How sad - the Royal Adelphi was an absolute Godsend, convenient for my office and amazing value for Central London. I last stayed there earlier this year and it was its usual shabby, friendly, welcoming self. Yes, the furniture, carpets and TVs all belonged in the 1970s (or in a skip) but the place was clean and for GBP55 including...

I have enjoyed staying there since I discovered it in 1998. Yes the rooms were somewhat old and tired, but the atmosphere was friendly and safe. And a perfect location, particulary as I come up via Charing Cross. Alas the Credit Crunch seems to have bitten and the hotel is now closed :( If any of the staff read this...

Disregard the date that I was forced to check on this website. I first stayed at the Royal Adelphi in 1986 and the last time in 2002. I found it simple, clean, friendly and the greatest location for the price in all of London. Right on the Thames, behind Charing Cross station. It's walking distance to everything I want to...

I stayed at royal Adelphi hotel in October 2008. The hotel was not fantastic but it was clean. However... the furniture, bathroom, and carpet must have been installed before the 2nd world war. Despite the perfect location of the hotel I would NOT recommend it to people that enjoy London’s nightlife and need to sleep in the morning until late....

The location really is outstanding - you step out the door and are in very close walking distance to the theatre district, Covent Garden, Leicester Square, and Soho. Embankment and Charing Cross train stations are a minute away. Other conveniences are super close (supermarket, chemist, net cafes), and it's safe to walk around there at night because it's so busy...

Dear fellow travellers, your reviews led me to book this hotel but I was severely let down. It is London afterall so my expectations were low but this place is really dreadful. Sticky carpets, threadbare bedspreads, curtains and lumpy mattresses that haven't been changed since the 50s. Totally unacceptable standard for a hotel operator. Mould on the bread at breakfast....

My wife and I stayed at the Royal Adelphi Hotel on Villiers Street in London from May 22-May 26, 2008. We had a room with a private bath and double bed. The location was absolutely perfect - across the street from Charing Cross station, about 150 yards from the Embankment tube station, and a very short walk to Trafalgar Square....

Neighbourhood Profile
Trafalgar Square / Embankment
With its iconic Nelson’s Column, majestic oversized lions and brightly-lit fountains, Trafalgar Square is not just considered the heart of this bustling London hub, but the very core of the city itself. Beyond this esteemed gathering place are more famous icons, as well as a disproportionate numbers of the city’s most popular cultural attractions including the National Gallery and many West End theaters. Along the way to these major sites are quiet lanes and antiquated pubs to discover, as well as riverside vistas to enjoy on the embankment. With a calendar full of celebratory events, any time of year is a fine time to visit.
