More about Thistle Holborn

More about Thistle Holborn

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 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.

Great location!”

Location was best about this hotel. Everything close by, the staff were also friendly and helpful. Rooms were spacious and comfortable, bathroom was a good size.
Facilities i.e coffee&#47;milk&#47;teas were lacking - only a couple of each as if it hadn’t been restocked.
