Fabulous hotel. Convenient location 2 minutes walk from Holborn underground. Staff super efficient & friendly, arrived prior to check in time, wasn't a problem the room was available. Had dinner in the a rocket restaurant, good food and great value, would recommend it.
We've stayed at the Kingsway Hall Hotel several times and have always found it to be a wonderful base for a stay in London. It is near Covent Garden, theatres and many excellent restaurants, and Holborn tube station is a short walk away. The hotel staff is very warm and friendly and the rooms are comfortable. The breakfast buffet features a variety of typical English breakfast-type foods and the Harlequin Restaurant is very good and offers nice discounts to hotel guests. This time, due to our Expedia status, we received complementary wifi and were upgraded to a very large room, which gave us the opportunity to relax in pleasant surroundings. We always try to stay at the Kingsway Hall hotel whenever we go to London and heartily recommend it to all visitors.
As you turn through the entrance gates from Holburn Road you get your first glimpse of the hotel's facade before you are in the courtyard of a small oasis in the middle of bustling London. A chipper young chap dressed in New England/Ralph Lauren attire greets you warmly and shows you to the reception desk where the staff are dressed more formally but are no less friendly. Your reservation is dealt with efficiently and you are directed to your room with its fresh decor. The bed is especially comfortable.
Breakfast in the Holburn Grill the following morning is complimentary thanks to Expedia Elite. It is reminiscent of a Boston diner and the food is a perfect start to the day. Unlike many top class hotels the breakfast is busy with hotel guests and locals, a testament to the quality.
The hotel bar, Scarfe's, was similar. Not the usual tumbleweed hotel bar but a buzzing night spot full of locals with a live Jazz band each evening of our stay.
When our stay was over we stood in the courtyard and asked for a taxi to the train station but on overhearing our request the hotel driver told us to hop in to the hotel's Jag and he drove us to the station.
The hotel sent us a customer satisfaction survey after our stay asking us, amongst other things, to recommend a member of staff. They were all excellent we told them.
Faultless? Try it and see for yourself.
We booked our stay at the last minute - wanted somewhere cheap and convenient for Covent Garden and the Travelodge was fully booked. So pleased we ended up with this instead! Similar price to the Travelodge but much higher standard - all smart, modern and comfortable and right next to Holborn tube station so very convenient spot. The room was a good sized double, good bathroom (with bath, not just shower) and there was a little kitchenette. Check in and check out were efficient and staff were friendly.
