Rooms & Suites

Home to legends

Take up residence in exquisitely reimagined rooms and suites that were once witness to history.



The aesthetic of all our rooms is a contemporary interpretation of classic Edwardian style befitting the history and splendour of the Old War Office Building (The OWO) where Raffles London is housed. The design was masterminded by Thierry Despont, who previously transformed landmark buildings such as the Statue of Liberty.



Our suites combine the excitement of heritage and historic architectural detailing with Thierry Despont’s design flair and all the space and modern comforts you need to enjoy your stay in this historic part of London.

Raffles London at The OWO - United Kingdom

All in the detail

Reminiscent of the past, brought to life in a modern way by skilled designers and craftspeople, the rooms and suites at Raffles London at The OWO feature customised carpets, fabrics and wallcoverings to complement the natural lightness, while custom-built furniture and lighting are designed for contemporary comfort. In the guestroom corridors, the design of the carpet draws inspiration from the original floor grills and historic fabric of the building, and the window treatments were designed as a nod to the iconic uniforms of the Horse Guards. London perfumer Azzi Glasser developed a fragrance for the hotel, embodied in a special collection of bathroom products. The fragrance is a timeless classic with fresh revitalising notes of Sicilian bergamot, neroli absolute and clary sage along with rich vetiver, cedarwood and red sequoia wood amplified by the heritage base of mousse de Saxe and black oudh.

Footsteps in our hallowed halls

Raffles London at The OWO was once inhabited by Britain's most famous statesmen and spies from Lord Haldane to Winston Churchill. Novelist Ian Fleming, creator of James Bond, took inspiration from the building for his stories, and many of the subsequent Bond movies filmed scenes in the building. Today this Grade II* Edwardian Baroque building has been cherished and restored by thousands of expert craftspeople and transformed into Raffles' first London hotel.
