Stayed for one night. It was an OK hotel. Room was small but functional, beds comfortable. Just felt the room was a little tired and needed sprucing up. Breakfast had a large variety of food, both hot and cold. Able to leave bags at hotel on last day and collect prior to leaving. All in all ok but not sure...

Stayed for a couple of nights over the Easter weekend, room clean and tidy, just a ten minute walk from Covent Garden and all the major theatres. Didn't use the restaurant so can't comment on that. Parked at the Bloomsbury SQ car park, the hotel clients get a discount there.

A very nice hotel. The check in was good, with a complimentary glass of Prosecco upon arrival! The rooms are very nice, clean, stylish. We did have a slight problem with the air conditioning not working in our room but a call to the reception and we were moved to another room. As we were only here for a theatre...

Stayed here in a twin room with my adult son who had whisked me away to see a play as a birthday treat. The Twin room was compact, spotlessly clean and very quiet - was amazed how quiet it was - perfect! A great location as only a 10 min walk from the Gielgud theatre with plenty of fabulous restaurants...

The Thistle is wonderfully located, two blocks from the British Museum and several excellent restaurants and historical pubs. The staff is friendly and very competent. The hotel shows its age, but it remains comfortable. Great beds. WIFI can be spotty and slow. Will be returning for a third stay soon.
