Stayed here for a night with my husband to see a show. Wonderful location, walkable from Kings Cross and 10 minutes into theatreland and restaurants. Location couldn't be beaten, and hotel spotlessly clean, friendly, very reasonably priced and newly refurbished. What more could you ask?

I was on business trip and this hotel is in the best location and was very comfortable.. the staff was very helpfull and kind and it feels like a luxurious hotel. The only downside i had is people coming back late at night making noise- but that can happen in any hotel. Plus the location is great!

The hotel is very handy for Holborn tube station, so therefore close to the main London attractions. The staff were all very welcoming and helpful. The rooms, although small, are comfortable and well equipped with everything you'll need during a stay. I would definitely stay here again when I have another trip to London.

This hotel has a lot of positives. Great location. Nice spacious rooms which are up to date and a nice period feeling to the whole hotel. The breakfast is not the best, one could even say that it is sub-par. However the little Italian café around the corner towards British museum makes up for that in abundance. Service is as...

First time I have stayed in a Thistle hotel as I usually stay in a IHG hotel, but I have to say this hotel is excellent. Great staff, lovely room with good aircon and a comfortable bed and a lovely breakfast.

You can't fault the location of this hotel for getting around London. The rooms are good and recently refurbished and the staff were attentive without being intrusive. Would recommend for a stay in central London.
