This hotel has a very cool vibe. It's the perfect mix of leaving the old style elevators and also modern feel in the lobby. The rooms all have hardwood floors, which I loved. Feels so much cleaner than carpet. The sheer and drapes are all controlled by a switch. The bathrooms are beautiful with marble floors, which are heated. The... More

From the moment my taxi pulled up to the curb the service was exemplary, at the check in I was treated like royalty and the process was completed in a very efficient manner!

We stayed at the hotel with a 8 years old child. The location and the hotel were great. The service is excellent, the staff is very attentive. The kid's bathrobe and slippers of suitable size were quickly delivered to the room. The rooms are very comfortable with stunning views of Picadilly circus and Big Ben. There are excellent modern interior... More

This is an excellent new addition to the range of hotels in the area. Our room was enormous by London standards and beautifully designed, with huge amount of storage space, so often lacking. Similarly the bathroom was very spacious with a rather charming door to the loo, great for privacy, and plenty of horizontal space for toiletries. Design was great... More

We travel to London frequently on business. We have stayed in many hotels in Piccadilly and found the Hotel Cafe Royal to be one of the best. The location is great - on Regent street just a short walk from the Piccadilly tube station. The hotel is very modern. Rooms are very clean, large (unusual for London) and nicely appointed.... More

The luxury is decent, not abundant, which is very enjoyable. Service is exceptional good, location great, sleep fantastic. The only critique goes to the breakfast, which is somehow sparse, staff over there in the breakfast room is not so attentive, had to remind them for a few things and only back home recognised that they didn't even serve my homemade...

Our first time in London & decided to stay somewhere central & hopefully nice. Cafe Royal did not disappoint. As like most people. Checkin was a breeze. Central to everything in London. Room was big, modern, great room appliances, amazing bed & the room was so quiet, could not hear a thing from outside. Went for a swim in the... More

I attended The Black Cat Cabaret at Hotel Cafe Royal with some friends for a special birthday on Friday night. I must say that it was one of the most spectacular nights out I've had in London in a long time. The room it's held in is stunning, with beautiful, ornate mirrors on all the walls.
