WE have stayed at this Citadines twice now - and I have to say that the location is unbelievable. Located on Northumberland Avenue, you are situated:
1. between Embankment and Charing Cross tube stations.
2. Next door is the Sherlock Holmes Pub (great for an easy fish and chips),
3. about 150 metres up the road is Trafalgar Square, The Portrait Gallery and the National Gallery.
4. Just behind the Portrait Gallery is where you can pick up your Pond Passes (and book other tours of London and its surrounds)
5. And about another 500 metres is Leicester Square (half price ticket booths as well as some of the West End theatres).
6. In the other direction, it takes about 5minutes to walk to the Thames, where you can see the London Eye
7. And if you are keen, it only takes about 10-15 minutes to cross the bridge and see Westminster and Big Ben in person.
I could go on - but truly, this location is fabulous.
The rooms itself - well there is one bedroom with a queen sized bed, a decent bathroom and a separate toilet. There are also two fold out beds under the lounge (yes there is a lounge/kitchen/.dining area, complete with hot plate, fridge, sink, crockery/cutlery and a dishwasher).
There is also free WiFi available 24/7, although sometimes its a big hard to get a stable connection.
Breakfast is also available (for an extra cost - I think 10 pound per person/day). But there are two coffee machines in the lobby area where any guest can make their own coffee/tea. Perfect for a take out caffeine fix before a big day in the city.

Ideal for a family visiting London
Our family of 4 stayed in a one-bedroom appartment here in Janury 2004.We found it quiet, clean and equipped to a very high standard. Having 2 young children, it was great having a separate bedroom for them - we find it impossible to get them to sleep if we are all sharing one room.Breakfast is available at £9 per head, but there is a small supermarket very nearby and with a well equipped kitchen we found making breakfast the easiest option for our family.Location could not be more central - trafalgar square at the end of the street, and the bridge over to the London Eye at the other end. Just round the corner from Embankment Tube station and an easy walk to Covent Garden.I can't think of a single negative aspect of our stay and would definitely recommend it.Not as cheap as a large family room in another hotel, but definitely worth it for the space, facilities and a decent nights' sleep without having to share with the kids!
I stayed here during the first week of January 2003. The hotel was reasonably priced at around $125 US.... the room had a pull-out couch to sleep on, and a very small kitchen complete with all the basic items to use when cooking. the lobby was bright and welcoming and included a computer for public internet use. the hotel seemed like apartments which would be great for business travellers looking for a place that feels like home, or for anybody looking for a good location at a great price.
Amazing location with great value and comfort!
My family of 3 stayed very comfortably in a studio apartment over Christmas. The room was clean, brightly lit, well decorated, and had just the right amount of furniture. We paid 12 pounds a night for an extra bed for our son and it fit nicely at the foot of the sofabed.
The location is unbeatable: half a block from Trafalgar Square, a reasonable walk to Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, COvent Garden, the palace, and shopping on Regent Street.
The staff was responsive, but there is no concierge service. We have stayed in London so many times that we did not need a concierge.
Having the kitchen was an amazing cost savings, since we prepared breakfast and dinner for ourselves. There was a nice 2 burner electric stove, microwave, dishwasher (!), and electric kettle. We shopped at a nearby Tesco (10 minutes) and the Covent Garden Marks&Spencers (15min)
We will definitely stay here again on future visits to London!
Best location in London!
Spent 2 weeks here in November 2003 and loved it. We had the one-bedroom apartment--costs a little more than the studio, but it was well worth it in terms of added space. The bed was comfortable, and the hotel was VERY quiet. Only 100 yards to the Embankment tube station, which is convenient, as it's on the Circle and District Lines.
Everything we needed was included in the apartment, for example, a fully equipped kitchen and TV/CD player. Because we stayed 2 weeks, the on-site laundry was a great plus. Internet access was free and located in the lobby. The best part of this location was the brief walk to Trafalgar Square and St. Martin's Cafe in the Crypt for lunch or dinner, (also free lunchtime concerts).
