Taj Cape Town is a luxury hotel set in the vibrant heart of Cape Town.

Occupying two historic buildings, it retains the architecture and many meticulously restored interior features of the original South African Reserve Bank and the old BoE building – formerly the Temple Chambers, built in 1890. Seventeen new storeys house suites, guestrooms and residences with magnificent views of the Mother City and the iconic Table Mountain.

Taj’s doors open to a precinct that includes the national and provincial parliaments, Government Avenue leading through the 350-year-old Company Gardens from St George’s Cathedral, the cosmopolitan crafts of St George’s Mall and Greenmarket Square and a diversity of culture, art, entertainment and cuisine.

Taj Cape Town's 176 exceptional rooms and suites offer an oasis-like retreat from the lively bustle of the city centre. The historic structure of Taj Cape Town is home to the exquisite Heritage Rooms and Suites, Tower Rooms and Suites, The Presidential Suite and the Taj Club.

The rooms combine old-world quality and modern amenities. As well as the gamut of facilities that guests would expect in a luxury hotel room such as a mini-bar, safe, voicemail and international plug sockets, standard features include high-speed wireless internet, an iPod docking station and charger, an internet-enabled television and a work station with a multi-media hub so laptops can be interfaced with the television.


The first floor of the BoE building, with its large sash windows looking out on St George’s Cathedral, the Company Gardens and the Provincial Legislature, houses the banqueting and meeting rooms.
