Taj Cape Town

Explore the city right from our doorstep…

Originally home to the South African Reserve Bank and Temple Chambers and, later, the Board of Executors (BoE), Taj Cape Town effortlessly combines the legacy of the old with the luxury of the new.

Located in the centre of the old city, it boasts a strong sense of place and is within walking distance to some of South Africa’s foremost landmarks and attractions and an eclectic array of shops, galleries and restaurants.

Spread across two heritage buildings, all 176 rooms have spectacular city views or overlook the iconic Table Mountain.

Our Taj Club Rooms and Suites offer all the benefits of the executive Club Lounge like butler service, evening canapés and private breakfast, while the One and Two Bedroom Suites are perfect for the discerning traveller or for families.

We offer an array of dining experiences, from Afternoon Tea in The Lobby Lounge to Bombay Brasserie, our fine dining Indian specialty restaurant, and Mint Restaurant for relaxed all-day dining. The Twankey Bar specialises in handcrafted prohibition-era cocktails and delicious tapas-styled dishes.

Rejuvenate your senses at our Jiva Grande Spa, the first of its kind in Africa. Indulge in unique and authentic treatments based on the ancient wisdom of the Indian philosophy of wellness or spend time at the fitness centre and heated indoor pool.

Save Water and Secure Your Future

Cape Town is situated in a water-scarce region and recently experienced severe drought conditions. After much hoped for winter rains, our dam levels have risen to 76% capacity, in comparison to last year’s figure of 37%. As of 1 December 2018,water restrictions have been lowered from Level 5 to Level 3. In order to secure our futures, we must remember that saving water is not just a Cape Town issue, it is a global issue. Taj Cape Town is fully committed to doing what it can and so urges Capetonians and visitors to our beautiful city to be mindful and to implement water-saving measures where possible.

Check if the guests are non smokers before allocation of room!
The first suite we were allocated opened onto a courtyard with no view, but the worst and frankly offensive, was that it was a SMOKING ROOM for non smokers!!!! The smell almost knocked me off my feet! Why don’t you ask a guest if they want a smoking room or not? How ridiculous. I actually cannot comprehend that any hotel still has smoking rooms?! It wasted our time when we refused to stay in that room, and another room had to be located. The second room was on a different floor to our daughter which was then inconvenient. Again, no view which was absolutely and deeply disappointing. We understand that the hotel was 85% full on that night so there was nothing that could be changed. The suite itself was beautifully furnished, no complaints about that. Very comfortable bed and a lovely bathroom. Huge lounge which we enjoyed. The staff were marvelous, Papy, Katti, Innocent at check in and the housekeeping manageress also lovely. Our birthday celebration for our daughters 21st was handled so nicely and warmly, we were absolutely thrilled. Papy was so warmly friendly and assisted us so well in the planning and preparation for the surprise for our daughter, it went off perfectly. We are so grateful. The valet parking was superb and quick and professional. The staff at the front entrance are attentive and alert and professional. They work hard. The executive lounge needs to be renovated. It’s too small and lacks personality. It’s location is not great and the canapés provided at Happy Hour are disappointing. The staff there were attentive and friendly. The executive lounges in the Hilton chain are far nicer with much better choices of snacks.
