I get to London several times a year. I have always stayed at the St. Giles since it is a good value for the price. It is nice to have the YMCA available. The rooms are clean, but not spacious. Make sure you request a room facing Bedford Ave since the hotel is near the main road to hospital and... More

Also it is very close to the underground stations. The hotel it self had everything you would need . Very clean, good coffee shop and a great breakfast. The... More

Normally we stay at Premier Inns but this time we were with a friend from abroad and were going to a performance at Ronnie Scott's in Soho. We opted for what we hoped would be something a little more luxurious and were not disappointed. The hotel is minutes from Tottenham Court Road station (if you don't take the wrong turning,... More

A group of us stayed here for two weeks and I do agree that the location was nice being close to the theatres, Covent Garden, and Oxford Street for shopping, but it is also near SoHo so it was alwsys very busy. Personally, I prefer a quieter location with less people. The rooms are incredibly small, and while this was... More

My daughter and I recently returned from a shopping trip and stayed in St Giles. It is a lovely hotel, in a great location, just a few minutes walk from Oxford St. and not to far from Covent Garden, the British Museum and the theaters/shows. We had requested an early check in and our room was ready on arrival. The... More

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.
