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.

Review collected in partnership with this hotel
There's no doubt what a great location this hotel is in. I wasn't disturbed by any street noise despite it being a lively area during the day and at night. The service was attentive and the rooms comfortable. I didn't eat in the restaurant so can't comment on the food.

Yes, I believe so There is a very nice bar on the first floor beside the main restaurant where I am sure you could have a coffee and a meeting and it would be very good and private compared with other high street coffee shops.

The choice in the regular breakfast is wider but the one in the lounge is a bit more chic with berries and nice cheeses.

Is there an adapter in the room for a US 120V or do I have to bring my own to charge my phone?
By the way, your phone adapter is smart enough to adjust to different line voltages (120 or 220V) so what you buy is a simple plug for the wall socket.

"Ask for a high floor room."
"The main building facing the Strand has a great view. The other building - less.... but all and all - this is not a big issue"
"If there is an elderly or disabled person, a room close to the lifts would be advised"
"Ask to be in a room away from the station which can be quite noisy"
"A room in the main building would be easier to access."
