Just returned from a very pleasant 3 night stay at the Kingsley hotel by Thistle. I asked for a quiet room, and the check in clerk had already upgraded us which was a lovely surprise. 6th floor was great, was a little concerned as it was close to the lift and corridor doors, but there was no need to be. Very quiet.
The bed was very large and furnishings were great. Hotel has recently been refurbished. Reception and corridors look and smell very nice with scented candles in the evening, and I really liked the framed photos.
Staff were friendly and efficient. Breakfast was lovely and good value for £10 as long as you buy the breakfast voucher the day before. £16 On the day otherwise. Staff Again in the restraunt were professional and softly spoken which is nice if your a bit tender after a night out.
It's a great location for every entertainment in London. Only a short walk from Holborn and tottenham court road tube stations.
There is a sainsburys near Holborn station for any snacks and drinks you might want for the room. They do provide still and sparkling water in the room, and the tea and coffee making facilities were restocked every day. Room and bathroom immaculate. I have only stayed in one thistle hotel in York many years ago which was also a high standard and this one was lovely also. Highly recommend, it makes for a great base for exploring London and relaxing also.
