This hotel is handy for pall mall and Charing Cross. The views on the sixth floor are amazing of Big Ben and the London eye. The business meeting room was spacious had great facilities and the staff had very high standards for its customers. A great place to be on business.

Having stayed in quite a few different, extremely central, premium hotels in London I found this the most disappointing. I knew of The Trafalgar having used the superb bars on the ground floor and roof terrace so thought I'd give the hotel itself a go. There's nothing remarkable to complain about other that it's a multitude of small things. From... More

This has to be one of the best locations in London, right on the corner of Trafalgar Square and the Mall. Very nice rooms, and a good size for London. The breakfast buffet is good, and the staff very helpful.

The room was bigger than I was expecting for the location & some of the other reviews. It was clean, tidy & comfortable. We were on the first floor overlooking the street but we could hardly notice the traffic noise due to great sound proofing. Staff were friendly & helpful. Drinks were quite expensive, but so is everywhere in London.... More

Yes there may have been a mix up with our reservation, but having at least 1 room booked and the hotel being overbooked, the experience of the people on reception, particularly the duty supervisor and senior management need to seriously look at themselves. Final nail in the coffin was being charged cancellation fees when I decided enough was enough. Overbooked?... More

Staying in St. James's

Neighborhood Profile
St. James's
Perennially fashionable since the days of Henry VIII, the aristocratic “Clubland” of St James's is a premier destination for high end craft and bespoke design. Here you’ll lose count of the Royal Warrants (which indicate that the Royal Family patronizes the establishment) seen in shop front windows, even during a short stroll to bordering Green Park or St James’s Park. With the brightly lit and constantly buzzing junction of Piccadilly Circus at its northeast corner and none of Central London too far away, this is an surprisingly central and accessible part of town, especially given its prosperous demeanor.
