The Trafalgar St. James London, Curio Collection by Hilton

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The staff went out of its way to make us feel welcome! All arrangements for airport shuttles were made for us. The room was clean, spacious and comfortable!! Trafalgar has a wonderful breakfast buffet. Our 2 day stay was flawless.... We highly recommend this hotel, especially the location for a short stay or for the luxury of a lengthy stay!

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.

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).

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.

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.

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!

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.

Good hotel, friendly staff. Good price at the restaurant. The telephone is too expensive, local calls can go easily to 15 pounds for just 10 min talk.

This hotel is very clean and conveniently located to all central London attractions. The staff is friendly and the food is good too. There are "city" noises at night in London, ie, sirens, noisy revelers etc, but it was not overwhelming. All the places you want to see are within walking distance. Would stay here again.

The location is excellent, many sites in walking distance. Staff was pretty friendly, room was clean and nicely laid out. easy access to the tube.

Centrally located, clean and the staff was helpful in getting around town.

Location, location, location! Concierge and the front desk service was as if you were staying at the 5+ hotel. Room was clean and comfortable. All of our needs, from booking excursions, to requesting a taxi were done with a smile and pleasure by the staff. Kudos to the Trafalgar Hilton!!!!!!!!
