Spalshed out on a superior but it really didn't feel it was worth it. Very slow and impersonal reception. Breakfast was controlled by a very unfriendly woman who managed things with apparant German efficiency but again with the warmth of a cold day. Try somewhere else.

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.
