This hotel is just behind Oxford Street at the Marble Arch end which is perfect for easy access to the main shopping centre of London and within easy walking distance of other areas of interest such as Piccadilly Circus and Soho.
The hotel has an impressive lobby and sumptuous bar area. The rooms are a bit dated and in need of a freshen up although they were generally clean. The bathroom was in definite need of a make-over with very worn looking sealant at the base of the shower glass. The design of the bathroom means that the toilet is too close to the shower and makes it a bit tricky getting out of the shower (which is over the bath) and as a consequence it gets a good soaking every time the shower is used. The bed was a little firm.
We stayed in a 'quiet' room (as opposed to a street view room) and it was, as promised, quiet.
Beware the cost of cocktails in the hotel bar (£24.30 for two)!
Although not perfect I would stay at this hotel again mainly for the great location.
- 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
