Thistle Trafalgar Square Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

What a great place to spend a couple of days in London. Very friendly staff and clean Central to everything, literally a 10 minute walk to every place you want to visit.

We were very happy with the size of the room, coming from the US we didn't expect this. The location is perfect. Bed was comfortable and room was very clean. Sofa sleeper for the kids was small but we were able to put our youngest in bed with us. Overall a great stay!

We could not have asked for a more perfect location. The staff was friendly and helpful. The third floor room was spacious, quiet and clean. We would definitely stay there again.

Stayed here twice in last 3 weeks and each time room was great, reception was great. Best location in London for touring this wonderful city!

The Hotel was very centrally located and I was able to get everywhere by walking and subway. The staff was friendly and courteous and the room was clean and pleasant. A really good deal in terms of price.

The standard room is small but adequate if you plan on being out and about seeing London. If you want more room, book an executive level room. We had two issues, one with a power breaker tripping and the other with a small leak in the bathroom. Both were taken care of immediately and with China nicer for our comfort during our stay. Anna, at the front desk, was amazing at handling these issues and rectifying them with the least amount of intrusion on our stay. The location is awesome. A straight shot from Heathrow on the tube. It costs about 3.10 pounds person. From the hotel we walked to the London Eye, Buckingham Palace, Victoria Station, Pucadillly Circus, of course Trafalgar Square, and Big Ben and Westminster Palace. Definitely would stay here again when we return to London!

Great place. Central. Staff very helpful. I really enjoyed my stay here. Room was very clean and comfy. Very roomy for London. Also close to many central attractions. Staff helped plan out some sight seeing. Also wifi was great.

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.

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.

August 1 to August 12, 2015 Highly recommend Great location, service and clean

I would stay again. No mini bar or fridge but clean and easy.

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

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.

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.

The Thistle Hotel at Trafalgar Square was the perfect hotel in the perfect location within walking distance of National Gallery, Churchill War Museum, Piccadilly Circus, theaters, pubs galore! It was on a quiet street and close to The Tube.

Great Location - close to theaters and historical places. Staff was very helpful to arrange everything.

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.

Nice place. Nice hotel room. Very convenient location. I would stay here again. It's very conveniently located for public transportation

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.

The staff was terrific! The room was not. I would not recommend staying here.
