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

I've never written a bad review before, but was moved to with this place. What really upset me was that I was cold in the night. The next day I asked for an extra blanket or quilt but the management refused to find me one. How's that for service. Had that not happened I could have overlooked the tatty, smelly,... More

I was a bit worried when I read the other reviews so I was expecting the worst. I booked through Hotels.com and specified four single beds as I was travelling with 3 children. When I arrived, we had been given a room with a double and two single beds. When I brought this to the attention of the manager, he... More

Had a better experience than I expected after reading other reviews. Room was cleaner than expected, but a bit run down. Top pillows (decorative) did not appear too clean. Found someone else's underwear down the side of our bed, chewing gum on the windowsill, bathroom you couldn't swing a cat in, but was relatively clean. All part of the fun!!... 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.
