The Silo Hotel
Built in the grain elevator portion of the historic grain silo complex and occupying six floors above Zeitz MOCAA (Museum of Contemporary Art Africa), located in South Africa’s oldest working harbour and set against the backdrop of Table Mountain, The Silo Hotel towers above the V&A Waterfront and offers spectacular views of South Africa’s Mother City.
Designer Thomas Heatherwick preserved the landmark’s skyline status as a harbour beacon, with dramatic glass-pillowed windows, bubble-wrapping the façade, which pays homage to the building’s history as the half-grain geometries glow outwardly at night. Owner Liz Biden has created eclectic interiors that soften the industrial feel of the building, all 28 rooms having luxurious bathrooms where guests can soak in spectacular city views from the tub.
With amazing culinary offerings, The Silo Hotel stands its ground against the fantastic gastronomic choices of Cape Town. The Silo Hotel is a celebration of art, style, architecture and design. It stands tall as a tribute to timeless glamour and contemporary luxury.

Things to be aware of
