The room was very clean and very pleasant but overlooked an alleyway facing a pub and not far from the main street. The noise was constant and throughout the night we were woken by the noise of the traffic from the street

the hotel was in an excellent location. The staff and their attention to detail was very good. Breakfast was also good. Asked for a quiet room with a view and we were on the sixth floor. Would return again.

Left dressing gown in room after checking out and hotel returned the gown by post, which was... More

Just finished a 6-night stay in early Oct with a young toddler. The room could fit a playpen but there was limited space left after that. Housekeeping is average. Found tea-stains on a cup once, and sheets were not changed throughout the stay until we requested for it. No mid day turn down. The bathroom was adequate in size, and... More

A wonderful 2 nights stay. Clean room, good breakfast and friendly staff from beginning to end. Location great for theatres (walked to and from Queens Shaftsbury easily) and Holborn gives quick access to Oxford St. Will definitely use again.

My wife and I found The Kingsley to be a fantastic find for our 4-day visit to London. Location is absolutely wonderful. Located in the Bloomsbury neighborhood, it's a 5 minute walk to the British Museum or the Holborn tube station and an easy, interesting and safe walk to Covent Garden (10-15 minutes). The hotel is updated, clean and everything... More

Great location close to Holborn tube station and bus to Victoria station straight across the road. Room size was ok for the 2 of us. No view from the window, bed was clean and comfortable. Room needed a good vacuum and dusting. The hairdryer over heated within seconds of use. The tv remote could n't be used to turn on... More

My birthday treat with a show in the evening. I've stayed in many Thistle hotels on visits to London but this is the best by miles. Good location for theatres and sights. My wife is not able to walk too far but this hotel is very close to bus stops and underground. All staff are very friendly with lots of... More

We enjoyed breakfast which was a buffet but the food was fresh and we were looked after very well by the breakfast staff. check out quick and efficient and... More
