An exciting London Adventure

Holding our breath on the tube from Heathrow only added to our anticipation of the Citadines and what we would find there. Once we arrived at our Northumberland stay, my wife and I were very pleased at the accomodations. We quietly but harmlessly snickered about our receptionist, who tried his best to understand two jet-lagged Americans. After reading several Citadine reviews before we left the US, we welcomed the neatness, cleanliness and friendliness of the Citadine facility and staff. Would we stay in London at the Trafalgar Citadines again?? Most assuredly so! Our travel to London was more intimate due to the proximity to the Thames, Westminister and Trafalgar Square. Thank you, Citadines!

A good and generous walk-about could take you to any one of London's finest and most interesting attractions. Plenty of fine restaurants and abundant shopping were available within walking distance of the Citadine.

GREAT location!

the location couldn't be any better! when you get off the embankment metro(~100m away) to get to the hotel, there is a 24hr.A&P along with coffee/food & shops there. if you leave the hotel, cross the street & go right (towards traf. square), stay on the road as it bends left & there is a 24hr. Tesco there on your left(~200m?). The laundry was extremely convenient in the basement: 5 pounds wash & 4 for dryer.

The Sherlock Holmes Pub is closed for renovations (exit lobby & go right), but when you see it on your right, go towards it & past it down the narrow street & there is the Ship & Shovell pub--great, friendly place, all ages, maybe 3 min. walk from hotel, 3.50 for 1 pint.

Great location for a London overview

We were happy to see the convenience to the tube and other attractions, delighted with the kitchen, puzzled that there was no attention to the room while we were out, but realized that it was an apartment, not a hotel. Not too fond of the bed, which sagged in the middle.

Claustrophobics be warned!

While the hotel's location and staff were excellent the building itself had quite a bit to be desired. The hotel's description says it also has apartments and the room we got was a very small flat that had a tiny kitchen. Everything was old, worn, and tiny. The bed was actually a couch that had a removable cover and a second bed that slid out from under it. The bathroom had a glass barrier between the tub and sink that pivoted for some reason and who's only purpose was to get in your way. The bathroom also had a wall mounted hair dryer that looked more like an 80s vacuum cleaner. The TV was extremely small and while the room had free internet the connection was painfully slow. The room had no view and construction woke us up several times. There were no amenities and they even wanted you to pay £9 to have the towels cleaned. After complaining we did get two clean towers and a new roll of toilet paper. Room service partially cleaned the room once.

The hotel had outlet adapters that you could borrow for a £5 security deposit. When you returned the adapter they returned your money. No need to buy anything!
