The Silo, Cape Town

Housed within the top six floors of a historic, 1920s grain silo, The Silo Hotel boasts an unparalleled location on Cape Town’s bustling waterfront.

Following careful restoration and remodelling, the property retains much of the old silo’s original structure with the addition of striking newer features including geometric, floor-to-ceiling windows. Sitting above the Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa, the whole property is an eye-catching feature of Table Bay harbour, providing easy access to the attractions of the waterfront.

When you’re not exploring Cape Town you can enjoy the many facilities of the hotel. Take afternoon tea overlooking Table Mountain, enjoy a guided tour of the Zeitz Museum or enjoy a dip in the rooftop glass-sided swimming pool. Head to the fourth-floor spa for personalised treatments from an expert therapist, or drink in sparkling city views from the rooftop champagne bar. Guests are accommodated in 28 tastefully appointed rooms, including one beautiful penthouse, with chic, contemporary furnishings and dramatic ocean and city views.
