The Silo Hotel
Ranked #22 of 112 Hotels in Cape Town Central
Reviewed 27 May 2017

An outstanding place for everyone who loves design, class, and luxury. The hotel is placed in the middle of a genuine harbour and in the waterfront. Jogging possible inside and outside, plus Spa. The people are very friendly and trained on the highest level. In future, after September, the contemporary African art museum (to be named and opened officially) will form part of this complex. Has a unique roof top with 360 view always available for the hotel guests. Depending on whether you like morning or evening sun you may book the room appropriately. The penthouse got all options.

Room Tip: Consider morning or evening sun.

The Silo is a wonderful add to the Cape Town hotel choices. General Manager Lewis and the staff welcomed us and check in was a breeze.

Our trip was made extra special from the Guest Relations Manager Hoon Kim's recommendations for visiting the city. We loved our room. The décor is spectacular, the rooms well furnished, very comfortable bedding, radiant heat in the bathroom. Automated blinds in the room softened the sunlight. The area around the hotel is still under construction, as is the Museum of Contemporary Art.

Breakfast was included at the Granary Restaurant. Individual triple table trays hold various fruits, meats, yogurt and other cold choices. Menu is available if hot breakfast is preferred. Smoothies are on offer at the beginning of the meal.

Airport transfer arranged by hotel was flawless. We were met at airport by a representative to direct us to check in and the security line.

Roof top is very much a happening place in the local market. Reservations required. Rooftop pool has a see through side. I'd book here again in a heartbeat.

The Silo is located in the administrative building of the old Silo right by the V&A Waterfront. The actual attached Silos are being turned into the new museum of contemporary art (opens in September 2017). The location is right next to the waterfront with tons of shops, restaurants and attractions.

Check-in: 6th floor lobby - 2 minutes. Greeted by General Manager, Concierge and the whole staff.

Room: AWESOME. We got a 2 bedroom, 2 level suite. The living room with panoramic views of the City, Table Mountain and Waterfront. The entire suite was well decorated as one would expect from Liz Biden. Massive master bath suite with huge tub looking out at the mountain and waterfront, walk in shower, double sinks etc. etc. etc.

Service: Fantastic. The concierge (I'm sorry I forgot his name) was amazing - had us going all over the city for art galleries, restaurants, coffee and museums. You can Uber in Cape Town for next to nothing. A half hour ride to Camps Bay in rush hour was less than $10. Make sure to check out the Old Biscuit Mill market and shops - cool galleries in that area. District 6 Museum is educational. Best deals for traditional african necklaces, bowls and bracelets was at the downtown open markets... good selection at V&A stores - but a bit pricier.

Food: Ate breakfast at the restaurant every day. Get the fresh basket of pastries (the chocolate ones are a must), yoghurt, berries, meats - you name it they got it. Same great service. Had dinner there as well.

Rooftop: Again, 360 degree views of the city - reserved for hotel guests first. Restaurant and bar up there as well - local hot spot. There is also a transparent rooftop pool if you have the desire.

Room Tip: If you can try one of the 2 level suites - I think our room was 702 - great views!

The Silo is a standout. An architectural masterpiece with the most incredible interior decor I've ever seen. The colors and style - the ample space, high ceilings - it all WOW'd me. I have seen many hotels in my life, but this one is a definite favorite.
Don't forget to head to the rooftop where you'll see a very cool pool and an even cooler bar scene, not the mention the most fabulous views of the waterfront, the city and Table Mountain!
The Silo is a MUST for all heading to SA!

Room Tip: All of the rooms are wonderful. It depends on what specific needs you have.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The Silo Hotel is a magical space 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 is a contemporary art museum that rivals the likes of the Tate Modern in London, MoMA in New York and Museo Nacional del Prado in Madrid. Zeitz MOCAA is a not-for-profit partnership between the V&A Waterfront and Jochen Zeitz, whose collection forms the Museum’s founding collection. The building has been designed by Thomas Heatherwick, Founder and Principal of the London-based Heatherwick Studio. Heatherwick Studio was tasked with the transformation of the elevator house and the adjacent storage annex of six rows of seven silos, while carefully retaining its cultural significance. ... more   less
