The Silo Hotel - Eclectic Hotel With A Glass-Walled Pool Overlooking Cape TownThe Silo  

Great location, gorgeous views, spacious rooms... sounds pretty good already? Well, that’s just the beginning because the Silo went above and beyond in making every inch of their hotel as delightful as possible. This is a hotel that, once you enter, you will not want to leave again.

Housed in an impressive structure with bulging glass windows, the Silo is a place that’s dedicated to art and design through and through.

Crème de la crème of the establishment is the one-bedroom Penthouse facing Table Mountain. It features an old-timey study, a piano, an outrageous amount of chandeliers, and views of the city from every room.


In the same building as the Silo, you’ll find Zeitz MOCCA, a contemporary art museum with the largest collection of contemporary African art.

You’ll get a complimentary entrance ticket to the museum with your stay, and you can arrange a guided tour of the exhibition through the hotel concierge.
