Ideally situated in the middle of historical monuments, guests have easy access to the namesake of this hotel, Trafalgar Square. This upscale hotel is known for its classic English hospitality and commitment to excellence, found not only in its beautifully furnished rooms, but also in its dining and drinking facilities.

This is a great location if you like to walk around London to get to major attractions like Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey, the Churchill War Rooms, St. James Park, the National Gallery, and Picadilly to name a few, and it is right behind Trafalgar Square. There are many places to eat, and to connect to other transportation such as buses, tourist buses, taxis and the tube (subway) is across the street.

Great central location. Usually stay away from the busy tourist areas but was pleasantly surprised staying at the Thistle Trafalgar Square. Perfect location just off the busy streets and walking distance to great shipping, Restaurants and entertainment.

Great location, clean, but poor facilities.”
The facilities were disappointing for nearly AUD$300 per night. It would be expected that you would at least have a fridge supplied for small waters or drinks you purchase, however this was not available. The room and corridors felt a bit dated and had an old library smell (musty). Location was great. Walking distance to a lot of areas, so the hotel was reasonable without being exceptional.
Comfortable rooms and great location!”
Central of London, Relax, Quiet and Free water
Dear Sarada, Thank you for your review after your recent stay with us. I am delighted that you enjoyed your stay, and hope to welcome you back in the near future. Kind Regards, Lise
Pleasant stay ”
The location was fabulous. Walking distance to food and shopping minutes away from Covent Garden and Soho. My only unpleasant memory is the old looking carpets in the rooms. Staff were excellent, helpful and friendly
Dear Tan, Thank you for your review. We are pleased that you found the hotels location so convenient during your visit to London and that the team looked after you during your stay. We do hope to welcome you back to the hotel again in the future. Kind regards, Milan
Tembo a lovely staff member exceptional, friendly, helpful, welcoming. Hotel so well positioned.”
Everything extremely good - one hitch, room 508 opposite the cleaners room, as they work from 7 am until 9 pm all you hear is their door opening then slamming shut continuously. We had to ask them to be quiet as they talked loud and animatedly all hours - they sounded like a party in a nearby room. They did try, but the door still slammed. We were up reasonably early, but there would be no sleep ins in this room. However we will stay here again, staff lovely , best location
Dear Elizabeth, Thank you for your review. We are delighted to hear that you had a good stay with us at the Thistle Trafalgar Square. I will be sure to pass on your compliments to the team. We hope it won't be too long till we see you return. Kind regards, Milan
Nice central Hotel ”
Very nice Hotel, Staff in reception was very kind and helpful, the Hotel is in an excellent position next to Trafalgar Square ideal for people visiting Theatres cinemas/shows , 10 min walk to Oxford street and about 15min to London eye.. You have most attractions and things you want in London around you! The only bad thing I have to say was the room cleanliness that was minimal to none and looked rushed and unfinished! After passing the info to the manager room was cleaned spot on and properly! Will be coming back again next time!
Dear Anastasios, Thank you for your review. We are pleased that you found the hotels location so convenient during your visit to London and that the team looked after you during your stay. I will be sure to pass on your compliments to the team. We do hope to welcome you back to the hotel again in the future. Kind regards, Milan
Lovely property- Great location ”
Lovely property and staff at a great location. And quiet. The windows are secure to the point that the sound of construction across the street did not enter the room. They were kind to me about having a post-Theatre beverage in the lobby. My suggestion based on seeing others comin lg in for the night would be to have a more complete beverage service at that time. The pubs close and guests want a place to relax, chat and wind down before going to their rooms.
Dear Nathan, Thank you for your review. We are pleased that you found the hotels location so convenient during your visit to London and that the team looked after you during your stay. We do hope to welcome you back to the hotel again in the future. Kind regards, Milan
Central location very easy to get to major sites and tourist attractions, lots nice eateries close by as well as on site restaurant. Staff are exceptionaly helpful and courteous, rooms very comfortable and excellent quality breakfast. There is a seating area in reception area that doubles as a bar. This only reason note facilties satisfactory rather than good.
Dear Fiona, Thank you for taking the time on sharing your experience with us. We are very pleased to hear our superb location was suitable to your needs and thank you for complimenting our bedrooms and facilities. The team was very happy to receive your compliments, and we all look forward to welcoming you back in our hotel in the near future. Kind regards, Tatiana
Great Location and Decent Rooms”
Great Location and decent rooms. Only thing negative was the water heater is disappointing. The temperature was inconsistent and can go from warm to hot suddenly which was very annoying when I shower.
Dear Kian, Thank you for your review. We are glad you had an overall good stay with us. However I am sorry to hear you experienced a maintenance issue in your room. I will speak to the team personally to ensure we do a more thorough check before allowing our guests into the bedrooms. I can assure you, this is not the level of service we aim to provide and would hope for the opportunity to invite you back to show you that we can fully meet of all your expectations. Kind regards, Tatiana
Great hotel but wary of location”
This hotel was perfect. Great room amazing bed and helpful staff. I was not so sure on location atvpresent as a lot of building work going on so access was down quiet alley ways which did not feel safe. Also there tended to be groups of drinkers on the doorstep.
Dear Heather, Thank you for your review. We are glad you had an overall good stay with us and our team looked after you so well. Please accept my sincere apologies for the nuisance caused by the construction works opposite the hotel. Whilst we understand this is a huge inconvenience for our guests, these are external projects handled by external and private companies. Please rest assured your concern about some unpleasant people near the hotel has been addressed and we are working with the local authorities in order to find a solution. We do hope to welcoming you back in our hotel in the near future. Warm regards, Tatiana

