Well located hotel

The staff was welcoming and helpful. We decided to upgrade to an upper floor suite so we had a view of Trafalgar Square (worth it). The breakfast buffet was very good. The bar was relaxing. The location is perfect for museum visits and shopping (some located nearby, all located on nearby bus or underground routes).

The National Portrait Galley (other side of Trafalgar Square) is open late on Fridays (until 9 p.m.) and has music and a bar. It's like going to a party.

London Tour

The hotel on Trafalgar Square is perfectly located for museum going and touring London attraction. The rooms are small so we paid for a suite with a view of Trafalgar Square. Breakfast is good, Bar is good, People are very helpful. LOVE LONDON.

Perfect Central Location in London!

We had a great stay in London thanks to the great location of this Hotel and the similarities to what we're used to in American hotels. It was not the typical tiny Euro room. The only downside was that the Vista rooftop bar was not open on our stay because of the season. This was not mentioned anywhere on the Hilton site and a big reason why we booked there due to the stunning views. The staff still took time to take us up for a quick view and overall the staff was exceptional. The central location was perfect and beside being right on Trafalgar Square, there was no noise in our room.

Brilliant Location

Went for a week-end break with my 11 year old nephew. The location is perfect for the West End, right on Trafalgar Square. The room was spacious and bright. Lovely bathroom with a walk in shower, robes and slippers etc etc. The staff were really pleasant and helpful which isnt always the case in central London. We had a drink at the rooftop bar which is lovely although it was a bit pricey and was wasp heaven! The purple lighting in the hallways was a bit strange! Would definately stay here again.

single female travelling

The Trafalgar is in a great location, close to many major sites. Minutes away from the theatre district, tube station, parliament etc. The roof top bar has a wonderful view. Friendly and helpful staff. As a single female traveller, I felt completely safe. The room was a good size and quiet (room faced inside courtyard). Bathroom had great water pressure for the shower. Some mold on the tiles where the water drips from the tub onto the floor. Several coffee shops beside the hotel for breakfast.

Just fine!

Great room. I gave it 3 stars because the carpet was pretty gross, there was a funny smell in the room, the elevator was broken, and the shower flooded. But the staff is really fantastic-they gave us free drinks for my husband's birthday and in general, everyone was really nice. The location is amazing and the view was nice. Also, it was quiet and safe. The bed was comfy too. I would go back!

fanatstic location, fantastic staff,fantastice breakfast, accounts staff not very helpful

staff so nice and helpfull, breakfast amazing, however do not touch the drinks in the mini bar, i picked up a couple of items just to see what they were, it has an elecronic tab that charges it to your account, on leaving in a rush to catch my train i did not check my bill, on reviewing it on my way home i noticed a lot of bar charges, on contacting the accounts department i was put through to an answer phone, after leaving three messages i still did not get a call back , after finally getting through they said they would take a look at my account and come back to me and guess what no one has

Great Location, Charge for internet

The good: Great location, couldn't be better. Take the tube to Charing Cross and walk for about 5 minutes. We were there for the Harry Potter world premiere and while every other fan had to use gross public toilets, we ran to the hotel. Perfect. The bad: This is London - one of the best cities in the world. Technologically advanced - this posh hotel should have free Wifi. It does not. It charges 15 pounds per 24 hours (ends up being about $24/hr in US currency). This SHOCKED me. If you have the dough, the rooftop bar has an outrageous view; however, we sat up there for 15 minutes and no one helped us so we left. There are restaurants in the hotel - find somewhere else. The ugly: The rooms were nothing special, white walls, sparse, but you're not there for the room. Upon checkout, we had tons of fees added to our bill that weren't ours. Internet charges and a massive bar tab that two people would have a hard time making. The hotel staff did remove the fees.

Walk to Covent Garden and get tickets to a matinee show an hour before they start - you get a great deal. Recommended: Woman in Black.
