If you want a 5-star experience, you're not going to find it here - but you're not going to pay for it either. What you will get is a cozy B&B, with wi-fi, clean facilities and a hearty breakfast in the heart of London. Right around the corner from the British Museum, and with 2 tube stations and several major... More

This hotel is a wonderful place to stay for families, university groups, or a couple. We had 2 adults and 7 university students and stayed for 6 nights in May 2015. The location cannot be beat since it is close to several Tube stops: Goodge St, Euston Sq, Warren St, Russell Sq, and Tottenham Court Rd. These stops are on... More

We were traveling on a budget and learned about this hotel from Lonely Planet. It was perfect for us. The hotel is basic, but completely clean and comfortable. The staff was great, welcoming, helpful. Great location. We loved the morning breakfast with terrific service. I wouldn't hesitate to stay again.

A typical B&B, very well located. Near to a tube station and walking distance to the British Museum. The room was tiny but clean, with a comfortable bed and a good shower. If you are in London visiting, your time in the hotel will be limited. Breakfast was English style. For me, it would be nice if they have more... More

This is hotel in a line of row houses across from the University College of London. It appeared ALL of the row houses along Gower Street are now hotels. This one had en-suite bathrooms available. My biggest complain was they provided the smallest bit of soap, made by the Chinese. I didn't expect a washcloth at this price, but I... More

Thank you for your review. It is very kind of you to take the time to write one.

The rooms are nice and clean if kind of cramped. The location is excellent- 5-10 minute walk to Brit Museum and three blocks to Underground. Biggest drawback was the breakfasts were pretty drab and repetitive - hope you like eggs and Canadian bacon. Overall a good hotel

Situated just a short walk from Euston and Goodge Street, this B&B was exactly what me and my friends needed. As a group of 3 students we found the hotel fairly priced. We were pleased to find 3 single beds in our room as requested as others accommodation in London would have meant 2 of us sharing a bed. It... More

Earlier in the month of March, 2015, I had the pleasant opportunity to stay at the Ridgemount Hotel in London’s Bloomsbury neighborhood. My seven day stay there turned out to be perfect. The Ridgemount is centrally located. Most major attractions are literally within 15-20 minutes, be it by foot, tube, bus, or taxi. The Goodge Street tube station is a... More

Staying in Bloomsbury

Neighborhood Profile
Bloomsbury
Snuggly nestled within Central London is academic and leafy Bloomsbury, an area that boasts walking distance access to many of London's most popular attractions. It is also home to some of Britain's most celebrated museums, including the must-see British Museum. Despite an understandable popularity with students, tourists and day trippers, vast sections of Bloomsbury retain a quiet, residential feel year round and throughout the week.
