About Thistle Holborn, The Kingsley


Next door to the British Museum, this heritage property gives guests a taste of old England without sacrificing any modern comforts. Located in Bloomsbury by Tottenham Court Road tube station, the Thistle Holborn, The Kingsley is handy to the theaters of the West End and within walking distance of Covent Garden Market, Soho, and Chinatown. Rich in baroque detail, the hotel has undergone a major refurbishment to bring its grand past up-to-date with the requirements and comforts of the modern age. Broadband is available throughout the hotel, and business folk and bridal parties have a choice of handsome function halls at their disposal. Shoppers have their work cut out for them in this location with Oxford Street and Piccadilly Circus both within walking distance of the hotel.

bad check in experience, convenient location
Bad experience during checking in this hotel. Staff at the check in counters were unorganised and unhelpful. Comfortable and quiet rooms. Very convnient location, near to tube stations and the British Museum, walking distance to covent garden and there are restaurant choices nearby.

Good value for money
Situated close to several tube stations, nice neighborhoods. Friendly and helpful staff. Bed was not too comfortable, unfortunately. Big rooms compared to other hotels in London.
