    About

    Named after renowned British novelist Charles Kingsley, the Thistle Holborn, The Kingsley makes an ideal base for immersing oneself in London's rich arts and culture. The hotel is the result of a £10m renovation that transformed an aging Edwardian building into an elegant, four-star property featuring 129 guest rooms and suites, meeting facilities, the Kingsley Two Brasserie, and a stylish bar.

    A Literary London Experience

    The rooms feature a modern, minimalist style with all the creature comforts - complimentary WiFi included. As a relatively small hotel, the Thistle Holborn, The Kingsley is proud to be able to offer its guests personalized service, including 24-hour room service for all guests. In honor of its namesake, the hotel offers a Residents Library featuring books by Charles Kingsley and other members of the "Bloomsbury Group" of writers, which can be delivered to your room. If you plan to curl up with a good book, special reading pillows are available on request.

    Bloomsbury Beauty

    The Thistle Holborn, The Kingsley, is located in the Bloomsbury area of central London. The neighborhood was developed in the 17th century and still retains its classical atmosphere with plentiful gardens, colleges, and museums. The British Museum, Covent Garden, Picadilly Circus, SOHO, Theatreland, and Bond Street are within a 15-minute walk of the hotel and, for travel further afield, the Holborn tube station is just 10 minutes away on foot.
