“Lovely weekend”
Reviewed 2 December 2013 via mobile

We stayed 2 nights for a weekend break in London,it was great right next to station and very handy. We checking in at 12pm and was able to get in our room before 3pm which was great. Was bit shocked we were told where and when breakfast was and found that out ourselves in room. The room was clean and tidy lots of room. Maid came second morning. Overall very nice stay will go back :-)

We stayed at The Thistle for a 2 day break and were very impressed. As previous reviewers have said the hotel was spotless.
The staff from the moment we arrived were helpful and friendly. No problem at all sleeping, couldn't hear any noise.
The breakfast in the morning was lovely, overall we wouldn't hesitate to go back again.

Stayed there last week.
5 min walk from Euston station which makes it easy to access the rail station and the tube.
And yet, the area is quite noisy. You could hear the noise from the main station.
My room was in the second floor.
Room is cozy and clean.
Comfortable bed. Very good, free WiFi everywhere around the hotel which is nice.
Breakfast is fair. English breakfast. Stuff were friendly.

Taxi service to Heathrow in only 50 pounds. (To get there from Heathrow I paid almost 80 pounds)

My only negative feedback is about the fact that you can actually hear what goes around in the neighbor room.
I could actually hear the people talking in the room next to me. And when ever they shut their door, my bed was moving. I guess thicker walls pr better isolation would help...

Dear Gal,

Pleased you were impressed with the quality of stay that you had here at the Thistle Euston. We do have extremely comfortable beds and get complimented on these all the time; we have the fastest WIFI in London for our guests.

We do have a brand new noise policy that we are working on, which will see us putting a lot of money and effort into making sure our noise levels are low at all times from other rooms.

I hope that when you come back to London you would consider coming to stay at Thistle Euston.

The reason we stayed at the Thistle Euston was the proximity of Euston and St Pancras stations for our travel arrangements. However, that is not all that is going for this hotel and I would definitely stay there for an extended stay on returning to London.

The hotel is quite large although from the outside does not appear so. The hotel has undergone recent refurbishment and is exceptionally clean. The open design of the foyer upon entry gives you that impression as soon as you enter. The staff are terrific - courteous, friendly, present well, professional. In addition to the reception staff the foyer staff were extremely helpful and whilst waiting for our room we were able to observe their reactions to the many many requests that were directed at them by customers. In all cases their interaction was pleasing to see - to the initial approach, the listening to the question, the reaction and response to what was being asked and the body language after the customer had left!

The rooms, especially the one we had, was spotlessly clean and supported a king size bed which for us was extremely comfortable as were the pillows. We had no problem with corridor traffic or outside noise even considering we were station side on Cardington Street. The bathrooms were spacious and tidy and well presented.

Included in our hotel price was a full breakfast which was great.

The Thistle Euston pricing varies quite a lot and equates very well to other London hotel prices. However, the Thistle continually offers frequent promotions (including reduced rooms rates, 2 nights for 1). If you can grab one of these for your stay you will be very happy.

And did I mention the location? Ideally situated 150m from Euston station in Cardington Street, just off Euston Road, easy access to the train (underground, overground, nationals and international) system, there are buses on Euston Road and for us the hotel is within walking distance from the main London attractions.

Highly recommended.

Room Tip: This hotel has 360 odd rooms and they seem to want to please. So just ask.

Dear Guest,

First of all thank you for choosing to stay at the Thistle Euston. I am pleased that you have a taken the time to communicate your experience – what a positive one!

We did recently go through a large refurbishment, we wanted to open up the lobby as you said to make it inviting for all of our customers staying with us. We have also put a lot of money into training recently to make sure that we are engaging with the customer on every bit of there overnight stay with us, we do have excellent staff who really want to get to know all of our guests.

Our location is perfect we like to call ourselves “Gateway to the North” and only 10 minutes for the Eustostar, which means Europe is not that, far either.

Please on your next trip to London come and stay with us again maybe venture around our local area Camden, we do have 362 Bedrooms so if there is a room you prefer please do ask and if we have availability we would be more than happy to keep that one for you!

Thanks

I stayed at the Thistle last Saturday night. On arrival and check in, the staff were really friendly and welcoming. The room was clean and comfortable and breakfast the following morning was excellent - and again, the dining staff were really good. I'd definitely stay here again and would recommend it to anyone needing to stay in London.

We stayed here for two nights and paid around £60 each per night including full english breakfast which was great value for money in London. A short walk away from Kings Cross and Euston underground stations. A ten minute walk to Camden which is worth it for the fantastic high street and market.
The room was spotless and cosy. No corridor noise at all. Great shower, tea and coffee, iron and ironing board. Plenty of wardrobe space, and for the ladies a great mirror near plug sockets and with good lighting.
Full english breakfast, juices, cereals and good quality too.
This hotel was ideal for us and we will def go back.

Dear Jayne,

Sounds like you had a brilliant time staying at Thistle Euston, after going through our refurbishment we did want to give our customers features that will benefit them including plug socks being available next to mirrors and a lot of wardrobe space.

I am pleased you were impressed with breakfast that we have on offer and you were able to venture out into Camden and the near by the attractions.

I look forward to welcoming you back into the hotel.

The room might have been a little small but it was comfortable even if the bed was firmer than we were used to. Breakfast was good although the room got very busy. Without exception staff were pleasant and attentive. The hotel is easy to find just a short walk from Euston station. Nearby underground and bus stops give easy access to all the main attractions, for example we caught the 29 bus to Coventry Circus for a theatre visit and the 88 bus to Tate Britain. The only downside for us was that our room (number 123) had an air conditioning unit directly outside and so had disturbed sleep until it quietened down.

Hi John,

We definitely are in a brilliant location with lots of attractions available right at our doorstep, we do have the best transport links and I am pleased you were able to take advantage of this.

I will pass on this comment to our maintenance department and will get the air conditioning looked at as soon as possible, although it has mostly likely already been looked at.

I hope to welcome you back to our hotel in 2014.
