HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 24 February 2017

What a great place, we stayed here for five nights, we were upgraded to a beautiful suite on arrival, which helps. The staff here are brilliant. Very helpful Concierge team. Talk to them and they will help you and give you advice. A lovely service that the hotel operates is using the beautiful Jag XJ to take you to restaurants...

I was booked into the Taj due to a Conference in Cape Town. The rooms are spacious very clean. The attention to detail and customer service is second to none. This Hotel is a bit pricy but it is well worth it.

The staff at the Taj were fantastic and helped make our stay memorable. The hotel is conveniently located in the downtown area. The buffet breakfast was plentiful with so many options. I would recommend this hotel for anyone staying in Cape town.

Excellent location, great breakfast; beautiful and scenic views from hotel room!!! Particularly, the Bombay Brassierrie (Indian Restaurant) is a must do!!! Highly recommended! The location of hotel is close to the popular and touristy Victoria & Alfred Waterfront with lots of good restaurants and shops, and it is easily accessible to other locations within and around Cape 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
