Thistle Holborn - The Kingsley
Perfect hotel for exploring London!
Can't speak positively enough. Turned up earlier then chekc in and fortunately our room was ready so they allowed us to check in. Staff were very welcoming and helpful. Room was perfect for our needs. Although at the front of the hotel, the road outside was realtively quiet for a london road! Good nights sleep and all round would recommend. It's a great location for exploring London from as close to Holborn tube station.

Perfect location for Shaftbury Avenue Theatre
Very pleasant stay at this hotel! Reception staff were very efficient and welcoming. Hotel room was lovely and location was perfect for our theatre visit. Breakfast was lovely, once again, staff were very attentive. Highly recommend this hotel for any visits to the theatre.

Food was not the best. Asked reception for a taxi, waited 20mins and went back in and was told they had cancelled. No one told us. We were late for our show. No care, compassion or sympathy. Didn't feel looked after.
