Service is impeccable. And location couldn't get any better.

Everything about the Taj is sheer perfection. From the pick up at the airport in the incredibly suave Range Rover vogue, equipped with cold towels, sparkling and still water to the welcome at the hotel - you feel like a celebrity from the minute you step foot into the 'Taj world'. I was thoroughly impressed with the level of service... More

The room itself was perfect, the bed was wonderful, as were the pillows. The bathroom was fantastic and it was very quiet. Lovely dark curtains that blocked out the light and noise of the city. The breakfast, which was included in our room rate was one of the best we ever had. We also dined at the Bombay Brassiere in... More

Of all the global places I've visited, without a doubt the Taj Cape Town Hotel has been THE best experience. You could pay twice as much money, and not get the experience this hotel provides. Location is perfect for walking to many activities and restaurants. The staff goes above and beyond. I had a flat tire on my rental car... More

This was our second visit to the Taj. I'm not going to go into as much detail as my first review in 2013, but suffice to say that it was essentially faultless. Service was impeccable, from the doormen who greet you by name, the cleaners to the restaurant staff, the receptionists...everyone was extremely professional, efficient and friendly.
