“Large rooms, great location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 July 2014

The Trafalgar has rooms larger than normal for Europe or any other large metropolitan city. I had more than enough room to have several co-workers work in my room. The location is perfect. A short walk to Big Ben or the London Eye. And of course, you are right across the street from the National Portrait Gallery and Trafalgar square. Plenty of restaurants within an easy walk and tube station on the corner.

This is a fabulous hotel with helpful and polite staff. The rooms are a good size and very clean. The location is excellent as it's right on Trafalgar Square and within easy walking distance of many attractions like the London Eye, Buckingham Palace, The Mall, Big Ben, Piccadilly Circus, Soho, Leicester Square etc.
We also sampled the roof top terrace bar with amazing views over London. Priority of the best seats are given to hotel guests which was great. It can be busy when it's hot so you may need to book but we were very lucky.
I would highly recommend this hotel.

The Trafalgar was chosen for it's location (right at the edge of Trafalgar Square) and it's potential view from the rooftop bar. Both these things were outstanding. Such a brilliant location, easily walkable (across the street) from Charing Cross Tube (Piccadilly Line from Heathrow, Change to Bakerloo Line at Piccadilly Circus, one stop to Charing Cross) and the fabulous rooftop bar had views of the whole of London. On a hot day (july) the views from up there were a refreshing escape from the crowds below. The service at front desk was excellent, allowing early check-in and slightly late check-out, the hotel seriously made our visit priceless. It was affordable, less than any other quality hotel I have stayed in London. Seriously, for a boutique hotel with this level of service and amenities in this location, I expected to pay more. Fantastic experience, and we'll be back there in two days! Sweet!

Room Tip: We had a back (courtyard) room, which was likely a lot quieter than those facing the square and the...

Just back from another great stay at The Trafalgar. We love this hotel, set in the heart of London. Had a room looking out over Trafalgar Square which you can't beat. Enjoyable few drinks in the Rockwell bar, great cocktails and service spot on. All in a great stay ! -It's not cheap but you do get what you pay for which isn't always the case at an expensive hotel

Room Tip: Try for an upgrade to a room with a view over Trafalgar Square

I normally stay at this hotel every time I come to London. You really cant beat the location and its a Hilton so I get miles. The decor of the hotel is very chic and clean. The lobby bar is very cool but I would recommend to got to the roof bar which has an excellent view and gets pretty crowded on weekends. The rooms are clean and larger than standard European rooms. The staff is very helpful and they are from all over the world. I would very much recommend this hotel for business and tourism in Central London.

Dear Sir,

Thank you so much for taking the time to provide us with feedback about your recent stay with us. May I say how disappointed I was to read that your experience with us on the Rooftop was not as we intend.

We pride ourselves in Vista on our customer service and I am so sorry to hear that this was not the service we provided to you on your visit to the bar.

Thank you once again for your valued feedback and I do hope that you chose to return to the Trafalgar hotel soon.

Best Regards,

Tom McCarthy

This is a very nice hotel at an ideal location. Walking distance to key locations like Piccadilly Circus and Buckingham Palace, and a block from Charing Cross and Embankment stations. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful, rooms are nice, bar and food are also very good. The only reason I give it a four instead of five is that, at least for my stay, the price was extremely high. Way high. I'm now seeing prices posted for August that are 50% less, so perhaps there is a July premium. Other than that, terrific hotel and location.
