The hotel is originally an Art Deco building, very much more appealing inside than the rather dowdy exterior and despite modern refurbishment some original features remain; the new decor is very sympathetic to that Art Deco style. A well equipped, tastefully decorated, air-conditioned room and we were told that we were the first to occupy it since refurbishment!! Everything brand... More

I absolutely adored this hotel. I was blown away as soon as we arrived at the door and received the friendliest welcome from the doorman Michael. All of the staff were fantastic here and are always asking if there is anything else they can do to help you. Our room was beautifully decorated and CLEAN not one speck of dust... More

After booking this hotel through insight vacations we had high expectations for a great experience.Sadly to be disappointed right from check in. Arriving about 4pm from an international flight we were told our room wasn't ready. The reception did decide to pop us in another room on the top floor. After a long walk from the lift passed buckets full... More

For tourists the location is great, at the end of Oxford Street right next to Marble Arch. The room was quite good for central London and was air-conditioned which was very welcome on such a hot day. Check in and check out was long. However, my real moan is as follows. Having checked in and got to my room I... More

Loved the location of this hotel and they did a great job. Clean, elegant/nice looking once you are up to the lobby on 1st floor (ground level not so nice looking as location on back street - helps with lowering Oxford St traffic noise though), and friendly staff. Included breakfast and restaurant also great. Only complaint was that bathroom was... More

Plusses – nice room, tube station below, across from Hyde Park Minuses – gym, expensive internet. The Hotel is located a stone’s throw from the Marble Arch tube station. It is surely a tourist hotel, with a crowded lobby, but check in was very quick and smoothe, and the room was excellent. Very good size, good bathroom with decent amenities.... More

We were booked in here by the tour company. It seems to be a popular hotel for tour groups. The Reception, upstairs, was luxurious and the rooms were standard for this class of hotel. You need to take a cut lunch with you to reach some of the rooms, quite a walk to some rooms. We were only staying here... More

I recently came to the hotel for afternoon tea and was very impressed. The hotel itself is very nice and welcoming. The tea itself was lovely and the service excellent. Alice and Steven in particular I would like to thank. They were very friendly and couldn't do enough to make sure our afternoon was pleasurable and there was no rush... More

This hotel is amazing for its location. It's nice. It's clean. It's nothing spectacular. Reliable. Predictable. Always ok, never outstanding. You can stay as a family, a couple, a solo traveler. Nothing special but professional, courteous and a stalwart on the london hotel scene. Can't really fault it.

The Thistle hotel was a great place to stay. Nicely decorated, clean, warm, very comfortable beds and excellent service from all areas. A delicious buffet breakfast was available and the hotel staff are willing to provide assistance at all times. Having stayed at 5 star hotel in London after this hotel...I would prefer the Thistle.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Thistle Marble Arch hotel, located just off Oxford Street, takes its name from one of London’s best-known landmarks. Originally built on the Mall as a new gateway to Buckingham Palace, the Arch remains an exclusive thoroughfare as only members of the royal family and the King's Troop, Royal Horse Artillery, are allowed to pass through it.As the name implies, the Arch is made from Italian white Carrara marble, a favourite material of the Art Deco movement in the 1920s and 30s, when Thistle Marble Arch was built. Today, the hotel is one of the few genuine Art Deco buildings left in London.It is also one of the few larger Oxford Street hotels with 692 bedrooms, including 281 deluxe and executive rooms and Suites. We also have our own Just Gym workout facilities on-site, an alternative to a brisk stroll around nearby Hyde Park. ... more   less
