Dear Mauricio, We appreciate you taking the time to share a review of your recent stay with us. Thank you for giving us 10 out of 10 "excellent" scoring. We are delighted to hear that you had a pleasant stay and found your room comfortable and clean. Many of London's West End Theatres are a short stroll away from the hotel; you can catch Motown The Musical at the Shaftesbury Theatre, a classical musical 42nd Street at the Royal Drury Lane, the iconic London Palladium is currently showing the new production of pantomime, Dick Whittington and The Olivier Award-winning La Soiree cabaret at the Aldwych Theatre. Perhaps the ultimate destination for a ballet or opera fan is to visit the stupendous Royal Opera House in Covent Garden, less than 10 minutes’ walk away from the hotel. We look forward to the pleasure of welcoming you back as a returning guest on your next visit to London. Kind regards, Tolga Ersen Operations Manager

I had a single room for 2 weeks. Nothing to complain about, sometimes a bit noisy because view on the street. Obviously the room was small but clean and well equiped and good location of the hotel. I would maybe express a reservation about - AC/heating system like in most of London hotel - food from the hotel a night which was ok/ average.

A hotel with an old facade but with modern and new looking rooms”
Situated not far from two lines, it is also convenient to access the British Museum by foot. In fact, it's a short 5 mins walk (if you are in a hurry to beat the queue) to the Museum and there are plenty to eat around the Museum area (not much good food along the main road though). We loved the location because there's also a bus that takes us to the King's Cross station and doing so, we spared ourselves taking the subway with our giant luggages en route to Paris. Walking distance to Primark, Convent city shopping area, etc. It ticked all of our location boxes. The hotel facade is a little old. But it looks quaint in the inside. The rooms are probably newly renovated and it is HUGE. We had no qualms spreading our 29 inch luggages in the room with enough room to walk around. Facilities are quite limited and the TV is tiny. But who goes to London staying in their rooms watching TV. What we also loved is their drying towel rack. Hot & crisp towels every morning!

Disappointing”
We have stayed in the Thistle Holborn several times, although not for about 3 years. The service at the bar was very poor - the bar was poorly stocked and staff were dismissive and inattentive. The hotel is looking a bit tired, we had lumpy pillows. We were generally disappointed and will not be staying here again.

Ideally located for theatre district and Oxford Street. Rooms are nice, just what you need. Beds were comfy and bedding soft and fresh. Breakfast wasn’t included, but quite reasonable at £12 extra for a help-yourself buffet with so many options. Nice little bar area too.

Stayed in Thistle Holborn for 5 days. What's good about it is there's a bus station right infront of the hotel, nearest tube station is 3 minutes walk. Pubs and restaurants are very close as well. Theatersare also walking distance if you love watching West End shows. However the room we had was quite small, Im not sure if that's a London standard hotel room but it felt small to me plus the floor in the room is squeaking which is bit of annoying. 3/5 would recommend.
