Thistle Trafalgar Square - The Royal Trafalgar, is located on a quiet street just off the lively Leicester Square, next to the National Portrait Gallery. Situated in the middle of the West End and the famous Theatreland area, the hotel is only a 2 minute stroll to the famous China Town, 10 minutes to Covent Garden and just a 5 minute walk to Piccadilly Circus. The perfect base to explore London, the location further benefits from being only a 7 minute walk from Charing Cross train station and less than 5 minutes from Leicester Square and Piccadilly Tube stops enabling you to easily access all that London has to offer. Recently refurbished throughout, the hotel now offers free super-fast Wifi with hassle free connectivity with no vouchers or emails required, making surfing the web and video calls to friends & families using smart-phones or tablets a doddle. Thistle Trafalgar Square - The Royal Trafalgar is home to Squares Restaurant, serving a selection of dishes using premium ingredients, with al fresco dining available on the terrace when the sun is shining. Along with the restaurant, the Lounge serves a wide range of drinks and snacks and is the perfect place to enjoy a pre theatre drink or relax and enjoy an afternoon tea in the adjacent lounge.

London Hotel for our anniversary trip

Great boutique hotel in a great area of London. Staff was friendly and helpful. Would recommend this hotel to everyone. Fifth floor is a bit earsier to navigate than the third floor.

Great value in central London

Stayed here on a 3-night visit to London. First time for my 20-yr-old son, and first time in over 25 years for me. This was a great base for our exploring. While being mere yards from Trafalgar Square, it was very quiet. Easy walks to lots of attractions, including Chinatown and Covent Garden for meals. Also steps from one of the bus stops for both main hop-on/hop-off bus tour companies. I will definitely check availability here first if I find myself back in London in the near future.

Amazing location

The hotel's location is unbeatable. Close to 3 tube stops, right near Trafalgar Square, supermarkets close by, and tons of restaurants. Easy to get to via the tube from the airport. Toilet is a little weird but otherwise it's great

Terrific three days!!

Because we had a limited number of days, location-location-location was very important and did not disappoint us. So near to art gallery, square, transportation and theatre district. We packed in a week's worth of enjoyment during our brief stay. Friendly and helpful staff.

Just perfect

Stayed there two weeks and the locations was great. Close to transportation, including day trip operators. The staff was courteous and the concierge very helpful. We're heading there again this summer.
