I try to spend a few nights in CapeTown on my annual visits to the Cape winelands and for the last few trips I have stayed at The Taj. The service is first class and particulary friendly with genuine warmth rather than "automated corporate" while the rooms are as comfortable as any 5 star hotel I have stayed in around... More

I spent 5 days here in August this year. There was initially an issue with my booking, but the reception staff swiftly fixed this and updated us to a "Taj Club" room. And what a treat it was. The Taj Club provides you with a butler service, complimentary cocktail hours every afternoon and a room fit for a king. Also... More

I stayed at the Taj with a group of friends in December and all of us kept commenting how great the service was. I also loved the location, as we could walk to so many wonderful restaurants. The hotel's car service is a GREAT perk. The rooms are well-appointed and so comfortable! I highly recommend this property.

The Taj Cape Town is a regal experience, the ambience is great in the old reserve bank building, the spa deserves accolades as well as the swift concierge and check in. The hostess at breakfast knows her job!!! I found hospitality to be slow in responding when called from room and the lobby could be more efficient ito the menu... More

Better than the waterfront hotels, good public areas, large comfortable rooms and excellent bathrooms. A pleasant walk to the CTICC, though you do sometimes get hassled. It is still CT so dont expect W European or N American standards but it gets very, very close and is a pleasure to stay in. You do get quite a lot of visiting... More

After traveling 22 hours to reach Cape Town we thought we would splurge and stay at the Taj. We have done this in the past and have enjoyed ourselves, but we were pleasantly surprised by the attention to detail that takes place here. We arrived late and were greeted promptly and with a smile. We entered the room, which had... More

The Taj Cape Town is a beauty itself but what makes this a truly 5 star hotel is the staff. From the moment you arrive at the front door to the sad day you have to check out, the staff makes this one of the most enjoyable hotels I have ever stayed in. Everyone has a smile on their face... More

I recently stayed at the Taj Cape Town with my family for seven nights, and because of the comfort of the hotel and outstanding staff, this hotel quickly felt like home. From the moment we stepped foot into the Taj it was like the staff couldn't do enough to accommodate us. We are a family of 4 and were supposed... More

Just finished a 4 night stay at the Taj. What a terrific hotel for the price!!! I cannot say that we have stayed at a nicer hotel in the world for $200 a night. Although there are many other hotels in Cape Town that are supposed to be quite nice, it is hard to imagine getting a better place and... More
