Welcoming Hotel

Initially greeted by nice staff at check in. Room was large with comfortable bed. There was an evening meal deal, that was very good, with again nice staff in the bar / restaurant. One of the better hotels in this area. Well worth staying if you can get at reasonably cost. I would like to stay there again.

Central location

Pros: Location
Cons: Rooms updated
Location: Winter wonderland - Hyde park
Great location, just what we needed. Room was a little dated and bathroom had seen better days. However comfy beds, nice heavy curtains so no light coming through, plenty of room for the two of us. Nice friendly staff.

Dear TG, Thank you very much for taking the time to share feeback from your recent stay with us here at the Thistle Hyde Park. I am delighted that you enjoyed your stay, and that you found many aspects of our hotel to have worked for you. We are indeed very lucky to have an unbeatable location, with so many easy transport links and Hyde Park a stone's throw away, as well as a fantastic team who do whatever they can to make sure our guests have the best stay possible. I am also grateful for your comments regarding our blackout curtains; perfect if you are a light sleeper. We are also grateful for your constructive comments regarding the bedroom and bathroom, though I do hope that you were not too inconvenienced by these areas; while we try our best to maintain the classical styling as befits the hotel's Victorian roots, this should never come across as dated and I shall be looking into the room you were in with our Housekeeping Manager. I truly hope that we will see you in 2017, for another enjoyable stay; the team look forward to welcoming you back! Kind Regards, Clare Rasmussen, Hotel Manager

Chill out weekend

Loved the location and the hotel. Rooms could do with updating but they were very clean. Staff were brilliant, very helpful. Breakfast had lots of choice and everything served was fresh and tasty. Will definitely stay at this hotel next time we visit London.

Just what was needed

Great location and well-priced, especially during such a busy period in London. I've stayed in Thistle properties before and this followed the great experiences I have had previously - always a good option.

Short break

The location is fantastic very central but beautifully located opposite Kensington gardens. Room was very comfortable, clean and the staff friendly. We had breakfast in the hotel on the first morning but it was disappointing.

Wonderful stay

The hotel was perfect and my daughter and I had a wonderful stay, however, the room comfort would have got a perfect five if we could have shut one of the windows to block out the noise and the draft, which woke me during the night - but these were irritations and not a major catastrophe.

Valentines Weekend

I managed to get myself a very good price on this hotel, which made my overall experience more than satisfactory. The location is excellent, the room size good and the staff and check in process was simple and relaxed. Unfortunately, although we booked a double room, we were put into a twin (on Valentines)! And we were unable to change... The shower. Wasn't exactly a power shower. I've seen babies that produce more dribble than the shower does! In all I'd stay again, despite the couple of hiccups and technical faults.
