Positive Reviews

Hotel staff will do all they can to help

Londoners can be a little frosty sometimes, but not in this hotel The staff are incredibly enthusiastic, courteous and friendly The atmosphere they create is lovely and they'll go out of their way to assist you Be sure to ask them about the surrounding areas, as they are very knowledgeable on the subject.

You couldn't get closer to the heart of the city

Sometimes, location is everything Thistle The Royal Trafalgar is pretty much perfect in that respect With the world-famous Leicester Square on the doorstep, as soon as you leave the hotel you'll be in the heart of London So many attractions are within a short walking distance, not least the National Gallery and Portrait Gallery With Oxford Street in one direction and Covent Garden in the other, shopaholics will love the area and it's ideally placed for a trip to the theatre.

At bedtime, you wouldn't know you're in London

While you'll be sleeping in the bustling belly of the city, the noise levels at the hotel are surprisingly low Add to this comfortable rooms and you're in for a good night's sleep.

Negative Reviews

You might not get the biggest room ever

As is the case with many major cities, the standard rooms can be a little on the small side Add to this the fact that some of the furniture, such as chairs and lamps, are quite large and you might feel a bit cramped.

Breakfast time sure can get crowded

There is no doubting that the breakfast at Thistle The Royal Trafalgar is good, but this means at peak times it can get a bit overrun in the restaurant Not a big deal really, but you might have to wait a while for your eggs.

It's hot then it's cold - with little in between

It can be hard to get a comfortable shower temperature It jumps from very hot to very cold!
