This hotel has everything - great location and great above and beyond service. We were there during a 10k run with all the streets around it closed and yet the hotel staff secured taxi transportation and helped us with luggage over Trafalgar Square. This kind of service is worth any price. The rooms while hot large, are comfortable, very clean... More

The Trafalgar has rooms larger than normal for Europe or any other large metropolitan city. I had more than enough room to have several co-workers work in my room. The location is perfect. A short walk to Big Ben or the London Eye. And of course, you are right across the street from the National Portrait Gallery and Trafalgar square.... More

This is a fabulous hotel with helpful and polite staff. The rooms are a good size and very clean. The location is excellent as it's right on Trafalgar Square and within easy walking distance of many attractions like the London Eye, Buckingham Palace, The Mall, Big Ben, Piccadilly Circus, Soho, Leicester Square etc. We also sampled the roof top terrace...

The Trafalgar was chosen for it's location (right at the edge of Trafalgar Square) and it's potential view from the rooftop bar. Both these things were outstanding. Such a brilliant location, easily walkable (across the street) from Charing Cross Tube (Piccadilly Line from Heathrow, Change to Bakerloo Line at Piccadilly Circus, one stop to Charing Cross) and the fabulous rooftop...

This is a very nice hotel at an ideal location. Walking distance to key locations like Piccadilly Circus and Buckingham Palace, and a block from Charing Cross and Embankment stations. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful, rooms are nice, bar and food are also very good. The only reason I give it a four instead of five is that,... More

Overall, I enjoyed my stay at The Trafalgar and have no complaints. The location is very convenient in the city, though touristy, and the rooms were large and well appointed. Only real complaint is the 'W' like styling. Does not seem to fit the hotel. The Good: -Central location (though touristy) -Friendly staff -Large rooms, especially for London -Clean and... More

Have stayed at the Trafalgar (Hilton) at least 10 times. The staff is superb. They are accommodating and helpful in every way. The hotel has a popular first floor bar and a roof top bar that has THE BEST view of central London. It can be difficult getting a table in the bar, so reserve your table when you check... More
