This was my second stay at The Trafalgar. Being able to step outside straight into the centre of London is amazing. The hotel itself is starting to look a bit shabby, stains on the carpet, wobbly taps etc. Breakfast, which used to be cooked to order is a "new concept". Nothing hot just some buns with egg and crispy bacon.... More

We recently stayed at the Trafalgar Hotel London Hilton which is right on Trafalgar Square - a terrific location close to attractions, restaurants, shopping and transit. The common areas of the hotel were pretty and modern, however the rooms could use a little "TLC" updating. Although we had notified the hotel of our early arrival on an international flight via...

The position is the best feature of this Hotel & it is true staff try to be very helpful. The rooms are comfortable but somewhat dated & worn. The biggest disappointment on my most recent visit was the change in the breakfast arrangements where you can no longer obtain a cooked breakfast & as one fellow diner said "you can't... More

I had a really awesome & relaxing stay at this lovely hotel. The staff were all so friendly, professional and accommodating of my requests. It is well located and was so easy for me to get around London from there, with easy access to taxi's & the Underground. The decor is trendy and my room was always clean & tidy.... More

unless you pay over the odds for anything but the basic deluxe (should be done by trading standards for misleading) deluxe it is anything but! So disappointed with our stay here. It is a great location but our room 314 was awful. Did ask to upgrade after we got to the room but was treated like a second class citizen... More

I always stay in the Piccadilly area when in London for business and have stayed at all the nearby hotels. I can't quite put my finger on what was average about this place as the rooms were reasonably large for London and the service friendly enough. However, the restaurant area isn't inviting and the lounge has the feel of a... More

I stayed recently for the second time. This is a solid hotel for those with a few days to kill in London. It is super central to everything, comfy beds, good service, nice shower and bathroom. Just watch the minibar at GBP4.50 (AUD$9) per bottle of water and GBP14.50 (AUD$28) per day for wi-fi you can easily rack up an... More

My title says it all... walking distance to pretty much everywhere you would want to go to while on a short stay in London. Rooms where pretty spacious and OK, nothing fancy at all. Bar in the lobby area offers good tapas and drinks. Took the taxi driver some time though to figure out where the hotel was, let alone... More

my rating is purposely average. the hotel is terrible but it could be so great. I intend to give a fair review of what could be, one of the best hotels in London, after they have had time to respond and give an honest comment on how they intend to drastically improve the experience of a stay at their expensive...
