Taj Cape Town brings five star luxury to the heart of Cape Town

Taj Cape TownThe Taj Cape Town has been called the city’s oldest new hotel because of the two historic buildings it occupies, but its location in the heart of the city is also what sets it apart.  It is housed in the Board of Executors (1896) and the original South African Reserve Bank (1932) buildings. And now seventeen new storeys have been added, offering panoramic views of the city and Table Mountain. The 177-room hotel is set in a precinct steeped in history, from the neighbouring Slave Lodge to St. George’s Cathedral, where Nobel Laureate Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu stood against apartheid. The heart of Cape Town with its art, culture, cuisine and entertainment is on the doorstep. If you really want to splurge, go for the top floor where you’ll find a two-bedroom, split-level Presidential Suite with its own massage and steam rooms, fully equipped kitchen, office, gym and an expansive top-floor deck for outdoor entertainment.
