The Taj Hotel
The wonderful historic aspect of the Taj Cape Town hotel is reflected in the façade, embellished with bronze, and even more impressive interiors, with the hotel lounge in the old banking hall under a vaulted ceiling. Guests are accommodated in 176 well-appointed, exquisite rooms and suites, with all the mod cons, and a desk for business travelers. These are categorised as Heritage Rooms and Suites, Tower Rooms and Suites, The Presidential Suite and Taj Club. The Taj Cape Town hotel consists of eclectic variety of cuisine and culinary experiences include an Indian specialty restaurant, a relaxed all-day dining restaurant and a Champagne, Guinness and Seafood bar. State of the art facilities include a full Jiva Grande Spa, a fitness centre and an indoor heated lap pool.
- Take the complimentary city walking tour (departs Tuesday to Saturday at 10.30am) led by the hotel concierge, which takes in not only the city sights but its many restaurants, coffee shops, bars and shopping options close by.
- Book a Heritage room (floors 2-6) which are more atmospheric, and don’t cost any more than Tower rooms. The latter have more panoramic views but lower ceilings and bland aluminium window/door fittings. Mountain views, regardless of location, are a bit more expensive.
