Extremely small room. Nothing special

Well located if you want to be in the heart of London. The room was incredibly small. Nothing else bad to say about the hotel. But also nothing else good.

Great location and immaculately clean

Excellent location just off Trafalgar Square. All staff we met were friendly and helpful. Everywhere was immaculately clean. The bathroom was very small and we felt the price of our stay was high for a weekend stay. Still we had a great stay and would return.

Average Hotel

2 Asian sisters still found the room too small. London hotels are expensive while The Royal Trafalgar is no exception. Hotel staff friendly, room is small though clean, quiet and with strong water pressure at shower. Location is quite center, few minutes walk to Piccadilly Circus tube station (if you have big luggage, please note you have to handle 2 flights of stairs at Piccadilly Circus station). Hotel is convenient for shopping.

Fantastic central London location

The hotel was really easy to get to from Heathrow via the tube. We arrived very very early in the morning and were able to check in early and freshen up before heading out to see London. Everyday our room was made up and supplies restocked. It was a fabulous location within an easy walk of so many attractions and also right near the theatres , restaurants and shops. We had breakfast at the hotel and it was really good value. The staff were most friendly, helpful and courteous. We highly recommend this hotel.

Shopping tip: Long walk from hotel

The John Lewis department store has a great food hall, well stocked and a lot more reasonably priced than Harrods or Fortnum and Masons.

European getaway

Very good location, close to Piccadilly circus, Leicester square and chinatown. Close to train stn. Comfy rooms and clean bathroom but no minibar! Bought some drinks and food thinking there would be a fridge to store but to no avail... Unless you were in a suite. When we asked to use the microwave we weren't allowed. When we called reception to find out particulars eg best way to the airport and how to get to the underground station and length of journey etc the receptionist was not familiar and said he would get a colleague to call us back. We waited over one hour and had to call reception back as we did not hear from them. Mind you this was past 11pm so it's not like it was a busy time for them. Wifi was expensive-10pounds for 24 hr. Cheaper to use outside and cheap food outside for brekky as well.
