We stayed at the Café Royal for one night at the end of July and had a most enjoyable time.
The hotel has only opened in December and everything has been done to the highest specifications. The rooms are in two different designs. One of which has wood panelling all over the walls, the other has white walls imitating the stones used on the outside of the building. The bathrooms are absolutely beautiful. Carrera marble has been used everywhere…on the floors, the walls, the sinks, the bath…absolutely gorgeous. It is also nice to see that the hairdryer does have more power than the usual you find in hotels all over the world. There is a TV in the bathroom mirror which is a very cute touch.
The whole design is very minimalistic which normally isn’t so much to our taste, but the quality of the design is so high that we could not help but like it.
The position of the hotel of course is great. Right at the end of Regent Street, literally on Piccadilly Circus. Despite this, not a sound from outside was entering our room.
Service at this hotel also goes without saying is wonderful.
The pool and gym area had not yet been completed but we could use the facilities of the Meridien Hotel just round the corner. I do however look forward to going back when the work has been completed as I am sure it would add to the wonderful experience of staying at this lovely hotel.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Combining architectural heritage with contemporary design, Cafe Royal has been reincarnated as a luxury hotel in the heart of London's West End with the elegance of Mayfair to the west and the creativity of Soho to the east. Grand historic areas have been sensitively restored while 160 guestrooms, including 49 suites and six signature suites have been created in a contemporary yet refined style. Our guestrooms start from approximately 35 sq m / 377 sq ft to 212 sq m / 2,281sq ft with every room presenting itself as a suite. Continuing its celebrated legacy, Hotel Cafe Royal offers a selection of restaurants and bars for guests to enjoy. At the heart of the hotel, the Ten Room offers British informal dining all-day, while the Green Bar is the perfect place to relax and unwind with a cocktail. Restored to revive the ornate Louis XVI decor and detailing, the iconic Oscar Wilde Bar (formerly the legendary Grill Room, originally established in 1865), is now the place to enjoy Champagne, cocktails and a light menu of British dishes and live entertainment on select evenings. The Cafe, on Regent Street, revives the European tradition of cafe culture. To complete the experience, the Akasha Holistic Wellbeing Centre is an urban retreat in the centre of the capital spanning over 1,200 sq m / 13,000 sq ft featuring a large lap pool, sauna and Hammam/steam room and offering a range of signature treatments. Reflecting a core vision to harmoniously unite the four natural elements of nature, Akasha features four corresponding spaces; lounge/earth, spa/water, gym/fire, yoga/air. ... more less
