      I had a very comfortable stay.”

      You can reach the nearest station by a train from Heathrow Airport. It's about a 5-minute walk from the station. The staff were all very kind and explained everything to me carefully so that even as a beginner in English, I could understand. Breakfast was included, and I could choose to eat it in the venue or have it prepared in a paper bag to take away. The room was clean and had a sense of cleanliness, and the Wifi worked without any problems. The room I stayed in had a bathtub, and there was enough hot water, so it was comfortable. Every day, they provided mineral water and carbonated mineral water for each person. I had a very comfortable stay. Thank you very much.

      This is our second time staying at the Thistle, we were so impressed last year we came back! The staff are always polite and friendly and the rooms are a decent size and very clean. The breakfast is definitely one of the best hotel breakfasts!!! The hotel is centrally located between Holborn and Tottenham Court Rd Tubes and you can walk to Covent Garden etc. We are already planning our next trip!

      Great location, helpful staff, clean rooms, great breakfast

      It's my first stay at this hotel. I booked it after looking at the reviews. I must say I was not disappointed. The hotel is located near Holborn station, and it's a nice 10 minutes to center of London, so great great great location. The rooms are super nice, although small, but it's London. Last but not least, the staff were super helpful and accomodating. Great breakfast, although a little expensive even for London. To sum it up, I would recommend this hotel to my friends and family.

      Fabulous hotel in central London”

      Lovely decor, freindly staff, large, well equipped room and late check out!

      We enjoyed a Friday night stay at the Kingsley Hotel, which we booked because of it's great location. It was very near to Holborn and Tottenham Court Road tube stations, which made it the ideal base for our time in London. The hotel itself was very nice with charming decor in the communal areas. The rooms were also cleanly and simply furnished but very comfortable. The hotel was more than I had planned to pay but having read excellent reviews I decided to splash out and wasn't disappointed. It was a fantastic hotel but certainly wasn't snooty as the staff were incredibly friendly and helpful, which really made the stay.

      Great value ”

      My husband and I stayed here for a long weekend in London. It is a 5 minute walk from the Holborn Underground stop and a 2 minute walk to the British museum. It's 10 minuets from Chinatown and from Covent Garden. If you're doing things in any of those areas it's really a fabulous location. It's also a quick Underground jaunt to East London (think Spitalfields/Shoreditch). The absolute best parts of staying at this hotel are these: 1) it's a 2 minute walk from the Le Cordon Bleu cafe which provides amazing coffee and pastries (and eggs and other things). 2) We were able to check-in to our room before noon. When taking a red-eye from the US East Coast this is amazing.
