Surprisingly (the entrance is a bit small) nice hotel. Clean and spacious. Slow check in I must say, but the rest was pleasant. Very good breakfast (friendly waitress Manuela), medium-speed (though they call it high-speed) yet free wifi (which should be mandatory in hotels). Great location close to British museum and restaurants/pubs.

A brilliantly central hotel, ideal for travellers & business people alike.
Good sized clean rooms, modern decor, comfortable bed.
Buffet breakfast was very good, and served on a weekend until 11am. Additional items available to order at an additional charge.
Nice bar area next to the reception, ideal for meeting friends.

This is my third visit to The Kingsley. The rooms are clean, beds very comfortable and staff that will go the extra mile to ensure you enjoy your stay. If fact the staff are a credit to the company. At breakfast you will be spoilt for choice, although they provide the usual buffet, it is served in smaller dishes so therefore fresh food it always being replenished. The location is very central making it convenient for shopping, theatre, tube stations etc.

We stayed here for 7 days and the hotel was comfortable, with great wifi and the location was perfect. The staff is super friendly and helpful especially Francesca the evening bartender. She was professional, welcoming and made our stay much more enjoyable.
