Staff at The Thistle were fantastic, up graded us to a room overlooking Hyde park, with large windows and beautiful views over the park. Lovely to sit and relax in the morning with a coffee. Would not hesitate to stay again, Handy to Paddington station, and there were bicycles to hire in the park.

They should teach their staff how to talk with others a person at the front desk named ( Barbra ) was very rude to us and when we told here that we will write this on every website we know she said go ahead. We talk to them one day before the checkout to tell them that tomorrow we want...

A small lobby but gives off a very comfy vibe. Very spacious rooms. Totally unexpected by London standards. Great English breakfast. They have a good restaurant with a few tables overlooking Hyde park. A great way to see the sunrise while having your breakfast. Good staff. A bit pricey but you get what you pay for.

Arrived in London very early in the morning after a long flight. Planned on leaving our luggage and finding something to do until check in time.

This hotel was booked for my birthday as a surprise and I have to say, I wish we had not stayed at this hotel.

We stayed at Thistle Hyde Park for a short New Years getaway. The location is perfect being right in front of the park and very close to the attractions of central London. The note itself exudes elegance in all the vintage touches given to it. It has been designed to make you reminisce of old styled buildings. My favorite touch...

We were fortunate enough to stay here on a super cheap rate £90 for the room with breakfast, if we had been paying full whack, id probably have been a bit miffed with the rooms. We were very kindly upgraded by the reception team as we stayed right before Xmas. Was a really nice gesture. The rooms lacked plug sockets...

My wife and son and i stayed 3 nights. The hotel is situated on the northern edge of Hyde Park. It is a 5 minute walk to Lancaster Gate tube station, and a 15 minute walk to Paddington Station. The room was adequate but as with many old buildings in London, it needs renovation. The layout and electrics were quirky....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Thistle Hyde Park dates from Victorian times, with a cosy, relaxed atmosphere reminiscent of a Pall Mall private-member's club. A refined, intimate building, it is a comfortable base from which to enjoy the nearby West End, Oxford Street and Mayfair. Within walking distance of Lancaster Gate and Bayswater Underground stations and a literal stone's throw from multiple bus stops, you'll find it easy to get from the hotel to wherever it is you wish to visit in central London. What's more, you have the luxury of two of London's finest public parks just across the road from the hotel entrance - perfect for a morning stroll, weekend picnic, or letting the kids run off all the excitement of a holiday in the City. ... more   less
