Happy face icon
We stayed two nights at the Taj Cape Town hotel. It is a “City” hotel. It was very comfortable and the room large and very clean. The hotel is in a good location, close to the Company Gardens and the Cape Town castle. It also sits in the shadow of Table Mountain; we had a wonderful view from our room window. The hotel is in the city, where you do get to experience the atmosphere of the Cape Town City life. The staff were extremely welcoming and helpful. We would stay at this hotel again and recommend this hotel to those looking for the Cape Town “City” experience Steve Smith

Happy face iconLiked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities
After staying at the Taj Hotels in India several years ago, I decided to book this for our trip. Not a bad hotel but certainly not a 4-5 star. Our room was on the smallish size. No minibar products but good coffee and tea service. No views. The good: Accommodating staff Great breakfast Wonderful restaurant Good bar with afternoon music Improvement areas: Staff training particularly in the restaurant. (Service was often slow) New key system- keys would not work Location is sketchy (we learned downtown Cape Town after dark is not walkable 🙁) The free walking tour is not to be missed. All in all, a three star hotel experience.
Stayed 3 nights in Jan 2020
