Great location, friendly staff and very clean”

The staff here are very friendly and helpful. Fabulous breakfast buffet. Room was ok in size (401) however I do know other rooms were very tight for space. Cleanliness is excellent.. fresh towels, toiletries and bed made every day. The location is perfect... brilliant for sightseeing but also close to theatre area - we went Novelo Theatre.

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.

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.

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.

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.
