Overview

Recently restored hotel with a history that spans more than 150 years that merges historical suites, restaurants, and a grand lobby with modern accommodations, the Club at Cafe Royal for artists, and a full-service spa. Within walking distance of London's finest shopping streets, tourist attractions, and theatreland.
Situated in the heart of central London, the Hotel Café Royal has reopened as a luxury five star hotel. Paying homage to the history of the building, grand historic areas have been sensitively restored and a selection of restaurants, bars, and event spaces are a tribute to the property's rich heritage of hospitality and dining excellence.

The iconic London landmark now has 160 contemporary guest rooms, including 54 suites and seven signature suites. Accommodations feature either fumed English oak panels or rusticated Portland stone, along with Italian Carrara marble bathrooms with walk-in rainfall showers and mirror TVs, and many bathrooms have deep soaking marble bathtubs. Most suites offer picturesque London views of Regent Street, Piccadilly Circus, St. James, or Westminster. The variety of suites cater to guests looking for either modern features with cutting-edge technology or classic interiors such as the Elizabethan style Tudor Suite, the imperial Royal Suite, or the circular Dome Penthouse with two private terraces offering breathtaking Mary-Poppins-views over London’s rooftops, Big Ben, and Westminster.

Continuing its celebrated legacy, Hotel Café Royal offers a selection of restaurants and bars. At the heart of the hotel, the Ten Room offers British informal dining all-day, while the Green Bar is a place to relax and unwind with a cocktail. Restored to revive the ornate Louis XVI décor and detailing, the jewel of the hotel, the Oscar Wilde Bar (formerly the iconic Grill Room, originally established in 1865), is now the place to enjoy afternoon tea. The Café, on Regent Street, revives the European tradition of café culture and is home to London's first dessert restaurant by Executive Pastry Chef Sarah Barber.

The hotel's latest offering, The Club at Café Royal was conceived to ensure that the Regent Street venue becomes once again a crucible for writers, artists, poets, musicians. The Club celebrates a long legacy of famed patrons as it welcomes the return of today's leaders and stars from the literary, art, and fashion worlds.

There's also the Akasha Holistic Wellbeing Centre, an urban retreat leading a new concept of wellbeing, with a state-of-the-art-gym, large lap pool, Watsu pool, sauna and Hammam/steam room, along with a range of signature treatments and wellbeing specialists that marry innovative Western practices with ancient Eastern traditions.

The hotel's event spaces blend the grandeur of the hotel with modern technology and comfort. From the artfully restored Pompadour Ballroom, rich with historical detail, to cutting-edge conference rooms and a boardroom with natural daylight, all are equipped with the latest technology, including WiFi and full AV support.
