Very nice hotel, friendly staff and spacious room (kingsize bed). Breakfast was also very good. Only downside was the cleaning (as it is so often...). Not entirely clean in corners and under furniture.
Overall it was an excellent stay anyway. The location couldnt be better!

This was my first time overseas and this hotel was absolutely incredible. My wife and I decided to go to England for our 10th anniversary and we had the best trip we’ve ever had. My brother and his wife had stayed here in 2014 and they said how wonderful this hotel was. They were definitely right by saying what they said. That made our decision in where to stay so much easier. The staff at this hotel was wonderful. The room was big and spacious and clean. There are a lot of restaurants and sightseeing attractions within a close proximity to this hotel. And we paid a rate that was affordable. We will definitely return again if were ever London bound again. A+ stay

This was my 8th time in London and my first time y this hotel.
The hotel is perfect, the location is the best, near from the tube station, from the Thames, so we were able to easily explore local attractions such as the natural history and science museums as well as Harrods. the neighborhood is very safe.

The room was absolutely amazing - top class luxury at every turn.

The menu of the hotel restaurants were fantastic" and the breakfast is delicious. The rooftop is amazing, The attention to detail is amazing. It was absolutely perfect in every way.

We spend new year eve, and the capacity of the hotel was full, but all team members are very kind. The Trafalgar St James staff are probably one of the most special assets of the hotel - incredibly friendly, helpful and welcoming. Carolina from the rooftop and Bruno from the lobby were particularly great!

I cannot stress enough just how great the entire experience was and we will definitely be coming back!

My husband and I arrived on a Friday morning from the airport, with traffic being quite a struggle to get to Trafalgar square. We have stayed at the Hilton Doubletree Westminster a couple of times and thought we would try a different hotel. However, during the cab ride in we felt as though we may have made a mistake as traffic wasn't quite as bad to that area. As soon as we arrived at the hotel, they greeted us at the door, took our luggage and proceeded to get us checked in. Unfortunately, our room wasn't ready yet, but they offered us access to the breakfast and placed our luggage in a holding area. We decided to go out and explore a bit before the pub tour we had scheduled that afternoon. After returning to the hotel, they again greeted us and escorted us to our room, where they had already taken our luggage. That night we had an amazing experience just having a cup of tea at the rooftop lounge overlooking London. The service was impeccable and I cannot imagine staying anywhere else in the city now. After traveling to Cornwall and Wales through the week, we returned for our last night in London and again were treated to a wonderful experience. We will definitely stay here again and would recommend it to anyone considering coming to London to stay here.

Stayed here for four nights. Unfortunately was here at the same time as the Commonwealth leaders summit so roads around Trafalgar square were hellish. This made coming in difficult and for an expensive taxi ride. Once we found the hotel it was pleasant. Checkin staff were friendly if you got a younger staff member. At times I noticed an older blonde ( ? Supervisor) and she never once smiled or even said hello to people.

Concierge staff are very friendly and helpful and are the stars of this hotel apart from location. Location is excellent. Right across from the Canadian Consulate and Trafalgar square. A few minutes walk to the national gallery and a few more to soho and Leicester square. Easy getting show ticks and easy walk to all the theatres.

Upgraded myself to the St James room. Was nice and you get four small bottles of coke a day along with two sparkling and two still bottles of water a day in the minibar.

Unfortunately our first night was inundated with loud bangs and heavy footfall of the people above us. We were on the 3rd floor. I was told it was worse for noise on the 5 and 6 as there is a rooftop bar and potential for noise is worse. We complained the next morning and we decided to upgrade to a bigger room facing Canada house for 40 pounds more. I figured out what was making the loud banging noise. The washroom door has a door stop but is made of metal and whenever you opened the door it would hit the bathtub and cause noise. The closet and cupboard doors have no plastic stops so when you close them they make loud bangs. So overall noise sound proofing could be better and easily improved if they wanted to wth cheap and simple fixes.

Dislikes were the housekeeping. After they cleaned a team would go around and do an inspection. Every day they would have to come back with something they missed and one day my wife’s popcorn went missing in the plastic bag it was in.

Overall good location and would recommend. Would give a higher rating if they fix the noise issues (door stops and plastic cupboard stops).
