                                  Excellent location.

                                  Room on top floor is not perfect. Thermal isolation is poor.

                                  Close to shopping location Staff are very freindly specially house keeping and porter

                                  Wash basin is not good for washing as the hot water and cold water are separet they should be in one tap

                                  The location was excellent, very near also to an underground and within walking distance to Oxford, Regent, Bond street, as well as Hyde Park and also Kightsbridge and the Natural History and the Science Museum. Overall, I recommend this hotel and intend to stay there again.

                                  the staff were poor, half of them didn't know what they were doing and couldn't speak English

                                  The location

                                  The dirty bathrooms. One day we were left just 1 towel, the next day no flannels. Bathrooms really need to be renewed, as do the windows- they are dreadful. The 1/2 hour queue for breakfast was unacceptable too, they clearly do not have the facilities to provide for enough guests. We ended up eating our breakfast sat on sofas in the bar.

                                  I liked the location and

                                  The bathrooms need to be updated. When you flush the toilet, it does'nt always flush. I don't like taking a shower and not having a closure. Too much water comes out. If the bathrooms were updated, it would be a plus...

                                  The traffic noise. Rooms need double glazing ideally

                                  The location was excellent only less than 5 minutes walk to Oxford street and the Hyde Park was very close too.also, the room is clean

                                  The hotel can't be classified as 4 stars hotel the room furnitures is very old though they convinced me to upgrade the room to an executive room and the breakfast in the executive second floor is very poor no good options only few ! Moreover, if you can't sleep in noise you won't be able to sleep there because of the noise all the night From the Oxford street !! Furthermore , the windows are very high I couldn't see the street ! Finally , no room service at night you can only call in the morning !!! I think if you book this hotel you will only pay for the location!

                                  1. Staff well trained and pleasant, ready to help with a smile. The heating wasn´t working in our room, they offered another room or a heater. Our original room (king size +) was large and pleasant. 2. Very comfortable king size bed.

                                  1. The long queues for breakfast! It´s not the best beginning for your day to wait about half an hour or more to be seated for breakfast. So we decided to pay (£5) for delivery of breakfast each morning. 2. Although the room was pleasant, its dated and shabby decor was a let down. For instance, the sofa in the TV area was so grubby some areas (where hands touch the most) had changed colour. The marble bathroom floor was horribly stained with splatters from yesteryear. 3. Wall between our room and the next was very thin and we could hear people next door talking well into the night. When we complained, the reception acted swiftly to stop the noise, though.

                                  The Hotel is located on Oxsford street, in front of the most worth store - primerk. and Next to a train station and buses in each direction, can be reached within 10 minutes all most any place in the city (Big Ben, London Eye, Portobello Market, etc.).

                                  Hotel food is not worth the money. Better not take breakfast.

                                  My business partner and myself have stayed at the thistle marble arch for almost 10 years and have found the hotel to be very welcoming the staff from the porters to management have always given us a warm welcome and always remember us on our every trip being 2 / 3 times a year stayig at the hotel to up to a week at any one time .We find the hotel to be very relaxing and we are most impressed with the refurbishment keep up the good work

                                  We find the price of the hotel smetimes a little pricey and sometimes feel that because we are regular users of the hotel that we could be on a better tariff .We stay at the hotel while we are on business in London .
