"excellent hospitality "
Very warm welcome, friendliest staff I have ever experienced in a British hotel. We will be back.
Minimal tea and coffee making faclities in hotel room. Good comfortable bed, cosy and warm atmosphere. We specified when booking that we would like breakfast included, and we were charged. Misleading. Staff at reception had minimal understanding of English which made check in instructions slightly uncomfortable. Little guidance given from dining staff on how to get food items upon entering breakfast. Room was very clean. Good soundproofing from outside noise. Excellent location. Would recommend to others.
"A really good experience."
Our first time at this hotel but definitely would revisit. Our room on the 5th floor was delightful and a lovely shower. Really quiet surrounding and a very comfortable bed. Didn`t have breakfast but plenty of good cafes close by. Staff at this hotel are so very welcoming and helpful. No negative points.
Everything was great
Hotel and room were nice and clean but room door let to much light in from lobby and curtain were to small for window so more light let in, glass shower screen leaked water all over bathroom floor, but they were going to change us into another room if wanted and weren`t checking out that day
Don`t be put off by the outside façade this is a lovely hotel, The staff were friendly and very helpful our only gripe was the height of the ceiling in the shower, abit low.
Good hotel lovely room, good food, only disappointment was there was no bath in room only a shower.
"Thistle Trafalgar Square"
The hotel couldn`t be better situated for central London, Hotel staff were all very helpful and friendly. It was my sisters 40th Birthday and they surprised her with a lovely bottle of wine, chocolates and a birthday card waiting for her in our room. Rooms, really good size, very clean and beds very comfortable, the Shower was amazing, the breakfast was lovely too, lots of choice and tasty. Will be staying here again. Thank you to all the staff we met during our stay.
"Hotel very clean, excellent location and friendly staff. Breakfast (extra c a little disappointing"
"Tiny rooms excellent location"
Friendly staff but what a tiny room! Hotel is clean and comfortable and is perfectly situated but doesn`t warrant the star rating.
"Perfect luxurious hotel"
Excellent hotel. Friendly, helpful staff, from booking, pre-stay request/arrangements. They upgraded our room, and arranged for champagne and chocs on arrival. Made us feel really special.
I really couldn`t fault it in any way. A really amazing weekend.
Well placed for The West End. Accommodation small and basic but clean. Friendly staff at reception. Noise from adjacent construction site starts 8am. Just a place to stay.
"Bland, Beige, Boring"
Hotel made more lively by construction site next door...not aware of this prior to booking.
This is such a lovely hotel. Very central, fabulous price for central hotel, fullOf architectural character due to the museum. Unable to rate anything other than fabulous
Nice central location. Check in quick and efficient. Room was a good size with a nice powerful shower. Staff helpful with giving advice/suggestions on what to see and when. Would recommend this hotel.
"Thistle Trafalgar square"
The Thistle hotel is clean, impressive and very reasonably priced. It was also perfect location for where our show (Phantom of the Opera) literally just down the road.We were impressed with the politeness, helpfulness of the very smartly dressed staff. Our room was spotlessly clean and the shower was big and another bonus was that it was a walk in shower which made it easier for me to use.We ordered room service because the price was so reasonable, it actually worked out cheaper to do that than eat out. The price may have been cheap but there was plenty of food and it was delicious.Breakfast in the morning was just as good. Again the staff went out of there way to make sure we were satisfied with everything.The management of this hotel should be extremely proud of their staff.We shall be returning there next time we come to London.
Had to query bkd room as it was a standard and had paid for an upgrade, tv didn`t work in room. Works were happening opposite hotel so couldn`t sit outside. Hotel service poor. Would not choose to stay there again
"Excellent place would definitely return"
Right in the thick of things this hotel was fab ! The staff were very helpful and attentive especially Lilly ! The rooms were great and finishes to a good standard.
"Expensive for small room"
Good location off trafalgar square but very expensive for the size of room. Staff friendly and helpful .
"2nd time of visiting "
The hotel was great upon arrival, we where offered and accepted a free upgrade. GreatWas looking to book again in the near future but at the last minute was disappointed with checkout. There was one couple in front of us and we waited our turn to check out when Lazlio interrupted the 1st couples booking in, leaned over the desk put his hand out and took our room key.. I said we would wait until he had finished as we wanted to order a taxi. Lazlio replied to us " go to the end of the the street and get one, I`m too busy". Not a great end to our lovely stay. A little disappointed
Having stayed at the Thistle Trafalgar on several occasions over the past few years we were a little disappointed at this visit.Quite apart from the impact of the ongoing building works adjacent to the hotel (over which the hotel obviously has no control) there is something missing from the previous aura of relaxed but professional atmosphere of the hotel. Difficult to pinpoint,but it`s almost as if it`s just marking time until the building site next door is complete.The staff remain cheerful and as helpful as they can be, the the hotel remains busy, even with the disruption.We may well stay here in the future but it`s more likely we will stay elsewhere at the next few visits to London.
"A lovely Hotel"
My parents had a great time and enjoyed their stay at the hotel, it was located next to the theatre that they were visiting to see POTO.
Good hotel, clean adequate room. Central location to get about. One complaint, no real bar to unwind in at the end of a long day.
"Central location great service"
