My 6 nights stay at the Taj Cape Town can never be forgotten. I stayed in the Luxury room with city view, with a toilet I call "My Palace". I admired their professionalism, especially from Mike and his team in the Mint Restaurant, which made me never miss my breakfast buffet and dinner.The Spa, Gym, Business center was great too....

This is my second stay of 7 days at the taj within the past 3 months and the service in my opinion for the price paid is the best I have encountered. Sure you could pay 300 to 400 dollars a night and maybe get comparable service in cape town but if you want a hotel in the city within...

Really everything is fantastic--heritage rooms are close to street but no noise, super comfy, fantastic bathroom. Buffet bfast worth it and hotel staff uniformly amazing--really positive and welcoming, going out of their way to pro-actively find and propose solutions and alternatives when I had a question or challenge. First rate!

All of the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. We were, however, disappointed with the supposed "city view" our room was supposed to offer. We looked directly into another building. We also were not impressed with the size of the room. For $400-500+ a night, we expected better.

If you want to be taken care of, this is the place. These guys just keep thinking of new ways to make your stay easier, better, whatever. I particularly enjoyed the Wine Shop downstairs just off the Tea Room. It's not cheap but you get your money's worth.

After 2 1/2 weeks on safari, it was a REAL pleasure to check into the Taj. Reasonable by US standards, this hotel provided over the top service and amenities.

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
