“Great location”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

The Trafalgar Hilton located on Trafalgar Square is within walking distance of 90% of the attractions we wanted to see in London. Rooms clean and well looked after. Staff extremely helpfull and always available. Room rates are very reasonable considering the location! My wife and I will return to this hotel the next time we are in London.

If you want to stay in a five star hotel in London that is ideally located, this is the place to stay. My husband and I recented stayed five nights at the Trafalgar Hotel before getting on a cruise ship. Although part of the Hilton chain of hotels it has no signage to indicate that, but your Hilton Honors status is acknowledged and appreciated. The staff is great - very friendly and very helpful. I liked the fact that they would greet us each morning and each afternoon when we returned to our room. The room was lovely, definitely larger than many hotels rooms I've stayed in throughout Europe. The hotel is spotless and there was never any noise. The rooftop bar is fun and the views are amazing. Breakfasts were delicious and again the staff was welcoming and responsive to any requests. Finally, the location couldn't be better - we were right across from Trafalgar Square - in the heart of everything - you can walk to basically all the major sites and attractions and a tube station is right out the front door if distance is a factor. This is the second time we have stayed at this property and I can't imagine staying anywhere else when we visit London!

Room Tip: Higher floors minimize any possible street noise.

Came to London for a week and chose this hotel based on location, rooftop bar (incidentally ranked top 10 in the world). It is a trendy 'almost' boutique hotel with impeccable rooms.

Certainly a place where you are happy to invite friends... and so we did. Booked a corner of the rooftop bar, had a reunion and I believe all 20 of us walked out of there very impressed with the general feel being A+: views, quality of F&B, service.

Very memorable stay and just a 5 minute walk from St James Park, one of the worlds top ten parks. Great for families, romance or business. Very Unique in that sense. Truly a great place. Thank you.

Room Tip: Ask for a high corner room overlooking Trafalgar square with a side view of the Queens arch.

Nipped in for a drink at the street-level bar late one weekend night - funky ad relaxing place - but the service was very slow, then very intrusive and then paying took nearly 15 minutes. The staff were not exactly apologetic about this either - and there were 7 of them and only 5 customers. It's a usefully situated and cool
place but the service has certainly deteriorated since I was in here about a year ago.

This is a great hotel for a number of reasons ... location and the staff however are its standout features. I want to give it 5-stars as we enjoyed our stay very much but can't as the rooms need upgrading in our opinion but the room we had was more than acceptable, even given the noise from the rooftop bar each night.

On location .. everything is close by, be it buses or metro straight outside the door, restaurants or supermarket across the road. London's many key attractions simply a stroll away including theatre in Convent Garden or the excellent shopping of Regent & Oxford Streets.

On staff .. polite, attentive, accommodating! Thanks Michael @ the rooftop bar for introducing us to Italian beer. Brilliant time sitting up there watching London do its thing. The view can't be matched.

On hotel .. it's trendy and therefore modern so if you're looking for a more traditional English decor experience, look elsewhere if you must. All in all, semi-tired room aside, can not fault the hotel. Thank you to all the staff for making our stay in London special. We were mum, dad & a 6 year old boy. We'll be back for sure.

Our stay at the Trafalgar Hotel was very pleasant. Although the building was of the times, the interior was very modern. The staff was most helpful and quite enjoyable to visit with. Our room was spacious and clean. The top of the hotel has a nice outside bar that overlooks Trafalgar Square. The hotel itself is within walking distance of many landmarks. We enjoyed the breakfast each morning served in the basement. The fruit and pastries were delicious.
