Review of The Silo Hotel
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 30 May 2024
Price is really steep for South Africa, but I guess the market is willing to best the price. For a more budget friendly option in the Waterfront I recommend the Queen Victoria Hotel. Thar being said, we really liked the hotel and location. Rooms and of course views are amazing. Service was good if not very polished. Location is great and having stayed at the Cspe Grace previously would pick the Silo just for the views.
We enjoyed walking around the waterfront and visiting the Museum of Modern Art Africa attached to the hotel.
Splurge for one of the nicer rooms and request preferred view if that matters to you.

AMAZING !!! NO WORDS !!! WORTH EVERY PENNY!!! I was fighting with my greed and was very happy to win and to book Delux Superior corner room overlooking waterfront !
i did never paid so much for hotel room. But i understood from first step into my room that i will never regret about this choice. The reality is much more impressive than presented on booking.com. Around 6 meters ceiling ! Breathtaking views from all rooms and bathroom to port and sea. Great design ! A lot of complimentary snacks, wines, sweets, drinks... Hotel management thought carefully about any possible needs you may want. I did not want to leave room till end of my stay. With a small exception to swim in swimming pool on top of hotel which you can visit 24h .So, swimming alone at nigh under stars were unbeatable.
The breakfast was piece of art as well.
All hotel make impression that you stay in museum (not only the basemen with real museum of MOCAA )
I dont have wish to be back to Cape Town. But maybe i will do exception just for The Silo hotel to fulfill me with its incredible energy !!!!

Room tip: choose corner rooms

Its unique and surrounded by interesting places for tourists. At its roof top you can see the beauty of CT. Watch the sun set. Splush in the pool and find peace of mind. Each employee did his duties perfectly including helping with lagagges. Cleanliness.

Yes this is a pricy hotel but the attention to detail, service and the rooms are amazing. The rooftop bar and pool are wonderful and breakfast is a real treat. The bar at night has such great reflections it’s hard to capture. I would visit again and go for the Royal Suite again ❤️

Room tip: I would definitely book the rooftop and go for a dip in the pool - it was surprisingly warm for March 😊

Went to the rooftop bar for sunset drinks and picked one of the windiest nights to go. Despite this the cocktails were excellent as was the service and hospitality. As there were no hotel guests in their private area we taken up to the top to have photos taken with magnificent views across Cape Town. Even managed to see most of the sunset.

Room tip: Pre-book the rooftop bar.
