Have just returned from a two night stay. The hotel is in a great location only about a ten minute walk from Kings Cross and close enough to walk to Covent garden and Soho. The bedroom was quite small but clean and modern with everything you need. Staff were all very welcoming and helpful. A great breakfast to set you... More

Well located close to Holborn / Russel Square this hotel is more a boutique hotel than a traditional big hotel although the brand would suggest. Nice service, nice priviledge rooms, quite, good food, good decoration ... Nothing to say. To be recommanded.

The location of the Mercure London Bloomsbury is wonderful for tourism and also convenient for business. Whilst transport links are abundant, it is also possible to walk from mainline stations at Euston, Kings Cross and the Eurostar hub at St Pancras. West End attractions and the City of London are close by. The British Museum is practically across the street.... More

My fiancé and I stayed here during August Bank holiday and found the hotel to be in a great location. The hotel was surrounded by a wide range of restaurants (check the reviews though) and was just a 10 minute walk from Kings Cross Station. It's also in close proximity to many of points of interest including the British Museum,... More

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. On arrival we booked in and went to the room. Not the best view but it didn't bother us. On inspection the room was big, clean, nice bathroom, comfy bed, fridge and good air con. The problem is the doors on the hotel room must be hollow as you can hear every... More

Room: Compact (just big enough for 2) but very clean and all the facilities you need. We stayed on the 7th floor over the August bank holiday. Great location & for us, quiet & secure.

This hotel has a great location between 2 tube stations allowing access to most areas, yet far enough away from too much noise. Only a short 5-8 min taxi from Kings Cross station. Within short walking distance to a few shops,takeaway bars and restaurants it is ideal. The hotel is clean and well decorated, the rooms are clean with good... More

This hotel is saved by its central location. You are a stone's throw from everything in all directions, which is great, and surrounded by food options if you're looking after yourself during the trip. If you are allocated a satisfactory room, then there will be no other problems as you will not need to intereact with the staff. Otherwise, we... More
