It was absolutely remarkable: the food was divine, service was attentive and he quality was pristine. I loved staying here and want to do it all over again. I actually stayed their twice overall. It is nice and central and allows you to walk into central town to enjoy the culture. There are also staff which show you around and tell you how to be safe whilst being in cape town which is understandable considering the area. And the menu for the mint advert is exceptional - I had the spinach and ricotta ravioli 4 times and i strongly recommend it!!!

We moved to the Taj after the place we had booked had no electricity or air conditioning--in the summer. The Taj was the perfect solution! The room was fantastic, the bathroom even more so, the food wonderful (the breakfast buffet was the best we had ever had!), and the service impeccable. This is the jewel of Cape Town hotels, and we will definitiely be going back!

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
