With its iconic Nelson’s Column, majestic oversized lions and brightly-lit fountains, Trafalgar Square is not just considered the heart of this bustling London hub, but the very core of the city itself. Beyond this esteemed gathering place are more famous icons, as well as a disproportionate numbers of the city’s most popular cultural attractions including the National Gallery and many West End theaters.

Central location and a good hotel with friendly service. The breakfast was better than expected and we enjoyed the stay. I do not have more to report, but need to fill in the final characters for the review to be long enough.

Hotel's Favorite
We stayed in Thistle at Trafalgar square recently and we had great time from very beginning! We got the room before check in time that was very helpful. There is construction around the hotel but Janinna at the reception found the quiet room for us and made our stay, because my boyfriend has very light sleep. Breakfast was superb we enjoyed full English breakfast and went to the city. Location is perfect you can walk everywhere and hotel is behind the national gallery. Very convenient hotel with great and helpful staff we will definitely come back!

Not my first trip here over the years, but its a great wee hotel in a great spot between Trafalgar and Leicester Square, very handy for shops and museum. Stayed for 3 nights with friends for a trip to Tutankhamun Exhibit, rooms are a bit tired but not too bad as to spoil our stay, but very clean which is important to us and beds comfy. Breakfast very good and all staff were really nice and friendly.

Great location with good rooms. Friendly staff. A little bit expensive. ทำเลดีมาก พนักงานบริการดี แต่ว่าราคาอาจจะสูงไปนิดนึง ตรงข้ามโรงแรมมีร้านขายของชำสะดวกในการซื้อขนมเครื่องดื่ม แล้วก็มีร้านแซนวิสที่เปิดเช้า
