We received a warm welcome from Jesus who escorted us to the terrace. They reserved us a table with an amazing view over Trafalgar Square, Amit was very polite and knowledgeable, with a strong attention to.the details. We spent an amazing afternoon between cakes and tea like Alice in Wonderland. Thanks also to the lovely Sofia and Hayley!

The young lady Natalia who served us was so lovely, she chatted to us and made sure we were happy. She was telling us about her auntie who only liked Yorkshire... More

We had afternoon tea in the terrace restaurant, the staff were friendly and helpful, we took our children 9&7 and we all felt welcome and enjoyed the atmosphere. Sandwiches were on the large side but delicious. Scones were very nice the cakes were all good. We were all full and satisfied when done.

The room was over looking the The Strand. The hotel location is great, very close to Trafalgar Square. Would definitely stay here again, and would also recommend it to anyone who... More

First time at the Amba, very impressed with the service and accommodation. The location is a real bonus as walking distance to many of London's attractions and transport links. Nicely furnished not to modern not too traditional

Could not fault anything. Charming receptionists. Comfortable room (when we'd turned the heating down!). Excellent breakfast. Very convenient location for visits we planned to make and surprisingly quiet..

Staying in Trafalgar Square / Embankment

Neighborhood Profile
Trafalgar Square / Embankment
With its iconic Nelson’s Column, majestic oversized lions and brightly-lit fountains, Trafalgar Square is not just considered the heart of this bustling London hub, but the very core of the city itself. Beyond this esteemed gathering place are more famous icons, as well as a disproportionate numbers of the city’s most popular cultural attractions including the National Gallery and many West End theaters. Along the way to these major sites are quiet lanes and antiquated pubs to discover, as well as riverside vistas to enjoy on the embankment. With a calendar full of celebratory events, any time of year is a fine time to visit.
