Amongst street-side cafés and museums-a-plenty, Taj Cape Town crowns heritage charm with a glistening, contemporary top hat.

The Tata Suite has an upstairs glasshouse (with small gym) and a private rooftop terrace for year-round enjoyment.
A hotel of two disciplines, Taj Cape Town is rooted in a historic structure, but expands out. Way out. 177 rooms erupt from the heritage building in the form of minimalist (and sexy) new floors and wings. Looking out to Table Mountain, and down to the famous pedestrian haven of St. George's Mall, rooms range in design from classic to contemporary, but share all the technological comforts you'd expect.

With a name like Taj, you'd be right to expect some no-nonsense Indian food. The Bombay Brasserie simmers the rich and complex flavors of the east to create dishes like Paneer Tikka, Line Fish in Spiced Coconut Curry, and Lentil Dumplings in Yoghurt. For a bit of change, try the international favorites at Mint, or seafood and cocktails at the playfully named Twankey.

Once you've gawked, shopped, and eaten your way through Cape Town, stop in at the Jiva Grande Spa for some ancient Indian relaxation and healing techniques that work just as well as they did back when the Rajputs ran the homeland.

Lovely Central Hotel

We ended up staying here due to an error on my part, where our original hotel had been booked for the wrong dates! Thankfully I noticed in time. This is much larger than I would normally stay in on holiday, but was pleasantly surprised by the friendliness & efficiency of staff, the amazing view from the bedroom, the bathroom in itself and the high quality breakfast.
As a location it's very central - walking distance to many great restaurants and the market and a welcome break from the pure touristy feel of the Waterfront.
This is the first time I've stayed in a Taj outside India and I was pleased to see that the things I love about their hotels there, do translate across oceans.
Would definitely stay again.
