“Return to The Trafalgar”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 April 2012

We had a wonderful stay of 5 nights at The Trafalgar. From the moment we checked in to checkout all of the staff was efficent and helpful. We especially want to praise the new Guest Relations Manager, Marli, who was very friendly and accommodating. Marli hosted a lovely reception for Hilton Honors members. The breakfast is excellent, and the rooms are spacious and well maintained. The location is amazing and it is easy to get to most tourist attractions and the theatre via walking, underground or by bus. We look forward to our next stay at The Trafalgar.

This is a beautiful hotel, clean, sophisticated and attractive. The position is perfect, right infront of Nelson's column and a five-minute walk from Her Majesty's Theatre. Breakfast was very good, refined and delightful..listening to a young musician playing the classical guitar while eating. The whole experience was wonderful.

We had a great experience from the moment we made the reservation to the time we checked out. We paid for an upgrade and had a triple room which was on the 2nd floor and had a great view of Trafalgar Square and the National Arts Gallery, The staff at the reception were very friendly at check in and the room was clean and spacious. The breakfast buffet was excellent and if you wanted any hot food you ordered it separately. Everything was fresh and good quality. Would definately stay at the hotel again when I go to London as the location is great. 5 minutes walk from our theatre on the Strand and 10 minutes walk to St Pauls Cathedral and the South Bank. The roof top bar was great. A lovely anbiance with nice heaters to keep us warm in the cold air. We had a cocktail each but at 14 pounds each I thought a little expensive but then it is London and a 4 star hotel and we got the view too.

Rooms - our two rooms were close together on the 3rd floor, no view from either room both looking into an office block, however quiet at night. Rooms, which were the standard type, were clean, spacious and functional. Bar and rooftop terrace both delightful, lovely cocktails but at £14 each quite expensive. Concierge very helpful. The location couldn't be better, central for pretty much anywhere.

The Trafalgar is an awesome boutique hotel in a Central London location that cannot be beat. As a gold Hilton Honors members we go upgraded to a large room, we were made feel really welcome with a bottle of wine and fruit, the staff is extremely helpful and cheery. The full breakfast was delicious - with lots of choices. On the top of the hotel there's a trendy bar and restaurant with a view on the Trafalgar square.

The architecture of the place inside is very trendy, modern.

This hotel is trying to be cool but it just can't pull it off. The decor doesn't quite make it and is still. Soul-less chain. The service was embarrassing at times, especially in the lobby restaurant. The roof top bar is staffed with young male that have no idea how to cater to tourists. The linens in the hotel are old and worn out. We used points to stay for free but paid Slight charge to upgrade...Probably worth it. Doubt I'd come back. The area is kind of gross (like Time Sq in NYC.)

We had the BEST experience at this hotel. It was our 35th Anniversary and they went out of their way with rose petals, chocolate strawberries and all kinds of special touches ready for us in our lovely, large room with great amenities. Daniela at the front desk is amazing, fun, sweet and attentive to every detail. The location is right on Trafalgar Square, so it was a quick walk to Buckingham Palace, The Parliament Bldgs, Westminster Cathedral, and the British Museum. The breakfast on the weekend was also quite elegant and delicious, everything you could want. On our last night there we tried their roof top bar/restaurant that had eye popping views and a wonderful ambiance to enjoy. This really is the place to visit on your next trip to London.
