“Lovely hotel, no sleep.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014

We stayed at the hotel for one night, on July 4th. The hotel, staff and room were excellent, immaculately clean and very welcoming. Great to have tea and coffee making facilities, high quality toiletries and a very good breakfast. Our only complaint was the horrible noise outside late at night, which resulted in a very poor nights sleep (we were in a room overlooking great queen street.) the noise wasn't a background hum, which we could have accepted as the hotel is on a road full of pubs and restaurants, it was sheer mayhem, shouting, swearing, very unpleasant noise. I am surprised the police were not called...this definitely detracted from what us, essentially, a lovely hotel in a great location. I know the hotel can't be responsible for the behaviour of yobs, but the windows need to be double or triple glazed. Would we stay here again? Only in a room that does not overlook the street.

Room Tip: Request a room away from the street.

Dear lizziedav

Thank you for your fantastic review of The Kingsway Hall Hotel.

It gives me great pleasure to know that you were warmly welcomed to the hotel by Hotel staff. The Kingsway Hall is ideally located in the Covent Garden with all of the major London sites within walking distance of the hotel.

I am sorry that you were disturbed from street noise. The bedrooms at high levels and at the rear of the property are quiet and my team would have suggested a move if the opportunity had arisen during your stay.

I do hope that you would consider staying with us again and I would be delighted to assist you with a reservation.

Thank you for using Tripadvisor,

Kind regards,

This is my 2nd visit for afternoon tea to celebrate my husband's birthday. It was just as good as last time ( with a girlfriend). The staff are helpful and courteous and happy to leave out any sandwiches and replace with more of another. We were offered more cakes and scones but there are more than enough! We had the Wimbledon Afternoon Tea. Located right by Covent Garden. Very child friendly as well!

I had an opportunity to stay at this fine hotel for a business meeting. Friendly services, attention to detail and focus on you, the guest, is what this hotel exudes.

The rooms are comfortable and quiet, the bar, while small, is a great place to relax and perhaps catch some sports.

This is one I would definitely plan to stay with again.

This is a wonderful hotel with a excellent team. I had been there during 12 days with my 11 years old son and we had a great time, very good location, close to underground (subway), close to Covent Garden, theatres etc.
The staff is very friendly and nice.

Location is spit on for anything central or east in London and the travel links are all good for anywhere in London actually. The staff are very attentive and polite. Rooms are comfortable and have a nice luxury feel about them. We were offered an upgrade to an exec suite for a few pounds on check in which we took and it was well worth it. Breakfast is very good and very reasonably priced. Wifi and Internet was strong and fast. I wouldn't bother staying anywhere else if I needed to stay in that part of the city.
