“Good location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

We stayed for two nights to celebrate my wife's birthday at the end of July 2014. I work in Central London so I am no stranger. I chose the Kingsway Hall Hotel for three reasons. 1. Location. It's just outside the main hustle and bustle of the west end but close enough to easily get to most of London's theatres and attractions. 2. Modern. Nice looking hotel with good sized clean rooms. 3. Price. Reasonably priced with a very good breakfast selection. The staff were very good and always available. The only criticisms I have were the rooms were a little old fashioned with very little natural light and I was unable to open the window. The bathroom was well appointed but the water pressure was almost non existent. 15 minuets to run a bath and a dribble of a shower. I did complain at the end of my stay and they subsequent offered me an upgrade on my next visit to the hotel.
On the whole, the experience was good and I would recommend this hotel.

Dear Towit2woo,

Thank you for taking the time to post a review of Kingsway Hall hotel and I have noted all your comments which will be distributed and acted upon by my management team.

I was delighted to learn that most of your expectations were met and shall personally share your kind comments with all those concerned.

I am sorry that you were not able to enjoy our bath/ shower facilities and this is most regrettable news for me. I have commenced an investigation with the maintenance and housekeeping teams to see how we can make improvements in the future.

I hope you enjoyed your special occasion I look forward to you and your wife staying with us again!

Best wishes,

This hotel is perfectly situated near the Holborn Tube station - within walking distance of Covent Garden.
The staff is friendly - and very efficient. The breakfast is perfect, the rooms are spacious, but a bit dated - could do with an update from the 90s. Bathrooms are very nice. Everything is clean and spotless. Would have been even better with free WiFi.
We were travelling with grown up kids. sightseeing, shopping and dining, so not in the hotel much, but it were a perfect place to relax between outings. We will probably stay here again.

The location of the hotel is very good, in Covent Garden, and a short walk from Holborn Undergroundstation.
Stayed at Kingsway Hall for the first time, but not last, with two of my daughters. Went to London for shopping, musical and sightseeing, and we had a booked a Standard Twin room. The room was spacious, clean and comfy, and the bathroom was large and clean! The hotel staff was attentive and eager to make our stay, as good as possible. We had breakfast in the Harlequin restaurant, and it was delicious with a very good selection of food and drink.
Our last night we were tired from walking and ordered room service. Again: service excellent and food delicious!! Will definitely stay at Kingsway Hall again!

Visited as a group for afternoon tea, very good service all round. Nice selection of teas and all the food was delightful esp. the scones. Would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel, and the restaurant is lovely.

We booked this hotel for a one night stay over. After doing some research on lots of hotels within this area we decided on the Kingsway Hall. We wasn't disappointed....we were greeted by a bell boy on arrival before we even made it to the front door entrance !

The reception is modern and classy and we decided to go for an upgraded room on arrival. Our room was lovely....very smart and cosy at the same time. The large king size bed was so comfy which is important to myself as I struggle back problems. The mattress was nice and firm and the sheets were lush !

The shower was so nice, so much so that I didn't want to get out of it to be honest....everything we required was supplied in our room with all the amenities and extras you could wish for was at hand.
We enjoyed a great night at the theatre followed by a nice meal in Chinatown before returning to our room.

We just chilled in the room the next day until check out time. The staff were just so ultra helpful and friendly when checking out and offered to hold our bags for the day if we required.
The only problem was leaving the place as one night just didn't seem enough at this hotel.

All in all a fantastic well located gem of a hotel and one that we would love to return to in the future. Next time we would like to try out the sauna and steam room and to experience the dining and bar areas. Problem was that our room was so comfortable that we didn't want to leave it.
I am quite a fussy person but i couldn't fault this hotel other than it being a bit pricey but hey that's London for you !

Thank you for our amazing stay in your top notch hotel...see you again !

Room Tip: We had a room at the front of the hotel and was slightly noisey late at night as opposite a busy bar...

We only stayed here one night on a weekend trip to London. The room was wonderful and very comfy and the service was fantastic. And we thoroughly enjoyed breakfast!. It was in a perfect location. On our next visit to London we will be sure to book again, and hopefully for a little bit longer.

Becoming a regular here ! MIxed holiday and business this time, booked a business meeting room and all went smoothly, recd a room upgrade to a suite......gorgeous ! We were at the front of the hotel and have to say weve never noticed noise as an issue, maybe thats because the bed is soooo comfy we sleep right through. We had a night out at the Savoy grill for a meal and i have to say in all honesty, the Kingsway food is far better quality. our review of the Savoy is not good....for the 2nd time ! Every time we eat at the Kingsway we leave the table very pleased. we stayed for christmas last year, christmas dinner was amazing and we are coming back again this year for christmas. Kingsway is without a doubt our London base home from home.

Room Tip: weve liked all the room s so far
