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

Perfect location for staying in London within 100m of Trafalgar Square. The entrance supports the name, the bar is nice and the attached pizza restaurant has a good atmosphere. We stayed one night and were offered an upgrade to a suite for £25 which was a bonus, unfortunately the suite meant a slightly larger room, an extra sofa bed and... More

My husband and I stayed at The Grand at Trafalgar Square for 4 nights and we very much enjoyed our stay. This is like a boutique hotel in historic neighborhood. Most buildings in London are old with small rooms. But our room was large, very clean and very comfortable. The bedding was comfortable too. Bathroom was small but it was... More

Stayed here last night for our wedding anniversary excellent location and on first appearance hotel looked perfect. Once checked in room was very small and was put next to noisy lift. It was disappointing at 10:30pm to not be able to get a drink in the hotel bar and when using the toilets in the basement they were very unclean... More

It was clean well stocked, tea and coffee which I always prefer. They put a basket and a bottle of wine in the room for my wife... More

Beautiful building from the outside and nicely laid out inside. Room was small but functional, nicely decorated and clean and we slept really well. Location was amazing - 20 seconds to Trafalgar Square, couple of minutes from Embankment, couple of minutes to two tube stations and surrounded by shops and restuarants. West End is also a 5-10 minute walk away... More
