Great hotel in a great location! Would definitely come again

If you’re in London alone or with friends and you want a comfortable place to sleep while you go to the theatre or the National Gallery, this place will do that. The staff are polite and helpful, if easily thrown by even slightly unusual requests. But my bathroom was in disrepair, the shower thought warm water meant alternating cold and hot, and right now the place is surrounded by loud construction. Fine if you get a bargain price, but I plan to try other hotels for my next London visit.

Great as always. Never a question when booking this hotel. Staff, rooms, facilities always good, always reliable, and located right in the middle of the action.

not cheap but a good value given the location. My husband said the room was the best hotel room he ever had. The bed was bigger than even your normal king bed and very comfortable. There were interesting books on the coffee table to read as well. Everything modern and in great shape and complimentary bottled water! A+ place. Breakfast was extra but excellent as well. Parking not even a block away.

The best thing about this hotel is its location - very centrally located, close to many attractions, subway, restaurants hop on hop off bus stop. The rooms are super small. The bed in our room was full size at best - ok for one person, pretty tight for two. Bathroom in addition to being tight needs some attention, the tiles on the floor were uneven and missing grout.

Friendly staff and great!, great! location. Very nice hotel.

The hotel ia very good the breakfast was very nice the location is great

Thistle Trafalgar Square is centrally located. the rooms are well appointed and comfortable. the shower temperature and pressure is excellent. The staff was very helpful and accommodating. the elevators are small, but we never had to wait or had a problem so it is not an issue. there are no noise issues in the hotel or the area. currently there is construction outside the hotel so the area may be different once it is complete.

The hotel was great for this business trips. Good breakfast at hotel, surrounded my various places to , 10 minute walk to theater district and all our scheduled meeting locations.

Had a great time for a 5 days vacation in London! Great location and a comfortable room made it a wonderful stay!

Very good nice weather centrally located Would go there again

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.

Dear Valued Guest, Thank you for your feedback of the Thistle Trafalgar hotel. I am glad to hear that you had an overall good stay with us and that you enjoyed our superb Central location. I am sorry to hear that you found the bedroom small and the bathroom floor uneven. I would recommend booking a higher room category in future to allow for more space. I have spoken to our maintenance team regarding the bathroom and this is being investigated. We hope that you will give us the opportunity to welcome you back in the near future. Kind regards, Layla
