The Trafalgar Hotel has a brilliant roof top bar, with great views and great service. All the bar staff were friendly and helpful, it was a chilly evening, but there were patio heaters available and plenty of shelter to get out of the wind.

At the Trafalgar Hotel we experienced some really great staff. Team member Austin arranged for soft drinks while we waited just a few minutes for our room to be ready. They were attentive and cautious regarding my daughter's food allergies. A lobby bar team member (sadly, I didn't make note of his name) even sent a snack to our room... More

We booked to stay at this hotel for my 30th Birthday and had been looking forward to it for some time, I have to say we were not disappointed.

This has got to be one of the best locations for a city hotel anywhere. The Traflgar is a Hilton but it has its own unique styling and this theme is carried through from the lobby to the lifts to the bedrooms. The rooms are a decent size and there's a large bathroom with shower and bath. Despite the central... More

This is a great hotel if you want to be close to everything in London. I stayed at this hotel 10 years ago and it made an impression on me back then. It is a minimalist hotel in the sense that the rooms are designed in a minimalist fashion. However; the rooms are really small by any standards, especially as... More

Excellent in many, many ways. From customer services to rooms and locations, we had no complains. Awesome location, very near entrance to charing cross and walking distance to big attractions such as Trafalgar Square, Leicester square, Westminster etc. definitely would be our accommodation of choice on next trips!

We have just returned from an overnight stay, having travelled up from Essex to see a show down The Strand. .If you are looking for somewhere close to Theatreland & all that London can offer then The Trafalgar is perfect, located on the corner of the Square and literally just a short walk from everything - and it has style....

Just come back from a weekend stay at The Trafalgar Hotel. What a fantastic location. All major attractions all in easy walking distance. Room was very spacious, clean and comfortable. The roof terrace bar is amazing...great stay, we will be back.

A short walk from the Underground Charing Cross station and a 10-minute walk to Big Ben and Westminster Abbey. The downside is the front desk is located next to the bar where... More
