Search for cheapest prices: Royal Trafalgar Hotel
The Royal Trafalgar Hotel enjoys an exclusive and extremely rare advantage over many of the hotels placed in the heart of London. The hotel is right next door to one of London's busiest areas, Trafalgar Square, with some of the city's most prestigious galleries thronging with tourists visiting Nelson's column; however as the hotel is discretely tucked into a side street you will be able to enjoy an ideal location and a quiet night's sleep; quite a coup in such a bustling metropolis.
The hotel's 108 bedrooms range from Premier to Suite and are all decorated in rich, contemporary fabrics and stylish furnishings. In-room amenities include BT Openzone Wi-fi (for a small charge); complimentary extras such as toiletries, newspapers, magazines, chocolates and water; iPod docking stations; sofa beds; ironing facilities and a flat-screen TV; so you will have everything you need to connect to the outside world whilst resting away from it, with a range of little extras to make your stay seem that bit more special. Service at the hotel has been praised by previous guests and hotel facilities are well appointed, including a Health and Fitness Centre, room service available around the clock, and wireless Internet access throughout the building for a small charge.
The hotel also offers guests fine dining in their Squares Restaurant, a sophisticated modern setting with a patio for al fresco dining in summer months. The restaurant does a range of British and European dishes. Or if you fancy exploring, great restaurants such as 12 Temple Place and Adam Street Restaurant also offer an elegant take on modern British cuisine. If you just want to quench your thirst, you can start your night in the Gravity bar, which offers guests drinks and snacks in informal surroundings.
When it comes to seeing the best London has to offer, you couldn't be in a better location. The hotel is just a few minutes' walk from The National Gallery, which contains artistic treasures from around the globe, in a collection dating back to the 11th century. The National Portrait Gallery is also nearby, which has a phenomenal collection of classic and contemporary portraits, from straightforward representations to the abstract (a sculpture made of feathers which shows the silhouette of Isabella Blow's head is a case in point). You are also near to London's Theatreland district in Leicester Square and Piccadilly Circus, an infinite range of shops in Covent Garden, The Strand and Leicester Square and so much more. You are also just a stroll away from The Thames if you want to take an enchanting dinner cruise through nighttime London.
The hotel is also very well situated for travel, whether you arrive by bus, car, and train or from much farther afield. Leicester Square tube station is just a few minutes' walk away, which services the Northern and Piccadilly lines. From here you have a direct link to many other central London locations; King's Cross St Pancras Station (where the Eurostar terminates); and Heathrow Airport. If you are driving to the hotel, it is situated just off the main A4 road, which can be accessed via the M4 and M25; however, guests should note that the hotel is in the congestion charge zone. The nearest, all night car parking facility is in Whitfield Street, close by to the hotel.
Even if the hotel wasn't so tastefully decorated and has such friendly, attentive staff, this hotel would be worth staying in for the amazing location alone, but the fact that they have all this and more means it is a very good choice for your stay in central London.
