Stayed for three nights for a weekend full of tours and a show. We could not have chosen a better place for our needs. Everything is on the doorstep. The staff are friendly, helpful and welcoming. The rooms are comfortable and very clean, if perhaps in need of a little updating in the bathroom. We would definitely stay here again.

Location, location. Only few minutes walk to everything: Trafalagar Square, Covent Garden, Leicester Square, Chinatown, Soho, Piccadilly, Museums and a little bit farther Oxford Street, Buckingham Palace, the gardens and river Thames. Nice rooms and very good breakfast. The staff is friendly and helpful.

The hotel was top class, the room was sheer luxury. The location was great, within walking distance of many top tourist attractions. The staff, particularly the Reception staff, were incredibly friendly and helpful. I will definitely be returning.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
There aren’t many genuinely quiet streets right in the heart of London. But they do exist - and we’re on one of them. In fact, you might never guess that Piccadilly Circus and Leicester Square are within a few minutes’ walk. The Royal Trafalgar has the City on one side, Whitehall on the other and history everywhere you look. The National Gallery is literally next door, as is the square that shares our name. ... more   less
