The Trafalgar St.James is a sanctuary of style rest and play on the edge of Trafalgar Square in the bustle of St. James SW1. This historic building hosts 131 bedrooms including 3 exquisite suites and a number of venues to eat, drink, work or play. Rockwell is a plant-filled hideaway to sip on botanical cocktails and escape reality with fantasy. The Rooftop has an inimitable city view, complete with alfresco and canopy-covered seating. The sky-high space lends itself as a year-round experience.

To start the hotel is in a perfect location in London. Walking distance to almost everything. The rooms were great and very clean everyday. All that is great for whatever you may be doing in London but what sets this hotel above and beyond was the staff. Everyone was extremely nice and helpful. The concierge’s were like your personal assistants for your stay in London. You didn’t have to seek them out. They’d see you in the lobby in the morning and ask what you had planned for the day. As you told them they would be booking things for you and getting reservations for you at restaurants for later that evening. I literally can’t say enough about these people. Absolutely amazing staff. Excellent experience at the hotel all the way around.

Hotel's Favorite
Lets start with the location, perfect, it was in the heart of everything, but not at all noisy, you can easily get to everywhere you wanted and the underground was just a 2 minute walk through Trafalgar Square. The hotel: Perfect again, well appointed - we stayed in the St James King rooms - had a partial view of the Square and the other couple a view of the London Eye. Great sized beds and a lovely additional seated area. The mini fridge with water and coke was a great touch, and the coffee machine made starting the day just perfect. Could not fault the cleanliness either. The small touches, like the added shower supplies and the turn-down service, where water and glass were positioned for the night, just added to the overall experience. We drank and ate in the Rockwell the first night, as you'd expect they are London prices, but the attention of staff to go over and above and interact, making your experience more pleasant made it even better. We tried the Rooftop the first night but couldn't get in, however the next night we were lucky - Although we didn't enjoy it, too noisy, the seats were rather low for a high table and we couldn't wait to leave in all honesty. Though it could have been made more pleasant if the music was turned down a little and the other guests weren't so loud (our personal opinion) Breakfast: a huge selection was included in our stay, continental, coffee/tea and hot options, you could pay extra if you wanted a special breakfast, such as eggs Benedict, but you didn't really need to to be honest, we managed to find plenty to eat and again the staff were very attentive and remembered personal choices from the previous day. We would highly recommend this hotel, for location, service and cleanliness. The front of house staff could not do enough for you and were always checking everything was ok. Would not hesitate to stay again.

Dear ssbz, Thank you very much for taking the time to write such extensive and lovely feedback about our property. I was delighted to read how much you have enjoyed your stay with us. I can only agree with you that the location is superb, whether you prefer to walk or take the public transportation, everything is just around the corner from Trafalgar Square. Our spacious bedrooms are very unique compared to other London hotels and we are indeed very proud of them as they offer full comfort to our valued guests. I am glad you mentioned the complimentary minibar and coffee facilities, we believe that complimentary refreshments make your stay just that bit more comfortable. I am glad you enjoyed Rockwell greatly, I will be gladly passing on your kind words about the Team. I am sorry to hear that you were not able to access The Rooftop on your first try, it is an extremely popular bar due to the location. The atmosphere is often quite lively, and as we are aware that this does not suit everybody, we keep Rockwell as a more peaceful sanctuary. The Team is working really hard to provide a large variety of options to spoil all our guests for their first meal of the day and to personalise their breakfast experience. I truly hope we will have the chance to welcome you back to The Trafalgar St James in the future. Kind regards, Antonia Balogh Duty Manager

Our experience at this hotel was amazing! I booked a surprise stay for 2 nights for my boyfriends 40th birthday. They allowed me to have some balloons delivered to the hotel prior to our arrival and kindly placed this in our room along with a complementary birthday cake (which tasted delicious) and a birthday card. Our room was spacious and clean with a huge comfy bed. The location of this hotel is perfect as it’s close to many theatres and restaurants. The staff went above and beyond to make our stay perfect and allowed us to check out later when requested. The breakfast buffet was a highlight for us, they served fresh food which tasted amazing. I would like to say a huge thank you to Lucian (Guest Relations Manager) who answered all my queries regarding ballon decoration for the room. I will definitely be coming to stay here again in future and recommend this hotel for couples. Thank you to all the staff at The Trafalgar St James!

Perfect location, excellent size and appointment of rooms. Comfy bed, crisp white linen, quiet rooms (triple glazed). Ticks most boxes. Roof garden bar/restaurant excellent Being able to walk most places is a huge plus too. Would I stay again - Yes. Would I recommend - yes. Improvements, a few more coat hangers in the room would be good, but a minor thing

Dear 13_Blackwater, Thank you very much for your lovely review about The Trafalgar St James. I am delighted to read that your stay with us was so enjoyable and hope that it was the first to many more. I am glad you have enjoyed your bedroom to the fullest. We are truly proud to offer such large bedrooms throughout the hotel as we know how challenging that can be in central London. Having Trafalgar Square on our doorstep is truly spectacular, furthermore our location offers most attractions to be only a short walk away. I am glad you have enjoyed some lovely cocktails at the Rooftop bar with the beautiful London skyline in the background. Please rest assured that i will pass on your feedback regarding having extra Hangers in the room to the head of housekeeping. I truly hope we will have the chance to welcome you back to The Trafalgar St James in the future. Kind regards, Nasrullah Khan Duty manager

Such a beautiful hotel & the location is everything. My boyfriend and I were able to walk pretty much everywhere! Room was amazing and super clean. The staff was also very helpful, I needed a last minute Covid test for my return home and our concierge knew exactly where to direct me.