One of the best
Stayed here over a weekend in December 2003. It was a truely lovely place. We were very impressed by it's convenience as well as it's size, cleanliness, facilities, equipment etc etc. We had a twin studio which had sofa bed which was comfortable, a very well equipped kitchen with fridge & dishwasher. I clean and fairly spacious bathroom. We were also very impressed with the CD player we had in the room!! It's a great place, one side the Thames and the other Trafalgar Sq. Only 10 mins walk (if that) to Leics Sq/Piccadilly Circus therefore no taxis were needed on a night out!! Well worth spending that little bit extra to save a bit on taxi fare and it is also covered by some main underground lines!!! We'll definitely be back @ Citadines again - hopefully sooner than we think!!!
Orion's an Excellent Choice
The Omni is in a terrific location, within walking distance of many London sites and also near a tube station for those longer trips.
Variety of rooms but I had a studio both times and really valued the small but fully equipped kitchen. A convenience store about half a block away has breakfast snacks, coffee, tea, drinks, etc., and it's great to be able to store some food in the small fridge for those late-night snacks or to get you started in the morning. The nearby Sherlock Holmes has excellent pub food and interesting, friendly clientele who are always willing to talk to and help a visitor.
Citadines, exceptionally clean and quiet !
Stayed for one week at this hotel with extremely large clean rooms, very helpful and friendly staff. Bathrooms and kitchenettes superbly good and outstanding value - and very quiet. Walking distance to museums, great restaurants and entertainment area. Exceptionally good value. Will definitely stay there again!
Citadines Trafalgar was recently remodeled, and met all of our needs. Each room includes a tidy, fully equiped kitchen. Location could not be better- central to everything. Service was good, although there is not any maid service due to the "apartment" nature of the hotel.
Great location, nice hotel, lovely price
I recently spent 3 days in London and stayed at the Citadines Trafalgar Square. It's literally down the block from Trafalgar Square and close to the Thames and London Eye as well. Wonderful location!The hotel was clean and the rooms were comfortable. My sister and I had a studio apartment with a couch bed and another pull-out bed. The kitchen was well-stocked with dishes and other cooking and eating utensils and had all you needed to get by. Not much space to eat in the room though...Overall a really nice place to stay. If you're travelling on a budget I definitely recommend this hotel.
Convenient, clean, close to tube
...and all transportation. Grocery store near. Also the Sherlock Holmes Pub was next door. If you like to feed the pigeons, trafalgar squatre has thousands of the hungry critters. gem of a place to stay. It's near charing cross and the embanmkment and close to all the downtown action. The rooms are clean and offer a small kitchen. We have stayed there 2 times before.

We stagger from the plane at 8am (London time) and find our luggage, a SIM card, and a taxi to get to the hotels. We are staying at the Citadines, Trafalgar Square, where we stayed in 2013. Its a great location, right in the heart of the city, easy access to tube, buses, west end, Tesco's, Boots...its all easy walking distance.
We arrive …
Drove from Amsterdam, through Belgium with a rest stop, back into France to go through customs and board a ferry in Calais back to London. Four countries in one day. Wow. New record. It was sad saying goodbye to Giorgio and Xenia. They gave us hugs and Xenia got teary... Good old Cornish pasties for lunch on the ferry and the biggest cuppa tea ever …
... the Tower Bridge (aka that really famous bridge in London that is in a lot of movies). We were also close to the Tower of London and I got to see a Beefeater! And for those of you who don't know what an English beefeater is: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yeomen_War ders . We walked around the financial district for awhile before we decided to check out the Tate Modern art museum. On the way we say various buildings like Lloyds building and the Gherkin building. We ...
I can't really think of any reason to ever go to Canning Town. I don't mean that in a bad way - I think it's a lovely place. But there's really no core reason to go other than just exploring. One Saturday in September, that's what I decided to do.
