The welcome was not one of thee friendliest, got a welcome letter written Mr! And having someoneelse 's letter inside ,and it's the second time this happened, kind off took me off.The concierge is one of the attractions, and they always friendly, just the changes that made the experience of staying there have bn removed,like breakfast in room dining covered as buffet.

Give hotels.com a wide berth.
Facility is wonderful, have stayed there many times. Please do not use Hotels.com, they have a habit of confirming hotels, taking your money, then telling you the hotel is full, and do not refund you!

Great stay, however do improve on check-in service
It is always wonderful to stay at The Taj. The service is superb. The only thing I didn't appreciate this time around is that when I checked in at 3h45pm, my room was still not ready! This is totally unacceptable for a 5-star hotel like that one!

My Taj Cape Town hotel experience
Enjoyed the extra touch of wine and "happy anniversary" gesture left in our room to celebrate. Room style and design were excellent, exactly a true reflection of what was presented on the hotel's website. However, service in general on most aspects can do with some improvement. Main door and evening bar services were however excellent.
