The location is great, it’s right downtown. It’s very convenient for food and transportation, but the area might not be very safe. Staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Breakfast is delicious. Overall good!

Right in the center of Capetown. Nice hotel with a touch of India. The rooms are clean and equipped with what you need. Very quiet at night especially knowing you right in the center. Certainly a good place to stay.

We stayed here in late January, for two nights and found very aspect of the hotel to be truly excellent. Staff members were outstanding in their effort to make our stay comfortable. It is what I would call a very traditional 5* hotel. It was not overly pricey and I would have no hesitation staying here again. Well done the Jaj

It was extremely disappointing to be charged the full rate for a cancellation due to the Covid-19 pandemic. I tried to contact them well before as soon as I found out my trip in March and April was cancelled but they had an out-of-office message up. This way of doing business during a global crisis shows a lack of a raft of qualities we look up to in human beings. Taj Cape Town's management does not display these qualities.

Best hotel in Cape Town! Service is sublime. Tower rooms are large and airy with added bonus of a balcony. Drinks and food at Bombay are superb. Staff are helpful and friendly. Nothing to complain about at all!
