Best Central London Hotel – The Trafalgar London

When I look at a map of London, it is clear where the center of the action lies. Trafalgar Square is known as a central meeting place. It is close to all of the main attractions. Facing Trafalgar Square is a boutique-style hotel, The Trafalgar London. This unique central London hotel combines modern features with superb service. The Trafalgar is an excellent choice when deciding where to stay in London.

Central London Location
This front door of this central London hotel opens to Trafalgar Square. Big Ben, London Eye, Piccadilly Circus, Parliament and Westminster Abbey are all within walking distance of The Trafalgar. Multiple bus lines as well as Charing Cross station are minutes away. Shopping and restaurants are all around as well. Cafe in the Crypt, located across the square, is a unique restaurant to try and Pret A Manger is located next door for a quick meal.

What Kids Think of The Trafalgar London
The Trafalgar is not your standard central London hotel. It is decorated in bright colors and lights and has an energetic atmosphere. My kids felt like there was always a party going on. It added to the excitement of the city. The rooms are large. There is plenty of space to spread out. Both of my kids also state that the waffles served at breakfast were the best they ever had!

What Parents Think of The Trafalgar London
A large number of central London hotels do not accommodate four in a room. The benefit for families is that The Trafalgar has Twin Deluxe rooms that have two double beds.

The restaurants and bars of The Trafalgar are as unique and accommodating as the rest of the hotel. The Rockwell Bar in the lobby is a lively spot for a healthy bite to eat. I also thought the breakfast was a delicious way to start our day in London. If parents are able to get a night out, Vista bar on the roof of The Trafalgar is not to be missed. The best views of London await you at this hip spot.

The hip restaurant at The Trafalgar London was our favorite place to have breakfast every day.

My family had a blast at The Trafalgar. The staff could not have been nicer and we could not get enough of the atmosphere. We saw everything on our list from this prime location and were able to get there by foot or a short taxi ride. The Trafalgar is the best central London hotel and the place to be when visiting London.
