We booked at the Taj for one night as short getaway to relax! The room was clean and neat.... COVID regulations up to standard! The staff are super friendly and room service was a dream! Our room was mountain facing... with a perfect view of sunrise and sunset! I would recommend the taj hotel to all who want the glamorous experience of Cape Town!

Thank you very much to each and every staff member whom made our stay unforgettable! Mark, Lisa, Honest, Frank, Elton...just to name a few. Staff is well spoken, professional and friendly. Traveling during COVID is scary, but Taj Cape Town is well prepared. Rooms are clean, sanitized & sealed upon arrival for our protection and the hotel have automatic hand sanitizer stations installed throughout the building. Compliments to the Chef and staff at the Bombay Brasserie. You are definitely the best Restaurant in Cape Town. We ended our stay at the Jiva Spa - unbelievable value for money and by far the best massage I’ve ever had. We enjoyed every second. Definitely the highlight for 2020. Thanks for treating us like royals. We’ll be back very soon!

Always such a treat to stay in this beautiful, classic, warm, friendly and luxurious Hotel. Gorgeous, spacious room with magnificent mountain view. Nothing quite like drinking coffee in bed and watching the tablecloth come over the mountain. The staff are exceptional and the attention their attention to detail doesn't go unnoticed. We highly recommend a stay at The Taj. A real spoil and special treat.

Cape Town Central, South Africa1 contribution
it was an one-off surprising pampering night...The rooms are spacious with a vivid light coming from the huge window. We had a beautiful view of the Table Mountain and St George Cathedral. We were lucky enough to enjoy also a dinner at their restaurant: the Bombay Brasserie.. simply amazing. The hotel is iconic...it is easy to imagine its lobby when the hotel used to be the South African Reserve Bank. Taj was an amazing mix experience of heritage, amazing food e friendly stuff...we have been pampered and we loved it! we'll be back for sure.
