We will Never stary anywhere else in London!

Oh, we had had the most fantastic experience at the Kingsway Hall Hotel in London. Can't say enough good words about it. Incredible staff, location, lovely room with king size bed. Right near underground and a few blocks to Covent Garden Market place. A five-star for us - and we have been all over the world!!

Wonderful Location, Great Staff

The hotel is in the perfect location near Soho, Chinatown, the British Museum, good pubs and restaurants. It is also near the train station. What made it outstanding for us was the staff. My daughter needed a three pronged adaptor in order to use her computer and we had only a two pronged adaptor. The person on duty at the night reception desk found a three pronged adaptor for us and saved the day. The concierge was also helpful and the staff was genuinely friendly. The room was quiet, clean and comfortable. All in all, it was a happy experience for us. Oh yes, be sure to go to tea at the hotel. It was delightful.

You might not think of yourself as a museum person but you will be one after going to the British Museum. The actual rosetta stone is there and many ancient sculptures from Rome and Greece. Also, take the tour of London Tower and allot some time for the Westminster Abbey. Both are amazing. The shop at Buckingham Palace has some very nice reasonably priced products.

The Best!

We just absolutely loved our stay here. From the time we walked in, it was like "home". The location was at Covent Garden and near all theaters at West End, a 15 minute walk to the Thames. The staff was extremely helpful at all times. Room was great - and good appointments. Had King Size Bed. Very clean and excellent maid service. We will never stay at another hotel in London other than the Kingsway!

Seriously, no wifi?

Nicely located, we walked to the majority of destinations or made easy tube connections. The room was a little cold (December) but the staff happily provided extra blankets. The only wifi was in the lounge, where it was free with overpriced drinks or could be bought by the hour. In this day and age, I expect room wifi to be included at anything like the price we paid for rooms.

Relaxed feel from a central hotel

This is the second time I've stayed at the Kingsway Hall hotel & we will stay here again the next time we are in London. The twin rooms are an ok size with traditional furnishings, but clean, comfortable & adequate for a city break. The staff must be one of the hotels best assets with both the reception team & concierge exceeding expectations. The breakfast was plentiful & fresh. My only small niggle would be the service charge that is added to drinks from the lobby bar & the breakfast, but this time we went expecting this to be added to our bill!! A relaxing city centre hotel, that's in a superb location - I'd recommend others to give it a try!

Kingsway Hall - what a lovely hotel

This was a 2nd honeymoon for us and we were upgraded to a executive room. The only complaint was the buzzing from the air con every 5 mins but if you shut the bathroom door you couldnt hear it and also the view. we were put at the back of the hotel!! The staff were very friendly and helpful and I would stay there again and also recommend it to friends. It was a bit pricey for where it was but i guess thats London and I wish it put the parking charges on the website as we would have taken the train had we known it was £24 a day to park!!!!

take the train if possible as parking is £24 a night. Book a private cab, not a black cab, they are cheaper. Get a oyster card in advance as cheaper than a day card.

Ideal location in every way

My wife & I stayed for a long weekend early August '13 after flying in to Heathrow. We took the Piccadilly line direct from LHR to Holborn (55mins, negotiated 2 short flights of stairs to get out of the station & walked only 3 mins to the hotel. We had a room at the back & it was very quiet & clean, the front might be a bit noisy from nearby bars though. Reception, concierge & doorman were pleasant & helpful, check in/out was quick & painless. We didn't try the food but did use the gym, (small, only 4 machines); there's a steam room for each gender & a combined hot-tub. There's a great selection of bars, cafes & restaurants within 5 or 10 mins walk, lots of choice. We walked to most places we wanted to see, Covent Garden, Soho, Piccadilly Circus, even as far as Buckingham Palace & Big Ben, but that was a long day! My only gripe is the high cost of internet access, but we just walked 30 metres for a coffee & free wi-fi:)

Great place to stay in London

We stayed almost two weeks in this hotel. The location is perfect for walking to most destinations in central London. Holborn tube station (Picadilly and Central lines) is only ~ 2 minutes away. We had a VERY quiet and fairly large room in the back. The hotel staff was extremely helpful. The pleasant hotel restaurant serves satisfactory pre-theatre dinner and an afternoon tea, and there are many pubs and restaurants nearby. The only negative is no WiFi in the rooms. There is a cable connection in the rooms and WiFi in the lobby, both rather pricey. I used Starbucks a few steps from the hotel, at the corner of Kingsway and Great Queen Street.
