... you may be thinking. Give two teenage girls a map and just sit and enjoy the confusion. Upon finally figuring it out, we took a couple of trains to Exhibition Street and proceeded to the Science Museum via the incredibly helpful subway system. The Science Museum achieved something that even my A Level Biology teachers have failed to do; make me happily learn about biology in my free time. We discussed how we felt like we'd missed out as children with ...
... subsided. We kept walking toward the Eye and found a little Mexican food truck. I got two pork tacos were were quite good and Carolyn got a burrito. We were able to find a bench by the Thames and sit on newspapers. Very surreal. We walked to the Waterlooo Station and caught the 7:37 train to Walton on Thames . Got off train about 8:00 and we waddled home as beat as little tired dogs. We were asleep by ...
As the New Year had finally begun, I was nearing the beginning of my new job at Disney. But I had 2 weeks off to enjoy before I did which was nice since I was tired after traveling for the past week or so and all the festivities in London. So, I basically spent those two weeks catching up on all of my tv shows and found some really great documentaries on Netflix about weather like the Japan Earthquake, Tornadoes etc, as well as the Costa Concordia ...
... zing out of the day somewhat but after a drink at the pub we all decided to take a wander about the place. We had a lovely meal in a Lebanese place and it was great to continue catching up with Cass and Luke and exchanging travel stories etc. We also made our way to Leiscester Square to pick up our London Passes and to enquire about tickets to a Show….. we had our hearts set on Mama Mia but had inadvertently picked a weekend for our few days in London, and Friday ...
... to describe the gold carriage and I can't quite decide how I feel about its extravagance.
Back to the hotel for a short rest, and then off to a pub called the Butcher's Hook and Cleaver. It is on the site of a shop that sold butcher's tools as part of a meat distributor that has been in operation for 400 years. They boast the fact that some notorious scoundrel was hung, drawn, and quartered on this site. I had a puff pastry with ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Thistle Euston London
Good location, quiet
Excellent value, quiet rooms, great location near Euston station where you can access all of London by bus and tube. Great place to stay if you are visiting someone studying at University of London. Room clean and comfortable.
LOVED Thistle Euston
My husband and I traveled from Texas, USA to London 2/28/04 through 3/6/04. We stayed at the Thistle Euston hotel. We were very impressed.
The room, though small, was immaculate. The free continental breakfast was very nice. The housekeeping staff and porters were extremely helpful. The hotel is very close the Euston Station for the Underground subway and there are bus stops also within a block or so. There is a nice park that backs up to the hotel and we ate lunch there which was very pleasant. I cannot say enough about how great it was. We paid a great rate and received much more than we expected. I highly recommend this hotel.
Management refused to accept American Airlines Vacations Confirmation of 2 for 1 dinner offer in hotel dining room. In doing so , inferred that confirmation had been altered and that confirmation was a meaningless document.
Stayed at the Thistle Euston last January, 2003
Stayed at the Thistle Euston last January, 2003, for two weeks while enjoying day tours, theatre, visiting the House of Commons, etc. Found our room attractive, clean, and very comfortable. The closeness to Euston Station is very convenient. My daughter and I will again stay at Thistle Euston this week. We're sure to find it as confortable as last year.
This was an outstanding hotel, in fact difficult to believe it could fall into the "budget" category. Spotlessly clean, with European charm and none of the chain hotel anonymity of, say, a Day's Inn. The most delicious & generous breakfast buffet I've ever seen and a wonderfully friendly staff. Also, a great location, two blocks from main Tube and train stations. Hope to stay here again!
Uninspiring but functional
Visited hotel on 10th January 2004 and stayed for one night. It is near to Euston Station and buses but quite a walk especially at night. The room was small but clean as was the bathroom. There was noise from the fans outside which was rather irritating. The breakfast (full English) was horrible. Do not pay for it but rather go out and buy breakfast at a cafe.
Wonderful hotel!!! A really affordable price for a single room, small but clean and nice. Helpful staff and really close to the Tube. If you want to spend your money having fun in London rather than in the hotel, yet you want a clean and decent place to sleep, this hotel is your option. I loved it.
We stayed at the Thistle Euston had a wonderful time. The staff were wonderful. We are planning another trip in March and are hoping that since we are returning guests that we will receive an upgrade. We highly recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to London.D BunnL CarterClayon NC
I've visited London several times and this is the one hotel I'll definitely return to. This 3-star is clean, comfortable and conveniently located within walking distance of both the Euston Station and Euston Square tubes. The single room I booked turned out to be a double with nice furnishings, upgraded linens and a fluffy duvet, very nice bath towels (even including, YES, a washcloth). The rooms must also be soundproofed as there was construction going on outside my window due to a water main break and I didn't hear any noise, nor could I hear the guests above or next-door. Breakfast was included in the price and consisted of cereals, rolls or croissants, meats and cheeses, yogurt and juice. The staff is very friendly and professional.
We spent six nights at the Thistle Euston and completely enjoyed our stay. The hotel is new and very nicely decorated. The rooms, though small, are comfortably appointed. The staff was always friendly and helpful. The hotel is close to Euston station for easy access to trains and the Underground. Room service breakfast was always delivered at the time we requested. We would certainly stay there again.
