Brief but pleasant stay

Thistle Trafalgar's location cannot be better. It's at the heart of Central London life and within footsteps of some of the best attractions in London. The tube is very near and the hotel's surroundings are silent enough to rest well if needed.

Great location to downtown London

We only spent a short night at the hotel, since we just had an overnight layover. We were able to walk around town without having to use any other transportation. The hotel is at a perfect location if you would like to see London on your feet. The room was relatively small, but comfortable and nicely decorated. The hotel check-in staff was very nice and helpful. I would stay at this hotel again.
