Thistle Hotels

Thistle Hotels have eight hotels in the London area that are all very central and well placed for exploring different parts of the city. Most of the Thistle Hotels in London have four stars. The hotels are on the whole quite reasonably priced although if you choose a Thistle Hotel in the very centre of London it will cost a lot more than if you choose one in say Kensington or Holborn.
