Booked 3 rooms for an adult family visit to British Museum. All rooms were fresh and lovely. Nice bar to relax in for the evening, and the buffet breakfast was delightful and good value. We didn't eat in as there are loads of restaurants to choose from. Will certainly rebook when next visiting the area.

We booked here not really knowing where to stay in London as a first time visitor but I would recommend this to anyone. It's close to 2 tube lines which can get you to most attractions and it's within easy walking distance of good restaurants. The bar and restaurant is great and the staff were all really friendly.

I stayed at the Mercure Bloomsbury for 7 nights in July. I found it to be a great hotel located conveniently to central London: only a short walk away from many attractions and transport options. The staff are friendly and the rooms comfortable. The shower was great, which is hard to find in London hotels. I would definitely stay here... More

Stayed last year, very well positioned (city bound bus stop literally on the doorstep). Outbound stop is a short walk away. Hotel is not too far from Euston Station. Standard room was compact - but had everything you'd need in working order. The floor we were staying on had been recently painted and was in very good order. Good breakfast.

This hotel is well located and was well priced for a London hotel. That said the room was small and 2 of us were supposed to share it as friends. The bed was too small for 2 friends to share (a double) and when we asked to be moved to a twin we were asked to pay an additional 30... More

We stayed in a deluxe double room at the Mercure in Bloomsbury for 4 nights in July. The hotel is in an historic building but the room was of adequate size, clean, and with a very comfortable bed. The bathroom had a big walk in shower that really had some oomph. Great after a long day's sightseeing. On the first... More

We discovered this gem of a hotel restaurant on our first day in London, looking for a clean, comfortable place for dinner in Bloomsbury, after a long days travel. It was the menu displayed at the door that first tempted us to enter the restaurant, and secondly the friendly nature of the staff who greeted us. We thoroughly enjoyed our... More

Very conveniently located to explore by foot the central London, we also discovered here a very special Mercure: incredible attentive, courteous and effective personnel, an exquisite breakfast served with class (high quality buffet + included orderable a-la-carte selected options).

Having spent 3 nights with my daughter in London I will thank the staff at the Mercure Bloomsbury for a very warm hospitality. Always ready to help and always keen on giving the best and most correct service. The staff had a very nice attitude towards the guest and among each other.

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.
