The Silo Hotel, Cape Town, South Africa
Located in a converted 1920s grain elevator, The Silo Hotel is a magical hotel towering above the V&A Waterfront surrounded by the natural wonder of South Africa’s Mother City Cape Town. The Silo Hotel sets a new standard for luxury Cape Town accommodation. The Silo Hotel is a celebration of art, style, architecture and design. It is surrounded by the ocean, the mountain and this remarkable Mother City and offers guests a choice between several spacious and elegant suites. 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.
