The Silo Hotel has been built in the grain elevator portion of the historic grain silo complex occupying six floors above Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa (MOCAA) which houses Africa’s largest collection of contemporary African art.
The exterior of the building was designed by Heatherwick Studio. From the 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 glisten like diamonds during the day while at night the building transforms into a glowing beacon in the Table Bay harbour.
The Silo Hotel is a celebration of art, style, architecture and design. A tribute to timeless glamour and contemporary luxury offering the highest levels of personalised service synonymous with The Royal Portfolio.
Our entry level rooms, there are 8 Silo Rooms which are 41m² (441ft²) including a balcony with spectacular harbour views. While these rooms are slightly smaller, the bathrooms are as large and majestic as other room categories. Double volume spacing mean the floor to ceiling pillowed glass windows offer 5m high views across the Cape Town Harbour.

These suites vary between 76m² (818ft²) and 88m² (947ft²) including a small balcony and each has the bedroom on a mezzanine level.
