Centrally located hotel near the Holborn tube. I only stayed one night and the stay was pleasant.

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!

Fair 4.0
This hotel does not meet US hotel standards. There are many examples, however, for the sake of this review I will provide one example: There are no water bottles in the room. When you go to the front desk to get water, they tell you the water is filtered and should get water from your bathroom sink! Not!! So every night I would go downstairs to get water from the restaurant. One night a man by the name of "Steven" said he would personally bring up water to our room. I waited one hour and he never brought up the water. I then went downstairs to ask for water again. Steven was no where to be found so I went into the restaurant bar area looking for water bottles or faucet water. Steven shows up and tells me I am "sneeking" around his restaurant and becomes agitated, rude and nasty. This was witnessed by other hotel management and no one seemed to care about they way he was acting or talking. Stay away from this hotel that doesn't understand the primary basics of how to take care of their paying patrons.
