Nice small hotel close to many attractions in the city and also near Russell Sq. underground station. Staff very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was good with a selection of produce to suit most tastes. Room clean and tidy and had everything that we needed for a good stay. We also dined in the restaurant for dinner on one occasion... More

Evening meal for hungry group has marred the stay by dint of slow service when seemingly quiet. All else adequate but unremarkable. Seen and tidy. Ii like the giasnt phone in reception. Good location. Friendly staff but small rooms and tiny lift.

Stayed one night to go to a show, located close to tube station. Pleasant, helpful and friendly staff. Very small lift to an equally small but adequate room. Very comfortable bed, although understandably, rather a lot of road noise. All in all, a pleasant and comfortable stay

A midweek business trip. Friendly check in gave me a good feeling about the place. Smallest lift I've ever been in took me up to a disappointingly small room although it was clean and with a comfortable bed. Opted to eat in but when advised of a long wait I elected to go elsewhere. Breakfast next day was very good... More

Small room, reasonably furnished but will only small desk work if you're travelling for work. Room so small that you can't sit at the desk and see the flat screen TVs. Only viewable from the bed. Receptionists were friendly although there was quite a long queue waiting to check in. No double glazing, and busy road mean that this isn't... More

Set within a rather attractive red brick building, the rooms at the Bloomsbury Park are not bad for London and the hotel is well kept. Sitting right in the middle between Russell Square and Holborn it is perfectly placed, not only for the British Museum but most of central London, with Covent Garden within a few minutes walk and from...

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.
