The Silo Hotel is located in the grain elevator portion of the historic grain silo complex occupying six floors above Zeitz Museum Of Contemporary Art Africa (MOCAA).

It is in the heart of Cape Town’s V&A Waterfront with 360o views from Table Mountain to Robben Island.

At the hotel itself, guests can relax at the spa, take afternoon tea overlooking Table Mountain, quaff champagne, swim in the rooftop pool, work off the city’s fine dining in the gym or enjoy a guided tour of the hotel’s private art collection containing over 300 pieces of contemporary African art.


Cape Town is consistently ranked among the Top 10 cities in the world to visit by the likes of Condé Nast Traveler and Travel+Leisure magazine. The ‘Mother City’, as it is affectionately known, is a colourful and vibrant city surrounded by dramatic mountains and sandy beaches. The magic of Cape Town lies in the collision of natural wonder, diverse cultures, art, design and a thriving food and wine scene.

The Silo Hotel is located in Cape Town’s V&A Waterfront and is the ideal base from which to explore all that the city has to offer.

The nearest airport is Cape Town International Airport (CPT), about 17 km from The Silo Hotel.
