Trafalgar exterior at night

Contemporary Hotel in Central London

The Trafalgar is much more than a hotel, it’s a destination: Inside you’ll find 129 rooms of pure, unadulterated comfort, an award-winning bar and the most iconic Rooftop Bar in town. It’s easy to feel at home, whether you’re visiting London or a Londoner seeking a stylish setting to meet friends for pre and post theatre drinks or a bite to eat.

An intriguing history

The hotel is very much of the moment, and its history is equally as intriguing; Once home to the Cunard Steamship Company, The Trafalgar’s boardroom is the very place where news of the ill-fated Titanic was broken. The boardroom, now a popular space for conferences and events, was also used in the classic Bond film Dr.No and the Ipcress File starring Michael Caine.

Filming at the hotel

The episode of Doctor Who, when the TARDIS lands in the square, was filmed from Vista Rooftop Bar. The rooftop was also been used for filming scenes for EDGE OF TOMORROW starring Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt, NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM 3, XXX and SWEENY TODD. The hotel is also a popular location for TV shows with filmed interview links for Britain’s Got Talent, X Factor and Britain & Irelands Next Top Model to “scenes” from Made in Chelsea.

Celebrity hotspot

Celebrity guests to the hotel have included Jenson Button, Ray Winstone, Cuba Gooding Jr, Tom Cruise, Emily Blunt, David Hasselhoff, Nicole Scherzinger, Rio Ferdinand, Dynamo, Dizzee Rascal, Ellie Goulding, Pixie Lott, Alan Carr, Gary Barlow, Keith Lemon as well as other regulars to Vista and Rockwell Bar including Boris Johnson, Lord Seb Coe, Beverley Knight, Olympian Louis Smith, Jessica Ennis and Chris Hoy.

A Hilton property but not as you know it:

As the first unbranded Hilton property, you will not find the blue hilton sign; instead you’ll enter a striking building with a clock and union jack flags. Chic purple plant pots line the entrance – look out for the hotel’s distinct four lions logo.
