The Silo Hotel
Towering above the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront, the Silo Hotel is a remarkable architectural highlight of the Cape Town skyline. As the name implies, the hotel was built at the top of a 100 year-old grain silo that was creatively converted into a complex housing Africa's largest contemporary art museum as well as this world-class five star hotel. With it's elevation and harborside location, The Silo enjoys unsurpassed views of the city, Table Mountain, and Table Bay.
This re-purposed historic grain silo preserves the characteristics of the original structure, while also transforming it into an extraordinary example of forward-thinking contemporary architecture. The exterior of the building is constructed of multi-faceted glass windows that bulge outward, as if gently inflated. By night, this feat of design transforms the building into a glowing beacon in Cape Town’s harbor.
The interior is equally impressive, with its focus on modern African artists and their eclectic works. There are several stylish dining options on the property, including a rooftop cocktail bar. The Silo also boasts a tranquil indulgent spa, along with a gym and sauna.
Guests are accommodated in 28 rooms, including a spectacular one bedroom penthouse. Each room has been individually designed with colorful and cosmopolitan pieces that juxtapose the modern, industrial architecture.
The Zeitz Museum is set just below the Silo and contains over 100 galleries showcasing Africa's leading contemporary artists. In addition, The Vault, the hotel’s small and exclusive art gallery, provides a link between the museum and top local artists, featuring new exhibits bi-annually.
With its intimate size, prime location on the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront, and unsurpassed views of the "Mother City", this former grain silo has been reinvented into Cape Town's most prestigious address. The Silo and adjoining Museum of Contemporary Art Africa help to further bolster Cape Town's reputation as one of the World's great travel cities.For more information about The Silo Hotel call toll-free: 888.227.8311
