I have stayed here twice, once with my boyfriend and just recently with my parents. It is perfect for site seeing as most of the major attractions are within walking distance. It is pricey but worth the cost for convenience and quality.

I stayed here for one night in July. Very helpful staff at check in and had my room available at 12pm, which was a bonus as I didn't expect it until 2pm. The room was a good size with tall ceilings and a very good air conditioning unit. Bathroom, again a good size and very clean. The best bit for... More

I Travel a Lot to London for Business, but this was the First time that All the Family was there. We Stayed at the Trafalgar Hilton Hotel for 5 nights from 29 June until 04 July 2016. The Proximity of the Hotel towards the Touristic Areas of London is Outstanding. A small walk could lead you in minutes to the... More

Effectively being charged twice for my stay. Charged £235 for the stay which is fine. But also have a pending charge of another £235. Which has resulted in me having to use my overdraft. I found this on my online banking, I wasn't informed by the hotel/hotels bank.

London is a huge city. There is no such thing as one hotel that is perfect for all tourist attractions. The Trafalgar is at Trafalgar Square which is a significant London attraction. It is also within walking distance to many of London s other major sites. Most importantly it is right on top of the Charing Cross underground station. Good... More

Staying in St. James's

Neighborhood Profile
St. James's
Perennially fashionable since the days of Henry VIII, the aristocratic “Clubland” of St James's is a premier destination for high end craft and bespoke design. Here you’ll lose count of the Royal Warrants (which indicate that the Royal Family patronizes the establishment) seen in shop front windows, even during a short stroll to bordering Green Park or St James’s Park. With the brightly lit and constantly buzzing junction of Piccadilly Circus at its northeast corner and none of Central London too far away, this is an surprisingly central and accessible part of town, especially given its prosperous demeanor.
