The options to pamper yourself are endless and besides the jiva spa, you also have the option to get special bath oils to indulge in... More

The Hotel is staffed by sufficient & experienced, well trained, very helpful people. The rooms are well appointed, quiet, immaculate, & large. Resturant service is excellent with an amazing array of food which is fresh, appealingly arranged, delicious. The Spa is something special from the quiet ambience & tea to the relaxing massage.

The staff was very helpful in making recommendations, giving directions and arranging events for us. The rooms were nice, very clean and larger than I expected. The hotel bar was a great place to unwind from... More

This hotel, in the city bowl, close that the St Georges church, is a very good choice, for many reasons. First, the building is very nice ( a former bank), indian style in the lobby with statues and flowers, candles in the evening, cosy chairs. A very efficient team, at the concierge, front desk especially. You have a complementary shuttle... More

Lovely hotel located in the heart of the city where everyone is walking around to stores and restaurants. Great valet service that gets you out of the crazy San Francisco traffic quickly. Staff was friendly and helpful. They even managed to get one of our rooms in a very quiet location despite the hotel being located in busy downtown.

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
