Occupying a prime spot along the V&A Waterfront, the Silo is one of the most exciting new hotel openings Cape Town has seen in recent years.
The Silo takes its name from its architectural home; this luxurious hotel has been built within the grain lift of the waterfront's historic grain silo complex. Even better, the hotel rooms are perched six floors above what is to become the Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa - Cape Town's answer to The Tate, or MoMa NYC.
There are 28 guestrooms within The Silo, including the spectacular one bedroom penthouse which overlooks the entire city and the inimitible Table Mountain. Guestrooms and Suites overlook either the harbour or the city and mountains behind, and all have been individually designed and decorated by Liz Biden, the design force behind equally beautiful Birkenhead House in Hermanus.
While the location, style and views are reason enough to stay at The Silo, additional facilities at the hotel include a spa, rooftop bar (the perfect spot for a sunset champagne), glass walled rooftop swimming pool and a gym.
Every guestroom is individually designed, with unique furnishings and artworks.
