Stay away from the corner rooms!
Loved this hotel the first time I stayed in it three weeks ago.
However, my recent stay was a bit disappointing. The whirlpool was out of service and the pay per view movie cut off five minutes before the end. The worst part was that on both mornings, around 9:00 am, the water pressure and the hot water completely disappeared. The explanation I was given is that there is high water usage at that time and the rooms at the end of the corridors are most affected. (We were in 527) So there I stood with a head full of shampoo and no hot water or water pressure. Not the best start to the day. Overall the location is good, the place is very clean and the staff is nice. The moral of the story is to ask for a room in the middle of the corridor!
Good Location, Clean Rooms for Money
The Kingway Hall Hotel in London was very close to the Holborn Tube station which made it very easy to get around for both sight-seeing and airport travel (Gatwick). We were able to walk to all the major attractions and tourist locations and were nearby Covent Garden Market and restaurants as well. The rate was one of the best I found for a four-star hotel in Covent Garden area and the rooms were clean and of decent size. The one thing that I really liked about this hotel is that they have non-smoking floors, which is rare to find in London. Overall, a nice location and hotel for the money.
I stayed at Kingsway in August, and was pleasantly suprised because we paid a such a good rate for the room. The lobby is pretty, with a nice bar to meet friends for a drink, the staff is friendly and helpful, and the room (albeit small) was clean and nice.I would definitely stay here again.
It would've been nice if the hotel had a fitness center, but all in all a terrific value and pleasant experience.
Loved Kingsway Hall
I booked the hotel as part of a package deal at Exedia but Kingsway Hall had come recommended by a trusted co-worked so I was optimistic going in. And the hotel exceded my expectations. It was clean, well-run and centrally located, with a lovely restaurant in the lobby and well-decorated rooms. Each room has it's own air conditioning controls, but most of the time we kept our window open to enjoy the unseasonably cool weather during our September visit.
Great value and location for theatre
Wanting to just do theatre on this trip to London, we found the Kingsway Hall Hotel on Queen St. to be an excellent value and a great location. It was on a quiet street just off between Drury Lane and High Holcolm. We could walk to most theatres and were very close to Covent Garden. Our room was quite large by London standards, recently redecorated and the bathroom was very large. Besides the usual trouser press there was an ironing board, tea and coffee making facilities and 2 hairdryers - one in the bathroom and one in the desk drawer in bedroom. Would definitely recommend it to anyone wanting to be near the theatre district.
Great stay at the Kingsway Hall
April 2003As regular visitors to London, my husband and I stayed at the Kingsway Hall Hotel and absolutely loved it! On arriving at the hotel we were greeted by friendly reception staff and although a few hours early for check- in we were given a room straight away. The room was quite spacious as was the bathroom. Room was spotlessly clean and well appointed with room safe, mini bar and iron. The breakfast was delicious and served in a relaxed environment, although waiting service could be better. Excellent location for Covent Garden etc. We would definitely have no hesitation in returning to the Kingsway Hall.
Nicest hotel I've stayed at in London so far
Kingsway Hall is well above average for London, particularly for the price. Great location - about 1.5 blocks from Holborn station and about 6 blocks to Convent Garden. Hotel is newly renovated, with up-to-date rooms and large baths. Hint - look in the desk drawer for a 'normal' hair dryer instead of using the awful one hanging in the bathroom. I appreciated the heated towel bar and iron (not just a trouser press, as with most hotels in London). Room size is large for London (similar to newer Marriotts and Hyatts in the USA). My room overlooked a back street, so I never heard the street traffic. Staff is very helpful and wants to please. I arrived early morning and my room was not yet ready. They offered the use of the gym locker room to shower & refresh. I would usually say 'no way' but after taking a look at the absolutely pristine locker room, I took them up on their offer.My only complaint is the food. I had room service and was disappointed - ended up eating almost none of it. There are so many nice restaurants in the immediate area, just head out and enjoy the food elsewhere!I will definitely stay there again!
Great Location, Great Hotel
We spent a long weekend here, and loved it. The rooms were larger than average for London. The beds were firm and comfortable, very nice bathrooms and room furnishings. Great staff, extremely helpful Concierge. Great location close to Covent Garden. Would definitely stay again.
An excellent London Hotel
My girlfriend and I satyed here soon after it reopened. Compared to other London Hotels we have stayed it it was a very pleasnat suprise. The staff went out of their way to help, the rooms were spotlessly clean and the food was excellent too.
In other London hoels I have stayed in the staff treat guests as an inconvenience, this could not be further from the truth at the Kingsway Hall.
The lcation is also excellent, onlt a few minutes walk from covent garden.
I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone.
PS If arriving by Tube I recomment getting off at Holborn and not Covent Garden, its closer!
Excellent Choice of Hotel
This is an excellent privatley run hotel and is manned by staff who genuinely care for the guests. Ideally situated for Covent Garden and theatre land, you will not be disappointed. Rooms were larger than average, well appointed and spotlessly clean. Food excellent, breakfast self service - Brilliant try this hidden gem!
