This is my third review of this fabulous hotel. I will keep it brief: it now ranks high with the finest I visited. Highly recommended.

We stayed here for 10 nights on a recent trip. Centrally located with excellent staff it would be difficult to want more. The only reason I have not given it a 5 is a petty irritation about the complimentary shuttle bus which we were unable to access when we requested and some slight irritation with housekeeping not replenishing the coffee pot on at least 3 occasions. To be fair they did ask you to book the shuttle in advance. Booking in was quick and simple, we were asked to take a seat in the lounge and the concierge came to us. Our room was beautiful with wonderful views overlooking Table Mountain.
The food was good, breakfast was OK, not the best I have ever had and toast seemed to be problem.
Overall we had a wonderful stay, the staff are excellent and if I had the opportunity I would stay again with no hesitation

Room Tip: Stay up as high as you can to get amazing views

I always have mixed feelings about the Taj hotels - compared to the Oberoi hotels they some how come away 2nd place. There is no Oberoi in Cape Town but the Taj here still feels it can do more... I stayed 2 days and booked a club room. Airport pick up was smooth, the welcome a little rushed as I guess they had a convention going on. The rooms and facilities are excellent - nothing to fault at all. Breakfast at the Mint was good. Its situated in the center of town but the V&A area is a short drive away. The view of Table Mountain was rather obstructed by buildings as we were on the second floor but had a view of the cathedral which was good. There was absolutly no street noise - a fact very appriciated. Long street which is a good place to hang out during weekends is a short walk away. We had a butler dedicated to us who helped make our stay better but apart from him felt the rest of the staff could have done more, been more attentive. Satisfactory but can improve is my verdict.

We stayed at the Taj in October/November 2011 and definitely enjoyed it! The complimentary valet-parking is very helpful, when being in Capetown with a car. Especially the concierges were very friendly and helpful. The rooms are very nice with a great view and the location is right in the middle of the city bowl, so it is not far to either the waterfront, camps bay, the airport, table mountain, or the main road leading to the cape. Unfortunately, the hotel offers only 30min complimentary Internet for free which is only available every 24hrs. However, one can buy firther hours, if needed, if one is willing to pay the price for it. In total, we can recommend the hotel not only for business visitors, but also for travellers!

Stayed here for a week on business and found location very good for town with park opposite and market square close by for a stroll. Rooms are FAB...go for one high up and you'll see the mountain from your bath !! The comfiest and largest beds I have ever experienced. Food quality was superb even for the training course delegates during the day - no dried up sandwiches here !! Did not get to use SPA or sports facilities but did get to take a peek and they are quiet and high quality, Very attentive staff who are eager to please and sort out any problems or queries you may have.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on 14th floor or above - preferably corner room for peace and quiet and double aspect and great views.
