Had invited 3 friends from abroad to celebrate a special birthday in London as part of a Eurostar package. We were originally booked into the Piccadilly Thistle, but due to circumstances out of their control (a/c had broken down), we were moved into the nearby Thistle Trafalgar where we were treated in a most courteous way. It turned out to... More

Stayed here for my birthday in April 2014 with my boyfriend and received a free upgrade which was a lovely surprise. Room was lovely and spacious! Bed was huge! Close to shops, tubes, restaurants. We would definitely go back.

This hotel is perfectly situated to visit all the famous sights by foot. The staff is very friendly, the breakfast is elaborate enough (with show cooking). Had a great stay, on the footsteps of trafalgar square, leicester sq and all the interesting things.

My husband and I spent several days in London in June 2014 and stayed in a luxury suite in this hotel. The hotel location was ideal as it was within walking distance to many attractions, but yet tucked away from the noisy London streets. The room (suite) was phenomenal! Lots of space, exceptionally clean and modern and lots of amenities.... More

Stayed at this hotel for 6 nights. We were very satisfied with the hotel and location. Staff at front desk was courteous, however; certain individuals seemed to struggle with their English. Our overall experience was very positive. Pros: Centrally located to major sites such as Picadilly Circus, Trafalgar Square (literally next to the National Gallery). Rooms are very clean and... More

Well worth keeping an eye out for the deals here, the room rates can vary quite a bit. This hotel is comfortable, clean and modern. The staff are friendly and helpful and there is a good range on the breakfast buffet. One drawback for the business traveller is that the dining room doesn't open for breakfast until 7.00. Most importantly... More

Overall this hotel is centrally located, with a friendly staff and is well appointed. However, some of the standard rooms are quite small. Ours was tucked in the corner and almost impossible for two people to function. For the price we were disappointed in the room size, but everything else was perfect, had our stay been longer we have likely... More

Located in the West End, 5 to 10 mins walk to most theaters. 5 mins walk to Chinatown and Metro. Many restaurants and cafes in the area. You can also walk to Oxford Street, about 15 to 20 mins walk. Price is on the high but for its location and the standard of the room - very clean, good shower,... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
There aren’t many genuinely quiet streets right in the heart of London. But they do exist - and we’re on one of them. In fact, you might never guess that Piccadilly Circus and Leicester Square are within a few minutes’ walk. The Royal Trafalgar has the City on one side, Whitehall on the other and history everywhere you look. The National Gallery is literally next door, as is the square that shares our name. ... more   less
