This is an amazing hotel, located in the centre of London, just a few minutes walk to Piccadilly Circus, Trafalgar Square and Theatre Land. It is walking distance to Oxford Street, Covent Garden and Regent Street so an ideal location for your stay in London. Rooms are air conditioned, with free toiletries and some have views over Leicester Square. The House Lounge Bar and Restaurant is the ideal venue to get away from the crowds and enjoy a relaxing drink and evening meal in comfort taking in the action of Leicester Square on our live link Screen. Situated next to Leicester Square the contemporary refurbished Thistle Piccadilly has an authentic Victorian exterior that states it's presence as a West End hotel.

PERFECT! PERFECT! PERFECT!!!!

My daughter and I stayed here at the end of June, our room was fantastic! We had a wonderful view of the street for some great people watching. The room was close to everything. I cant wait to be able to bring my husband back here if I ever get to come back to London :)

mediocre stay that turned good

Arrived at hotel but room was not ready at published check in time. Restaurant was closed also so was went to sister hotel 1 minute away for complimentary drinks as "it was their fault". Waited 1 and a half hours for room to be ready only to find airconditioning was out in the entire hotel and could not be fixed until the next day. As it was a hot day and we were on the top floor this was too uncomfortable so requested to be moved to sister hotel. Stay was excellent at Royal Trafalgar.

Air conditioning does not work and hotel staff was extremely rude!

TERRIBLE EXPERIENCE!! The hotel staff was extremely rude. Overall experience was appalling as A/C did not work the entire duration of our stay. Not worth the price!

Very Central but Very Blah

London hotels are crazy expensive so it's tough holding them to the same standard as (say) an average US city. The Thistle is a large older hotel with a tiny lobby deep in the center of Londons west end. It's on the edge of Chinatown and Leicester Square which makes it very noisy at almost any time day or night. The rooms are OK...clean, small and entirely uninspired. It doesn't offer any included luxury other than free wifi and the mandatory tea making essentials. The staff were pleasant....the Hotel is what it is.

3 steps to Picadilly Square!

Great location 3 steps off Picadilly Square. But exceptionally quiet! I was afraid of hearing the noise of Picadillly Square through paper thin walls. I was delighted to find quite the opposite - didn't hear a sound at night. The advantage of a great location without the drawbacks.

Great location

Very convenient for traveling around to all the sites we wanted to see. Tube stations are nearby, shopping and attractions are easily found. Our room faced the main drag where Ferraris cruised by revving the engines well past 1am, but other than that there was never a dull moment.

Use the tube, it is efficient and fun. If you look for Banksy street art you might be disappointed, it disappears quicker than the websites can keep up with it.
