Excellent location. Only downside was the bedroom was very tired and the bathroom could have done with a refurbishment but everywhere was clean. Breakfast was lovely but a little slow in getting food out. Staff were extremely helpful. Would stay there again.

Amazing location facing Trafalgar Square. The Roof Bar is a unique open air experience. Staff are absolutely charming. Decor is flashy but not comfortable. Close to everything! We will stay here again.

On arrival the Trafalgar hotel looks impressive, the decor is ultra modern, so you really need to like this style to like this hotel. I do think they have gone a bit over the top with the style in places, such as the mood lighting in the lift areas, just leaves the area so dark, day and night, you can...

This hotel is the right place to get you to anywhere conveniently and quickly in London. Step out of the hotel and you will see Trafalgar Square and the National Gallery on the opposite side. Tube station Charing Cross is less than 5mins walk away. Spoilt by choices of dining places within walking distance, hence not bothered to eat in-house....

I love to stay here, the location is the best thing for me. Never had any problems in the past, but a couple of billing/ rate errors this time, and breakfast service poor on my last morning, had too ask to be served. although this is not normal.

You can't beat the location right on Trafalgar Square -- walking distance to many sights and right on top of Charing Cross station and several bus lines. The hotel itself is modern and well-appointed with decent sized rooms and a good breakfast. I wish the rooftop bar was open when we stayed, but were a week or two too early....

Staying in St. James's

Neighbourhood Profile
St. James's
Perennially fashionable since the days of Henry VIII, the aristocratic “Clubland” of St James's is a premier destination for high end craft and bespoke design. Here you’ll lose count of the Royal Warrants (which indicate that the Royal Family patronizes the establishment) seen in shop front windows, even during a short stroll to bordering Green Park or St James’s Park. With the brightly lit and constantly buzzing junction of Piccadilly Circus at its northeast corner and none of Central London too far away, this is an surprisingly central and accessible part of town, especially given its prosperous demeanor.
