My husband and I stayed at the Taj Hotel in Cape Town for 3 nights. The room was very clean and well kept. The furnishings and bedding were new. The bathroom was spacious and very clean. We had asked for a room with a view but instead got a room at the back overlooking another building. We had a balcony...

We celebrated our 10 year anniversary at the Taj Hotel in Cape Town. Everything was perfect. The rooms are stunning and the service is excellent. We had champagne and chocolates waiting for us in our room. The staff were very polite and friendly. One of the staff at The Mint restaurant was extremely friendly and helpful. His name is Mike...

We arrived at the Taj, Cape Town to an effusive welcome. Grand old banking hall, high ceilinged and spacious, you feel very colonial and privileged. The room was on the second floor, home of the Club Lounge, with views to Table Mountain and the city, simply stunning. Excellent facilities, slightly dated decoration, but exactly right for a traditional, quality establishment....

Where has this hotel been all my life? Service is awesome, everyone is always trying to help you. Spa is just beyond comparison. Nice restaurants and great rooms. We usually stay at Ritz or Four Seasons and this hotel is better. Only negative item is their coffee in the restaurants isn't very good but there is a good coffee place...

Very much enjoyed the Taj in all respects. A bit pricey but worth it in location, service, quiet, comfort. Our party had adjoining rooms. Definitely would return. Although everything turned out fine, I would book directly with the Taj next time, not through a hotel booking service.

Loved this hotel. Very luxurious. It is very run, well kept and has a very hospitable staff. Top notch location close to all the museums, shopping and concert hall. Great restaurants nearby as well as in the hotel.

It's the Taj, so really, you know it's going to be a wonderful hotel. I was a bit worried that the hotel was located a bit far from the waterfront and tablemountain.

Amazing ambience with great service. We got a room on the 14th floor and the view was great! The breakfast is splendid and the concierge takes a lot of time to cater to your need so that you get a good tour. The rooms are also very luxurious. All in all a great combo 👍

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
