About Us

The Silo Hotel is a magical hotel towering above the V&A Waterfront surrounded by the natural wonder of South Africa’s Mother City.

The Silo has been built in the grain elevator portion of the historic grain silo complex occupying six floors above the Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa (MOCAA). Zeitz MOCAA houses Africa’s largest collection of contemporary African art.

The exterior of the building was designed by Thomas Heatherwick, Founder and Principal of the London-based Heatherwick Studio. From the outside, the greatest visible change to the building’s original structure is the addition of the ingenious glass windows inserted into the geometry of the hotel floors. These multi-faceted windows bulge outward as if gently inflated. By night, this transforms the building into a glowing beacon in the Table Bay harbour.

The Silo Hotel is a celebration of art, style, architecture and design. A tribute to timeless glamour and contemporary luxury. Watch our video about the development of The Silo Hotel here.

After a successful opening in March 2017, The Silo Hotel has welcomed both local and international guests through its doors. Watch our latest video and see what The Silo Hotel has to offer here.

Best of the Best

Topping Cape Town’s new Museum of Contemporary Art Africa, the family-owned Silo Hotel hits all the high notes. The former grain elevator was reimagined from rough concrete into diamond, with crystalline windows and a whimsical elegance. Watch the bustle below while soaking in a freestanding tub in one of 28 rooms, designed with a bold mix of colors, prints, and textures. Champagne and carving trolleys roll through the Granary Café, and the spa is sumptuously serene. Grab a glass of pinotage to sip during sunset from the wraparound rooftop terrace.

Advisor Tip

Start the day with warm scones and jam in the Granary Café, then visit the Zeitz MOCAA (African art museum) attached to the hotel, and finish the day at the rooftop bar.
