“Beautiful room, good location but a tad noisy”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 July 2014

Ask for a quiet room if you are a light sleeper. The room that I had was facing a restaurant across the street that was playing the World Cup games at night. The shouting, honking and general noise can be heard late into the night. Was woken up multiple times in the middle of the night due to honking. Other than that, location is very good, walking distance to most things, so you are definitely paying for the location. Breakfast is nothing special, you will be better off grabbing a sandwich and coffee from any cafes around.

The location and service were top notch. This was our first time in London and we were fortunate to start here. The rooftop lounge provided great views of London. Highly recommend . We will be back.
The hotel was clean and the staff was professional.

I would stay at this hotel again in a heartbeat. Even before I arrived, they responded quickly to my e-mails requesting travel information. Hotel staff continued to be extremely helpful with a wide range of "how do I get there" and "what would you recommend" questions. It's location on Trafalgar Square is excellent to provide easy walking access to many neighborhoods, including the Mall, Covent Garden, West End, Picadilly, and London Eye.

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.
