We were sad to say good-bye to Edinburgh but the bus doesn't wait! We drove through some picturesque countryside known as the "Borderlands" because, what else, it's along the Scottish/English Border. There was a piper in full regalia at the border, playing that popular bagpipe tune..."Rock around the Clock". Along the way we saw the ruins of …
I came across this website and wanted to use it to document our honeymoon! We arrived in London on November 15, 2010 - here are some pics of our hotel and first night in London.
The last 2 days have ben travelling and wandering. On Saturday we spent the morning getting repacked and checking out. After lunch we drove to Salem. This is a 45 minute drive from Boston and having taught The Crucible over the last few years I was keen to see the town. This is a great place although they play the Witch connection for all they can …

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.
