Comfort and friendliness galore

The staff at the Thistle Marble Arch bent over backwards to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable. They made our stay in London a delight, since the suite was well decorated, the bathroom clean and well stocked with toiletries, and the staff more than happy to help us with our luggage. I will definitely go backto this hotel when I go back to London, if at all possible.

There are many different restaurants close by. We sampled English and Italian cuisine, but there were also many mid-eastern and Indian restaurants within a short walk of the hotel.

Overnight stop whilst working in London

Absolutely unbelievable value for money. This is a very good hotel and the promotional price we were offered through Ebookers was astounding. The use of the executive lounge with complimentary drinks and breakfast alone was worth the price of the whole stay! If this deal is ever repeated I would arrange a trip to London just to make use of it!

Comfortable and convenient

Affordable and comfortable hotel. Some of the rooms towards Old Quebec side are a bit of a walk from the elevators. The rooms are equipped with refrigerators and a kettle which is convenient if you want to make a cup of tea. The location is excellent the rooms are decent sized.

Excellent Hotel for Central London stay

We stayed for two nights at Thistle Marble Arch in London. The room was excellent with all needed amenities. The staff were very attentive and helpful. The location is short walk to all Oxford street shopping and dining, a definite plus. We will definitely return to this hotel when we visit London next time.

As good as it gets

I have stayed 3 nights at this hotel. The location was WONDERFUL. I could get from the airport to the hotel by using the underground (Marble Arch station is just 1 minute walk away from the hotel) and thus saving a lot of money not having to pay for a taxi. The room was clean and spacious. The hotel staff was very courteous. I didn't have breakfast at the hotel (I noticed the long lines of people waiting to enter the dining room), but there are lots of coffee shops on Oxford street which have nice breakfasts at a reasonable price. To sum up - I will stay there again the next time I'm in London.

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.
