Amazing hospitality and service. Much better than other five star hotels in South Africa in terms of the time it takes to respond to a customer's request. F&B offerings especially breakfast really good. Amazing rooms, very clean and overall a very good experience with this hotel.

Service was excellent. Room was nice and comfortable, though not incredibly large. Location is fantastic. Lobby smells of fresh orchids all day, every day! Would definitely stay again and/or recommend to someone else.

We were at the Taj for 3 days in June 2016. The place looks small from the outside but once inside it is warm. The location is great close to the Slave Lodge, Parliament, Company's Gardens and St Georges Mall. The Waterfront is a 20 minute walk but there is a shuttle that takes you there and back and to...

Very pleasant business hotel in Cape Town. Great breakfasts. Pretty standard rooms (my room had a massive bath-tub in the middle that interrupted the flow a bit -- ) but still, a very pleasant place to stay.

Great location - excellent staff always helpful and willing to assist. We would certainly recommend this location for any couples wanting to explore Cape Town for a few days. The courtesy bus was a great facility to get you around the town.

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
