Best location for theatre break in London”

Just back from a great stay at the Kingsway Hall Hotel. It is only 5 minutes from Holborn underground and about 8 minutes from Covent Garden underground. Lovely friendly staff, clean and modern hotel, easy walk to Covent Garden. This is the best hotel we have stayed in for a theatre break and not just for the location, although the fact that it is close to Euston Station (£10 taxi fare) and the undergrounds as well as the theatre district makes it pretty much perfect. We were there to celebrate our daughter's 21st and when I mentioned this to the staff in conversation there was a lovely little plate of birthday cakes in her bedroom when we returned later on. We had 2 upgraded rooms and they were well worth it. Lovely large rooms on the 6th floor looking out onto the front of the hotel. Really comfortable bed and good air con meant we slept well even during the recent heatwave. The bathroom was lovely, modern and clean with a heated towel rail so the towels were always warm, Molton Brown toiletries and a hairdryer in the bathroom. I took my own hairdryer and glad I did as the hotel ones are never quite powerful enough but fine if you have short hair. All in all we loved our stay- so much so that without hesitation we will return to this hotel for our next stay in London. Can't be beaten for location no matter where in London we will be visiting and the staff were so friendly. Fantastic hotel!

great location and staff”

Stayed for nearly a week and love the location close to everything including the underground and several local grocery stores. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Our room was average size, very clean in the room and bathroom, small, wifi is free and good signal on 4th floor. We got a room was very quite from the street noise. Several restaurants and coffee shops locate within walking distant. Covent Garden market is about 7 minutes walk at leisure pace and Holbron underground about 5 min. Overall we had a great experience staying at the Kingsway Hall Hotel.

The staff make it an excellent choice.”

The hotel is lovely, even though the rooms were not particularly big, they were adequate for a long weekend in London. There were big wardrobes with an iron & board, and an in room safe and mini bar. Like most London hotels, the prices for drinks and snacks was ridiculous, but as you have bars and restaurants on the doorstep, there's rarely a need to spend the sky high prices here. The staff made the stay extra special. Every one that I spoke to, for whatever reason, was helpful, professional but friendly. I always felt at ease, which is not always the case with 'posh' hotels. The room and bathroom were always cleaned very well. The bed was a little firm for my liking, but others in my party were very comfortable. I would have liked feather pillows, but again, that's just a personal preference. I have marked the 'facilities' down due to the price of the drinks in the bar, and the disappointing amount of choices on the set menu in the restaurant. There was nothing on the menu that appealed to everyone in my party, so I can't comment on the quality of the food, as we didn't eat there. Strada, an Italian restaurant across the road was lovely. Ask for a higher floor to avoid the noise of London and the pubs in the street. We were on the 7th floor, and not disturbed at all by anything. There is in-room air conditioning, so no need to keep the windows open all night for air. I'd definitely stay here again. It's within easy walking distance to Covent Garden and even Piccadilly Circus and Soho. We also walked to different theatres every night, and there are loads in the vicinity.

Great location”

The location cannot be beat. Within walking distance of Covent Garden, West End theatre, National theatre, Somerset House and National Galleries, and great shopping. Staff is outstanding. Staff members went out of their way to assist me. My room was a little small, furniture is getting a little old, but the room was clean and well-laid out and more than adequate for my needs. No shower stalls, but I understand the hotel is planning major renovations soon, and shower stalls will be included. I've stayed at Kingsway twice, and most likely will stay there again on my next trip to London.

Ideal location, helpful and very comfortable hotel

A two night stay at Kingsway Hall was ideal for our needs, very comfortable rooms and helpful staff. The location is excellent, easy walking distance to Convent Garden, Trafalgar and the South Bank aren't much further, plus tubes are close by. We never sampled the hotel's eating and drinking options as the place is surrounded by good restaurants and bars. The rate is quite expensive but reasonable value compared with other London hotels and the location is hard to fault. Only downsides are the lack of free internet and minimal free TV channels, but this is fairly standard in UK accommodations, and anyway who goes to London to watch TV?

A good standard of room for central London at the price offered by Agoda. Large and modern frontage of hotel was unexpected in the location and impressed our companions. Easy to get to by tube, taxi or on foot. We walked from Euston to the hotel and also back from china town in the evening. Recommended.

The appearance and first impressions are important the reception and presentation is always second to none, the cleanliness of the rooms are exceptional as

Our stay was as pleasant as our first visit six years ago and I would recommend the Kingsway to anyone and I challenge anyone who would think anything different; its well placed for theatre land along with ease of access to the West End and tourist attractions.

We found this to be a very good hotel with an excellent location. Easy to walk down to Covent Garden, Soho and everything my wife loves about London. My wife goes to London about every year and likes to stay at new hotels, but she is really positive about returning here in the future. The only minor thing was that the beds are not that long, and neither are we!

Amazing hotel with the most efficient staff”

location, cleanliness, toiletries

Fantastic location that is a mere 5 minute walk away from Covent Garden/British Museum/Waitrose/M&S, 10 minutes walk from Chinatown, 20 minutes walk from Regent Street. Even if you wish to take the tube, it is just a stone's throw away from Holborn Station! Delicious scones for the high tea (do not be shy to ask for more because you will regret it), a very generous range of Molton Brown toiletries. The housekeeping was impeccable, the concierge were adequately helpful, the restaurant's staff were great at what they do, and of course, Jamie and the doormen were always a delight to meet at all times of the day! The hotel is highly accessible to the various takeaway eateries, and you never have to worry about your safety when you walk back to the hotel at night. Swing by Penhaligon's if you feel like splurging on some nice parfums, or even have some fish and chips from Rock and Sole. I will certainly be returning to this hotel but with a prepaid data card because for a hotel of this price, you would expect some complimentary in-room wifi at the very least.
