Thoroughly enjoyed our stay, which was bought for us by our daughter as a ruby wedding present. The room we had was plenty big enough, although having said that, it was one of the club suites on the top floor so I can't comment on other rooms. There was a lovely complimentary basket of food and wine awaiting us and... More

My wife, 6-year-old son, and I recently stayed at The Grand for two nights. I agree with all the reviews that refer to the location -- no doubt it is in a great place for London sightseeing. The hotel lobby was nice, the Italian restaurant located in the hotel was above average, and they included free wifi without bandwidth limitations.... More

So many positive reviews?? How I wonder. Maybe all employees only posted. Let me tell you. This hotel maybe at a good , but the rooms are as tiny as a rats nest. The window opened to sewer pipes. Please see picture attached. So for the price you pay. You can do much better.

We stayed here in June for a night out to the theatre, and using the web we got a great deal. The room was modern and clean, but a bit hidden away down a couple of narrow corridors. Saying that, there was a big festival on in Trafalgar square and we couldn't hear it from our room. The hotel is... More

Spent 3 nights here as a base for sightseeing - perfect location, beautiful hotel. We walked the whole 'Monopoly Board ' of London, and we were within walking distance to all the major theatres. Our small room with double bed was more than adequate in size. The only marks against, and they are not deal breakers, is that there was... More

We only had one day in London so this hotel was the perfect location as the Ho-ho bus was just steps away from the hotel. Also a 10 minute walk from Picadilly Circus. The hotel staff was very nice, rooms were clean, hotel was quiet and got a good night sleep. We got a triple room since we had our... More

This was our 2nd stay at The Grand, we were so impressed by it last year that we decided to stay again. I gave it 5 stars before but I have to downgrade that to a 4 this time as the view from our room was no where near as fabulous as the one we had last time (basically the... More

This is the BEST hotel to stay in when visiting London. It is within walking distance of most major attractions in London. example... London eye, Trafalgar Square, Big Ben, Piccadilly Circus area, Westminster Abbey and National Gallery Museum... It's also within a block of the local subway and train station. So when flying into London, you can take the subway... More

On entering this hotel it was grand as its name, so too the bar. Drinks were as expensive as any other hotel of this standard but you had to pay for any nut, crisp etc unlike other hotels. The staff were friendly but my only fault was with the grooming of the staff. The waitress who served us looked like... More

We were delighted to spend the final 4 nights of our trip at The a Grand at Trafalgar Square after traveling for several weeks throughout Europe. The reception staff was exceptional! We were greeted by the staff with smiles and asked if we needed anything upon entering or exiting the hotel. They attended to our every need and provided travel,... More
