We were upgraded to an executive double which was lovely and the complimentary chocolates were most welcome! We could see Nelson's column and the London Eye from our window which was great. Room was clean, quiet and the large bed was very comfortable. Huge shower but no bath unfortunately. Also no mini fridge which surprised me. Breakfast was very tasty... More

Stayed there one night and had a standard double room - very nice room and great shower. Huge and a choice of shower head...loved it. Only one snag not enough shampoo/shower gel, I could have asked for more but thought it was trivial. Had breakfast the following morning. Buffet and all cooked very nice, not the powdery egg you normally... More

I've always been told never to judge a book by i's cover and the same can be said for this hotel, which is in a fairly unattractive 1960's style building. It isn't until you enter the Thistle Trafalgar do you find a warm and welcoming environment with extremely friendly staff and a modern facility with superb rooms and very comfortable... More

My wife and I just returned from a fantastic stay here. Reception and bar staff were fantastic, polite and professional. We went to London to celebrate my wife's birthday and to arrive and find out we've been upgraded AND for her to get a small gift and personalised card was phenomenal. We were on the 6th floor room 607 and... More

As mentioned in many other reviews the location of this hotel is superb; an excellent choice for visits to the national Gallery, theatres, great restaurants and all kinds of thing. The outside of the building is not very attractive but inside is well looked after and clean. Our room was a good size, the bed very comfortable, a good size... More

My husband and I stayed here for 8 nights in January. We were absolutely delighted with the location of the hotel, and the friendly and efficient staff. Being close to the theatre and all the attractions was fantastic. However, we did get a shock at our tiny room and found it difficult to find space for our luggage. Two large... More
