From its incredibly unique architecture to its eclectic decor and extraordinary views, the Silo Hotel offers guests a truly extraordinary experience. Situated in the centre of Cape Town, the luxurious hotel is quickly establishing itself as an icon in the Mother City. This is definitely a hotel that you don’t want to pass up an opportunity to stay at.

As part of the grand prize, the winner of “Africa’s Photographer of the Year” competition will have the honour of spending four luxurious nights at The Silo.


The hotel is absolutely magnificent and there are a few amazing aspects to it that you should know about:

Unique Architecture

The pillared windows, which bulge outward as if gently inflated creating a dome-like design. These windows transform the building into a glowing lantern at night and when stepped out into, give guests up, down and side-to-side views of the extraordinary scenery that Cape Town has to offer.


Eclectic Decor

The hotel is elegant and extremely exclusive, offering tranquility to its guests. Each of its 28 rooms are individually designed and decorated using an extensive range of sources.

What to do

Cape Town is a city that offers an endless list of possible activities, from taking the cable car up Table Mountain and walking through the exquisite gardens of Kirstenbosch to shopping and eating at the world-renowned V&A Waterfront. The Silo, being in the centre of Cape Town, is the perfect place to stay as it is situated so centrally.


The hotel also offers a more in-house experience for guests, which includes a magnificent bar and restaurant. There is also an incredibly tranquil spa where guests can indulge in being pampered by the hotel’s expert therapists.
