A great city hotel...Great location

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

Pure Perfection

Over the years we have tried many hotels in Cape Town, but this stands head and shoulders above all of them. For us, the question where to stay in Cape Town has been solved once and for all.
