Fantastic Location
As usual, the location of the hotel is unbeatable. You can get on the Big Bus right at the corner, not to mention National Gallery is right there and so are many other attratctions. They are currently doing some construction nearby and Leicester Square isnt as accessible as it was before, but this is temporary.

Best location and value for money
Location, cleanliness and friendly staffs
We decided to book this hotel last minute as our earlier hotel booked was horrible. I am glad that I did and was pleasantly surprised. Hotel was right at the middle of Leicester square and Piccadilly circus. Excellent.

Very near to China Town for food and shopping.

Great location and friendly service

Thistle The Royal Trafalgar is located near Piccadilly Circus and leicester square stations, walking distance. Thus it's very convenient to many SOIs, e.g. it's directly opposite national gallery. and walk to london eye, thames river, big ben, westminster abbey, british museum are all a few minutes away. Staff are very friendly. Breakfast is quite okay. The only thing is room is a bit small but considering central location, this is quite tolerable.

Nice hotel
Great location, clean hotel with a modern twist and friendly staff
We stayed here for one night... The location is great very near to everything...Piccadilly Circus, Leicester square and Trafalgar Square are just around the corner...the room is a bit small but I guess this is pretty standard to UK... We only got problem with the shower which is a bit noisy... But otherwise I will recommend this hotel for its location and cleanliness....
