We booked a room here back in September and paid in full. Turned up today at 5pm after a long day to check in.... Was told there was no room for us! They had "over committed" themselves. I had called two days prior to confirm the room and this issue was not mentioned! Shocking service, would not recommend this hotel... More

Friendly staff on reception? Tick. Clean, tidy and comfortable rooms? Tick. Already you have a place that does the job if you're on an overnight stay in London. What surprised me the most was the pretty decent breakfast. I may be easily impressed but the scrambled eggs were excellent, soft and moist. My partner in crime, Itchymuff, also stayed here.... More

This is a good deal in terms of price, given the location, especially for business travelers looking for something within a government per-diem rate. Only real downside was the squeaky floors, but you get them even in the nicer and more expensive hotels in London. The new free WiFi is a great addition to the Thistle kingdom - works really... More

I reserved and paid for a double room. Upon arrival I was told that a double room was not available. I provided proof of the reservation and payment for a double. The desk clerk said there was nothing she could do for me. The room was tiny and not worth the price. I have tried to obtain a credit for... More

Hotels in London are pricey full stop. We were staying a couple of nights doing the touristy thing and wanted a room in a central area. Travelodge is £100+ and we got the Thistle for £110 per night room only. Its a very quick and easy walk from Holborn tube station and only 1 stop from Covent Garden if your... More

I stayed at this hotel for one night with my mum. The hotel was very reasonably priced - it's in the centre of London and we only booked it two nights before arriving there. The staff were very friendly and couldn't do enough to help. The twin room was very nicely decorated but it was quite small - however, it... More

Nice hotel and location disappointing the twin room I booked wasn't available and it took them til check in to let me know!!! Could only offer a double bed and after complaining received a complimentary drink as compensation.

The hotel is well located for West End, Covent Garden and the Aldwych Quarter. Southampton Row is a busy commuter road and therefore ask for a room at the rear of the building if you don't like street noise. The restaurant has a very limited and basic menu however there is a good choice of restaurants within a few moments... More

Stayed here for a week on business, at a very reasonable rate for London. The room was normal sized for London and quite clean, as was the bathroom. The bed was comfortable. The windows could be opened, which would be useful in summer as there is no A/C. Since they are single pane, even when closed a lot of the... More

This is my partner's second time at this hotel within the last month, she stayed here for a girlie weekend with friends. We decided to drive to London from Manchester to see the much talked about Poppy's around The Tower Of London. We choose this hotel as it was quite close to Euston (within walking distance) originally we were going... More