Joe & Kim P.”
The hotel is everything you need to be clean, comfortable and in an excellent location central to most of London's attractions and very close to many good restaurants at Piccadilly and Leicester Squares as well as Covenant Garden. The front desk and staff are a pleasure and helpful. Small convenience stores and sandwich shops directly across the street. This hotel is great value for sight seeing tourists.
Dear Joe and Kim, Thank you for taking the time to review us! I am delighted to see that you had a great experience with us, that you enjoyed the benefits of our superb central location and that the team proved to be friendly and helpful. The team and I look forward to welcoming you back soon! Warm regards, Tatiana
Fab location and quiet”
So convenient to museums, tube and theatres!!!! And yet, it’s down a tiny street and out of the fray. I stay here all the time. The only con is that there is no gym and the “bar and restaurant” are pretty minimal. But with so much at a stone’s throw- get out and find somewhere great!!!! Love this place.
Dear Leslie, Thank you for your review. I'm delighted you enjoyed our central location and that our team at Thistle Trafalgar Square looked after you so well. We do have a small bar in the Restaurant and we are surrounded with three bars within two minutes walking distance.We have a gym at our sister property the Thistle Piccadilly hotel within 2 minutes walking distance down the road from us that is available to our guests aswell. We look forward to welcoming you back for a future visit. Kind regards, Layla
We had planned to explore London and only had 1.75 days to do it. Not enough really but unfortunately upon arrival ate dinner at the Thistle. My wife got food poisoning from a chicken club sandwich. She was bed ridden for the full time we were there. I did mention the problem to reception staff who did very little about helping us until I posted negative comments on social media and all of a sudden they wanted to help. These days you need to be proactive not reactive, as they were. Our time in London was ruined as a result. The hotel is centrally located and very convenient to Leicester Square and trafalgar square, china town etc but I wouldnt eat there. Plenty of other options anyway.
Dear Michael, Thank you for taking the time to feedback on your recent stay with us. I am deeply sorry that you did not enjoy your experience with us and that you witnessed such service failures. Our Restaurant and Bar Manager Pavlos came to a mutual agreement with you during your stay with us. Please do contact Pavlos to discuss this further. I can assure you, this is not the level of service we aim to provide and would hope for the opportunity to invite you back to show you that we can fully meet of all your expectations. Kind regards, Layla
Nice hotel conveniently located”
Just between Trafalgar and Leicester Squares, this a great location for business or leisure travel. Within a very short walk you have two major tube stations and umptygrigg bus routes. Leicester Square and the area around it are going through a big building spree at the moment (May 2018) but I haven’t been badly affected by noise or mess. There are nice places to eat in all price ranges as well as movies (slightly fewer while the big cinemas in Leicester Square are redone) and theatres. The hotel is as clean and tidy as you would expect in this price range and the staff are mostly very friendly and helpful.
Dear Ceri, Thank you for providing your feedback further to your stay at the every hotel Piccadilly. I am glad to hear that you had a great stay with us and that you enjoyed the benefits of our superb Central location. The team was very happy to receive your compliments and we all look forward to welcoming you back. Kind regards, Layla
Friendly welcoming hotel in the heart of the West End”
The Thistle is a gem. It nestles right beside the National Gallery with Trafalgar Square to one side and Piccadilly Circus easy distance to the other. The staff were very helpful and friendly. We had booked the wrong date for our stay, and the manager Milano went out of his way to try and remedy this, giving us a cup of coffee while we waited. The room was large and on a corner with a view to Leicester Square. Shower was terrific. Breakfast offered a huge variety and was absolutely delicious. We had a wonderful stay and will stay again next time in London.
Dear Adrian, Thank you for providing your feedback further your stay at the Thistle Trafalgar hotel.

The team was very happy to receive your compliments and we all look forward to welcoming you back! Kind regards, Layla
Tucked away behind the National Gallery, off Trafalgar Square, this hotel is within walking distance of theatreland and many major attractions. Building works are going on all around it, but we found it interesting to watch from our window, and there was no noise that annoyed us. This was the second time we had stayed there.
The Best Location”
We enjoyed our stay very much
