I cannot believe people are describing this hotel as 'luxurious'? Maybe luxurious compared to a hostel.. This is the worst hotel I have ever visited, I say visited and not stayed because I spent 10 minutes in the room then checked out because it was so vile. When I first entered the room I was greeted by a wardrobe that... More

We stay at The Trafalgar when visiting the theatre, you couldn't ask for a better location, a short walk to the theatres & most of the the major sights are within easy walking distant, treat yourself to a stroll through the Admiralty Arches & down The Mall to Buckingham Palace a nice 20 minute stroll. You get exactly what you... More

Just returned from a week long stay at the Trafalgar. I agree with the other reviewers about this hotel..first of all it is a wonderful location from which to explore London. Secondly, the rooms are a tad dated but absolutely functional and ours was clean every day we were there. The thing that sets this hotel apart to me was... More

This was a fabulous hotel. The rooftop Vista cocktail bar is fantastic with probably the best views over Trafalgar Square and the great London attractions. Great rooms, great service, great breakfast, really comfortable bed.

I visited for a business trip and brought my family. The location is fantastic! Walking distance to the theater district and it's great restaurants which was a great way to avoid London traffic. From this location we walked or took public transportation to all the great attractions of London. The room we had was fairly large compared to others I... More

Despite the friendly and eager to please staff on the front desk, my most recent stay at this hotel has left me vowing never to return. Having arrived late and straight off a 36 hour flight all I wanted to do was get something to eat and go to sleep. But my room had a fault - the power would... More

Located in Trafalgar Square, is a great location for any of the tourist attractions or the theatre district. Friendly, helpful staff, comfortable rooms and a relaxed atmosphere. The hotel is part of the Hilton brand, but this is not overly evident.

We stayed at the Tafalgar because it is a Hilton Property and were not disappointed. The hotel is modern, trendy, clean, and what a great location! It is on Trafalgar Square which is a 10-20 min everywhere! You can walk to buckingham palace in 10 mins, Big Ben in 10 mins, Picadilly circus in 15 mins, and the west end... More

Stayed in this hotel now 4 times in as many years and it never fails to leave me with a smile. The location is perfect for just about everything and the staff are great and very friendly . Will continue to keep this one on my favourite list. Roof terrace isn't always open but if it is well worth a... More

I love the location, the attitude of the staff and the breakfast. The rooftop bar has spectacular views of London with some yummy food. I disliked the stains on the carpet in the room, the dirty bathroom that had been recently used and required housekeeping to put in fresh towels, the broken mirror in the room, the limited room service...
