The only thing this hotel has going for it is the location. Other than that the place is dirty, the staff are rude and ignorant and the room I stayed in was mainly made up of mould. Oh and the door didn't lock properly and could easily have been smashed in so it wasn't very safe, Avoid!!!

they were very nice people in terms of serving others. However, I experiended a cold room during night, and problems with warm water when I needed a shower. Overall it seems owners needed to cut costs of operation,

You can't just walk straight in to this hotel on arrival, you have to ring a bell. It took ages for someone to answer the door. When I checked it it was very impersonal, I was just given a form and a pen and once I'd completed the form I was given a key. I wasn't told what room I... More

Due to working around 60 days a year in London, all of which are overnight, I have stayed in a lot of budget hotels there. By which I mean A LOT! I'm not picky when it comes to a room with a bed for the night - I'm after something purely functional. Decor doesn't bother me. Stuff like a kettle,... More

This is the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. The room was dirty, the curtains hanging off the wall, broken appliances dotted around the room, and we even felt unsafe staying here. We barely slept as there were people coming and going through the night (make of that what you will), and the room was so very cold. We... More

This is a dire 'hotel' and should be avoided / closed down. How it gets 2 stars is one of life's unsolvable mysteries. I had to reject the two basement rooms I was offered in turn (claustrophobic, smelly, one with a view of an old toilet bowl in the yard) in favour of an upstairs room - at least the... More

My fiance and I stayed here in May as we were visiting London for a friends wedding. We arrived on the Friday afternoon and was supposed to check out on the Sunday morning. Lets put it this way, it's that bad we couldn't face staying the Saturday night after the Friday night. We checked out a day early and lost... More

Staying in Bloomsbury

Neighborhood Profile
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.
