Stayed in a family room at the Thistle Hotel. The room was very spacious and was very clean. On arrival, the reception area was very nicely kept and the staff were very pleasant and welcoming. The breakfast was very enjoyable and the staff were very helpful as we went with another family and they accommodated us with a large table in the breakfast area. Would have no hesitations in going back.

I was surprised how good this hotel was. It has free and fast internet, an excellent selection at breakfast, which was included in my room rate, a gym and is fairly priced. It is five minutes from Old Street tube. What more do you need?

Breakfast was incredible. Foyer area was excellent but room was average. For what we wanted (1 night in london a reasonable price) it was good but room was average at best and could do a but of a paint.

Hotel tucked away , ten minute walk to nearest tube, clean, with very efficient reception staff and reasonable. there is a spa with pool and sauna, did not have time to try it out.
Breakfast was or good standard with a selection to suit all tastes.

Room Tip: Rooms were a good size, clean but bathroom a little tired

The hotel was very busy during my stay - though it was the Easter break, so to be expected. My room was on the 5th floor, plenty of space, though with dated decor.... A great view of the London skyline made up for that!

The room was clean, and the staff friendly. The pool / steam room and sauna were an added extra, and the breakfast was plentiful. Not too keen on the evening menu - but (with a little exploring) - there were plenty of good places in the vicinity.

I'm pretty sure I'll be back :)
