Design & Architecture

One of the leading design hotels in London, Café Royal has been both sympathetically restored and lovingly modernised.

In an attempt to retain the grand, historic public rooms of the 1860s and 1920s - of which the Café Royal was famed for - these Grade II listed spaces have been painstakingly restored with careful attention to detail and the utmost respect. Meanwhile, our serene rooms and suites have been curated in a modern, sophisticated manner, characterised by refined simplicity and contemporary features. Calm, assured and distinctive, each room and suite represents the Café Royal's glory, both past and present.


In 1863, a French wine merchant called Daniel Nicholas Thévenon and his wife Celestine arrived in England in a bid to escape the clutches of creditors in Paris. So began a story that grew out of bankruptcy and culminated in the creation of Café Royal, a London legend. And this was just the beginning of the story – discover more in the Cafe Royal Times, a collection of stories dating back more than a century.
