Nothing we really enjoyed staying at the Thistle and will repeat it whenever in London or in other cities if they are there

size of standard room is very small
Good location Rooms small but clean Helpful staff
Breakfast seemed unorganised with not enough staff
Good decoration and furnishings through out. Clean comfortable bijou room ideal for a short stay in London when all you need is somewhere to rest your weary head after a long day out around London, Staff exceptionally cheerful and helpful
Bit un nerving seeing the petrol station under it!
All parts of the hotel
Wow, how refreshing a London hotel with freindly, helpful staff, spacious room and excellent facilities. Would highly recommend.
Having to leave.
Great experience. We will be back next week
Lovely comfortable and clean room. Excellent selection and quality of food at breakfast .
The hotel is close to the beautiful park. Underground station is nearby. On the ground floor of hotel there is a supermarket (cheap prices). Breakfest was very rich.
Wi-fi wasn't so good in our room on the 8-th floor. A gas station is close to the hotel, but this fact didn't disturb us.
We were allowed early into the room which was fantastic. Great location and helpful attentive staff.
Room excellent with fabulous view across Kensington Gardens. Breakfast was superb with a great choice.
Nothing really apart from some of the furniture in the room was a little bit dated.
Would not hesitate in recommending this hotel to anyone.just had short stay but very nice clean and staff very pleasant.
-Ridiculously small room!! -Smelly towels and pillows -Staff attitude -Dark room -I really do not believe that this is hotel is ratted above 8!!!
Friendly staff Comfortable bed Modern feel to the hotel Location for what we needed
Found the Wifi to be hard to access in the room
Excellent staff Excellent breakfast Lovely nights sleep Excellent wifi Excellent bus service outside the door
Everything was first class
Excellent location, close to Hyde Park, underground, buss stop, Oxford street, Kensington etc.. Clean and tidy hotel, executive room very good, wifi fine and fast, breakfast fine, and not at least very friendly and service minded personnel!! Good value.
a double standard room is too small for two people, the breakfast is expensive, I would not like to sleep in room nr 702, 802, 902 with stong radiation from 3G/4Gmasts -outside the building but close to my head!, the lifts are alert but narrow!
we had to pat extrafor our breakfast after asking you for hotels that included breakfast, this was embarising for me and my wife as i had to go back to our room to get some monry to pay for the breakfast we felt belittled with every one watching us.
Breakfast menu changing
The room service was fine. The reception services was excellent, paticularly the receptionist Maria.
The AC wasn't working in our room, so they brought us a fan instead. The room are so small for a double room. The reception is in the first floor was hard to us to reach with our luggage.
Good location, clean rooms and friendly staff!
Price is a bit steep
Breakfast buffet was said to be open until 10.30 but at 8.30 there was many items missing and being refilled right away. Otherwise the food was nice.
I booked a twin room - meaning 2 beds, since my son is a teenager and was given instead a queen bed room. The reception appologize and said that they upgraded me to a view to Hyde park. The point is when you need two beds in the room, the view is not really replacement, not very professional. The building outside looks quite not well maintained and is placed over a gas station.
