top spot!

The central location of this hotel, literally beside Trafalgar Square, was perfect for grabbing a rest midway through the day. Staff on hand 24/7 and helpful. Self-service laundry facility such a good idea. There was a relaxing and friendly ambience and it would have been easy to spend a few hours just relaxing in the hotel. HOwever, the excellent location meant this was never going to be an option! Surrounded by tube stops and stations, near the river, the London Eye, Trafalgar Square, the National GAllery and not forgetting St. Martin in the Fields with its great cafe in the crypt, try it!

Good care for a good trip.

The room was clean, the staff was very helpful, and the location superb. The shower stall was a bit small for a full grown adult, but there was always plenty of hot water, and the air conditioning worked great on those days when the heat became an issue. The room came with a small refrigerator and microwave which helped cut the costs a bit since London can get expensive.

From the hotel you're within a short walk of the theatre district, the south bank, the London Eye, St. Jame's Park, Whitehall Palace, Covent Garden, Charing Cross,Picadilly Circus, the National Gallery, and of course Trafalgar Square. You're also two minutes from the Underground and the Embankment Railway Station.

Amazing location!

Great hotel with friendly staff and amazing location. The maid service was inconsistent. While the rooms were left clean, not all towels taken were returned - I didn't have a washcloth for 3 days and soaps and shampoos were not replenished. One day the complimentary coffee and tea was not replenished either.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

The National Gallery is located around the corner and admission is free. You can walk anywhere within 20-30 minutes of this hotel - no need to spend money on a taxi or public transport because there's so much to see and do along the way.

Perfect Location! Just Brillant

Perfect location 3 minutes from the National Museum and a 10 minute walk to Buckingham Palace, Big Ben and Westiminister Abbey, 4 minutes to the House Guard Parade, and 15 - 20 minutes to St. Paul. The staff was generally good but a bit stuffy at times...the would not allow me to sit on the stair in front of the hotel and eat my hamburger bought from another business, and then when I moved inside to the lobby they would not let me eat there either because it was "too close" to thier restaurant. This was a bit irratating because as a guest I expected to be able to sit in the lobby and enjoy a quick bite to eat. The lobby and bar area of the hotel is gorgeous and clean. The room was smalll but fine for 1 person. The AC worked great. The daily maid service was great. Ooverall the room was nice but not opulent or great, and a bit on the small side. But the size of the room was definitely compensated for by the BRILLANT location. I would definitely consider staying here again in the future.

HMS Belfast is a WW II Navy ship that has been converted to a museum. It sits on the Thames near the Lambert Bridge, easy to get to and a very interesting real-life museum conversion.

Great stay at a nice hotel

I travel to London a lot and usually stay in Bloomsbury but got the Grand at a great rate. I lvoed the location because I like to walk everywhere. It was easy check-in - there's a computer right next to the desk which I used instead of waiting in the small queue. The hotel room was very decent sized for London standards. The room seemed new with nice furniture, a comfortable bed and a good bathroom with a nice shower (no tub in my room). Also, in the room was a flat panel TV with about 20+ channels, a hairdryer and an umbrella. My room was quiet and I never heard my neighbors. I would stay here again if I got another good rate.
