Fabulous 8.6 From 1,307 reviews

Very good 8.0
Aussies in London
Coming to the entrance of the hotel - people were standing on the steps and further onto the foot path smoking cigarettes. We don't object to people smoking (we are non -smokers) but, it was disgusting walking through the thick cloud of smoke and was hoping it wasn't a sign of things to come. We booked and payed for our room a long time in advance (we live in Australia) so, were disappointed to be put in a room directly above where renovations were taking place. What this meant for us was, we were woken up quite early by banging and the smell of burnt timber that they were working with. We were advised that the staff would find another available room and will move our belongings accordingly We packed everything up and set out on our activities for the day. Staff moved our belongings to another room roughly the same quality although, it did not have a microwave like our first room had. They brought the small fridge from our original room to the new room which we were happy about. It was also noticed that an item that was packed on top of one of our bags was not with all our contents, we certainly were not happy about this. We phoned to inform reception staff and were told they would call us after some investigation. Roughly after an hour waiting without a phone call to our room, we went to reception to ask if the item was found. Pleasingly yes it was but, no explanation was given as to why the item was not brought with the rest of our belongings.

The location of this property is outstanding. Leaving the building and walking to the left, you are a block from Trafalgar square and the Charing Cross Underground Station; leaving and walking to the right you are about a block from the Encampment Underground Station. The hotel is easy walking distance to a number of museums and attractions, and the two underground stations, with connections, will take you everywhere. There was no bathtub, which was fine with me, and the shower had great water-pressure and lots of hot water. There was also an ironing board and iron Now, here are the things that I didn't like about the hotel. There seems to be at least three people at the desk, but seeing me struggling with a bag did not inspire any of them to help. The room was nice, nothing fancy, but nice and clean-looking. However, the bathroom had no outlet for a hair dryer (it had an outlet that said 'Shaver Only), and there was no mirror in the room close to an outlet. There were two lights up on the wall to the right and left of the bed, but they were too far away from the bed and too weak and high up to use as reading lights. My room had a 'kitchenette' which consisted of service for four, (no containers for cooking in the microwave), a dorm room refrigerator, small microwave, and bar sink, which would have been fine, but there were no towels nor paper towels, and the bathroom had only one wash cloth, and one hand towel provided so I ended up using the hand towel for the kitchen.

Exceptional 10.0
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!

Good 6.0
Great location, hotel is mediocre
Pros: Proximity to everything. Location doesn’t get better than this. Filtered bottled water station Nice front desk gentleman named, Daniel Housekeeping was sub par. Room wasn’t that clean, lot of surface dust. Nothing was replenished (coffee, etc) when the room was cleaned while we were out the following day Room service (restaurant Bianco 43) called at 10:20 pm requesting for plates to be put outside - odd request but I obliged Room service (employee from Bianco 43) knocked on door at 10:30 pm asking where the food delivery basket was. We never brought the basket in, it was left outside when the food came and I don’t know whether someone else picked it up or what happened BUT there was no reason to knock on a guest’s room at 10:30 pm at night to ask for something so trivial that could’ve been inquired about at a decent time the following day. Maid was about to come into the room without knocking. Door opened and quickly shut (when she realized people were inside). I didn’t have the deadbolt on because I had went out for coffee earlier in the morning. Still, this was at 10:00 am, check-out isn’t until 12:00 noon so housekeeping should’ve knocked. UNACCEPTABLE. Room was very cold throughout entire stay. Called the front desk and they said the temperature didn’t go any higher than 25 degrees.

Fair 4.0
would not stay again
We had high hopes for this hotel. The location is good, but that is where it stops for us. Our room was very disappointing. We asked for a different room, but we were told that there were no other available rooms - as ours was a suite. Our view was of many many power units. There was a constant hum in our bunker-like room. The signs telling where the rooms were located were wrong - and we had to climb a group of stairs to get to our oddly located room. The stairs were not a fun find in a hotel of this type. We had requested a room near my parents - nope. They were on the 8th floor and we were on the 2nd - in different parts of the hotel. In fact, to get to their room, we had to take a different elevator. Our stay was only one night - if it had been longer, we would have moved hotels. It was very clean…but it was not enough to make it worth the price. They did place in our room a gift basket of wine and such when they could not move our room - seems odd to have a basket like that ready unless many are unhappy?
