Great location and lovely hotel
No negatives to say about this hotel. The location was great, less than 10 mins walk to Covent Garden. The staff were great, room was lovely and the bed really comfy. I’d definitely go back to this hotel

Spoiled us!
We spent 6 nights at the Thistle Holborn and recommend it very highly. The service is really terrific, especially Gina at the front desk (Thank you!). Location near Russell Square was very convenient. The rooms were very quiet and very clean. The sheets and iinens are high quality. We had one night in a smaller room and 5 nights in a junior suite, which we can recommend very highly. I think it has spoiled us for future hotels!

Very good 8.0
Cosy, clean, comfortable with great location.
In general, our stay at the Thistle Holborn was great but one thing put us off at the beginning: our room wasn't ready when we arrived at 3:00 and we were asked to wait in the lounge and she would come get is in 15 minutes. After 30 minutes, we went back to the front desk to enquire and the person who had checked us in was gone and her replacement told us our room was ready. Makes me wonder how long they would have left us sitting there. Other than that, it was nice and we would probably stay there again. Clean room, very comfortable bed and bedding, great location, etc etc. Note: Incredible water pressure in sink - beware! In-room coffee is instant. We didn't try their breakfast.
