Hotel Café Royal

5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

One of my personal favourites. From its Papillon Cafe to the beautiful location, just steps away from Picadilly Circus, this hotel offers the highest quality that any luxury accommodation can offer to the demanding traveler.

My daughter and I had tea at Cafe Royal the last day of our trip and we were very impressed. Our server Sofia, was lovely. She made our last day extra special. Thank you Sofia and staff. I would certainly go back.

While I would much rather be at a pub, my wife wanted to experience a traditional high tea. The atmosphere was very nice and the piano player added to the ambiance. The Celestine tea was very unique and delicious. The sandwiches and desserts were good, some of the freshest scones I have ever had . If you like meat and potatoes this is not the place for you.

My wife and I had afternoon tea as part of a group of ten celebrating a 70th birthday. Our hosts were Phoebe and Daniele who were most attentive. They talked us through the menu and the choices of tea available and kept us supplied with copious amounts of food and drink. The atmosphere was relaxed and Benjamin kept us entertained with a superb repertoire on the piano. We would certainly recommend afternoon tea in this ideal setting in the heart of the city. Thank you once again.

Great hotel. It was our first time to stay there, and we liked every bit of it. Whether the rooms, the service, the food, the concierge, or the location. It’s in the middle of every thing. Theatrical shows, covent garden, Leicester square, Regent Street shopping, Hamley’s, bond St., Selfridges, and Oxford Street attractions are within 5-20 minutes walking radius. Whole Foods is just under the hotel, in case you want to buy groceries. Great food options within 2 minutes walk, including cafe Papillon ( which is part of the hotel).

modern and old warmth Hotel has an optimal position. Theatres, Historical monuments, Royal gardens, parks and palaces very close to the hotel. Shopping area Regent Street and others are two steps from hotel. The hotel is very modern, just the lights are not of my expectations. Too much dark some of areas of the room. All the rest is wonderful!

This hotel is one of the priciest hotels (for what it gives in return) that I have stayed at but that is as expected when you are at the heart of the London tourist area. 5mins walk from Leicester square and shops all around it’s a great area and unlikely to find anything closer. Unlike other 5 stars in Asia, we didn’t get the welcome drinks or the sitting area while we wait to been seen or the glorious sunshine! What we did get was smiling faces, great small talk and exceptional customer services. The hotel itself is glorious. Mouth opening glorious from the old-fashioned lift to the high ceiling corridors. This hotel oozes out history. What makes it even more spectacular are the rooms that are decked out with high technology equipment, from Mirror in the bathroom being also a TV, to the electronic blinds on the window. It maybe a little to modern, as we waited for our TV that is facing the way to turn towards us! As expected from a luxurious hotel, rooms are spacious and clean. Bathroom is a good size. Indoor pool which was in a nice cave like environment was much colder then expected and ended just chilling in the hot tub. I hand on heart wanted to give this hotel a 5 star (even now as I type, I’m on the fence), the only let down is the price! For Long time stay, you probably could find a nice hotel at a cheaper price, but as a one of treat. This was totally worth it! If your want to stay in the Westend and willing to pay the price, I would recommend this hotel every time! We will be back for Christmas 2018 (unfortunately not to stay but just for the hot chocolate which my wife loved and bring her whole family from Singapore to try!)

The quality of food, service are exceptional. The spa is one of my favourite places in London. The rooms are spacious and the dining options are unbeatable. I would highly recommend this enchanting place during your stay in London!

Exactly, this is the way to stay in heart of London with a luxury, every details in this hotel was perfect, it was special occasion for me and my wife, and we really enjoyed that night, the staff was friendly and cooperative. Make sure when you stay in this hotel include the breakfast, because it deserves and I mean it, all famous shops in walking distance, Piccadilly square tube station was 2 minutes walking from the hotel. I don’t think that I need some thing more than this. Thanks hotel cafe Royal for every minute I stayed in the hotel

I booked to take my wife here on 1st March to celebrate her 60th Birthday after seeing Phantom of The Opera which is on close by in The Haymarket. However, due to the snow we were not able to travel to London and we had to postpone our visit until 28th March. I had no problem altering the booking and our visit exceeded our expectations. The tea was sumptuous, and very leisurely listening to the pianist, the service was excellent and we had a great afternoon. A special location for a special person, and thank you to everyone.
