The Silo Hotel is an extraordinary five-star hotel owned by The Royal Portfolio of Liz and Phil BIDEN. Located in the historic grain silo at the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront, in Cape Town, South Africa, The Silo hotel shares with the Zeitz MOCAA the same building. This Hotel sets a new standard for luxury Cape Town accommodation.
The Silo Hotel is built in the grain elevator portion of the historic grain silo complex occupying six floors above Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa (Zeitz MOCAA), the largest collection of contemporary African art. The exterior of the building was designed by Heatherwick Studio. From 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 structures make building shining like diamonds during the day while at night, it is glowing. This Hotel is not only a great mixture of art, style, architecture and design, but also the result of open-mindedness of owners expressed by the fact that each section reflects a different atmosphere from another.
The decoration is very diverse, glamour and luxury. The Silo Hotel has 28 rooms, including a huge one bedroom penthouse. Each room has been individually designed and decorated by Liz Biden. Colourful and eclectic pieces juxtapose the modern, industrial architecture. The 6 room categories are based on the room size and the views. Each room has a private balcony and a unique collection of contemporary African art.
