WHOLE GRAIN

The Silo Ho­tel, in an aban­doned grain el­e­va­tor, is the new­est — and best — place to stay in Cape Town.

THE BEST PLACE TO STAY IN CAPE TOWN is in an aban­doned grain el­e­va­tor. The Silo, the lat­est in South Africa’s re­cent ho­tel boom, is a stun­ning con­crete-and-glass reimag­in­ing of a long-ig­nored 1921 build­ing, whose mas­sive win­dows (and rooftop pool bar) frame postcard views of the wa­ter­front and Ta­ble Moun­tain in the dis­tance. It’s a five-star gem, but the best part might be what’s next door. The ho­tel ad­joins the Zeitz Mu­seum of Con­tem­po­rary Art Africa, the con­ti­nent’s first ma­jor mu­seum of con­tem­po­rary art, which opens this month. All this, as though you needed an­other rea­son to visit Cape Town.
