Stay in this area for work and used to always aim for the Hilton until recently when their prices have skyrocketed. Only a few doors away, the Bloomsbury is fine as a replacement. Comfortable bed and room, good free wifi and the in-house restaurant is ok, for breakfast anyway, didn't try anything else. Plenty of good restaurants locally if you... More

We stayed in this hotel over a weekend and found it all we hoped for. In particular the staff were charming and helpful. The room was small for us but then we were in central London, however all was very clean, the bathroom was well appointed with nice clean, white towels too. All in all we were very pleased.

Had a fantastic weekend and what a lovely hotel. Very reasonably priced and the location is fantastic for walking to the pubs and restaurants. Would recommend to anyone! I know the area which does help but it's still a great location.

Stayed here for one night. Room was a decent size and clean. However, no air conditioning, which was a bit of a problem. Free wifi throughout the hotel, which is still unusual for London. Well positioned for Bloomsbury attractions, including the British Museum. Although not double glazed, my room (on sixth floor) was quiet enough throughout the night.

hard to find a good hotel for around £100 per night in central London, but the Bloomsbury was the exception, great location, 5 mins walk from Holborn station, good reception and helpful, rooms clean and well presented, not much to moan about for the price, we would stay there again for sure.

This is a pleasant hotel, with really helpful staff. My room was a fair size with a large bed which was comfortable. The bathroom was fine, the highlight being the excellent shower which had good water pressure. My only real gripe was that the noise from outside, be it traffic or some kind of machinery(air conditioning?) kept disturbing me. Not... More

Great entrance with Huge Chairs to take a photo. Excellent Reception Service. As with most hotels, rooms are quite small, but Ok. Fantastic breakfast provided, and set's you up for the day. Two tube stations quite close, and a bus stop right outside. By Tube, about two minutes to Central London, an by Bus about 10 mins. Highly recommended for... More

Outstanding service from the lady on reception. Nothing was too much trouble, she greeted us every time we saw her and always remembered my name. I had a twin room which was well decorated, fresh and clean. The bathroom was a little small with no bath, only a shower. The room was quiet but the only negative - it was... More

Hotel is very well located for tourists visiting all the major attractions, many within walking distance. Hotel is about 5 mins walk from both Holborn and Russel Square tube stations. The hotel is furnished tastefully in a contemporary design and looks to have been re-furbished recently. Our room was small but very clean with everything we needed. The staff were... More
