Great room, location and service! PHENOMENAL staff!!!

Great room, wonderful service. Breakfast was everything you needed to start the day!

Great stay. Great room. Great food. Our rate included wi-fi and breakfast for 2 daily. Breakfast was delicious, and the staff learned our coffee/tea preferences after the first day. Was really nice. Uber from hotel to the waterfront was less than $4 USD. Didn't walk around at night, but seemed to be in a good shopping area.

I had a great time in Cape Town & really enjoyed my stay at the Taj! I arrived in Cape Town after spending 3 days in Johannesburg, where I stayed in a suite in another excellent hotel. I was initially concerned that I would be in for a downgrade in stay, but the room at the Taj was very spacious, and provided a balcony which my previous room did not. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Housekeeping did a great job as did the doormen! The location of the hotel is great as it is within walking distance of many attractions. The staff at the Mint restaurant could have been more attentive, but some of it could have been cultural differences, which i've experienced in other countries as well. I realize us Americans can be impatient.. Thomas appeared to be in a supervisory position at the Mint, & he did a really good job. Overall it was a great stay and if I return to Cape Town, i'll definitely be staying at the Taj!

Nestled in the heart of Cape Town walking distance to the Company Gardens and malls and suave restaurants ,The Taj is the bee's knees.An old bank renovated to accentuate it's former glory it really does not fail to please.Excellent restaurants ,The Mint and the Bombay Brasserie run by expert chefs and of course the cosy Twanky's Bar where one can sink into it's comfy seats and into oblivion with their great cocktails. The room was spacious and tastefully furnished,with very little detail taken into account Most of all it was the absolutely amazing staff who made the stay so pleasant?Bravo Taj you did it again!

I've stayed at the Taj in Delhi, India and their impeccable service convinced me to try out their hotel in Taj Cape Town. I definitely was not disappointed. The service was great, breakfast was great, and room was great! It's definitely a big hotel with a lot of business travelers but the staff is very warm. The location is great to walk around the happening bars and restaurants on Long and Kloof Street.

Hotel amazing but staff need improvement. A few errors led to my tours not running as smoothly as I had hoped. They don't give you the full information. Also, I was put into an adjoining room and they refused to move me because they already had my money and told me they couldn't offer me a better room at that price.

Coming from a boutique smaller hotel, the Taj felt slightly less personal. That being said, the staff was always available, rooms large and great price for the location and amenities, so really had no complaints and would definitely stay here again!

We enjoyed a Saturday night in Cape Town and enjoyed everything the hotel had to offer

Historical building turn to became luxury hotel. Extremely kind and attentive staffs, nice and huge room with aromatic amenities, breakfast was superb,.

I visited this hotel on a recent business trip. I switched from the Proteia Hotel Fire and Ice because it was so terrible. What a contrast to the Taj! It was a fantastic stay with a great room and friendly staff. They delivered my laundry with a rose!! I highly recommend it.

great experience, and location is prerfect right next to st george mall

The rooms are spacious, clean, and have amazing bathrooms. The service was great and all this at a good price.

We arrived in Cape Town, and were first amazed at the natural beauty of the city and surrounds, and then by our hotel! The staff at the Taj were excellent, they were open, friendly and honest. The room itself was excellent, the view from our bathroom of Table Mountain was better than most other hotels! The Taj's location in the center of town is superb for exploring on foot, and allowed us to see the city from foot level. The concierge was excellent. The dinner recommendations and reservations were spot-on and superb. The complimentary shuttle in the Jaguar and Range Rover were a big hit as well! I will recommend this hotel to anyone who goes to Cape Town. This is the price you pay for luxury, and it proves you get what you pay for!
