A landmark on London's social scene and well-known hangout among the creative class for well over a century, the Café Royal has been graced with its fair share of personalities and stories. Located in Central London on Regent Street in the heart of the West End, the hotel is perfectly positioned to take in the city's iconic attractions, world-famous theaters, and finest shopping streets and gourmet restaurants.
The Café Royal has played host to a wide array of people over its rich 148-year history, from Virginia Woolf and Oscar Wilde, who could be found drinking absinthe in the bar, to Winston Churchill and Diana, Princess of Wales. The club’s inviting atmosphere, paired with gourmet French cuisine and a reputation of having the best wine cellar in the world cemented the Café Royal’s presence among the social scene for London’s distinguished clients. After an impressive five-year renovation, the Café Royal opened again in 2012 as a hotel with 159 guest rooms and suites, a selection of restaurants and a bar reminiscent of its former days.
The grand historic rooms have been tediously restored to their former glory, while the newly-created guest rooms and suites take on a more contemporary and refined style, with rusticated Portland stone, oak panels, parquet flooring, Carrara marble bathrooms, and luxurious Frete linens. The suites have the feel of a private apartment in central London, with views of some of the city’s greatest landmarks, while the six historic suites pay homage to the property’s original details, balancing 21st century style with an original maple fireplace in the Marquis Suite and a green marble bath and spacious terrace in the Dome Suite.
The Café Royal offers multiple dining choices, including in-room dining with 24-hour room service, informal dining in the Ten Room, and refined gourmet cuisine in the Domino Room. The Grill Room has been restored to its original Louis XVI decor, establishing itself as the jewel of the hotel and the perfect setting to enjoy champagne and cocktails. The Bar pays homage to Oscar Wilde as a celebrated gathering place and features an incredible absinthe fountain and wide array of libations.Request Information
