“An excellent stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

We spent three nights at the his hotel between Christmas and New Year. It has a great location with easy access to the West End and the Westfield shopping mall. It is a period property with many original features both in the public areas and bedrooms giving a welcoming and traditional atmosphere. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. Our room was extremely comfortable, spotlessly clean, with a high ceiling, an impressive chandelier and floor to ceiling wiindpws overlooking Hyde Park. Breakfast was serve in the pleasant dining room and was cooked to order. Thank you to everyone for a very enjoyable stay.

Dear Reviewer,

Thank you for your review of Thistle Hyde Park. We had a very successful Christmas with Party Nights and people generally enjoying themselves in and around London, I'm glad you were able to experience the atmosphere of the hotel at its best and hopefully we can welcome you back this year too. Thanks again for your review.

Kind regards

We've always had good experiences at Thistle hotels, and this Hyde Park location is no exception. Within easy walking distance of Lancaster Gate Tube, Bayswater and Queensway Tube stations, it is super convenient for getting around. Located opposite Kensington/Hyde Park, you can nearly walk everywhere in the city from here. Rooms are beautiful, well appointed and nicely maintained. WiFi is fast and reliable (really important to me for work). Book in advance and take advantage of their seasonal deals. Wished we had have stayed here longer! Tip: wander through Bayswater, go shopping at Whiteleys shopping centre, and head around the corner onto Westbourne Grove - enjoy a cocktail at the beautiful Westbourne House (corner Kensington Gardens Square), and try Loco Mexicano (one of our favourite restaurants in the area).

For the same (advanced non-flexible) rate we got you can get some really tiny rooms in London, so the size of our standard twin was a pleasant surprise. As a period property they don't have much choice over that. Staff were happy and helpful and the room was comfortable and relatively well appointed. If I was looking for areas of improvement I'd say the lack of power sockets (two available after the radiator was unplugged) was surprising, and the bathroom needed some love. Very short walk from Hyde Park station on the Central line and right next to Hyde Park so a great location.

Room Tip: The hotel is on a busy road so get a room not facing the park if you have trouble sleeping.

We checked in at The Thistle in August after a flight back from the USA. We were exhausted after a long journey and jet lagged so asked if we could check in early. The staff were really helpful and not only let us check in but even upgraded our room to enable our early arrival. The room was large and comfortable and we had excellent service throughout the stay.

A group of us booked this hotel for a work function. We all booked the deluxe twin rooms and we were very impressed with the size of the bedrooms and how well presented and beautiful the rooms are. The rooms have large mirrors which are very ideal for a group of ladies getting ready to go out. The size of the bathroom is very impressive and the showers are amazing. The staff always had a smile on their faces and ensured we received the best service we were very happy when we find a box of chocolate and slippers in our room. I would recommend the breakfast to every guest, the dining area has a great atmosphere and the food is amazing. Thistle Hyde Park is one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in with great views of the park and quick and easy transport links. Thank you once again to Mr Byrne and his staff we will be coming back again.

We stayed in a standard double bed hotel room. This rom was more suitable for a single person. There was a good view of Hyde Park but the bed was pushed against the wall which was ideal for a couple. The bathroom had no fixed shower, towel heater did not work and the paint on the ceiling was peeling away. In the bedroom no bedside cabinets or lights . On th plus side a comfy mattress and pillows. Being at the front of the hotel it was very noisy and could hear the trains. Very friendly receptionist.

Room Tip: Do not ask for a standard room or ask for a twin room
