The Silo Hotel
The Silo Hotel is an exclusive five-star premium hotel in Cape Town’s V&A Waterfront and is defined by Thomas Heatherwick’s shimmering pillowed-glass windows that offer some of the best views in the world. The Silo Hotel has been built in the grain elevator portion of the historic grain silo complex occupying six floors above Zeitz MOCAA (Museum of Contemporary Art Africa). Zeitz MOCAA houses Africa’s largest collection of contemporary African art. Each of the 28 rooms, including a spectacular one bedroom penthouse, has been individually designed and decorated by owner Liz Biden using colourful and eclectic pieces which juxtapose its modern, industrial architecture.
The experience at The Silo Hotel is focused on the art and culture of Cape Town, a colourful and vibrant city surrounded by dramatic mountains and sandy beaches. It is certainly one of the most beautiful cities in the world – presided over by one of the 7 Natural Wonders of The World – Table Mountain. The magic of Cape Town lies in the collision of natural wonder, diverse cultures, art, design and a thriving food and wine scene.
