Feefo logo


The Silo is a feat of architectural imagination and style in the prime location of the V&A Waterfront in the heart of Cape Town. This striking hotel is located in the old elevator portion of the historic grain silo complex above the Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa, which aims to have the largest collection of modern African art on the world. The Silo is constructed from glass panels and steel and at night, is transformed into a glowing beacon in the working harbour.

There are 28 rooms, ranging from standard rooms to royal suites, as well as a spacious penthouse with triple aspect views of Table Mountain, the harbour and Atlantic Ocean. All rooms are individually designed and decorated with eclectic pieces juxtaposing a modern industrial style. It also has a rooftop swimming pool and a spa as well as a gym. Its central position makes outings to the city centre very easy and the V&A Waterfront entertainment complex is within walking distance.
