    Historical Traveler Reviews Grange Holborn Hotel London

    Fantastic

    from

    What a fantastic hotel and so close to the west end. I will never stay anywhere else in London. At the weekends they do a great rate of 85.00 GBP a night B&B.

    The hotel was very clean and smart, nothing was shabby or dirty unlike some other hotels I have stayed in. Our room was not huge but definitly big enough for two people to co-exist comfortably. The bed was not very comfy but for me it was not a problem as everything else was so good. The bathroom was small but very clean and decorated with black marble. The bed room had everything you could possibly need, ironing board & iron, safe, hairdryer, coffee bits, mini bar, various magazines, loads and I mean loads of selves and cupboards, CD player, tv and not least of all air conditioning. I find london to be so hot I could not survive without air conditioning, and it wasn't too noisy either.

    Some guests have complained about the proximity to busy traffic lights. This was not a problem for us, close the window, put on the air con and off you drift.

    The breakfast was brilliant, with loads of choice, needless to say I got my monies worth, cereals, pastries, both full continental and english breakfast, and at least seven different fruit juices to choose from.

    The hotel was about a five minute walk from Covent garden, which is where we like to be and I will definitly be returning.

    Very good London hotel

    from

    Was very happy with my stay at the Grange Holborn. Rooms are above average size for London, terrific location. Only negative is the bland breakfast.

    Quite nice

    from

    Stayed here in the middle of March after leaving a nearby 3-star hotel that was a disappointment. Was surpised that the Holborn (a 5-star) was only a few pounds more (it has great weekend rates of about 85 GBP). Though I think it is more like a high 4-star hotel than a 5-star, it was very nice. The room was nice size, the bathroom spotless and modern, and the staff was extremely courteous and helpful. I will stay here from now when in London for the weekend.

    Staff are a bit iffy.

    from

    The Grange Holborn was a gorgeous hotel, very well placed for walking into the west end, etc. There was a bit of traffic noise, but nothing that would put me off staying here again. I loved the pool and the steam room/sauna. A great bonus. The staff were a bit dopey though. It would be nice in London to be served by someone who can actually speak fluently in English!

    Traffic noise

    from

    We stayed at Grange Holborn 2 nights in December 2003. The location for the tourist is great. Within walking distance to lots of attractions.

    The location for the hotel is awful. The hotel is located next to the crossing of heavy traffic roads. There are traffic noise and sirens all night. It is amasing that a hotel built 3 years ago has so bad insulation against external noise. The rooms against the streets will give you a bad sleep, unless you use ear plugs. The heater and airconditioner was surprisingly noisy. Must be switched off during sleep. There is a modern mini bar in the room. When you move some of the spirit and beer cans to store your water and juice supply, the computer resitrate all moved items on your bill! What a fun check out, with all the editing. What a useless refridgerator. Other hotels lests you use this for your own storage. Apart form these serious comments the rooms are large, the view can be great, there is a gym and the breakfast is good. The staff is very friendly.

    Good hotel - very expensive if you pay full rate

    from

    I stayed in this hotel for several weeks for business. It's always clean, the rooms are pleasant and fairly spacious, the staff seem friendly, and the lobby bar is quite pleasant. On the downside, it's totally anonymous and the full rates are extortionate.

    Great deal at the weekend rate

    from

    I've stayed in this hotel three times now. It is a very good deal at the weekend rate (Fri, Sat, and Sun nights). The cost during the week is so much higher, and you could do much better. Good things: rooms are beautiful and spacious, good location, excellent breakfast, nice sports club downstairs. Weaknesses: clueless service (don't speak english, don't understand their jobs well), sort of noisy location (always lots of sirens - near a hospital?). I would go back if I had a room on the upper floors.

    Needs improvement

    from

    The location of the holborm was terrific- close to the tube & within walking distance of the British Museum and Theatre District.

    Complaints-The spa/ workout room/ pool were not completed as the online ad for the hotel had featured. They dutifully began construction EARLY every morning!On the plus side- Rooms were very comfortable,bathrooms were superior. The food was bland and the lobby was inferior

    Keep going back...

    from

    We visit London infrequently and would like to try different hotels, but we usually end up booking back at the Grange Holborn because it's reasonable (if booked through a discount agency, obviously) and the staff are always great. Also, the facilities are clean and in good condition, the breakfast is good, the gym and pool are small but perfectly fine for hotel stays.It is also really well positioned for the things we usually want to do in London, Tottenham Court Road, Covent Garden, British Museum etc. We stayed there last month and now it looks like we'll need to visit again at the end of this month, so I suspect we'll be going back again!

    Grange Holborn is Great!

    from

    We stayed here three times when we were living in rural England last year, and we really loved it. It is a very new hotel, in a central location, with great access to buses and tubes, halfway between the British Museum and Covent Garden. The rooms are spotless with lovely bathrooms, the service is wonderful (they remembered us after the first visit), and they have the best pool and fitness room I've seen in London. You need them to work off the calories from the huge breakfast buffet. All at prices not much different from other places in this neighborhood where there were no amenities and Iyou have to share a bath. Check directly with the hotel for weekend specials.

    ... out this hotel as a possibility from 2007. We are very close to Kings’ Cross/St. Pancras Train Stations, the sites from which Harry Potter departed for Hogwarts. We had a quick lunch (this time tacos and burritos—good English fare) at the station and then took a long needed afternoon nap.
    After some rest, we regrouped and headed to Parliament. It was a very crowded area, so we were glad to cross to the other side ...

It was great to be celebrating with my parents in the childhood home where I spent at least 18 birthdays, and splitting the birthday glory with my dad.

I don't normally care about architecture but this place was amazing. It's such a massive old building and I've attached some pictures of it. I think one reason I love london as a city is that even though it's to absolutely huge and busy and packed it has ...
