The Silo Hotel

Cape Town, South Africa

About The Silo Hotel

An extravaganza of art, architecture, style and design, the Silo Hotel, one of the newest Cape Town hotels, is an ultra-modern, urban hotel that sets an unparalleled level of luxury for a truly unique stay in Cape Town.

Boasting an iconic past, the Silo Hotel and the adjoining Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa (MOCAA) below were transformed over a period of three years from a former grain silo built in the early 1920s into the spectacular structural display it is today.

From the outside, the Silo Hotel building boasts a dramatic, futuristic aesthetic, on the inside, splashes of colour, bold decorative prints and a collection of incredible, eclectic art pieces create a dazzling display for a truly engaging stay in the mother city.

Each room, which has been individually designed and decorated by the owner Liz Biden, offers jaw-dropping views of the city. As well as a number of bars, bistros and restaurants available on site, the Silo Hotel also offers a fitness centre, a spa, a rooftop bar and a glass swimming pool that overlooks the city.

Why We Love The Silo Hotel

  • The owner of the hotel, Liz Biden, has collected and curated a magnificent collection of art pieces from African artists, all of which are on display throughout the hotel.
  • Showing even more appreciation for art, the hotel showcases the work of upcoming artists by displaying a collection in The Vault, the hotel’s underground parking entrance lobby.
  • Every single square inch of the Cape Town luxury hotel has been carefully considered, planned and designed. The attention to detail in the fabrics and decor alone is spellbinding.
