“Great Birthday!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 May 2014 via mobile

Great location for theatres, walking to Buckingham Palace. Great underground & train stations near by - easy to get to!
Advised it was for my Birthday & after visiting the roof top bar (an absolute must!) came back to our room to find some cakes with 'Happy Birthday' & some complementary drinks. The rooms are a decent size & have just what you need! Breakfast was amazing! The staff are all so friendly!!
Will definitely consider returning here in the future!!

Stayed May 2014, travelled as a couple

I was lucky enough to spend a work related evening at the Vista rooftop terrace - great service - really nice food and of course the weather was perfect - would recommend the venue but beware it will cost ££££ :-)

Room Tip: Don't go on spec .... you need reservations

This place is great - great night's sleep, good room price for London, delicious food and drink (albeit a bit pricey), exceptional customer service... my only issue was that it is difficult to find. There is no Hilton advertising anywhere outside, so it took us a while to find it.

Smack bang in Trafalgar Square so if you're in London for business or pleasure its in a great spot. The rooftop bar is small and very popular but on a sunny day its a great place to be, if drinks are somewhat on the pricey side (as they are in the main bar downstairs too). The staff were very friendly and did their best to accommodate all my needs so no fault there. The main drawback to the hotel for me was the small dark room. I didn't get to see any other rooms, but the third floor room I had didn't give a view of Trafalgar square and felt very small, dark and old. The rooms have dark furniture that are not "built in" and gives the resemblance of staying at your granny's place when you were a kid. Despite trying to "brighten" the room with colour flashes its not coming off. Rooms need a good overhaul. In summary, good position, good staff, very average room.

Room Tip: Higher floors may be better.

We really enjoyed our stay. Nice spacious rooms, very clean, friendly service, only a short walk to theatres, Buckingham Palace, National Gallery etc. Only disadvantages are: No free internet and a restaurant combined with the bar, lacking privacy and quietness
