True to its original glamorous spirit, Café Royal has reopened as a luxury 5 star hotel in the heart of central London. With elegant Mayfair to the west and creative Soho to the east, Café Royal hotel is perfectly positioned within walking distance of London’s finest shopping streets, tourist attractions and theatreland.
Paying homage to the history of the building, grand historic areas have been sensitively restored and a selection of restaurants, bars and events spaces are a tribute to the rich heritage of excellent hospitality and dining. In its reincarnation this iconic London landmark now features 159 contemporary bedrooms and luxurious suites (including six historic suites).
Continuing its celebrated legacy, Café Royal offers a selection of restaurants and bars for guests to enjoy. At the heart of the hotel, the Ten Room offers British informal all-day dining while The Bar is the perfect place to relax and unwind with a cocktail. Restored to revive the ornate Louis XVI décor and detailing, the iconic Grill Room (originally established in 1865), is now the place to enjoy Champagne, cocktails and a light menu of British dishes. Reservations are recommended and to recapture the spirit of the room we ask that guests dress to be celebrative and sophisticated. The Café, on Regent Street, revives the European tradition of café culture.
To complete the full experience, other new facilities include the Akasha Holistic Wellbeing Centre (opening mid- 2013). Spanning over 1,200sqm, this urban retreat features a state-of-the-art gym, a spa, yoga and Pilates studios, a large pool and organic bar.
Café Royal is the second member of The Set, a collection created to redefine the concept of the luxury hotel for sophisticated, design literate travellers in the 21st Century. Working to an uncompromising brief that called for hotels that were not only of the moment but that would define their times and locations, architects and designers to rework the DNA of the grand hotel and create spaces that are contemporary in conception, whilst simultaneously evocative of the style and glamour of the past.
Located in existing landmark buildings, each member of The Set is rooted in the history and culture of its location as well as the contemporary needs and desires of its guests.
