A real gem in Cape Town, the Silo Hotel offers a fabulous mix of style and luxury. The rooftop pool and bar are some of the Mother City's hottest spots on a sunny evening. Art lovers should not miss a visit to the Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa on site.
The Silo Hotel sets a new standard for luxury Cape Town accommodation. A magical hotel towering above the V&A Waterfront surrounded by the natural wonder of South Africa’s Mother City. The hotel has been built in the grain elevator portion of the historic grain silo complex occupying six floors above Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa (MOCAA) which houses Africa’s largest collection of contemporary African art. The exterior of the building was designed by Heatherwick Studio. From the outside, the greatest visible change to the building’s original structure is the addition of the ingenious glass windows inserted into the geometry of the hotel floors. These multi-faceted structures glisten like diamonds during the day while at night the building transforms into a glowing beacon in the Table Bay harbor.
The Silo Hotel has 28 rooms, including a spectacular one bedroom penthouse. Each room has been individually designed and decorated by the stylish wand of Liz Biden. Colorful and eclectic pieces juxtapose the modern, industrial architecture. The rooms are more spacious vertically than horizontally due to the unique architecture of The Silo Hotel and in particular the ingenious design of the pillowed window bays which are one of the key architectural features. Silo guests received free museum entrance during their stay.
The ‘Mother City’ is a colorful and vibrant city surrounded by dramatic mountains and sandy beaches. The magic of Cape Town lies in the collision of natural wonder, diverse cultures, art, design and a thriving food and wine scene.
