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. Restaurant and Bar facilities are temporarily closed until 19th August 2021.

The hotel located close to Tragalger Square, above the Charing cross station, we had no trouble getting a taxi, thanks to the proximity to the station. , The hotel, public areas and rooms are very spacious and grand so it was perfect for the Christmas spirit Breakfast is very good, fresh fruits salad and a nice buffet The rooms are very nice with an espresso machine and the minibar was complimentary

My fiancé and I stayed here for 3 nights while we were visiting London for the Christmas markets. Firstly, the location of this hotel is absolutely incredible, right beside Charing Cross station/underground with a taxi rank and a bus stop straight outside as well as being only a short walk away from Covent Gardens all the whilst being out of the main hustle and bustle of the busier streets - could not have asked for a better located hotel really. The room was absolutely fine, it wasn’t anything special in my opinion. I was expecting the standard room to be a little bigger but it was absolutely fine. We would have struggled to have stayed in a room that size for a week. Included in the standard room however was some complimentary drinks that were refilled everyday together with some sweets and savoury snacks which was a lovely touch. The staff were absolutely incredible - from the concierges, housekeepers to the restaurant staff, the service was impeccable and cannot be faulted. The staff really are a credit to the hotel. This is a good 4 star hotel, I wouldn’t say it’s a 5 star having stayed in other 5 star hotels previously. I believe this hotel was worth what we paid for it and we would stay again but next time we will be upgrading our room.

We had a bottomless brunch booked in the restaurant and I can honestly say Cyan’s service was the best I’ve ever seen. She was quick to refill our glass and very quick with service. Can honestly say if anyone deserves a raise/promotion it’s her. She was amazing
