We really enjoyed our stay. The room was beautiful and located within walking distance of all of the attractions we wanted to see. The service was excellent with friendly helpful people every time we needed anything. There is a nice restauraunt in the lobby and a really cool bar on the roof with a great view. I would definitely recommend... More

Stayed here for business and was to stay for the weekend after with my wife. However the room I had was like a prison cell. Old worn carpet with matching ancient walls and furniture. Bed was not Hilton standard comfort. I am surprised that Hilton is associated with this hotel. Wifi not reliable and frustrating, especially if you are there... More

After a trip to the theatre we took an impromptu visit to this bar. It's not a late bar and you have to go through the hotel to get to it but worth it if you can get a seat overlooking Trafalgar Square. The host showed us to the prime location which didn't disappoint. It does get cold but you... More

Another favourite rooftop bar of my choice! Great views and friendly staff! Usual drinks available. Pretty much you can see all the surrounding land marks. Nice in the summer and especially in the evening when all the lights come on. Walkin, smart casual etc

Great location. I mean absolutely great location. The people at the Trafalgar Hilton Hotel were wonderful. They went out of their way to be helpful. The location was perfect. You are right next to Covent Garden and that is a really cool place to be and it is in the middle of the theater district. My wife and I loved... More

This hotel is in a great location - round the corner from Trafalgar Studios which is one of the reasons we chose this hotel. It has a lovely, lively boutique atmosphere. Rooms are clean and modern. Great for short stop over in London!

It was absolutely wonderful to stay in The Trafalgar. Everything was nearby and the hotel staff was very nice and helpful. I would stay again anytime! Spacious room for the three of us and delicious breakfast, which was included to the price.

As part of the Hilton family, I would say this hotel has outdone itself. Gorgeous hotel and is always clean. Staff are friendly and helpful. Loved the Vista Rooftop bar, great view. Its a must when in London. This hotel is central to everything in London and close to the underground. Very close to Buckingham Palace, The National Gallery, and... More

We stayed at the trafalgar hotel last weekend for a short break away. It was very centrally located right in trafalgar square about 10 minutes walk from oxford street and covent garden. The hotel itself was really clean and staff were very friendly. Also the vista rooftop bar is a must and you dont have to wait in the queues... More

What an excellent welcome. It really couldn't have been better. We arrived 3 hours early for check in hoping that we could leave our bags, but we were offered our room straight away, this allowed us to freshen up before going for a drink on the roof top bar. The kind lady on the desk called ahead so we could... More
