A landmark itself, Charing Cross opened in 1865 and remains one of the most well-places hotels. A few steps to Trafalgar Square. A minute's stroll to London's West End, A stone's throw away from The National Gallery and so much more. And when exploring more of the city, Charing Cross station is right next door.

Location perfect for central London by the Thames. Staff were excellent - special mention to Ron, the concierge, who helped us find our way around. Rooms and breakfast are very good and set us up for a busy weekend. Thank you. Love to come back.

Wonderful holiday in West London - walking distance from everything! Right by Trafalgar Square, Piccadilly, a walk across the bridge to the London Eye, Big Ben, Parliament, a walk to Harrod's, Savoy hotel and tons of pubs in the area. The hotel was very quiet, spacious, clean, comfortable, warm bed. The breakfast was lovely and plentiful. Be sure to order eggs the way you like when you sit down - they take a bit longer for poached eggs or omelettes), and worth it. Great location and really nice staff.

We celebrated a milestone anniversary with our children and their partners with a week in London. This hotel was the perfect lodging to accommodate the 11 of us. Rooms were comfortable, quiet, and spacious enough for a week's stay. Both heating and air conditioning worked well. Location was perfect for walking in all directions, attending theater, a variety of dining options, and for utilizing public transport. I cannot say enough about the staff. Every person we encountered from Reception to Housekeeping to Dining was cheerful, helpful and kind. The breakfast buffet was a great way to start our day--bountiful coffee and variety of offerings. Diet Coke was even available.

Walked in from station at 6pm - SO CLOSE to station - v convenient. Up the beautiful staircase and into restaurant - no booking got seated straight away. Lovely service from Renata and her team. Lovely wine and amazing food - would highly recommend - incredible garlic mushrooms, yummy triple cooked chips, great English salad with lovely light dressing

I ate here on Wednesday evening post theatre. The service from Renata was impeccable, friendly but not intrusive and she made us feel very special as we were celebrating a family birthday. The food was delicious and prices were very reasonable. We will definitely be returning, thank you for a wonderful experience.

If you are in London, for business or pleasure, this is a very good choice. Great atmosphere and very conveniently located. Welcome at reception was fantastic and the rooms are nice. It’s a little noisy at times, but that is what you could expect of you want to stay right in the middle of the city. Breakfast was also a very great experience- thank you Tanya and Katya. When next in London, I will be back in this hotel

Had the best time here for afternoon tea. Delicious tea and snacks, with an amazing view and interior to top it all off. Renata was absolutely amazing and a sweetheart, we enjoyed talking to her and she really took care of us. Would love to come back next time I’m in London, such a great place!
