Hotel Café Royal, London, unveils new lobby & guest arrival experience

The luxury, 5-star Hotel Café Royal, London’s first modern grand hotel, has unveiled its stunning new lobby and guest arrival experience, designed and overseen by the world-renowned architect and interior designer Piero Lissoni, and delivering an outstanding and glamorous new entrance to the hotel.

Inspired by the lobbies of the world’s Palace hotels, the new reception space at Hotel Café Royal is double height and one of the largest in London.



The minimalist design is characterised by a sense of space and contemporary glamour fusing the building’s guilded past with the contemporary lifestyle of its patrons.

 As visitors arrive through the double-height revolving door they are first greeted by a view of the bespoke 350kg Murano glass chandelier that dominates the room, a magnificent feature designed by Lissoni himself displaying flowers by Hotel Café Royal’s in-house florist Jamie Aston.



Above this new lobby space Lissoni’s work continues into the 110 cover restaurant.

A personal passion for food and kitchen design has led the architect to work with a number of chefs and now the internationally-renowned Laurent Tourondel who will shortly open the new restaurant at Hotel Café Royal.



The restaurant will offer relaxed yet refined all-day dining and will build upon the history of the famous Grill Room restaurant, established on the site in 1865.

A new grill concept in line with contemporary lifestyles has been created, with the restaurant featuring an open kitchen serving fresh vegetables, fish and meat from the grill. In addition there will be an exceptional sushi offering to complete the experience.

Booth seating and lighting by Lissoni will create an informal but sophisticated atmosphere with the products and pieces used throughout the spaces handpicked by Lissoni.


As Lissoni has said of the project:

I wanted to respect and convey the true ‘feeling’ of London by combining the contemporary life and taste of the city’s inhabitants with its inheritant elegance and tradition. On this project the word ‘impossible’ was forbidden to use”.
