Having stayed in this hotel 3 years ago I recommended this for a weekend away with my sisters and mother. From the moment we checked in we were greeted by very unwelcoming staff, the bar staff were slow, half hour to receive drinks we had ordered, room service delivered without a knife and fork, and then told we hadn't paid...

Great location with easy walking to the sights, theater district and train station as well. The hotel was clean and the staff was friendly and helpful. Service in the lounge could have been a bit more attentive.

We stayed at the grand at trafalgar Square for 4nights and had a good experience. It may not be as Classic or posh as the nearby corintha hotel but it is a much cheaper option that is great if you want a central rather quiet location with good standards. The breakfast is quite small and not that great, overall the... More

Excellent hotel for the money in this area. Clean, staff friendly and efficient and room just right. Fortunate to have a street view and soundproofing on the windows very effective. Lobby is grand and Boyd's is welcoming and very comfortable. Will definitely stay here again.

Have gone away for a weekend in London for birthday treat. Booked hotel and west end show. Great value so wasn't expecting much in the hotel. But it is lovely. The staff are very friendly and warm and the room is just great for what we need. The location couldn't be any better. Will definitely be returning.

We only stayed one night but the location is great as you can see a lot of things in the area such as Buckingham Palace and of course Trafalgar Square. The room was nice with lots of room and it is a really old building. They use an electronic check-in system which is pretty neat.

In the heart of London with hotels twice the price and more surrounding it makes this hotel a good value if you don't mind a hotel that needs a little remodeling. Trafalgar Square and Big Ben next to hotel and Covent Gardens is 10 minute walk.

Front desk guy Adam was very helpful to our family with kids. Helped with our enormous luggage with kids. Gave us a room with microwave and fridge at no extra cost considering we had baby food. It was perfect location.
