We stayed 3 nights in October and overall were pleased with our choice. The location is great for tourists - walking distance to a lot of the major tourist spots and just steps from the Charing Cross station and a short walk to the Picadilly station to access the Underground. The rooms are a decent size compared to other rooms...

Stayed 2 nights at the Trafalgar. Location is great and the rooftop bar was nice, though it would have been so much better in the summer than on a cold winter's evening. We had a room on the 6th floor and so thought we would have some great views - which we did of an office block which we could...

We had a great overnight stay. We were made very welcome and were able to leave bags easily with the very nice concierge. The roof terrace is lovely (even in December) and there are blankets on the chairs. Everyone was really nice to us and the situation is brilliant (right on Trafalgar Square, with a great view from the terrace)....

My husband carries diamond status with Hilton. He spends over 150 nights a year in their properties. We reserved two rooms at this hotel with 580,000 of his accumulated points. Upon arrival, we were given two handicapped accessible rooms which we did not request nor want. The bathrooms flooded with each shower. The light switches were hidden behind bureaus. We...

We spent a night here as it is very handy for the Coliseum. Online check-in wasn't much use as there was no facility for choosing your room. We arrived at 3.15 to find no room ready. We were offered a drink and while we were having it, oddly, other folk seemed to be checking in and getting rooms! Once we...

I stay in this hotel once or twice a year and I love its central location and the great views of some of the rooms overlooking Trafalgar Square.

A rather complicated check in process for a hilton member after already checking in on line. Having said that, the hotel has a fabulous location and most of the staff could not be more helpful.

Had a fantastic trip to London and stayed right in the heart at Trafalgar Square. This Hilton property is perfectly located to do all the tourist things. Walking distance to many attractions and transportation. Staff was very friendly (especially concierge and doorman). Room was surprisingly large with updated bathroom.

Wonderful in service, location and luxury From the moment we walked in the door, every member of staff was polite, helpful and very eager to please. The room was lovely and quiet. Breakfast great. The location is unbelievable - literally looking over Nelson's column. Would go again.

Staying in St. James's

Neighbourhood 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.
