Neighborhood
Trafalgar Square / Embankment
With its iconic Nelson’s Column, majestic oversized lions and brightly-lit fountains, Trafalgar Square is not just considered the heart of this bustling London hub, but the very core of the city itself. Beyond this esteemed gathering place are more famous icons, as well as a disproportionate numbers of the city’s most popular cultural attractions including the National Gallery and many West End theaters. Along the way to these major sites are quiet lanes and antiquated pubs to discover, as well as riverside vistas to enjoy on the embankment. With a calendar full of celebratory events, any time of year is a fine time to visit.

Had a great stay!! Only negative would be the polyester in the sheets - makes for a hot sleep. Otherwise AMAZING!! The desk staff were great. 200 characters is too long for me to find enough to say. Thanks so much!

Walkable to many attractions like Theatre area, Leicester Square, Covent Gardens, China Town, Piccadilly, River, Pall Mall,Buckingham Palace. We didn’t need the underground at all. Used open top buses though.
