With magnificent views of Nelson's column, Big Ben and the London Eye, The Trafalger is about as central a hotel as you can get in London. Simple yet stylish rooms with large windows make for an ideal place to relax and take in the London skyline. For fun, sink into a leather armchair and sip bourbon cocktails in the Rockwell Bar whilst you watch the hustle and bustle of the streets below. For the more energetic, a gym is accessible free of charge for hotel guests.

Trafalgar reviews

Obnoxious bouncer and elitist attitude towards the roof garden. Not only is there a compulsory service charge on drinks up there, you now have to pay £5 'cover charge' to go up there at all. Funnily enough this isn't mentioned when you call/email to enquire. Pretentious.

A unique perspective on Nelson's column.

Just excellent in every way: superb location; uniformly very good, efficient, welcoming and 'can do' staff; surprisingly large rooms; excellent and interesting F&B. I will certainly return.

Great location, characterful building, and a superb collection of bourbons at the bar downstairs!

Great location and super friendly service. Browsing through I found out that this is a 'lifestyle' Hilton, meaning art, music and design all come under one roof. And above it. From the roof garden bar you get the best view I ever had of Trafalgar Square, while comfortably sitting on stylish furniture.

I didn't have time for the restaurant downstairs but I'll definitely come back for its tapas style menu.

If only the gym would have been ready. They promise it's a matter of days. Great hotel.

Only stayed here for one night but rather enjoyed it. The location is superb for somebody visiting London for sight-seeing - Trafalgar Square on your doorstep, Green Park 50 metres away, close to Covent Garden, St James's, Soho and Westminster - perfect.

I was surprised to find it's a Hilton hotel - more individual and of a higher quality than many of their city hotels.

The rooms were comfortable and not too small by London standards and the bar was great - superb cocktails and friendly table service. There's also a decent restaurant (Jago) downstairs and a roof garden which looked great but wasn't open the night I was there.
