Andhika N. Families with older children Indonesia, January 1, 2015
Beautiful tiny hotel near to places to eat

The room is clean and neat. It's quite small, especially the bathroom (more specifically the shower). Near MRT and restaurants in the vicinity.

We were a 5-party traveling group. We purchased one room of triple and and another a double. However they've upgraded our double room to be a triple. The bed itself is very comfortable. We only stayed for one night, and with super early flight we didn't get a chance to enjoy their breakfast. But I would come and stay again given the opportunity. Please note there's a gas station right next to the hotel, and Asian restaurants in the vicinity.

Lack of capable staff

Location / Breakfast/ shower
5.3
We stayed here for 3 days. Typical London room, you cant even swing a cat in it, very small. But the bathroom is nice, shower pressure is nice. The housekeeper is hopeless, she didnt even make the bed or wash the cup we used. v hopeless! No one answer the phone after 10. No Bell boy whatsoever, carry your own everything, but they have 3 very small lift. The entrance to the hotel is stairs they have ramp on the side entrance before the parking space. Park is 24 GBP/Day. The breakfast is good value 12/ Adult. Among all the staff i think James is the one who work harder than others. Location is across the Hyde Park, and there is Little Waitrose on the Ground Floor. No Fridge. No Bottle Opener. No Beer Glass. Very Basic, doesnt even deserve 4 stars.

My stay was exceptional, for £119 a night in central London ~ please don't expect to stay anywhere better for this price... The staff were incredible. It is a one minute walk to the Hilton Hotel and the underground is below that. The staff were great, and also the breakfast was very tasty! Nice to wake up to after a comfy sleep. it cost £6 in a black cab to Oxford Street (Main shopping district).

Clean rooom , good location , good service

the staff were great , the rooms were decently sized and it is only 100m from the tube station
9.3
I had a good time at the thistle hotel. From the outside it isn't much to look at as it is just over a petrol station. However once you get inside the staff are friendly , the fixtures and fittings are modern and the rooms are reasonably sized and clean. I would definitely recommend this for business trip stay or a holiday for that matter as the park is next door and the underground station is less than 100m away. In summary great hotel , good location ,good food and would definitely would recommend it.

Great location, service and value for money

If was good and memorable. Although we felt the room was slightly small and that bedroom slippers could have been provided, it was located very near Queensway station and easily accessible to almost any attraction easily and quickly. Staff were very friendly and helpful too.

9.7
Our stay at this hotel was just fantastic...from arrival to departure..it just shows how a hotel in central London should be run. We were given a warm welcome from the happy professional staff. Who proved to be very helpful when we needed to print off some tickets...a nd though we didn't eat in the hotel the atmosphere in the public areas were quiet warm and comfortable All in all the hotel made for an ideal based for our weekend adventure in the capital and can highly recommend using it as a based should you up in the city
