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 sky bar in town. The Trafalgar is famous for being at the forefront of all things trendy, without a hint of pretentiousness. It’s easy to feel at home, whether you’re visiting London or a Londoner seeking a stylish setting to meet friends.
Home to London’s first nutritionist cocktail bar, Rockwell is well-known for its unique, inspiring and wickedly good cocktails. Not forgetting one of London’s best-kept secrets; Vista at The Trafalgar– the hotel’s star attraction. Located on the sixth floor, the open air rooftop bar offers truly astounding views. See the city’s skyline in all its glory and get up close to some of London’s most iconic landmarks as you sip on Champagne and enjoy alfresco dining. There is no place quite like it.
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.
The episode of Doctor Who, when the TARDIS lands in the square, was filmed from Vista Rooftop Bar and has also been used for filming scenes for EDGE OF TOMORROW starring Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt, NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM 3 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 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, Olympian Louis Smith, Jessica Ennis and Chris Hoy.
