Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

The hotel is gorgeous. The location is perfect! The staff is second to none! London is amazing and full of charm and so much history! Hotel Cafe Royal, for me, us, is the same. Sexy, charming, full of many many stories, from decades ago... However, the staff is truly phenomenal! Not one person was not lovely and helpful and present. Grace & Showmo in Brasserie Saint Germain, were fantastic! Ali, one of the concierge's was wonderful! I am just listing a few that stuck out to me. The entire staff is truly the best of the best. if you are looking for an amazing hotel, look no further. If you are looking for a staff to make you feel like you are the only one that needs attending to to, you have found your home. We will be back!

Having loved our stay at their beautiful sister property in Amsterdam, we were disappointed in the Hotel Cafe Royal. Rooms are sterile and don’t feel luxurious. Service is attentive but often inexperienced. Concierge recommendations were touristy and uninspired. We did have very nice service in the restaurant from the very experienced Lorenzo and lovely waitress Brianna.

Opening my hips felt good, my baby liked it as it was kicking. My back feels more relaxed and the vertebrae massage felt very good. Loved the side floating and being pulled by my head, it was very enjoyable for me and my baby. The temperature of the water 35 C felt just right. What a wonderful way of bonding with my baby. I would be interested to book again before giving birth. Regular sessions for 4th trimester after birth would be helpful. I’ll need pampering. My baby is a water sign. It makes me drink a lot of water and go swimming. - Asa Bjornberg

My favourite hotel to stay in London by far. Location is perfect, rooms are amazing, staff are the best as too is the breakfast. Hope to be back soon. We were recently looked after by Katie, who made sure we had everything we needed to make our stay just right. You can pull up outside, luggage is taken to your room and they park your car until you need it again. Everything is within a short walk but to be honest once you are there you don’t want to leave. Make sure you make the most of the facilities. Pool is fantastic and the meditation room is the perfect place to clear your mind of the daily stresses and strains.

After 2 years of no travel, we decided to visit London and this hotel became a top 5 star property after its renovation. From outside it looks like a classical building but as you walk in your room every modern amenities has been provided and the layout of the room was perfect. The bathroom is modern and has a great shower. We had top notch drinks at the evening bar and the morning breakfast was delicious. Check in was a breeze and every time we needed something the staff were helpful and always had a smile on. We will definitely be back.
