The Grand at Trafalgar Square

Enjoyed the central location, many of the key sights were even within walking distance. Christmastime was not the best time to visit London as many places were closed on the 25th and 26th, but we found enough to do to make it pleasant anyway.

Get location for the price

chose this hotel because of the great reviews. They weren't wrong. It was in a great location with a fair price. Very quiet and clean. The only negative was the key card device in the elevators. Had to fiddle with it to get it to work. Many guests just gave up and asked the desk clerks to do it for them.

Location and more at this great hotel

The location of this hotel can't be beat. We enjoyed our stay so much, we returned to London and booked rooms at this hotel again. The staff is helpful and they have a closet open on the floor with extras you might need. They could use more front desk help during busy times--but no other issues here

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.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

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.

The Grand is very convenient, clean, a sort of rabbit warren of rooms and narrow hallways, but the rooms themselves have very good beds, showers, and wi-fi. The location could not be better and there are many good sites within a short walk. I'm very happy to have stayed there

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.

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.

great business hotel for theater lovers

my third stay at the hotel (which is part club-The Club Quarters). Fully renovated, rooms relatively small but great beds and linens, free internet, purified water. Limited food in the hotel, but quite good quality. I plan to go back again and again.
