Great location in London!

We stayed here for 3 days of shopping, sightseeing, and theatre. Entrance is one block of Oxford about a 2 minute walk to Selfridge' s and other major stores. Two block walk to Hyde Park for running and less to the Marble Arch central linetube for getting to Leicester square and Piccadilly circus etc for shows. The room was very comfortable and quiet. The only negative was the gym is small. My wife and I will stay here again when we return.

Excellent hotel

Only stayed for one night but the staff were extremely helpful, friendly and professional. The room was very clean, was very comfortable and perfectly situated in the centre of London. We ate in the Marmor Restaurant and the service and food was of very high quality.

Need Renovation in Rooms!

Our room was in desperate need of renovation - the furniture was very beat up! The shower head fell off while I was taking a shower! On the plus side, the lobby was very nice and the beds were super soft and comfortable. The location was great - right off Oxford Street and VERY close to the tube.

Filthiest hotel I've stayed at in a long time

I paid £150 for a night - fairly standard for a night in central London and the room was disgusting. Hairs everywhere and so many in the plug hole for the shower it would overflow within minutes. Reception really couldn't care less when I complained - just said "I'm sorry about that" and then a smile - no offer to sort. Aircon is so noisy you can't have it on and sleep, walls are paper thin. I've complained separately to the hotel and will not be staying here again

Tour of the UK

We stayed in the Thistle twice on this trip. On the first stay, check in was slow, we asked for a double bed but got to twins, and the bathroom didn't work well. On our second stay the check in went well and the staff was very helpful. The room was also much better. The location is great for tourists, there are good reasonably priced restaurants in the area, and the price is okay for London.

About four blocks away there is a street with 6-8 good small restaurants (ask for directions to Cote). Many of them have a reduce price menu if seated before 7 PM.

Great Hotel, If You Have Realistic Expectations

We stayed at the Thistle Marble Arch from April 12-15, 2013. PLUSES - Location - Right next to Oxford Street and the Marble Arch tube station. This has to be one of the best locations in London. Right on Main Street! The front desk - Our flight arrived at 6 a.m., so we tried to check in at 9 a.m. They worked with us and found us a room, even at that early hour. That was much appreciated. Value - We were very happy with the value. When you consider the location and the price, its hard to beat the value. MINUSES - Two minor ones. Furnishing and Carpets - The hotel needs an update. There was a leak in the cieling outside of our room that you could tell had been there for awhile. The furnishings in the room could also use an update. TV - The hotel has like 10 Arab channels. That's ok, but can we get at least one American one? I don't think that's asking too much. In summary, It not the Ritz, but we weren't looking for the Ritz.It's more like the Hampton Inn. I would absolutely recommend this hotel to a friend, and I would stay there again.

Great Location, Stylish, Friendly Staff

Fabulous 1920's style, great location on doorstep of Marble Arch Underground Station. We arrived on a very busy Saturday with a Wedding Reception in progress but staff were very friendly and helpful. Good standard of decor and cleanliness in the room. Will definitely return.

Good value in the West End

After a long search for a reasonably priced hotel, I found a deal advertised for the Thistle in Marble Arch. While we certainly did not have the best room in the hotel for the price we paid, we got a very roomy and comfortable space. It felt a little outdated, maybe in need of a little refresh but it was adequately clean and nice a quiet. Perfect price and location for these tourists!
