Cafe Royal Hotel Review: After an extensive renovation and rebranding, the Café Royal hotel has been reborn as a luxury hotel in central London, within walking distance of popular tourist attractions, shopping and entertainment venues. Guests in search of sophistication can book one of 159 rooms and suites, including six historic suites. They can also enjoy myriad restaurants and bars, such as Ten Room for informal all-day British favorites, the elegant Grill Room for Champagne and light British fare and Café on Regent Street for a traditional European café atmosphere. The 1,200-square-meter Akasha Holistic Wellbeing Centre is an “urban retreat” with a fitness gym, spa, yoga and Pilates studios, an organic bar and a large pool. This hotel’s guest rooms are some of the largest in London, and each has a spacious double-doored entry lobby with additional double doors concealing bathrooms outfitted in Carrara marble (a hotel signature). Amenities include plush Frette linens, Bang & Olufsen media systems, Nespresso coffee machines, mirror TV screens in the bathrooms, oversized towels and robes, heated floors, bath products by Floris, private butler services, room service and packing/unpacking services. This property is a favorite for top-of-the-line conferences and galas with its variety of glamorous meeting and event spaces. Event and meeting amenities range from full A/V support to professional planners.
