Located on a side street off Trafalgar Square couldn't find a more central yet quiet location if you tried. I stayed here for four nights in June. The staff from reception to chamber maids were delightful - extremely helpful, friendly and polite. My standard room was immaculate and although not large, all one could wish for in a central. London hotel. The well designed bathroom had a spacious rainforest shower. My only complaint is that it is almost impossible to close the doors to the rooms quietly. They bang shut, and have no soundproofing so that you hear every exit and entrance to neighboring rooms.
I chose the hotel for its location, and during my stay there walked everywhere - museums, theaters, restaurants, concerts. The hotel has its own restaurant, but there are plenty of restaurants nearby, as well as branches of Marks & Spencer and Selfridges food stores five minutes walk away where you can buy fresh salads, fruit, sandwiches and much more to make up your own picnics. St. Jame's Park complete with lawns, lakes, ducks and swans, the ideal spot for a picnic, is also few minutes walk away.
The internet access is free throughout the hotel.
As a woman traveling alone I felt cared for and safe.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- There aren’t many genuinely quiet streets right in the heart of London. But they do exist - and we’re on one of them. In fact, you might never guess that Piccadilly Circus and Leicester Square are within a few minutes’ walk. The Royal Trafalgar has the City on one side, Whitehall on the other and history everywhere you look. The National Gallery is literally next door, as is the square that shares our name. ... more less
