We stayed at this hotel for one night in conjunction with tickets to the theatre. The hotel is situated directly oppisite trafaglar square which provides great access to a number of attractions in the heart of London. In our case the theatre area was only a 10 minute walk away. Check in was a pleasant experience and the receptionist was... More

My husband and I were here for sightseeing and fun. We chose The Trafalgar because of its location and the fact that it is a Hilton property. We were treated exceptionally well from start to finish even though we had snagged a great flash sale rate from the Hilton website. We looked out on Nelson's Column and the Lions of... More

From check in to trying to get tea and snack, this place fails. My husband is deaf. They noticed this on check in and forced him to sign a statement regarding his safety in the event of an emergency. The desk clerk kept referring to it as "The Plan" but this plan was never explained to us. We both felt... More

This is probably the best hotel I have ever been. The staff is friendly, the rooms are neat and tidy(though my room's view was some inner yard and other rooms windows). Location - perfect - on Trafalgar square, The National gallery is just outside, Big Ben is 2 blocks away, Buckhingham, Hide Park, The Eye etc. - 15-20 minutes walk.... More

We were given an overnight stay in London as a present, so cannot comment on the price of the rooms, but we were in a standard room at the back which was quiet. The room was much like a premier inn but in need of some sprucing up. The location is fantastic being on the corner of Trafalgar Square. The... More

Stayed here for last two nights of a month long trip around the UK. Basically hotel does everything well. Nice, clean and comfortable rooms. Perfect location for seeing major sites around London.

Currently writing this from the dire room 319. This really is a not very good hotel. I checked in earlier with a woman called Kate, who didn't make eye contact, demanded my credit card and signature and threw the key at me. Maybe she was having a bad day. The room is so underwhelming that a Premier Inn would even... More

If location and price are your top priority, this place really can't be beat. That's really all we cared about so it's worth the 4 stars to us, but I can see why people would give less. The hotel has an odd theme of house music and neon lights that just don't seem to fit and the staff while nice... 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.
