This is a great hotel. Lovely interior reception & the rooms didn't let it done either. We had a junior suite and were surprised how spacious, clean well presented it was. The living area off the main bedroom had a sofa bed, dining table and big screen tv, even though we didn't really use it, it was nice to have so much space. The staff were very helpful whenever we needed anything in the room and couldn't do enough. The location of this hotel is perfect. If you do a right out of the hotel and walk straight for 5 mins you are on Oxford Street, Covent garden was literally a 5 minute walk too just a couple of turns from that. There are also shops, bars and restaurants on the same street of the hotel if you don't want the hustle and bustle of the main areas. This has to be the first time visiting London & never using the tube, it really wasn't necessary being so close to the shops and restaurants. We caught a taxi from Euston station to the hotel which was literally a 5 minute journey and cost just £6.00 I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Junior suite, very spacious!

I have stayed in many hotels and often find it difficult with the review because they are ok but not brilliant and I never want to offend. But the team at Thistle Holburn are exceptional. From the minute I walked in until I left I felt like everyone cared. The man at reception was kind, the lady at the bar was friendly and the room was perfect. Yes I know that might sound unusual for a big hotel but you have to give credit where it is deserved. And one last thing ... the hotel it is well located for the nice restaurants and shops at Covent Garden. Ideal.

Room Tip: I get the impression that all the rooms are ok

We stayed overnight and enjoyed excellent service in all areas of the hotel. Staff were friendly and made time to talk to us. Food was good and nicely presented. The room was modern, clean and had sufficient space for our needs and the bed was very comfortable. We Will not hesitate to visit again.

Great location 5 - 10 mins from Holborn tube station and within walking distance of Covent Garden. Staff extremely courteous & helpful. Lovely room & bathroom. My daughter & I shared a twin room which was a good size. Overall a great trip!

Stayed at the hotel for 5 days. The room though a lil small (we had a double twin bed room) was plenty and typical of hotels in London. Very clean and good bath tub. Location is amazing...the British museum is right in back of the hotel on the next block. There are two bus stops right in front of the hotel. Soho is a few minute walk away. Really the best location! Breakfast which can be purchased for 10 pounds when you check in is a MUST. Overall I couldn't be happier with my stay. Highly recommend it.
