Stayed here last March 26-April 1 for a total of 6 nights with my siblings and cousins. There were 9 of us and got 4 bedrooms. The rooms were big and spacious, bathrooms were nice and clean, staff was great. The only downside was there was no free internet in the room. The hotel is not really cheap, so would... More

We loved this hotel! The central location made it very easy for us to walk to everything we wanted to see or easy access to cabs, tube, and buses. The view from the rooftop restaurant/bar is spectacular! It was a great way to begin our trip. The room was quite spacious (for London), clean and quiet! And last but not... More

I loved the hotel. It was a super location. Literally stepped outside and we were there or walking distance to wherever we wanted to go. It was surprisingly quite so our sleep was great. The staff were wonderful. We would stay at this hotel again for sure.

Great location for easy access to all london has to offer. Rooms modern and clean. Fanstastic roof top bar with great views. Breakfast (which was included in the price) was perfectly adequate. I would definitely recommend.

I stayed here as part of my pre wedding celebrations. The hotel is in an amazing location for the West Ends bars, restaurants and of course theatres. We were offered a free drink by the hotel and the bar area is lovely and modern with prices reasonable for the centre of London. I would definitely stay here again.

We were recently on "holiday" from the states, and decided on The Trafalgar based on previous good reviews and its location to Westminster Abbey, Piccadilly Circus, and the tube station. We are a family of four, with a 16yo son and an 18yo daughter. Because of this, we decided to book two rooms. The cost for both rooms was around... More

Agree with the last report - have been up to Vista and the views are great and it's fun on a nice day, but the place is mismanaged and it's a trying experience for two persons to obtain a reservation - no bookings 5 pm or later for parties of less than 6, and walkins face a long wait if... More

Was very pleased with the quality of accommodation and the personal service we received. Agustin was very accommodating and helped make our stay very comfortable. Got the room during the flash sale and got a room upgrade as well so more than value for money! Will recommend to all as a perfect base to explore London. Family friendly and very... More

Me and my boyfriend recently spent a night here, nice clean bedroom and bathroom. Hotel staff are friendly and nice. You have to go to the roof top bar! Felt like we were on holiday abroad! Really nice hotel and great location will be coming back!

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.
