Good value for money considering its central location. Great for business meetings if you're not having the majority of them in the City or Canary Wharf. Lots of food choices nearby with Covent Garden and the surrounding neighbourhoods within 10 minute walks. The rather well known Sherlock Holmes pub is right next door and Trafalgar Square itself is a stone's throw away. Very liveable sized rooms. Water pressure is good and hot water comes on instantly. Could have included disposable bedroom slippers but otherwise all the amenities you would need on a business trip. Tends to be a bit loud if you have a room facing Northumberland avenue as quite a lot of buses ply that route.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that doesn't face the main road as a lot of London buses run that road.

Stayed here on business for 3 nights. The location is excellent, the staff are very friendly & helpful. I was on the 5th floor which was wonderfully quiet even on a busy Saturday night in June which was a pleasant surprise. The bed was comfortable, the pillows could have been better but that is only a minor niggle. The room was clean & had everything you could need. There are plenty of food shops within easy walking distance so making your own food in the kitchen area is a great option.
I would definitely stay here again either for business or pleasure.

Room Tip: Higher floors are quieter. Wifi easily gets to the 5th floor

Considering how pricy London can be, this is a VERY good hotel for the price. Stayed with my husband for over a week and was not disappointed. The location is quite central and a short walk to two major tube lines -- Embankment and Charing Cross. Tons of buses as well. The room was spacious and clean. The bathrooms were a good standard size with basic amenities. By far the best feature of the hotel was the small kitchenette. It allowed us to purchase groceries (cereal, toast, fruit, yogurt, juice, milk, water) at a nearby supermarket and eat breakfast in the room at our convenience and for a considerably lower price than the hotel breakfast. We also ate in one evening (pasta, salad, etc.) when we were too weary to avoid the restaurant tourist traps. I would highly recommend this hotel. For the location, price, and professional and friendly staff, you cannot beat it. We were able to enjoy London with no grumblings about bathroom size, cost, etc.

Room Tip: Rooms on lower floors could get street noise. This is a happening location! Ask for a room facing...

I stayed here a few years ago when it had more of a budget feel. Now everything is smarter from the electronic key system to the new kettle and iron in the room and the free fresh coffee on tap in the lobby. it's not actually in Trafalgar Square, of course but only a minute or two walk. Only criticism is that the wi-if doesn't reach the 8th floor, and the bath could be a bit bigger. Oh, so could the TV screen. But it's still the best value for money I've found in this part of London.

Room Tip: Higher floors are a bit quieter and lighter but less chance of accessing wi-if in hit he room?

Dear Euromnlostatsea,

Thank you for the review. Citadines Trafalgar refurbishment was completed in 2012, so am glad you liked the improvements that were made. In regards to the WIFI my apologies this was slow, we have replaced some of the modems and should also be having Fibre Optic installed in the coming weeks. Once again Thank You for the positive review and we look forward to you returning on your next trip to London.

Best Wishes,

This hotel is in the BEST location in London, walking distance to all the major sites. There are 2 underground stations feet away, Charing Cross and Embankment, at present time Embankment is not serving the Bakerloo or Waterloo lines, only District and Circle lines.

The room was very clean and spacious.The bathtub is very slippery, so please use the rubber mat supplied by hotel. They have a great coffee machine in lobby, for 24 hour use, great cappuccinos, espressos and hot chocolates. They also had a water dispenser with both sparkling and still water. There is a Tesco down the street and a Marks & Spencer in Charing Cross station, great for buying sodas, bottle water, croissants, etc.

Oyster cards are a great way to get around London.

I would like to thank all the staff at Citadines, especially Iniku, he always greeted us with a smile.
Next time in London I will definitely stay at Citadines Trafalgar.
