The Silo Hotel sets a new standard for luxury Cape Town accommodation. A magical, five-star premium hotel towering above the V&A Waterfront surrounded by the natural wonder of South Africa’s Mother City.

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.

The Silo Hotel has 28 rooms, including a spectacular one bedroom penthouse. Each room has been individually designed and decorated by the stylish wand of 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. The images below are indicative of the category only. We cannot guarantee a particular room (other than the penthouse), only the room category.

The Silo Hotel also offers a number of Private Residences situated nearby along the Atlantic Seaboard.

Each of our entry level rooms adopts a unique and exciting colour scheme and collection of contemporary African art. Each room has a private balcony and a large en-suite bathroom.

The Superior Suites are situated across the 6th and 7th floors with either mountain or harbour views. These suites have an upstairs and a downstairs and vary between 76m2 (818ft²) and 88m2 (947ft²) including a small balcony. Like your own little luxury apartment in Cape Town. 

The Deluxe Superior Suites are situated across the 8th, 9th and 10th floors with spectacular 5.5m (18ft) high pillowed glass windows showcasing the natural wonder of Cape Town. They range in size from 60m2 (646ft²) to 67m2 (721ft²) including a balcony and sitting area.

The one-bedroom penthouse is the jewel in The Royal Portfolio’s crown located on the top floor of The Silo Hotel facing Table Mountain with triple aspect views of Cape Town. There is a cinema room and a spa treatment room and the main bedroom has two walk in wardrobes and two marble bathrooms.

Includes two 24m2 (258ft²) private balconies and can be converted into a two-bedroom penthouse.
