Hotel description

True to its original glamorous spirit, Hotel Café Royal has reopened as a luxury five star hotel in the heart of central London. With elegant Mayfair to the west and creative Soho to the east, Hotel Café Royal is perfectly positioned to make the most off London’s finest shopping streets, tourist attractions and theatreland – you will find all this and more within walking distance.

Frequented by distinguished figures such as Winston Churchill, Mick Jagger and David Bowie, Hotel Café Royal has always been the place to convene, converse and celebrate. It also proudly pays homage to the history of the building – as evidenced by the grand historic areas that have been sensitively restored. The superb selection of restaurants, bars and events spaces are also a tribute to the rich heritage of excellent hospitality and dining.

In its magnificent reincarnation, this iconic London landmark now features 160 contemporary guest rooms, including 54 suites and seven signature suites. In addition, Hotel Café Royal has recently unveiled its new lobby and guest arrival experience. Designed by the world-renowned architect and interior designer Piero Lissoni, the spacious new lobby delivers an outstanding and glamorous entrance to the hotel.

To complete the full experience at Hotel Café Royal, the Akasha Holistic Wellbeing is an urban spa retreat featuring a state-of-the-art-gym, large lap pool, Watsu pool, sauna and Hammam/steam room.


Hotel Café Royal features 160 contemporary guest rooms, including 54 suites and seven signature suites. Each guest room is elegantly designed with Portland stone, Carrara marble bathrooms, and the latest in modern technology, giving you a sumptuous and peaceful retreat in the heart of the city. Contemporary style and modern technology are balanced against classic design features to create something exceptional. Each signature suite has its own particular style, from the elegant grandeur of the Royal Suite, the distinct history of the Tudor Suite, to the contemporary comfort of the Presidential Suite.



Laurent at Café Royal is the brand-new 110-cover restaurant, run by internationally renowned chef Laurent Tourondel and specialising in grill and sushi. Adjacent to Laurent is Ziggy’s, a cocktail bar that pays homage to one of Café Royal’s famed patrons, David Bowie. The Oscar Wilde Lounge is the finest place to enjoy award-winning afternoon tea, while the Green Bar is the perfect place to relax and unwind with a cocktail in hand. Cakes & Bubbles by Albert Adria (known as the world’s best pastry chef) serves exceptional desserts alongside a selection of Champagnes and sparkling wines.
