Location

The Waterfront is easily accessible from this hotel. Just a few minutes' walk to the V&A mall, it's also right over the Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa. This is far and away the tallest structure in the Harbour. You can also enjoy the stunning views of Cape Town while seated in a Willaston Bar or on a rooftop lounger.

Guests can also enjoy proximity to art galleries, which are only a short walk away. The Robben Island Ferry is also 700 meters away. A unique experience at the Silo Hotel is created by combining luxury accommodation and art exploration.

Style and Character

Silo has been decorated with Liz Biden's unique style. It is an eclectic mixture of furniture made to Liz's specifications. There are also button-down Chesterfields beneath Egyptian chandeliers. Shining Persian carpets and vibrant colors also dominate. The Silo is a luxurious, comfortable nest. The pillowed glass windows are more impressive than the decor. It was the intention for them to look like lanterns over the harbor.

Service and Facilities

The Royal Portfolio Group always does better than expected and has won many awards. The Silo's staff are also very attentive. They know the group's "purpose and values". There is also a Silo rooftop pool, a bar, and a Silo Spa where you can indulge in the latest therapies.

History

The Silo Hotel's grandeur is rooted in its history. It was initially a complex of grain silos in the 1920s. This tall building was a famous landmark and used to be the tallest in Sub-Saharan Africa. The building symbolized Cape Town's importance in corn storage and trade. It also shares space with Zeitz MOCAA. Over time, Cape Town's focus on industry changed. The majestic building became unused and longed for a new purpose.

The Silo Hotel's metamorphosis is an inspiring story of redefinition and rebirth. Thomas Heatherwick gave the building a facelift. Heatherwick, while retaining the industrial appeal of the building, introduced exquisite geometric windows. These unique windows shine brightly at night, like stars. They establish The Silo as a dominant presence among the city lights.

In the interior, there is harmony in contrast. The decor includes exposed beams and old machinery, giving a rustic and refined ambiance.

Rooms

There are 28 guest rooms. You can see the harbor, city, or Table Mountain through Heatherwick's big, jewel-like window. As you lie on the bed, you may feel like a leopard perched on the edge of a cliff, observing the world from below. The bathrooms also have some of the most spectacular views.

Besides, the tub is on a pillowed window, and the shower has an oblique perspective. Moreover, touchpad blinds control the light level and privacy. You can also expect the standard five-star amenities in your room. These include a television, Nespresso, tea/coffee station, minibar, and air conditioning. The Deluxe Superior Suites are spread across three floors.

Dining

The plate has high-quality meats, local cheeses, fresh fruits, and other items. There is also a pastry basket. Breakfast is extensive, with many options.
