The Silo, Cape Town, South Africa
The much-acclaimed Silo has been one of the most talked about hotels in Cape Town in recent years! Located in the city's renowned Victoria and Alfred Waterfront, it has certainly made a big impact since its opening and not surprisingly, has been featured in the BBC Two series 'Amazing Hotels: Beyond the Lobby'. Of course, the novelty of the building helped stir up interest! A concrete grain silo constructed in 1921 in a hard-working port was never going to be an obvious choice for the city's most glamorous new hotel!
The Silo, Cape Town
The Silo is a 28-bedroom hotel which inhabits the upper floors of the silo's former elevator house, the work horse of the original complex. It is now distinguished by remarkable 5.5 metre windows, described as 'pillowed glazing panels' which gently balloon out, saturating the hotel in sparkling light and providing expansive views of Table Mountain as well as the shops and restaurants of the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront below.
The Silo's much talked about Granary Café and Willaston Bar take up the entire sixth floor and there is also a fabulous rooftop pool and sun terrace which wrap around the open-air 11th floor. One thing is for certain - there is no other hotel like this in Cape Town at the moment and probably won't be for a long time to come!
