Amazing stay, world class service. Fantastic location, truly return-worthy. They had an art gallery in the lobby with weekly wine tasting and showings, we ended up purchasing two pieces of art and the prices were incredibly reasonable. The art curator was very sweet and accommodating and the work was wrapped and sent to our room prior to our departure. We...

Stayed a the Taj for 8 nights and had a lovely time - started to feel like home. The staff were very helpful, almost tripping over themselves to hold doors, carry things or help with questions. The concierge guys were incredibly helpful, with local knowledge, taxis, or arranging Taj transport to locations in Cape Town. We had a room with...

Beautiful place to visit! We definitely want to go back! This is the most beautiful place on earth! We can't wait to go back again and possibly take our two children. We have shared our experience with several newlywed couples. Very lovely!

The magic of the Taj is your staff !!! Each and every member of your staff that we encountered from entering the lobby to saying goodbye at the end were brilliant.

Was told Butler Service was included but never saw anyone to assist in packing/unpacking or any other amenity. Was disappointed in the lack of attention to details. The location is great..away from the hustle and bustle...

The Taj is a real beauty. The rooms are spacious and luxurious. The dining room/ bar area is spectacular. I have stayed here on many occasions and have never been disappointed. Staff are helpful and welcoming. You can walk to the Houses of Parliament and many other tourist sites. There are some excellent restaurants in walking distance.

The Taj Cape Town was a magnificent experience. The staff was amazing at every level, from arrival to check in to concierge and wait staff. Bombay Brasserie is in the hotel and made for a great dinner while in town. It was easy to park my car, get a cab or walk to close by locations. Long and Bree street...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Taj Cape Town welcomes guests to the vibrant heart of the one of the world's most scenic and desirable cities, Cape Town. The hotel is a combination of rich history and elegant contemporary architectures. Originally home of the South African Reserve Bank and Temple Chambers and later the Board of Executors (BOE), it successfully combines the heritage of the old with the luxury of the new - a 100 years in history! This luxury hotel is perfectly located in the centre of historic Cape Town at the entrance of the famous pedestrian precinct, St George's Mall. It's prime location ensures a blend of fascinating history, exotic culture, soulful art, lively entertainment and delectable cuisine. - Within walking distance to most tourist attractions, monuments, museums, shopping, restaurants, markets and nightlife. Adding to this grand yet welcoming atmosphere are the two dining experiences, the Indian fine dine specialty restaurant, Bombay Brasserie and Mint, a relaxed all-day dining restaurant. Both are warm and welcoming and serve outstanding cuisine. Alongside this you'll find wonderful Champagne and tapas bar known as The Twankey Bar which is exceedingly popular with both locals and guests alike. Rooms are located in both the heritage buildings and the contemporary tower wing, but all continue to seamlessly merge history and modernity. Luxury Rooms have spectacular city or breathtaking mountain views overlooking the famous Table Mountain and the Taj Club Rooms and suites offer all the benefits of the executive Club Lounge including butler service, evening canapes, cocktails and private breakfast. One and Two Bedroom Suites are also available, perfect for the discerning traveller or for families. The award winning Jiva Grande Spa is one of its kind in Africa with unique and authentic wellness treatments and experiences. Also on offer is complimentary use of all wet areas, heated pool, and a high tech gymnasium. ... more   less
