The Silo Hotel, Cape Town

Superluxe - £££££


If you hear the word ‘silo’, you’re unlikely to associate it with somewhere great to stay. However, The Silo Hotel has been transformed into a luxury 28-roomed, five-star getaway that you really must check out if you’re in Cape Town for a day or two.

It’s right in the heart of the impressive V&A Waterfront, so you have great views and are close to some of Cape Town’s most famous sights. In fact, the hotel sits on top of the Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa (MOCAA), so you won’t have to walk far at all!

The Silo Hotel has been built in the grain elevator of Cape Town’s famous historic grain silo; it stretches up six floors and has incredible geometric glass windows.

The rooms in this hotel include one stunning penthouse suite right at the top. They are a fantastic fusion of classic furniture and modern industrial architecture, which blend perfectly together, so you’ll feel right at home.


There are three places to eat and drink in this hotel and all of them are a little quirky. The Granary Cafe serves delicious meals all day long that showcase local ingredients. The Willaston Bar is great for relaxing and enjoying some snacks, while the Silo Rooftop is the best place to watch the sunset or have a quick meal looking out across to Table Mountain.

The Silo Spa is simply serene. The white marble finish exudes luxury and relaxation. Indulge in one of the incredible treatments and leave feeling totally revitalised.

Why We Love It

The Silo Hotel has taken a piece of old Cape Town and reinvented it as something new, modern and trendy as!
