The hotel is beautiful and has excellent service. The thing that put it over the top for me was their individual guest care. I ended up getting very sick while in Capetown (not the hotel's fault, unrelated health problem) and they immediately got me an appointment with a private doctor and took me in the hotel's jaguar to the appointment....

We had another great stay at Taj, Cape Town! The hotel staff is friendly, the hotel is great and conveniently located in the middle of the CBD. One can reach anywhere in town quickly and easily via taxi or Uber.

Fantastic hotel located in the heart of Cape Town. I was lucky enough to have Table Mountain as my view from the room. This combined with great food, drinks and staff that make you feel at home. I will be back again

Nothing negative to say at all! Friendly staff (they actually seem happy to be working there), clean hotel, room layout was good, liked that we could open the window, liked turn down service in the evenings. The only very small things is that they provide a bottom sheet, but no top sheet, so you have to sleep with the comforter...

To say that I was dissapointed would be an understatement. After reading the great reviews, we expected an exceptional stay but were constantly dissapointed. First, the good.

Amazing hospitality and service. Much better than other five star hotels in South Africa in terms of the time it takes to respond to a customer's request. F&B offerings especially breakfast really good. Amazing rooms, very clean and overall a very good experience with this hotel.

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
