We were upgraded to a room with an unbelievable view of the mountain. What a beautiful room and such a treat! Thank you very much for a lovely stay. Also the staff were all very friendly and willing to assist. We had a short, but great stay

This is the first time I stayed in a Taj and it was a pleasant experience. Check-in was quick, the rooms are impressive, and our mountain view is to die for. If anyone is familiar with the Dusit Thani chains of hotel I must say this is very reminiscent of it for me. The staff are very helpful, and they... More

This was a really nice hotel, very good location, and great accommodating staff. The morning breakfast was delicious, so were our other meals at Mint Restaurant. My husband called in ahead to have a surprise for me to include a drink, flowers, etc which was never delivered but had been paid for. That was disappointing. The hotel car was convenient... More

We travelled to Cape Town at the beginning of February for an event and stayed at the Taj in Wale Street. It is a lovely hotel as you would expect from this group of hotels and guests experience the same seamless service as in their hotels in India. The linen on the beds is absolutely sumptuous and the house keeping... More

i have had the luxury of staying here on a number of occasions. I find the level of service impeccable. Once they get to know you they remember the small things like how you take your coffee etc…Great rooms ask for one with a view of table mountain and a balcony. The wake up call service is unbelievable they will... More

Stayed three nights and our experience was absolutely wonderful. We were on the 17th floor and the room and view were fantastic. Service was great and breakfasts were overwhelming. The hotels location is probably the best in Cape Town. Easy wlking distances to everything.

Heading to Cape Town? Head for the Taj Hotel located at the foot of the Company Garden and in the heart of the cultural district. It is the best hotel you have never heard of when looking for places to stay in Cape Town! The lobby area was formerly a bank; a beautiful and unique space. Our bedroom + sitting... More

We stayed here for a quick visit to Cape Town and enjoyed its central location, which allowed us to walk to several nearby stops and sites quite easily. Obviously other places would be more convenient for the beach, or outdoors, as compared with a city centre site. Valet parking was efficient and well handled, as there is no parking by... More

My dad stays with Taj Hotels if there's one in the city he's visiting, that's where I got my recommendation from. Concierge was helpful with all the little silly questions we had, and they were patient with us too. Liked the Freedom walk that was offered, learnt a great deal about Cape Town and it's history! Location was great! Staff... More

My friend and I decided to treat our mothers to afternoon/high tea at your hotel, and found the experience most disappointing. The food was mediocre at best, and left much to be desired. The price for your high tea is more than The Mount Nelson, so I expected a higher standard of foodstuffs to be on offer at the buffet... More
