The Tower Hotel London Next To Tower Bridge

The Tower Hotel Next To Tower Bridge

GLH hotels in London are among the most numerous of the 4 star chain hotels in London.

Many years ago now, Thistle hotels were a chain with not the greatest reputation, the hotels were perhaps tired in need of investment. The company was taken over and the new owners have invested heavily in bringing the hotels up to a high standard.


Along the way the Thistle hotels were broken up into various hotel brands, the original Thistle brand being retained for the cheaper hotels whilst the brands Every, Amba & Guoman were introduced for the more upscale properties.


All of the brands are full service 4 and 5 star luxury hotels, many of the hotels have A1 locations in the very heart of London.


The Thistle branded hotels in London are arguably in the same market place as somebody like Holiday Inn.


The Guoman hotels are in iconic buildings in prime locations offering the traditional luxury hotel product.


The Amba brand is again an attempt to offer a more contemporary product to the discerning traveller.


Every Hotels are a modern take on customer needs at full service hotels with less emphasis on some of the frills like sewing kits and more emphasis on things like the reliability and speed of the internet or quality of the beds.


Like most luxury 4 star hotels in London room rates tend to be lower at the weekends and holiday periods. This is especially true of hotels like the Thistle City Barbican in the heart of the City of London business area.


Many of the Thistle / Guoman hotels are in the heart of the West End entertainment district where demand for weekend breaks etc means this general rule doesn't apply always.


The Thistle Hyde Park and Thistle Kensington Gardens within a few hundred yards of each on the northern border of Hyde Park are in the Bayswater hotel district, a leisure orientated district where room rates mid-week are often cheaper than at the weekend.
