    Great location”

    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 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.

    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

    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!

    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.

    Explore London”

    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.

    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.

    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.
