Well worth keeping an eye out for the deals here, the room rates can vary quite a bit. This hotel is comfortable, clean and modern. The staff are friendly and helpful and there is a good range on the breakfast buffet. One drawback for the business traveller is that the dining room doesn't open for breakfast until 7.00. Most importantly... More

Overall this hotel is centrally located, with a friendly staff and is well appointed. However, some of the standard rooms are quite small. Ours was tucked in the corner and almost impossible for two people to function. For the price we were disappointed in the room size, but everything else was perfect, had our stay been longer we have likely... More

Located in the West End, 5 to 10 mins walk to most theaters. 5 mins walk to Chinatown and Metro. Many restaurants and cafes in the area. You can also walk to Oxford Street, about 15 to 20 mins walk. Price is on the high but for its location and the standard of the room - very clean, good shower,... More

I really enjoyed my stay in room 511. It was a little on the small side but being by myself on a business trip it worked. The room would have been too small for two people. The front desk was helpful when needed and housekeeping was top notch. Loved the shower and great views over the National Gallery. Will definitely... More

I would agree with other reviews that this hotel is clean and tidy and is a great location. Perhaps we were just very unlikely to find an assortment of staff who whilst very pleasant as individuals had little or no idea how to successfully offer hospitality to its customers. We arrived on the Saturday of Gay Pride (unplanned) thus had... More

The Royal Trafalgar Hotel is ideally located near Trafalgar Square close to Covent Garden and Leicester Square. The hotel is in excellent condition and has lots of amenities except parking. We chose to not drive in London and had no problems getting around with buses and taxis. The staff was very attentive and helpful. When we return to London, we... More

Located on a side street off Trafalgar Square couldn't find a more central yet quiet location if you tried. I stayed here for four nights in June. The staff from reception to chamber maids were delightful - extremely helpful, friendly and polite. My standard room was immaculate and although not large, all one could wish for in a central.

Stayed at this hotel for a celebratory break and couldn't have chosen a better central location hotel. From the time we arrived in a taxi there was a gentleman to greet us and help with luggage and the receptionist was first class and informed us we had been upgraded as it was our anniversary. The room was very clean and... More

The hotel is in a gem of a location close to Picadilly, Leicester Square, Covent Garden, Trafalgar Square. Museums, restaurants and theatres on your doorstep. Most impressive was the level of customer service which was really beyond the call of duty. The front desk staff were ever friendly, charming, happy and helpful. Thank you for all you did for us...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
There aren’t many genuinely quiet streets right in the heart of London. But they do exist - and we’re on one of them. In fact, you might never guess that Piccadilly Circus and Leicester Square are within a few minutes’ walk. The Royal Trafalgar has the City on one side, Whitehall on the other and history everywhere you look. The National Gallery is literally next door, as is the square that shares our name. ... more   less
