The Silo

The Silo is positioned at the heart of downtown Cape Town, overlooking the historic V&A waterfront. Housed within a 57-metre-high former grain silo, it sits on top of the Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa (MOCAA).

The hotel is spread over six floors, affording views of both the city and distant Table Mountain. 30 rooms fill the silo's repurposed tower, split into seven categories. The unique architecture means the layout is inherently vertically spacious and the clever design makes the most of this. The rooms are all beautifully appointed in contemporary style and are remarkable for their pillowed window bays, with floor-to-ceiling windows.

The Silo's facilities include a rooftop restaurant and swimming pool, as well as a private sky terrace. There is also access to the gallery (opening late 2017), whilst the waterfront - with its numerous cafes and restaurants - is immediately on hand.

Why We Like It

Few places can claim to have a location as good as The Silo’s. However, it is the beautiful contemporary design that really makes this hotel stand out, with the rooms benefiting from the dramatic views and ample light that the unusual window bays provide.
