Very nice hotel in an excellent location.

Posted 18-Aug-2017
Pros: See above!
Cons: Maybe a little more coffee available in our room or in the lobby.
Location: See above!
This was a very nice hotel in a great neighborhood and just steps away from Trafalgar Square - the center of London city - and many, many other attractions and sights. Many transportation stops, restaurants, groceries and other shops nearby. About 4 blocks away from the Embankment along the Thames River - so cool! The best thing, absolutely, is the location. But the hotel itself is very nice and we had a lovely room with a kitchenette and nice TV. The view from our room was over the rooftops of London right to Big Ben! Really neat! The staff was very nice & helpful. Our flight from the US arrived early in the morning & our room wasn't ready, which we expected. But they stowed all our luggage and even provided a washroom where we could change in to clean clothes and even take a shower if we wanted before traveling out to start our sightseeing! The first thing we did was walk to the Changing of the Queen's Horse Guard which was just a few blocks away! We truly did enjoy our stay at the Trafalgar, would recommend it highly and would most probably book it again if we ever get to London again!

Great location

Posted 18-Aug-2017
Pros: I liked the location, it was very convenient to be outside of Trafalgar Square.
Cons: The food at the lobby restaurant Boyd's was mediocre and pricey, especially for a continental breakfast. Dining outside the hotel is preferable.
Location: Walking distance to London Eye, Big Ben, National Gallery, Buckingham Palace, West End, Picadilly Circus.
This hotel is walking distance to most places I wanted to see during my London visit: London Eye, Big Ben, National Gallery, Buckingham Palace, West End, etc. The closest Underground station is Charing Cross and it's only a few stops away from dining/markets at Convent Garden and the British museum. It took about an hour to get to and from the Heathrow airport on the Picadilly line. I found the rooms to be clean with great amenities. Free launderette, purified drinking water on each floor, spacious room with smart TV to watch Hulu, Netflix, etc. It was outstanding.

Amazingly peaceful block next to Trafalgar Square

Posted 17-Aug-2017
Pros: See above
Cons: Have the hotel bar stay open later than !8PM!
Location: see above
This hotel is lovely - well maintained, friendly staff, and very comfortable rooms. It's on a tree-lined block just off Trafalgar Square, and is very peaceful. Nice pubs abound, and it's just a short walk to the Embankment and Houses of Parliament. Also perfectly located for wandering St.James and Green Parks, and gazing at Buckingham Palace. Can't say enough about how much we enjoyed staying here. Thanks to the Grand!

Small but cozy room

Can't complain. Fairly affordable clean room close to the tube and many attractions. Big Ben, river thames and south bank are within walking distance.

Would definitely stay here again!

We were at the Grand at Trafalgar Square for two nights in early August. We had four adults in the room with a double/queen bed and a pull-out sofa bed. The main bed was extremely comfortable. The sofa bed was...a sofa bed, so the mattress was thin and our two adult sons weren't hugely comfortable. But if you had small kids, it would be great. Other than that, we loved the room. It was clean and attractive, with nice amenities. It had a small kitchenette with tea service, a fridge, sink, and microwave. And the bathroom was spotless with a deep soaking tub. The location was excellent! It's across a street and only about a half block away from the Charing Cross Underground stop, so you can leave the hotel and be on a train in about five minutes. It's only a half block from Trafalgar Square and the National Gallery, and about a 10-15 minute walk to the Parliament building and Westminster Abbey. We also walked to Buckingham Palace...maybe a 20-30 minute walk (we took the scenic route through St. James Park). But it's so easy to hop on the Tube and get anywhere in the city quickly. You can't beat the location of this hotel for easy access to just about any attraction if you're a tourist. The hotel is also next door to an amazing bakery and a couple of cafes that have great, inexpensive food. Overall, we enjoyed our time at the Grand at Trafalgar and would definitely stay again!

Excellent Location

Posted 17-Aug-2017
Pros: Location
Location: Walked to Buckingham Palace, rode the sightseeing bus, walked to the nearby restaurants.
Only stayed for two nights but we loved the location and the staff was very helpful. We arrived very early but the staff checked us in even though the room was not ready and held our luggage until we returned from sightseeing. The hotel is closed to the metro and the sightseeing bus locations. There were also many nearby restaurants.

Fantastic location, really nice size rooms

Great location, super central and can walk anywhere or jump on the tube very close by. Really big rooms and nice accommodations. The technology with the television as far as connecting to iPhones/iPad was also really nice.
