The hotel is in a superb location. The staff were helpful and the rooms are a really good size. Can't fault it. Despite the central location was not disturbed by the hussle outside and the sound proofing is excellent.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 1 week ago via mobile

It goes without saying that the location of this hotel is perfect. For those who are traveling to London for the first time: you are on Trafalgar Square 2 minutes away from the gallery, 5 minutes walk to Westminster, about 10 minutes to Buckingham palace, 15-20 min to Piccadilly Circus, very close to some theatres. Service in rooms is amazing....

Excellent service, comfortable rooms with a great location in the center of London. Close to the metro and a diverse range of restaurants. The roof top bar is perfectly for relaxing after a day of touring.

The Trafalgar is situated in Trafalgar Square and easy access can be had to all London attractions. Contemporary and comfortable rooms. Would recommend this hotel to anybody who wants a central London location and prepared to pay a little extra for this.

The hotel staff was very friendly, the rooms average - but be aware of the breakfast trap. The staff told us we could get a breakfast voucher for £15,95, normal price £18, if we decided upon arrival. We decided to get two days. After the the first breakfast, we wanted to get the our next breakfast elsewhere - but we...

We stayed in November for one night - the hotel is right on Trafalgar Square and is in a great location to get around London.

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.
