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. Reborn in summer 2017, our historic building hosts 131 bedrooms including 15 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 scape reality with fantasy. Open all day, we invite guests and Londoners alike to join us. The Rooftop is a space for sipping individually crafted cocktails and drinking in the inimitable city view. Complete with alfresco and canopy-covered seating, the sky-high space lends itself as a year-round experience.

We stayed at this hotel two years ago (December, 2018) and did not write a review at the time, but we feel this hotel deserves one. The rooms are comfortable, quiet, clean, and trendy. The hotel is in an excellent location and the staff aims to please by going above and beyond to help with any need a guest may have.

Hotel's Favorite
What can I say. Perfect location in London, fantastic hotel and very professional and helpful team that make your stay special. All the major attractions are very accessible from this location and most are within walking distance. The hotel is well maintained, very clean and modern and has everything you need. The rooftop restaurant and bar was wonderful for breakfast with its great views looking out over Trafalgar. I wouldn’t hesitate in returning, worth every penny and would have loved to have stayed longer.

This was the perfect Post lockdown Escape. I booked the Trafalgar hotel, part of the Curio collection under the Hilton umbrella using my points as a Hilton member and from the moment we arrived the personal touch was evident. Bags were collected, the welcome was warm and the hotel was fantastic. Although we were there at 1130 in the morning our room was prepared and little extra touches for our anniversary were all ready. The meal on the roof was great (even though it rained non stop) and breakfast in the same place was elegant and delicious. When I’ve saved enough points we will be back!

I travel regularly and its always a nice surprise when things are right all the way through your stay. I believe it was Lexi who checked me in, she is a real asset to the hotel. All the staff are, always polite, very helpful and professional. The room immaculately clean, it was was a standard room but very nicely decorated. Roof top bar and restaurant is incredible. Views across the city and overlooking Trafalgar Square. Right next to tube stations. Walking distance to everything including SoHo and Covent Garden. Perfect location if you’re site seeing. I will be back as it was a real treat to stay there.
