"I was disappointed with the hotel which is situated on a very busy road and has a 24 hour garage in the forecourt, reception is on the 1st floor and the small lifts and dark stairwell's give the hotel a slightly claustrophobic feel. The staff were friendly, courteous and helpful. The room was comfortable and clean but only contained a television and the only refreshment available in the room was a small bottle of water and a glass."

"Good and easy to find."
 
"Old, ugly hotel. The price totally inappropriate and pricing on Hotel.de was misleading. Taxes were not included, and the exchange rate in euros was overpriced. Thus, from 119 GBP to Hotel.de at once more than 170 euros for one night without breakfast! The staff interested in this at all.,"

"Not enough staff in the breakfast room and it means there are delays such as waiting in the lobby to a seating in the breakfast room despite free tables and slow control."

"The price-performance ratio probably unbeatable in London. An upgrade for 20 Pf and for a really nice room with views over Hyde Park was worth it."

"I am aware that hotels in London are generally very expensive, but at this hotel it's not front and back. I'm going to do in the future a big bow around this hotel. As I am often in London, I also know some other hotels in the Thistle group. These I will not stay in the future."
