I booked this hotel with slight trepidation, if only because it was the only preferred hotel under my company's per night rate limit, and I had no experience with Thistle hotels prior. I would certainly stay here again after my stay. I arrived in the morning off the red-eye, and I was in my room by 11am without any added... More

We had a very enjoyable, three night stay at this hotel. It is well positioned, within easy walking distance of Covent Garden etc. We found the staff to be the most polite, helpful staff we have encountered, which says everything about the hotel. We would thoroughly recommend this hotel to any visitor.

My mother and I stayed over the last weekend in March. We had a wonderful stay as we were given a comp upgrade (including breakfast) and staff made Mother's Day very special for us. Proximity to the british museum and theatres is a bonus, however the friendly and professional staff made our stay very memorable.

We can highly recommend this Hotel. The location is ideal being close to the West End and Covent Garden. The staff are extremely polite helpful & friendly, the rooms are spotlessly clean and the food was excellent.

We stayed here in August 2013 and were very happy with the hotel and location. The hotel was immaculate and very modern. The British museum was right around the corner, and so were the bus stops for the Big Bus tours. Every staff member was extremely helpful with all of our questions and needs. The restaurants were very nice too.

The Kingsley is a nice hotel with typical London (small) rooms in the heart of the Bloomsbury area, on the edge of Covent Garden, and just a few blocks from the Holborn Tube station. The staff has been extremely pleasant, and very helpful. My room, while small, is neat and serviceable with a wardrobe and desk. There are no drawers... More

I spent over a week at this hotel last month and had a very nice stay. I would definitely stay here again! ROOM I was upgraded to a junior suite on the quiet side of the hotel and it was lovely. The room was facing the courtyard and though you sacrifice the view, Bloomsbury St. is every noisy, mainly because... More

We recently stayed at this hotel and booked five rooms in total. It was to celebrate my daughters 21st birthday. On check in my daughter was offered a complimentary upgrade to a junior suite and a birthday card and chocolates were waiting for her in the room. A lovely gesture! The receptionist also took the time to wish her a... More

Enjoyed a really relaxing theatre break in this friendly, clean, well-run hotel. From check-in to breakfast to check-out, all the staff were friendly and efficient. The breakfast room was particularly well-run. Good points: friendly staff, quiet room (a rare thing in London), comfy bed, great breakfast, well-placed for drury lane Bad points: one lift was out of order, a pain... More
