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

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

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.
