Copied from review sent to Hotel Manager: We had been planning this trip to San Fran for months and picked the Taj out in June due to the ease of the rental car service with your concierge desk. We spoke with Leo in June who said to call back about two weeks before our trip to reserve a rental car.... More

We traveled with a family of four.. We chose a two bedroom suite. The extra space is nice. The breakfast is nice, something for every taste. The central location is perfect for our first trip to Cape Town. However, for a five star rating, sometimes they are more of a four star. Sure wish that we didn't have to re-key... More

I travelled for work and was lucky to be accommodated at The Taj. It was an all round delightful experience and food. The Reception desk staff are excellent - friendly, efficient and helpful. The location is convenient and the visible security personnel in the city centre was nerve-settling. The views were breathtaking and it was just wonderful to stay there.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. As soon as you enter the lobby you are greeted with a glass of champagne or orange juice, staff make you feel very welcome room beautiful and food delicious. A top class hotel!!!

The first person we saw was Dan (Bell Man). He was SO welcoming. Thank you Dan. I see you when I talk about the Hotel. Even though we received a Gift Certificat through Auberge du Soleil as a Christmas gift , it would have been nice to have breakfast included. (Continental). Otherwise, perfect location in town. Hotel is beautiful. Thank... More

The Taj will meet every expectation you may have of a top rate hotel and quality stay. I highly recommend this to be your primary destination during your travel to South Africa. It is easy to get draw into the comfort of the amenities and blow away by the few of Table Mountain.

This is an amazing hotel to stay at. Not only is it very beautiful inside, but the service from all the staff is excellent. I would stay here everytime I'm in Cape Town. Just one bad point, the coffee. I didn't like the coffee. Coffee in the room, and coffee in restaurant for breakfast was not my taste. I would... More

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
