Nice luxury hotel centrally located in the heart of Cape Town CBD. Wonderful views of Table Mountain and walking distance to many great restaurants. Staff is friendly and hotel is clean. With currency exchange rates favorable for US travelers, the value for the room is outstanding!

I've said it before - but it is the best, best food (gourmet Indian Resturant) service, staff and accommodation. I was tired on this trip and happy to use the hotel facilities and walk to the bar next door (part of the hotel) across the road to the very friendly Crypt Jazz club - literally across the road.

We recently stayed at The Taj Cape Town. What an amazing experience. The staff could not have been better. The rooms were spacious and the location was great. We opted for Taj Club Room, which included one-way transfers to/from the airport plus breakfast, afternoon cocktails and high tea. The breakfast buffet had a great variety of items as the option...

Unusually heavy traffic for Cape Town delayed us for our 4:30 Jiva spa booking and then the reception could not find our reservation. Not starting well for our anniversary celebration, we thought. But the spa was notified, the error (on their part) was acknowledged and while we luxuriated upstairs in their "Soma" couples treatment, complete with bath filled with rose... More

We stayed a week with our family in May. The service, location, value for money, and the hotel itself were outstanding and my husband as a former hotelier is very hard to please! We would recommend this hotel to anybody and we would definitely stay here if we were to visit Cape Town again. My husband generally dislikes buffets but... 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
