Ghastly!! Entrance is via another hotel next door. Net curtains were so filthy they set off our daughter's asthma! Ensuite was the sort you find on ships (really!), dirty, chipped, cramped. Asked for milk and was given packets of powder. No room for breakfast and we were so very stressed with the conditions that we fled to the nearby Costa... More

Location was good but overpriced for what you get (£50 max!). No coffee, sugar or milk in the room (just tea bags). It was clean(ish) but the floor was so uneven it was difficult to walk on. Things felt like they were going to break if you touched them. Toilet so small I couldn't go to the loo without the... More

I wanted to stay here in Guilford Street, London, as I used to live next door in a flatshare in my youth and actually got married from there. So I thought it would be a thrill to be actually staying there. But - it was very disappointing. The room was tiny which is OK for one person, but the carpet... More

The only good things are staff and location. Everything else is bad. Within 10 minutes you close the windows, the rooms will be filled with a very awful smell. The toilet and bathroom both together have been fitted into a literal 2 feet by 2 feet space. The room shelves have dust on them. One of the cups in my... More

Stayed there one night and to be honest it's not the best,, It's dirty,, and very very basic you need to see the bathroom to believe,, Didn't have breakfast as I could not bring myself to eat there If you don't mind roughing it then fine but you expect a bit more for the price they chargé regardless of it...

We actually made a reservation with Grenville Hotel, having arrived there, there was a sign to go next door to Guilford Hotel. Having spent all day at Great Ormond Street with my Grandson was really tired so got the key to a ROOM in the Guilford Hotel without questioning the fact about Grenville Hotel. The room smelt, the toilet was... 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.
